Cleanliness is next to Godliness

And you don't want to piss off God!

That is actually a quote from a dorky show I watch on Mondays, and by "on Mondays" I mean at some point later in the week after my classes are over, so Thursday/Friday/Saturday. Needless to say I haven't seen this week's episode yet, so there aren't any spoiler alerts here...

I actually want to sing the praises of clean. I love clean, clean makes me happy, clean makes me calm, clean lets me sleep better at night.

My wonderful amazing thoughtful husband vacuumed our dining area the other day because the roof had fallen in again (long story and I don't want to talk about it) and I didn't ask him to do it! I came home on Monday and as I gathered my things for sewing I noticed that the ceiling bits were missing from the carpet - I looked up to see if the ceiling was fixed (it was not) and since it wasn't I figured out that my wonderful amazing thoughtful husband had vacuumed! It made my day, and I slept better.

I don't know when this happened, and Mom, I'm sorry it didn't happen sooner, but I love it. I feel like I'm always picking up the apartment, and for some people it would get annoying but the end result is SO worth the 10-15 minutes it takes.

I have class tonight, and I won't get home until around 10pm but when I do get home I'll feel great because our home is clean...or at least it was when I left this morning, and that is enough to calm my soul for now.


  1. My mom FOR REAL cannot understand my adult obsession with cleaning since as a child and teenager my room was always a mess. I guess it's different when you pay for it all!

  2. I just read on your Twitter that your company is just upgrading to IE7. Wow! Way to keep up with technology. Can you use Firefox? It is more secure.

    What do you want for Thanksgiving Dinner and I'll bet you make a beautiful Dorothy. Frank should be the gate keeper at the Wizard's palace. Weeelll, why didn't you say so?

    Love you, dear daughter.

  3. p.s. Tell Jess her mom can call me.
