My House Is Stupid Clean Now

The place has not looked this good for 106 days. That’s how long it’s been since my foot surgery, when I panic-cleaned for a week. I know. Even I am shocked by this.

All those times I said I didn’t have the time to deep-clean the place…well, that’s no longer an excuse in the isolation era. But in doing so, it’s scary when you realize there are corners and crevices of yourContinue reading “Big-Ass Dust Bunnies And Other Discoveries”
