Ele and I were talking about the mid-week mess and the weekend cleaning binges required in life... and the "clean home" we present when we have company. In fact, I often LOVE when I have plans for someone to come over because it has me clean everything ALL AT ONCE instead of how it is now - like yesterday at 7:30am I cleaned the toilet (how random is that for a Monday morning). So here's my mid-week mess (note that everywhere I go I leave a trail - where oh where did I inherit *that*???!). Don't get me wrong, I've actually made measured & intentional incremental improvements from days gone by... but sheesh what does it take to just pick up after myself anyway?!
