Apathy

Yeah... I should put away that laundry.

And get those kids to bed.

Clean up that table.

And- oh mmy! That porch.

Those dusty bunnies wouldn't stand a chance if I would just run that mighty vacuum.

Oh darnit. Right. That cat really needs to get fixed.

I was gonna figure out e-bay so I could sell off some of my immense collections to pull together some money for the kid's europe trip...

oh.... that bed. Too bad that it got stripped and washed and re-made yesterday, just in time to be pee-peed again. I don't suppose I get a credit for having done it yesterday? No?
well. I guess I should go make that bed.

That wall bothers me every single day. It's awful and ugly. It got patched about five years ago. I should go buy some paint, wash that wall, and look forward to painting it this weekend.
Yawn.
Yeah, there's stuff that I should probably do.

Looks to me like life happens there. Nothing bad about that.

I have a list on an ugly piece of paper right now that tells me all the things I should do. At least your list is artistic and beautiful!

My mother once told me that a home is the people inside - not the way it looks...thank God for that! I love being busy with the kids because then I have an excuse not to have time to clean - my worst days are when I have nothing to do and read and watch movies instead of cleaning house and that is because it is so boring.......cleaing brings you satisfaction for maybe an hour once you are done...at least a book you can read for hours and movies are at least 2 hours! I know, excuses, excuses, excuses....so don't visit tonight because my son has a hockey game and I can ignore chores once again! Yeah! MK

What is your cats name? Male or female? We have an orange cat coming to visit our place all the time trying to date my cat...just wondering if it may be yours? MK

Some strategic soft lighting, a little apple juice & cinnamon simmering away, a good jazz CD floating in the background, crackers & cheese on the table.... nobody will even notice undone chores if you greet they with a cheery smile!

So glad to see that you have dust rabbits too!!!!
You know I look at houses online that are for sale and I am always drawn to lovely newer homes that look all clean and orderly. They look so impressive.... until someone REAL moves in to them.
I love being one of the REAL ones!!

Go pour yourself some gin.

mmmm...
friday.....
gin.

You know... I don't care when people come to my house when it is "undone". It's just that all that clutter makes ME feel cluttered and yucky.

And I got it all done. For today. Guess what? tomorrow? It'll all magically re-appear all over the floor, couch, bathroom, blah, blah....

It just gets a little repetitive and boring, doesn't it?

I would be happy to paint your wall for you and all I ask in return is the pleasure of your company..
and maybe a few industrial strength refreshments.
