I took a day off from work to do chores. Say what? You know you aren’t keeping up with life when you need extra time at home to clean up after yourself. I don’t mind my own mess. It’s rare that it’s unclean, but common that it’s untidy. I try not to be a packrat and have succeeded in not bringing more things into the apartment in recent years, but that wasn’t always the case. I have managed to part with possessions here and there, so it amazes me when I look around and see how many things I still have.
My partner and his feline companion move in tonight, so the cleaning binge is more for them than it is for me and my felines. Yeah, we’re going to have 3 cats. Have I mentioned I don’t like to vacuum? That’s already a problem. 3 cats are going to make it a bigger problem. I have managed to wash, but not fold, 7 loads of laundry, and rearrange furniture. 6 hours to go and I still have folding, dishes, trash and rug cleaning ahead. It may be time for a nap.
