Gack! Where did this week go? My to-do list looks just like it did on Monday. There is one tiny victory to report: my house is marginally cleaner than it has been other weeks, but only marginally. There are still dust-bison in the corners, and nothing else got done. Wow, I didn’t used to think housework was a full-time thing, but of course, all that means is that I’ve never done it full-time.
Was it Phyllis Diller? Erma Bombeck? Peg Bracken? Some really smart woman or other. Said: “Cleaning the house while your kids are still growing is like shoveling the walk before it stops snowing.” She was so right. Devoting your attention to housework is basically just a way to stay busy and have nothing to show for it.
Song du jour of the day: INXS, Devil Inside. Another one from my fabulous mixmania CD.
