When I got home from Mom's, I realized my apartment was a mess. The only clean room was the one we rearranged last week, and all the stuff that didn't go back into the DC is still out of place elsewhere..
So, for the next few days I'll be cleaning. We'll leave late this week for Red State and from Red State we'll go to desert state for two weeks - then I go to mountain state for a debate tournament for a few days before coming home.
I get home on MLK day, have one day off before the new semester starts --- and then we leave for a debate tournament in Red State....
SO, literally, if my place is going to be clean between now and the end of January -- it has to be now.
When I get home, the only messes I want to clean up are cat messes....
I also have to pack for this odyssey -- although, the packing part doesn't really start until we leave for desert state, as I have plenty of things at hubby's in Red State so I don't have to get into my suitcase.
I'm also going to cheat and buy a sweatshirt in desert state so I can wear it in mountain state.
as Mom would say -- uffda
