you google "messy room"
---So my friend came over yesterday and helped me clean up the condo. I guess I have been kind of sloppy of late, unmotivated in a way. In a couple hours we had not only cleaned, vacuumed, mopped, scrubbed and polished everything in it, but had also completely changed the look of my living room. I should have taken pictures. I can't explain it but there is nothing (well almost) as exhilarating as having your home in perfect order. Basically it was to prepare for my mother's upcoming visit. She would tear me apart (verbally) if she saw what it looked like just yesterday morning. She always uses the " you weren't raised to live like that" line (it really wasn't that bad, she's on the dramatic side), and then I have to remind her that she never really taught me the proper way to clean because we had cleaning ladies when I was growing up (she was a businesswoman with little time). As a matter of fact I was told to be out of the house on Mondays and Thursdays when they were there so I couldn't even learn from them!
