life : ugly lives here, too
The Bad : Flowers don't last.
The Good : I can get more.
Hi Everyone -
Over the weekend I got to thinking that sometimes our blog gets a little bit too antiseptic. I'm sure being a Libra and quite the fuss pot has something to do with it. But, that's not reality is it? So in the spirit of keeping it real, here are some pics of the ugliness that resides around our place.
The Bad : Someone else would have done a better job of capturing a photo of the tiniest pink sneakers in the dryer.
The Good : I don't earn a living taking photos of spinning dryers, yet.
The Bad : We've had scaffolding and construction supplies outside since November.
The Good : Our building is getting a solar roof!
The Bad : Our dining room table is often covered with papers. It's the first room you enter in our apartment.
The Good : It's the first room you leave in our apartment.
The Bad : This lace curtain is really dirty and hides dirty windows.
The Good : When I remember, I'll wash it. Also, the dirt is on the curtain, not on the floor, and it hides the dirty windows.
The Bad : We don't have enough closet space in our kitchen for all our groceries.
The Good : We'll eventually drink these and they'll be gone.
The Bad : Our cupboards are so crowded sometimes things fall out onto my head.
The Good : Our cupboards are full and I have a hard head.
The Bad : Someone's dresser isn't always neat.
The Good : He'll straighten it up on his own or if I ask him.
The Bad : We don't always put our clothes in the closet.
The Good : They're always hung up or folded.
The Bad : I have every issue of Martha Stewart Living magazine and some others with no room to put anymore. That's a signed copy of Martha's Homekeeping Handbook on the floor and I'm sure she would not think it's 'a good thing'.
The Good : None - I need help. What should I do with all of these magazines?
Bottom line, with all of the turmoil around the globe these days, we are very lucky to have a pretty nice home in a stable neighborhood. Sure, we could stay home and deal with all of this inconsequential stuff like we used to. But, who wants to? We don't live in a magazine. We'd rather go out and do something. How about you? Excessive cleaning or fun?
