I often forget how much can be accomplished in an hour.

I'm not going to lie. I'm a horrible housekeeper. My kitchen is generally clean (especially after my last roomies, ewww). I cannot abide having a dirty kitchen. But the rest of the apartment - it's very touch and go. It doesn't help that I have a very fluffy cat who sheds over everything. My big issue is that I have too much crap, no place to put it, I don't know how to organize it, and have a hard time getting rid of it. It's really quite overwhelming. Now I will say that I *am* getting better at getting rid of stuff but yeah...I still need work.

I am sitting at my desk and I can see all the way to the back door in my bedroom (also know as my fire escape). That is nothing short of amazing as this is something that hasn't happened since I moved in here. Aren't you impressed? I know that I am. AND the top of my dresser is actually more or less cleared off. My dishes are all done. ALL the floors are swept. The bathroom is half cleaned (I'll do the rest tomorrow). Since I finally remembered to buy Windex my bathroom and bedroom mirrors are clean (three floor to ceiling mirrors are a pain in the butt to clean btw).

The place is looking *much* better. But I seriously need one of those organizer people to come in and teach me how to organize my stuff. And get rid of it. Maybe Denise should come and clean sweep my apartment for me??? This has all been inspired by the fact that I really don't want to have to deal with coming home to a dirty apartment on Sunday.

And in terms of stupid questions - why does my cat insist on always sleeping on the one spot on my bed where it's easiest to sit down and do stuff? Oh wait, because she's my cat. sigh. It's a really good thing that I'm not crazy about kids and having them is not on my list of priorities. If this is how my cat turned out I don't want to think about what I'd do to kids...

Now if only I could get as much done in an hour at work as I could cleaning. sigh.
