Wednesday for Weaklings
Yesterday was clutter with a chance of dishes. Kind of a weird day. Quinn, our dish-meister, was of course gone building nuclear weapons so I had to gaze upon the leaning tower of cups every time I entered the kitchen, until his candy ass finally got home and did his chores.
I was up early, did amazing things, fell asleep, awoke to randomness, like the mangoes, went to an appointment, had company, and then went to Debe's to compare hues of our respective blue periods.
Truth be told it was a really shit day. None of my cleaning made sense, so of course 700 people came over and needed to use the bathroom. Late in the day I was presented with the pink roses (my all-time favourite) pictured above, but all things considered, they made me feel worse.
Today we have company in the morning (who asks to come over at 10:00am???) which means I'll be Cinderella from 6:00am on, then an appt. in the afternoon, then bring up the caboose of the house, which will have undoubtedly accumulated piles and specks onto every surface.
-Refold blankets in living room, OCD-style.
-De-clutter counter, put roses on the dining room table.
-Wipe the kitchen floor, all 11 corners.
-Clean and organize my glove compartment, which is really more of an actual apartment. Do I really need to save every empty Starbucks gift card my kids have given me over five years? But but...
-Console too. Goddamn Sharpies, taking over my life like locusts.
-Clear off refrigerator, Todd has gotten a little crazy with coupons.
-Sift through more disks.
-Deal with recycling.
-Kick some laundry ass.
-Don't let the dishes stack up. Tame them. Show them who's boss.
-Wipe down toilets.
-Wipe down all sinks.
-Windex your mirrors.
-Put all clothes away whether they just came from the dryer or the Stone Age. Do it.
-Throw 20 things away.
That wasn't so bad right?
