In an effort to save money/eat more healthy, I've been making my dinner (practically) every night, over the last couple of weeks.
I love to cook, but I hate the post dinner clean up . Not only are there plates, glasses, pots, and pans to clean up, but I seem to be unable to cook without spilling something on the floor....my mop hasn't been dry for a long time. With a full belly, it's so tempting to just say 'screw it...I'll clean up in the morning'....but I just can't sleep right without rubbing one out first knowing that there's a dirty dish sitting in the sink...I'm anal like that (don't go there).
I've really been wanting to scrub my house from top to bottom lately. I think I'm going to kick off "Project Clean House" this weekend, by going through closets and purging all of the crap that I don't need or use.
I have some really nice Berber carpeting throughout the house that's basically made up of light beige tones (the landlord chose the carpet....I wish it was hardwood flooring), but if you saw the current state of the filthy carpet, you'd call me a liar and say that the color is closer to grey...Nearly 2 years have gone by since I've cleaned the carpet....it's so embarrassing. I have quotes from 2 different carpet cleaners, now all I have to do is make the damn call.
I used to watch Friends back in the day...David Schwimmer's goofy character used to make me violently angry, but I could relate to "Monica's" need for cleanliness....my favorite episode from the show was when the friends found a key that opened the secret closet door which Monica kept locked...and when they opened it they discovered Monica's dark secret...her closet was a total mess.
My garage is Monica's closet...oh, the shame!
