It's such a dance and I don't like getting messed up so it is better done when it is just me and Barclay. Or just me. It goes like this:
Watch a mindless show until the commercial break. Pause it (we have DVR the best invention ever). Set the alarm on the stove for 10 minutes and pick a room. For 10 minutes straighten that room. It's actually fun! It's a race and I know it will be over in 10 minutes. It's pretty much amazing how clean a very dirty room can get after just 10 minutes of steady attention. Then I do something for myself. Like get dressed (yes, about half of these are done with my ratty robe flying open to reveal my nekedness) or brush my teeth. Then I go back and watch till another commercial break.
So that's about 18 minutes per room...I have nine rooms...that's about 3 hours. But I will have watched a few shows, cleaned almost my entire house, and usually I'm decently ready for the day...or bedtime...whichever comes first.
That's just my weird but normal way to get stuff done on days I don't want to do a thing. Today is one of those days. So I'm sitting here in my robe, staring at Facebook and trying to get Barclay to stop eating unpeeled bananas, and I thought if I wrote about it...I wouldn't have to do it.
I think I'll watch HORDERS...that usually lights a fire under me.
