It's getting away from me!! I am all planned-out at school (lessons planned, tests and quizzes written and copied, etc.), but because I'm spending so much time here, my house is falling apart! I need to start using my time at home more wisely (read: NOT sitting down to watch episode after episode of "How I Met Your Mother" on DVD, and NOT snuggling with Ted for over an hour at a time). I'm going to institute a "5 Minute Cleaning Rule" for myself. Every hour or two, I'm going to set aside 5 minutes, and clean as much as I can as fast as I can. This way I'll not feel like I have to clean all night, and eventually my progress should catch up with my constant need to dirty the space around me (I hope??). This way, every few days I can tackle a big job (laundry, mopping, watching re-runs of "Friends"... you know, only the things that I absolutely MUST do...).
I really wish someone would invent the house that cleans itself. It would be an instant hit, I promise. Until then, I'll just slave away (read: do a few chores a day and gripe loudly), and keep cleaning something that will probably be dirty again in a matter of hours. Humph!
I'd rather be here:
I'd also settle for here:
There's nothing quite like jumping on a bed to instantly turn a frown into a giggle. Happy Thursday, friends!
