Wednesday for the Win!
Yesterday was hectic in that my family didn't get home until 3am Tuesday from the convention, so they flung all their amazing shit shit on my pristine counter and went to sleep until I don't even know when because I had to leave for an early appointment.
I then proceeded to waste an entire tank of gas going to the DMV, and then all the way home to retrieve the social security card they did not inform me I needed, and then back, to pay $25.50 for a picture that is going to be the cover for the 2009 Amphibian Almanac. (Shut up Debe, it's like 4-something am.)
Somewhere in there I did a walk-through of Marionette's, whose house I will be cleaning on Fridays so they can show it on the weekends. I have a superstition about committing to such things and am certain to be stricken with Hanta Virus immediately.
Today is wonky. I am completely disoriented. Last I knew Debe was bringing me food and now it is pre-rooster o'clock and I'm eating lemon cucumbers.
I see shadows of things in disarray and no children, who must have coerced Papa into spending the night at my mom's while I did my interpretive dance of Rip van Winkle.
Today in the dark I have:
-Found my phone, which was open and up the back of my shirt, wtf? Awkward.
-Wiped down what I could see of the kitchen.
-De-cluttered the computer desk whereupon I sit.
-Waited for dawn so I could crank up my playlist and get busy for real.
-Become the Basics Brigade. I am coming to check your laundry and dishes. And yes Amy, I remember how to get to Makai.
-Clean your kitchen floor hardcore.
-Use some all-purpose spray on your sinks, tubs, toilets reallyfast so you have to wipe them out. Bath mats in washer yet? If so, sweep/Swiff underneath.
-Empty all wastebaskets.
-Sweep non-carpeted areas.
-Pick up 20 things from anywhere.
-Put extraneous crap away in your room and order your kids to do the same.
-Dust a bookshelf.
I'm right there with you on all this today, plus my mind will compel me to find new and exciting ways in which to scrub my house until it becomes 2,000 sq. ft. larger.
Report back troops!
