Life's lessons: On cleaning

Oh, I am so long overdue to link up with Rach for Life's lessons. Please, forgive me, sweet friend.

  1. I'm not good at lists.
  2. I don't know if you've noticed? But even these lists? End up being stories.
  3. And the other kind of list? The kind that tell me what to buy at the grocery store or do around the house? Oh gosh, they're even worse.
  4. But somehow I always get what I need at the grocery store.
  5. You know, because I really like food.
  6. I think perhaps there is just a petulant little child in me who looks at to do lists and says, "But I don't wanna."
  7. Because, you know, I really don't.
  8. But. But. But. I do feel better when the house is clean.
  9. So, I think what I need is for someone to every day say to me, hey go clean your house. Go fold your laundry. Go make some mac and cheese.
  10. Speaking of which, it might be time for a snack.
  11. Because I really do like food.


  1. But I like your list-stories! That's the beauty of the Life's Lessons list--it's whatever you want it to be! I'm a terrible list maker, but I realize it's essential for me now b/c otherwise I wouldn't remember a darn thing.

  2. Popped in to say hi! I love making lists--I'd rather make lists than do the things on the! :)

  3. New follower! Just wanted to say hi! Feel you on the lists, I don't like making them because it reminds me of all the crap I have to do! Though it is a great feeling to know I've been marking stuff off my list!
