The Vacuum Cleaner (Or: My Mind Is A Scary Place)

This is me. I mean, I didn’t write this, I am reblogging it. Ann of GG wrote it. But… it’s me. Only I’m sure that my procrastination is much worse.

I used to be known as a neat freak. Then…. the internet happened.

The Vacuum Cleaner

(Or: My Mind Is A Scary Place)

I know I need to do something about the little rug on my kitchen floor.


I notice it for days. In fact, I’ve been noticing it since before the last time a friend was here (a few weeks ago?). I was quite embarrassed because some food was dropped by my guest and I said to discard it because the rug was not clean. In fact, it was a MESS!

      Oh, me too, about putting things off until the last minute. The older I get, the more I seem to need the extra burst of energy that comes from the adrenaline rush of sheer panic.

      Funny thing, the day after reblogging this, I actually vacuumed my kitchen! I had to — the glass insert on a thermal carafe exploded all over the place.
