I recently came across a ‘clean up your house’ website that had a foul word in its name, so I won’t link to it, but there was a really good little tidbit that spoke about dishes and laundry that basically said, “Final step – put it away. Everybody forgets that last part.”
I stink at the put it away part of anything. It’s what incapacitates me in any effort to be a clean person. Case in point: Every morning I shower, eat breakfast and make a cup of tea, but take the tea back up to the bathroom to drink while I finish getting ready. Then I leave the cup there. I don’t even see them gathered on the countertop until I set the next one beside all the others. “Hmmm. I should take those back downstairs.”
This morning was the only time I remember bringing them back to the kitchen. I think Lloyd does it.
