Uncomfortable truths, vol. 38

1. Many times I pull a Post-It Note off of my stack to write down a phone message or reminder note, only to realize a few seconds later that I don't need it, after all. I may spend as long as a minute trying to place it back on the stack in the EXACT SPOT from whence it came, aligning all of the edges and making sure it sticks completely. 

2. Every time I'm in a convenience store, I'm completely tense. I'm absolutely convinced that it's going to be robbed while I'm in there. Same goes for bank branches.

3. Everything is relative. If you ask me to stop and pick up Brussels sprouts on the way home: "Ooh. I would if I could. That's just WAY out of my way, though." But if you ask me to stop and pick up cupcakes from a bakery that's RIGHT NEXT DOOR TO THAT SAME GROCERY STORE: "Oh sure! No problem ... It's right on my way home."

4. The cleaning ladies put not one, but TWO, air fresheners in the boys' bathroom. I think the boys should be ashamed. Of course, they also put one in the den behind the media console. Not sure what to make of that.

5. I don't vacuum between our cleaning ladies' bi-weekly visits unless absolutely necessary. And I didn't vacuum before Amelia's birthday party, which begs the question, "What, exactly, do I consider 'absolutely necessary'?" I have no idea.

Amen to not vacuuming between cleaning days. Glad to know I'm not the only one!!!

I don't always vacuum between cleaning days, but I do move the vacuum to a different position in the closet so that it LOOKS like I used it during her off week.

my husband always laughed when I cleaned the house before the cleaning lady came. If I didn't she put things in drawers and I was lucky if I found it before she came to hide it again.

#1- YES!!! If I couldn't get it back it just went in the trash. What about dresser drawers? Mine have to be shut and nothing sticking out. Steve just leaves it, I can't walk out the room without fixing it. OCD at it's finest.

I need your help when I go back work, convincing steve a cleaning lady is a must. I envy thoughs that have one.
