Signs that you’re moving

If you’d asked me a few months ago if I’d ever consider spending a Saturday night in cleaning the bathroom, my answer would have been a resounding no. Ditto to packing clothes and other items into boxes on a Saturday night. But then again, if you’d asked me a few months ago, I probably wouldn’t have foreseen that I’d be moving house in a couple of weeks.

I guess I’ve fully arrived at the age of compromise. I’ve been finding that recently there’s not nearly as much time for pure leisure, like sitting down and watching a football game uninterrupted – a result of many factors, including more responsibility at my job, taking on a night course and moving.

But this past Saturday I feet I really crossed a threshold when I picked up the toilet brush, passing up a night of leisure enjoying the Raptors game so that I could have a few hours of leisure on Sunday and watch the final race of the Formula 1 season and a few hours of NFL games.

You probably don’t want to read too much about my cleaning techniques, so instead I’ll leave you with a fun bit of advertising related to this situation. I’m not endorsing the product, though I have interviewed the creative director behind it and can say he’s a very pleasant guy. For an ad about a bathroom cleaner, it doesn’t get much better than this.
