My apartment is so clean I could eat off it.

And would-be rodents have nothing to eat at all.

I had a five-day weekend over Christmas, in which we went as far as Chinatown for dinner. And after 2.5 days of work I had another four-day weekend to observe the New Year, again with no travel plans. I don't think our apartment has been this clean since I moved in in 2011. Yesterday after taking out the trash, I noticed that the under-sink cabinet where we keep it was a tad gross. So I pulled everything out of there, scrubbed it, and put the trash receptacle back. Then I scrubbed all the cabinet doors, the oven door, and the front of the dishwasher. On top of other recent cleaning sprees in there, I think the only remaining surface that needs cleaning is the top of the fridge.

The 2.5 days of work on December 29-31 were almost a joke, given how many people had taken vacation. I did make headway on projects that only required my input, but that's a small minority. And on the 31st, Erika, Christina, Frances, and I went to lunch at Zengo. It ended up being a nice 2.5 hour diversion from the office, and no one missed us because we were 90% of the people there anyway. The service was pretty thin, but the food was worth it. Even so Zengo can't get Cuban bread exactly right, but I still don't know of any place north of Florida that can either.

Tomorrow work starts up again. I did some emailing and scheduling on Saturday, so I don't feel too intimidated about what lies ahead. The biggest challenge is still communication between departments; while that used to be between DC and the Suburbs Office, it now also includes developers in India. I am the triangulator by default. Anyhow, it's 11 short days until I get time off for MLK Weekend, so not too big a deal.

all of that cleaning; you're going to make a good wife to a man some day.

alternate title: can you come over and clean my place next?

I only enjoyed the outcome. If I could afford it I'd probably hire someone to clean every week.

You sound like a man after my partner's heart.

Let's continue that impression by not discussing the current condition of the bathroom.
