I Surrender

Readers of my blog know of my love-hate issues with cleaning. I even wrote of one episode here, which I consider a true testament of lasting friendships I have made over the years.

Many people wonder, why, why, Katie, are you such a slob.

I have no answer, but I like to think I make up for this one flaw with my wit and charm, my creativity, my open mindedness, my general laid back nature and warm heart.

It still doesn’t change the fact that any friend who comes to visit soon goes running out the door.

I hate that!

So I’m waiting for Maria to come to make her estimate, and then I will never be a slob again.

And then I am trying to figure out just what I will be like as a person. This is scary. I am pretty sure that once my place is spotless, I will probably have no faults.

So I’m not quite sure how I’m going to live with myself. I’ll have to develop some other personality flaws, just to create a balance.

If you can think of any that you think might be helpful, please send them in!

Wait. I see I am already losing my humility. So let’s table this discussion for now.

    Does Maria have life insurance?

    How bad could it possibly be? We need pictures to get a good idea of the magnitude of your messiness.

    It is bad. Descriptions from non-partial witnesses run along the lines of “typhoon,” “hell hole,” and my now personal favorite, “unique”.

    I am tempted to post before and after pictures, but in many ways, I feel that my apartment is a manifestation of my mind. No one needs to go there.

  4. I have been concerned about my condition, but now I realize that I’m not totally unique when it comes to my lack of tidyness or organization skills. My small house is like my mind also, and it is best I never let anyone wonder in there alone. Paid housekeeper, wow, thats what I call thinking outside the clutter.
