The face of the enemy
This morning I decided that instead of waiting until mid-afternoon to tackle these tasks (and get all weirded out because I let it wait so long), I'd try something new: get it done really early while I was still a) partially asleep and b) getting my morning caffeine load on. It seemed to work. I had two bathrooms scrubbed from top to bottom, everything dusted, but alas...I fear I have stalled out part way through my least favorite task of all...vacuuming.
Luckily, we have one of those built in systems, so all I have to do is drag a long hose around the house, but I still just hate it. I've watched those programs on Oprah about people who have OCDs and can't vacuum their homes enough. Boy, I wish there could be some middle ground here. Maybe I shouldn't have fired the housekeeper whose only talent seemed to be vacuuming...
