Still Not Posting About Pesach

After all, I have to defend my crown.

I haven't done much either and am getting a bit depressed and very guilty about this?
I enjoy the meaning of the chag but not the preparations at all.

ilanadavita-
Oh, please, don't feel guilty. No sane person enjoys preparing for Pesach. Your preparations can be minimal and still be halachically acceptable. Don't forget: you're only obligated to get rid of the chametz, not the dirt.

But I actually like cleaning for pesach!! Then again, that may prove your point... ahem...

I think for me the fun of cleaning for pesach is that I get to FEEL like I'm a meticulous housekeeper for about a week. And that's about as long as I can take. And I'll admit that I'm getting progressively less meticulous as my cleaning goes on.

I hate to admit but apperently I am not that sane I LOVE PESACH and all that goes with it. I don't have a huge place to clean so that helps but I love the feeling that everything is fresh and organized. I did have to learn the difference of cleaning for pesach vs spring cleaning though. My mother always spring cleaned. Yes, we washed the kitchen walls. The Mr. keeps me from going overboard.

Do you mean that you have a link to the "Get ready for Pesach in 5 minutes" and that you are not sharing it with us?
Seriously I somehow fail to see how I can do that. Any idea is more than welcome.

Maya-
It sounds like you don't like the act of cleaning; you like the results. That makes sense to me.
Mrs. S.-
Aww, shucks, you're too kind.
Mrs. LFD-
see above (response to Maya)
ilanadavita-
I mean that since all you're obligated to do is remove the chametz, then maybe you don't have to clean the whole house. Any section of your house that you don't ever bring food into (like bedrooms and bathrooms) is already chametz-free.

I can't even comment, I'm so tired. (I finally started--shopping).
