A True Story

The other day, Andy said, "You know, one of these days, we should really put some effort into straightening up around here."

And while I admit that we may have a bit of a mess/disaster issue on our hands when I am losing things - knitting needles . . . books - in the couch on a nightly basis (and we can't even blame children for the current state of our happy abode), my knee-jerk reaction to Andy's critique was, "It's fine. NBD." Who doesn't feel more at home in a home that looks like a tornado ripped through it?




Obviously, it could be way worse. Conversely, it could also be a lot better.

But like Scarlett O'Hara always said, I'll think about this mess in October.

Oh wait, Scarlett said "tomorrow," didn't she. . .

  1. You just need one OCD friend to help out. You sit and sip a cup of coffee and they rip through the place like the good fairy they are.

  4. I am all for keeping frills in the kitchen. I recently and accidentally I located even a fire extinguisher in the kitchen, under the sink, behind all sort of things and not easy to get at all - I mean if in case of a fire in the kitchen I would remember where I have seen it last.

  8. I am so exhausted lately that I have left my usual perfectionism go. I think Lukus really appreciates not having to deal with my clean freak outs, because as soon as I start prepping for baby I am sure I will be more obsessive than ever.....
