Guess Who Has Two Thumbs And A Clean Stovetop? This Guy.

Well, clean-ish. There's still a bit of hot cocoa mess caked onto one of the burners, which is a sore spot because a friend was kind enough to clean our stove after it being super gross for a long time, and then my husband boiled over his hot cocoa and left this chocolate sludge on the burner THE VERY NEXT DAY.

I've been too frustrated to deal with it since. But UfYH has a challenge this week of spending 20 minutes a day on things you've been putting off. For me, those are the stovetop and the fridge.

The stovetop is mostly clean now, baking soda is magical, you guys. But there's still some chocolate gross on it that will take a few soaks and scrubs to get gone.

My second "putting off" thing is the refrigerator, cleaning it out. I will probably spend twenty minutes on that today.

We also have a tarp from Flipside that I really need to wash.

CLEANING. It's what I'm trying to get better at.

The Internet: It's Pretty Awesome.

I don't know how people did things before the Internet. Seriously, every day that I'm alive, I'll be grateful this invention exists.

Thanks to the Internet, and the people who use it, I was able to post what I thought was just a rant about how I have a difficult time cleaning up. I got two responses, one suggesting Habit RPG and another suggesting Unfuck Your Habitat. Utilizing the two of them, I've got a clean stovetop and I'm about to have a clean fridge.

It's like friggen' magic. I wasn't even LOOKING for answers and I got them.

INTERNET AND ITS CITIZENS, YOU ARE AWESOME.
