Cleaning House

My house is a pit. A pit of despair. And I really want to do something about it.

Think your house is worse? We just looked at a cute video of Norah dancing and decided it could never be shown to anyone because of the 5,000 toys strewn around and other assorted messiness. How sad is that?

At one point, I made a list of everything that needs to be done, from minor repairs, to cleaning, to whatever. It was so long, I had to go get myself a drink. And then I lost it and repressed the memory of it ever being made. Of course, I just remembered. Excuse me while I fix myself a little drink...

Okay. So, I need a better approach. I learned of a website that can help: Flylady. Anyone heard of it? She gives you assignments and tips and gets you into a pattern, or habit, of cleaning and organizing. But it's not supposed to be overwhelming like my frickin' "honey-do" list, or whatever wussy women call it when they want to nag at their lazy-ass husbands, but in a cute, non-naggy sort of way.

I'm going to get started tomorrow. The first step is to clean your kitchen sink. I can do that. I hope the second step is to hire a cleaning person with the funds I'm about to receive from a distressed dignitary from Nigeria. Cross your fingers!
