Wow it's been a few days since I posted and I promised myself I would write every day. So I could get better at it and more disciplined. And bore my three readers even more completely than writing just once in awhile. But here it is 4 days since my last post and I just realized that I have not fulfilled this promise to myself - or to you. Like a New Year's resolution. Or a diet. Over before I ever really get started.
But that's not what the point of this post is. The point of today's post is cleaning. Do you clean? I mean, are you the kind that worries when your carpeting isn't freshly vacuumed? When you can see a thin layer of dust that no one else can see? When a book is lying on the coffee table and it isn't positioned perfectly? Oh, you don't do that, huh?
My family calls me "right-angles". I can always tell when something I have set somewhere has been moved because it will be left askew. And that is unsettling. For me, not for anyone else. It's one of my more endearing quirks. Do people even use the word askew?
Today I had the carpeting cleaned (blame it on the dog) and that led to the need to clean everything - inside and a little bit outside - because I want it all clean at one time. For the 10 minutes that it will last. It's always too good to last very long. I would have to live alone for that and, well, that isn't happening any time soon. Thank goodness. Although solitude (and cleanliness) does sound ok from time to time. Oh and I got my hair cut, and trimmed my son's nails...see, have to do everything on one day. Except I didn't get the car washed. Bummer.
I'm not sure why I have the compulsion to do it this way. It's frankly too exhausting to clean like this and then I start rambling more than I usually do because I'm so tired. You didn't notice that, did you? And all because I think if I get it all done in one day, it won't have to be done again any time soon. Yeah right. Tomorrow it won't look like it was ever cleaned. At least not to me. And let's face it, that's really all that matters.
Time for American Idol.....see you tomorrow - or whenever I remember to write again.
