It’s Monday….the dreaded trash day. When I think of trash day, all sorts of memories come rushing into my head. I think about the times that the trash can lids were blown off and tumbling up the street, leaving an odd sort of treasure hunt for us….finding the lids!!! Memories of when the kids took out the trash cans and gently scraped the side of my car as they drug it out of our oh-so-tiny garage…ahhhh!!!!
“Trash day” can also generate good thoughts too….. I think of it as a day to gather up all of the debris, the junk, the refuse, the rubbish and waste and get it out of my house!! I start by having one of my kids gather all of the trash cans in the house and bring them to the kitchen. I then dump all of the trash into one big garbage bag. On top of that, (while that child is gathering the trash) I open up the refrigerator and pull out all of the leftovers and dib dabs that have not gotten eaten in the week and throw it in the trash bag too. Yes, I have a friend that will even go one step further…she will wash each shelf of her fridge while there is so much open space. Whew!!! I’m not that motivated….YET!!! Anyway, it feels good to get all that doesn’t belong, out of the house and to the curb!!
Do you have a similar routine on trash day??
