Look, I’m going to be 38 this year, and I am finally coming to some realizations about myself. One of these things is this: I have never been, and I probably never will be, a good housekeeper. I am cluttery, I am lazy, and I kind of just don’t care. I like having pets, I do not like vacuuming.
Dude. I’ve been planning the same thing forever. I am not a good housekeeper. I am a clutter bug and totally messy. I don’t vacuum unless company is coming over and don’t even ask when I last washed out my fridge. Plus, housekeeping isn’t that expensive. Like, a lot of places will ask around $100 for their first time over, when they scrub up all the things that I’ve never done (you’re supposed to wipe down walls??) and after that, it’s $40 a visit. If you have them over once a month, it’s not that bad.
My problem is cleaning up enough to have them over. I know they’re expecting a dirty oven and messy microwave - that’s cool. But I am too embarrassed to let them see the cobwebs behind the toilet. So I keep putting it off until the next time I clean up… which will be roughly Christmas.
