At the risk of making this blog sound like a commercial, Joe picked up a Swiffer Wet Jet after I recommended it, and he loves it. Score one for being able to start mopping at the farthest point from the kitchen (or bathroom, or cellar) doorway, mop until one reaches said doorway, discard the used mop pad, and presto! You're all done. No bucket of scuzzy water to discard, no wringing anything out, no need to re-enter the room before the floor is dry and leave a trail of footprints.
I'd recommend looking into either the Wet Jet, or any products like it, to anyone who hates mopping. Check online and read the product reviews to decide which option suits you best.
In other news, there are lots of reports on CNN regarding the 9/11 anniversary. :o( What a horrid day. But I guess anniversary reports are a good thing, in a way. If it weren't a slow news day, they wouldn't be able to devote this amount of airtime to anniversary coverage.
Once again, I feel compelled to remind the Stripe Committee, "You're lucky to be cats". They'll never need to think about the horror of the news stories that we humans see (and cause... sigh) on a daily basis.
