I had kind of an “awakening” the last time I scrambled to clean the house the last time we had a visitor. I decided it was time for a change, so I said aloud:
Enough is enough! I have had it with these mother f—ing snakes on this mother f—-ing plane.
Wait…that wasn’t the quote! It went more like this:
Get off my plane.
Dammit, that’s not it, either! Here’s what I said:
I’m mad as Hell and I’m not going to take it anymore.
No, that’s not what I said, either! But my fist-in- the-air sense of resolve was… the same!
My husband and I are both committed to trying to keep things neater around the house. We’re going to set aside weekly cleaning time, try to stop small messes before they become big ones, wage warfare on visible clutter, etc…
I’m not expecting miracles! But if we can keep the lower level to a state where it takes no more than a half hour to make things presentable to guests – that would be a Hell of a thing!
