I’m really kind of disgusting. I’ll admit it. I’m a terrible housekeeper. My poor mother tried to teach me, but I refused to learn. And its not really that I don’t know how, its that I’m lazy and hate doing it. You give me a creative task and I’m all over it, but you ask me to wipe down a stove or dust a bookshelf and I’ll find any opportunity to not do it. Even taking out the trash is a chore I despise and don’t do as often as I should. My apartment got bad enough that I finally broke down and hired someone to clean my apartment. It looks great!
There’s just something nice about returning home from the mess of all messes to a good smelling, organized, clean place to live. I can sit in my living room and watch TV and not look around thinking about all the junk mail and pizza boxes I have to deal with. I can go into the kitchen and find the stove. And I can go into the bathroom and not trip over old body wash bottles when stepping into the shower. Its really amazing.
I woke up this morning feeling better than I have in awhile and am more motivated to do things. I’ll maintain the place a bit better than before but the best news is the cleaners will come back again soon and keep me where I want to be . . . in a clean home! Its truly one of my favorite things.
