Each Saturday this month we've gone to clean the Church. The primary and youth were assigned to clean last week. Not a lot of participation – especially from the youth (Jenna was the only one from primary and only one youth leader) and the floor was in need of major vacuuming.
The mess I mention in this post was confined to just one room – while it appeared that either decorations had been dragged across each room and the halls in the Church or else a naughty elf went around pouring sparkling dust.
There are three wards which share the building. One in particular seems to get blamed for any mess that may be left – though I did find evidence of their ward in March when I went in to vacuum all that popcorn. They just seem to use more in the way of decorations, party more, and have the reputation of not cleaning up.
We usually get a lot of support on Saturday mornings. We show up at 8:00 and have the entire building cleaned long before 9:00 am. But not today. We were there for the entire hour. In that time I did only four rooms. And the vacuume was actually working. But, oh, my. The entire building?
Actually, I don’t know if there were any sparkles in the chapel. The chapel is always done by the same person who takes charge with his vacumme and has never let himself get trapped into another assignment. I understand. That was my baby when we lived in our last house.
I don’t just understand why glittery specks appeared in every room though. But the trees in the foyer looked quite naked. Perhaps they had been fully decorated last week but dragged around until bare all over the building. That'll be my conclusion. Dragged throughout the building by some naughty elf (or children)
