Saturday is hubby's birthday. I am not and never will be a fantastic ADHD cleaner. Plus the issue of my house being an ark for hobo critters. Today I tackled the fact that my tallish house has a rather small living room. That means not too many seating places IF folks show up. Hubby helped me cart the bench that usually lives by the staircase a few feet to where the Grandma table used to live. (Grandma table went into my side room study catch all.) Now there is a place for two people to sit if they are comfy with each other. Got that done and headed to the now empty area by the stairs- is that a vestible? I scooted all the dusty fur clumps out and wiped down the staircase woodwork. On to picking up 'stuff' and feeling good that the front porch clean up job is done.

I keep thinking that my motivation will return ...... hmmm, nope that hasn't happened ..... then I read what all you've accomplished and I feel I should look harder for it. Well, I did get the tiny porch carpets rinsed off but that's all I'm doin, it's 107f out there.

Maybe should bring blankets and have a picnic on the lawn? You are getting more done than I am.

@GardenGerty It looks like the weather won't be cooperating for picnics.

@shaggin I have been reassured by three people that they intend to drive over. And then the lady who will care for Moxe HAS to show or I will personally kick her behind. Wish I was joking.

@TheHorse Really? I admit being able to see the hardwood floors better is nice.

@sallypup Maybe I'll put my dishes in before I head to Guitar Center. You have inspired me.

Well, my house looks like a hurricane went through it. I suck when it comes to stuff like this.

It's always good if you can knuckle and do something that needs doing but that you've been putting off for a while.

Cleaning is an endless chore. I'm kind of glad I can't do it anymore. Have a good weekend.
