If you do all five zones, plus all the freakish once-a-year stuff that obsessive people do all in one week, do you get to take the rest of the month off? OK, I know better. I still need to do the routines and stuff, and there is never an end to what can be decluttered, but I still feel like I deserve a vacation.
My parents, who are also my landlords and have a pathological phobia about dirt (a really, really bad combination) came to visit this weekend. So I spent all of last week cleaning, including baseboards, scrubbing under the sinks, cleaning the trash cans, that sort of nonsense. Not to mention cleaning the carpets, the blinds... Boy am I tired to cleaning. But, my father actually spent a weekend in my house and the only think that he complained about was the mouse poop, and that is a losing battle. Usually he threatens to evict us at least once because we are slo messy. And it was easier this time than last time (pre-FlYing) since so many of the basics were already done.
Now, does anyone have a hint for not losing ground from being in this exalted state of clean? If I had to do all of this, I'd at least like to keep it looking this way for a few days!
