Confessions of an Enigma

big sigh of relief

last week i came to terms

that my house will never be

as clean and immaculate

as others

and then…

we made plans to have company

while they don’t care a smidge

about my domestic skills

(or lack thereof)

when someone comes over

i take the opportunity

to tidy up

at least a little

and that can be a good thing


i could get used to this

seeing the top of the dining room table

having some place to put things

on the kitchen counter

not having to move things

out of the way

to turn on the TV

(stability balls interfere with the signal from the remote)

finding no hairballs in the corners

etc etc etc

but don’t worry

this is not the demise of yet another horrible housekeeper

just a blip in the radar
