Imagine that! Me giving lessons on cleaning house!
For anyone wondering why there were so many bags of yarn in the extra closet that I had forgotten about, this blog post may help explain it completely. Someone calls and says they’re coming over! No further explanation needed. Everything goes into the nearest empty spot. Yarn in the closet. Books under the bed. Kitty litter in the pantry. At my house . . everything has a spot and that is anywhere it will fit and be out of sight when the need arises.
The other night we had friends coming over. I had bought a bag of those teeth cleaning bigger ball size dog food for Speck but it hurt his teeth for him to eat it. It had been sitting on top of the dog crate . . see that little cabinet that’s turned at an angle in the corner . . behind there is a perfect “out of site” spot. I thought I had stuck that bag of dog food behind there. While our friends were here, I thought . . they have dogs . . I can give this to them. She saw me go searching behind the cabinet and she cracked up at my hiding spot. Turns out I had stuck the bag inside the cabinet so I gave away my good housekeeping tip for nothing.
After ordering the new cabinet for this area, my friend wondered if there was going to be a secret hiding place behind the cabinet!
I used to think that some day I would be a good housekeeper but have come to the conclusion in my old age that there are only 24 hours in my day and I just don’t have time for cleaning and I’m never going to allow someone else to come in and do it so . . it is what it is. All I need are more hiding spaces!
