“Something has changed within me…Something is not the same.”*
I have never been a neat person. But something strange is happening lately….and I seem to be slowly escaping the swirling vortex of entropy. I’m not sure exactly what changed. But in the past couple of weeks, it has taken me less than half an hour to get the house company-ready. No, it’s not perfectly immaculate. But it is certainly straightened enough that it’s okay for people to see it.
Some of it is probably just due to the fact that there’s less stuff in the house than there used to be (and continues to be less all of the time). Some of it is probably that I feel like my nice, shiny new furniture needs a nice, shiny home to be in. Some of it might be that, once cleaned up, it’s easier to maintain. I don’t know, but I have to admit that I kind of like it.
