Does a messy home (or office) make you anxious and cranky, or is cleaning something you just do before company comes over?
I don’t know why I never picked up the cleaning habit but I do not clean unless I have to. I think it has something to do with my depression and the fear messages the perps leave in my head about not living too well. I keep telling myself I will get into the habit of cleaning weekly but for whom? If more people came over and my apartment became a place to hang out at and sleep at I might be more inspired to clean it more.
I scoop the litter, wash the dishes when they run out and vacuum when the carpet disappears. I sometimes do “bathroom duty” by scouring the tub, etc. Bottom line is: if the perp o traitors are coming in here and peeping at my stuff why do I want to clean the apartment for them? It makes it easier for them to be in here knowing they won’t have to face a mess every time. If I had privacy maybe I’d make my home a place of cleanliness and order.
