1. I thought about it
But I'm hanging out on the Internet instead. Maybe later I'll get out the vacuum and go after the cat hair.

3. I'm pretty sure that thought alone cleans nothing
but let me know, ok?!

22. I think you're right
Not much got done. But I did put some chicken, heavy cream, and mushrooms into the crock pot for dinner. And by the time we eat it'll be mostly dark so we won't see the dirt.

4. That's what I did on Friday and Saturday, but I know how it got that way.
It's what happens when you are (and by "you" I mean me):

1. Kind of a slob
2. At work from 9am to 9pm all week long
3. Almost never get a full day off

But now the house is super-duper clean and pretty again, and I don't know what to do with myself. (Ordinarily I'd watch tv before going to bed and think, Man, I've got to clean this crapheap up. Now it's clean, and I have to think of ways to entertain myself as I maintain the clean, because I don't want to spend my next two days off in a row cleaning it again.)

7. I should be
It's a total disaster right now. I did clean it two days ago but is sure isn't clean now. My MIL is coming next weekend. I think I wait a day or two before I start cleaning again, I don't want to have to do it twice.

8. I have to clean the entire house today...
I'm moving.. And I won't do a very good job cleaning.. This is way to much to handle by myself. The security deposit can fuck off.

I still haven't moved my shit yet... Argghhh...

10. I don't know if I'll get the whole house done...
I'm starting by vacuuming cat hair. By the time I finish that, I'll probably give up. It's so freaking boring. My mother's house was always spotless -- that didn't rub off on me.

13. Not me.
I had it spotless from top to bottom before Christmas, so all we really had to do was wash the bedding used by our guests, pick up the Christmas flotsam and jetsam, and run the vacuum.

Done.

14. ME! Ugh!
I worked almost every day this month and my boyfriend is coming for a visit tomorrow - the place really needs a good cleaning (and yes, I should get off the computer now). :D

17. We hosted Christmas Eve and Christmas Day,
so the house isn't in too bad of shape right now. It's probably cleaner right now than it was for 95% of the last year. :)

23. I am taking a break from scrubbing the bathroom walls
Why? Why? Do bathroom walls really need scrubbing? Why don't I just have a nice glass of wine and chill?

25. Just the kitchen.
Including dusting the blinds, the chore I hate beyond all others. That was enough already for today. LOL. We'll do the rest of the house next weekend after putting the decorations away.
