I dunno Phal, doesn't sound like anyone's having much fun at all!!

I will admit though... I've always loved watching men do housework. Especially shirtless.... er.... I mean... um... especially cooking. Yeah. I like it when men cook.

I sure missed a lot of sexy talk while I was gone!

Just got home - drinking a coffee then gonna pull some weeds from out front. Still have the laundry to tackle, and supper to make later.
I'm kinda glad I don't have a man in my life right now, because he'd probably be camped in front of the TV (oh wait I cancelled the cable) watching golf or fishing while I mopped the floor around him. He'd come to bed all refreshed while I was exhausted and full of resentment - zoinks - are you sure you wanna be like me, Nands???

-Moseys over to the cleaning thread-
Although this is not my house, nor anything about a house, you know what I should do..I should clean my car. That's probably a good idea. Crap.
Who knows, I might have to live in it some day :o

OMG, Ananda, I write a progress journal - goes like this: brushed teeth, took shower, paid two bills...you get it. I don't know what this is about. I am thinking depression (for me). Just don't get it. Thanks for the great thread! BTW, I am making progress on cleaning my house today. Did unload the dishwasher and am in the process of washing another load.

Well, I am on board. I am all for a motivational kick in the arse. I have to put my trash out. I should really clean more. There are so many things I should do. Today I did do a big thing - left a message and tried to outline boundaries with respect to what works for me and what I expect. Of course, it will no doubt fall on deaf ears, but I did do my part, which is HUGE!

I couldn't leave the claning until next weekend. I would never find my way to the laptop!

I have put a washing on and sat down again. I want to sort the bedroom! but wanting and doing are two very different things!

Still didn't vacuum...dumped some more dirty clothes on the (mostly picked up) floor and have a bunch of clean clothes on my table. I need to clean out my dresser so I have a place to put my clothes.

I hate cleaning and I don't like being organized.

I don't like trying to be organized Bam, but once Im there I love it. Having said that it's been a long time since I have been organized lol

Done lots of washing and put some clothes in the drawers.

Now I need to go get a shower!

Well, Ananda, hope you don't mind my sharing of nothing today. I have unloaded the dishwasher, received a phone call regarding a legal matter, apologized in another matter and that's about it. It's only 1:45. Maybe I can make more progress. Love this thread!
