Yesterday, I shared my love/hate of the wonders that occur when I invite someone into my home.
Somehow, these pictures didn’t fit with the flow of that post, but I feel they are important to share. (Important to share as a Slob Blogger. Totally weird to share as a Normal Person.)
See that stuff on my fireplace? It was JUST outside the photo of my living area that OBviously needed to be picked up before someone came over.
I mean, if someone walked in my living room, they couldn’t help but see THAT mess. It had to go. But this mess might not be as obvious. It’s over to the side, and we probably won’t hang out in the living room anyway, and doesn’t dusting spray and a dusting thingy make me look like LESS of a slob?
But I did it. I bent over and grabbed the randomness (which includes a black wig if you’re concerned about the pile o’ hair) and moved each item to its actual home nearby.
And even though I could justify devoting mental energy to thinking of all the reasons why it didn’t matter if I left it, the small amount of physical energy I spent to clear the fireplace made it look so much better.
Don’t ya think?
Note: That’s the black wig from some of my Clutter Guilt videos. Have you seen them?
