I am taking the day off to clean the house. typically, I clean on sundays (wife works) and wednesdays are reserved for emergency laundry loads (such as "I forgot that I needed to wear pants tomorrow").

tonight, my friend is coming into town and bringing his new girlfriend. although I would never take a day off to clean for him, I have no idea what to expect of her.

so, to minimize risk of her annoying me, I am giving the place "the works".

the cat is "confused but happy to see me home". at least, he is until the vacuum starts.

poll to follow.

that's extremely expensive, but so very sexy.

Billy Nye is just the guy to overcome my natural skepticism.

do you own one?

I may buy the basic model. I'm crazy about chemicals and even use chrysanthemum-based bug sprays. the less chemicals I can spray around the house, the better.

that device is pure genius.

"all the fucking time."

my brother is a huge fucking mess. i'm constantly picking up after him.

i was a lot better off by myself last year in that regard. i used to only clean probably once a week.

I'd love to be constantly maintaining,
but my man and I are somewhat packratty, and keep things arranged in such spontaneous and odd ways that things actually look interesting around here, and I hate to fuck it all up.

It's taken a toll on my mind though, so I've been trying to organize just one small corner at a time.

Really though, I probably wont get through all this shit unless we decided to move.

I tidy it up once a week, so it doesn't get evolved into a lair of terror, but I should get rid of lots of shit and mop the fucking floor.

my desk at work is a horrible mess. the house, at the dirtiest, is cleaner that most people's at their best.

anyways, mein auto ist kaput and the rescue operation put a snag in the day.

this girl is getting "looks real good" instead of "wow. how do you make that sparkle??"

that makes it seem as if I haven't done anything. that's not true. I've done two loads of laundry (including sheets), dishes, swept kitchen and hardwoods as well as eradicated a minor plague of insects. all I can say is, at least it ain't grasshoppers or spiders (this time).

well, as you can imagine, they are jumpy and spread out in a circle rather quickly. spiders will lurk, but not grasshoppers. spraying them wouldn't help and they don't sweep up well. you gotta catch 'em all.

this was just an explosion of large aphids. I brought in some plants when it iced and have left them in the laundry room. the bugs most have exploded out of their sticky pods within the last few hours. it wasn't anything that a broom, vacuum and windex couldn't fix. there were easily 1000's of them though.

I've been plagued by grasshoppers twice, spiders once and now these little bastards.

My house at its cleanest is dirtier than most people's at their worst.

We have a very small house which you would think means less cleaning and so a cleaner house. But all it means is that the mess is concentrated into a smaller area.
