Today is a day I look back over that last entry and sigh. I should post pictures of those same rooms today, but I am afraid of showing the world what the house usually looks like! And no, I am not exaggerating. I am not one of those SAHM's who says her house is a disaster because the baseboards have dust on them. Baseboards? I am supposed to clean those? It always amazes me how long it takes to clean, yet how short a time it takes for the tornado to hit. Sort of like those awesome Sunday dinners that take 5 hours to cook and 4.5 seconds to devour. There needs to be a balance. If the house is spotless and it took 5 hours to get it that way, it should be able to stay that way for at least 48 hours. Instead, it takes 5 hours to clean and about 20 minutes to destroy. I'd give up completely and just let it be, but A&E has Hoarders and TLC has Hoarding:Buried Alive. I know we would eventually wind up on one of those shows. I would just tell people we collect things, we don't hoard. At least there wouldn't be moldy pumpkins and rotting roasts in the freezer.
