Here's the deal. I am coming out of the closet to explain my lack of energy. You have all seen my house at one point or another and know the sickness I have of keeping it clean. I'm not sure when I developed this illness, but I think it was living in my 1st apartment in Athens. You know there is something absolutely fantastic about living on your own... you clean and things stay just where you left them! It really is magical. Anyway, the Hubby has been rockstar fantastic about pulling his weight plus some around the house these past few weeks. However, as the days go on I am falling down on the job. I have no idea why, but I'm about to give you a little glimpse into my clean little home... well, the home that was once clean...
Dirty Dishes... this DOES NOT happen at my house! You may ask if I have a dishwasher or if it is broken. Yes I have a dishwasher, a great dishwasher that is working just fine. I turned on the dishwasher Sunday night and on Monday after dinner there were still clean dishes in it. I decided it would be easier to hand wash the dinner dishes and unload the dishwasher later. Then I had a great idea to let them "soak for a while". 24 hours later they are still soaking and now I think the water is gross. So, I still have a full dishwasher, dirty dishes in the sink and I wasted a sink-full of over-priced lavender environmentally friendly dish washing soap.
What happens when you leave clean laundry in the dryer? Your husband takes it out to put something else in and leaves it on the chair. And what happens when you leave it on the chair? Patty Cakes makes it her bed. She is so stinkin cute that the clothes are still in the chair, but they will have to go soon. Wasting water to re-wash a load of clean clothes covered in cat hair.
What, my friends, do I want for my 30th birthday? A maid. Not necessarily full time, but just to get me back where I started. So, I'm now off to wash the dishes, really I am, or maybe stop by the couch and watch American Idol.
