One of the comments after the last post mentioned how productive I’ve been. Let’s just keep it real for a moment. My house looks like this way too often:
And like this:
Sure, it often only takes a quick clean-up, maybe even just 15 minutes, to get it looking like this:
And then it’s that much more depressing when, less than 24 hours later, it looks like this again:
But that’s just ONE room. 15 minutes x ONE room = 15 minutes total. No big deal to do that daily.
However, 15 min x SIX (or more) rooms = 1 1/2 hours (or more) total! Suddenly, it’s not so “quick.”
Having a weekly cooking/cleaning exchange with Suzanne helps a lot!
So does having messes that clean themselves up.
...which grew legs and turned into this!
P.S. In other news that makes me laugh: Last night, while The Man and I were watching TV, we saw a commercial for the new Glade plug-ins that expel fragrance only when someone is in the room, using some sort of motion sensors. His response: Wouldn’t tooty detectors be better?
