have a mr. clean new year

Every holiday season my house is plagued by messiness. This year, I promised myself that would not be the case. No, I promised myself that this year, my home would be nice and squeaky clean – but no, I have gone and let myself down yet again.

You see, my house was super clean before the holidays. When I purchased the first round of gifts and wrapped them back just after the Thanksgiving holiday, it was spotless. Even the Tuesday before Christmas (the 23rd), my house was more or less gleaming… pristine.

It was only the rush of Christmas Eve that induced the disease of clutter that seemed only to be magnified once I returned on Monday the 29th. Last minute gift-wrapping and packing and snacking just seems to go much faster when you’re not cleaning up after yourself!

I hadn’t remembered leaving the “house” in that much disarray, but it welcomed me on Monday (the 29th) with open arms as if to say, “Welcome back, Julie, to your traditional holiday hell-hole. Boy, are we glad you’re back!” And of course, being, well, me, I didn’t immediately attack it. I dropped my bags and my small box of gifts and fell into bed, where I proceeded to take a long nap.

And now it’s New Year’s Eve and this place is gonna get the crap knocked out of it, literally. I’m going to clean this motherfucking house so hard it’s gonna sparkle. Just watch me… really, I’m gonna go clean it… in a minute… after I finish this next level on the game “XIII”… I promise.

Happy New Year everyone! May this next one bring you all much happiness! Oh, and the forced retirement of G. Dub! Yay!
