i should clean more often.
it's not that i'm a bad housekeeper, but i can get lazy. i was a lot more conscientious when i lived with other people.
i find i have a fairly high tolerance for my own mess. particularly when it involves dusting or laundry.
but there is nothing like the feeling of coming home to a freshly cleaned and straightened house. no random clutter, bed made, laundry put away, dishes-free sink, sparkly bathroom...
no wonder rich folks will go thru so much for a good maid.
