household shortcomings

  • I'm not always good about making use of leftovers.
  • Sometimes I throw away the tiny shard of soap in the shower.
  • I don't always thoroughly clean the bottles and jars destined for the recycle bin.
  • I've been known to vacuum around the furniture.
  • About twice a week I forget to turn on the dishwasher.
  • I have been known to have sudden amnesia.

Sounds like a person on the top of her game, to me.
I have that same amnesia. Wish it would've struck years ago. Omniscience is a heavy mantel to wear.

Oh, an ode to leftovers should be written. Right now I have many leftovers, many plans, but I know wherein they're destined (both leftovers and plans) . . .

However, I DO clean out jars and cans destined for recycling.

If you move furniture to vacuum, well, you must be recommended for household sainthood.

Those are shortcomings? Leftovers means you cooked. You clean your shower. You recycle. You vacuum. You wash dishes.
You are a domestic goddess. Remember that.

Vacuum? I know it's here somewhere.

Leftovers? From going out to dinner last night.

Dishwasher? You're looking at her. Twice a week? Ummm...

Yes, I am a slovenly singleton. Gee, do I really want to broadcast that over the Internet??

Too late for that...

You mean some people MOVE the furniture when they vacuum?

(The cleaner the house, the angrier the woman, they say).

There is not enough space to write my household shortcomings here.

And imagine marrying into a family of Howard-Hughes-Meets-Martha-Stewart...

A favorite little lnternet saying I read describes me perfectly:
My only domestic quality is I live in a house.

you're meant to move the furniture when you vacuum? God, people's expectations just get higher and higher. i might as well give up.

I ALWAYS throw away the soap shard. Or i am the one picking it out of the drain anyway.

But if we all develop amnesia, none of this will matter : )
