Odd Couple

Does a messy home (or office) make you anxious and cranky, or is cleaning something you just do before company comes over?


To be perfectly honest I don’t care how messy the house is. People are so used to me I just let them in my room and maybe apologize for the mess, but most times I just don’t care.

The tech guy who came recently to  my room to work on the old computer got to see what a slob I am. My ex-husband and I had some problems with that. He hated the mess and I could care less. I knew if I waited long enough he would clean it himself and he did.

I was a bad housewife. I also worked full time and had kids. Not that that would change anything. We were the odd couple alright.
