I Can't Go Out Tonight Because I Have to Clean

I volunteered to house a campaign staffer at my apartment until Super Tuesday. Yesterday the coordinator for staff housing called me to tell me that most likely a staffer would be coming on Wednesday.

"Oh good," I said. "That means I have time to clean my apartment."
She laughed. "Trust me, they're going to be at the campaign from 8:00 am to 11:00pm. You don't need to clean."
"But ... I know ... but ... I just can't have someone staying with me with a dirty kitchen!!!! Even if they don't step foot into the kitchen."

So there you have it. I may have absolved everyone else from housecleaning, but myself? Not so much.

I wouldn't worry so much about the kitchen but at least clean up the junk mail off of the futon so they have somewhere to sleep.

It's because you're old. You wouldn't care if you were 20. ;P

I hear you and am the same way. And unfortunately, the property manager will be here for our annual inspection in 2 days. The house is a mess, but at least the front yard finally got cleaned up. 'Course now I'm exhausted from that. Ugh.
