The Smell of Cleaning Products In the Morning...

No, not this morning. This morning I'm procrastinating over a cup of coffee trying to figure out the best plan for getting a regular stream of visitors...

It seems the best way to keep the apartment as clean as it is this morning.

I mean, you throw a party? And sure your home is perfectly clean with all the right foods and flowers and such...but the next day? Along with the possible hang over? Is the mess. I hateses the mess.

But guests coming up to go out on the town in Seattle-ville and and then hang out until you fall asleep on the couch--okay, until I fall asleep on the couch as everyone else is still talking about cars and computers and classes and what-not (just can't keep up with the kids these days--shut up, I know Andy is older than I am...) and then somehow I get to bed and the next morning as we all sit around drinking coffee with only a few tell-tale bottles and glasses out? Yep, much more my style these days.

Washing an extra set of sheets is way easier than trying to get a wine stain out of the carpet ANY day. And the place is still so clean!!

Andy and I are not Pig-Pens or anything, but Dayumn, we are messy. I think it's that combination of always working + never home + L-A-A-Z-Y! = just kick it under the coffee table and no one will notice.

Okay, must motivate for work now...

This picture has nothing to do with this post, but I think it's about time for a visual, and besides, Laura said she liked how I stuck random Italy pictures into my blog posts..

Another strategy is to go on vacation (highly recommended in any case) and then come back and realize what a mess your place is, and clean it, which is what I did last night. I've never had so much energy to clean before. It seemed wrong to come back to a dirty place. But otherwise, yeah, the constant stream of visitors is the only other motivator for me.

Nice painted sicilian cart!

Ha! At first I thought that pic was suppose to be your apt.! But then I quit skimming and actually know, I don't think anyone on their death bed said "Gee, I wish I cleaned my house more..." maybe they wished they changed the sheets before they laid down to die.
