    The difference between “good enough” and “perfect” is highly overrated.

    Nothing like a Grubberware party to compel a person to thoroughly clean the house. However, it is SOOOOO stressful right up till the moment people leave. Lol

    As an aside- why do so many otherwise rational, intelligent people these days choose to furnish their brand-new homes with WHITE carpets?

    Makes it easy to tell when it needs cleaning?

    Just yesterday I saw a comment to the effect of “cleaning your house while you have children is like brushing your teeth while you’re eating Oreos.”

    My mom always settled for “close enough” and expected me to keep my room that way too. It gave her time to bake goodies, and I was all over that.

    Love the “octopus arms” in the first panel. I really wish I had them sometimes.

    “She’s not yelling.”
    Her speech balloon isn’t yelling, but her mouth appears to be.

    “. . . we see Elly Patterson representing the multi-armed Hindu god Shiva the destroyer.”
    We have two Shivas in our household, a parakeet and a kid. (The budgie is actually named Shiva, but not the kid.) Thank goodness they don’t have six arms! Once I made the grave mistake of reading Shel Silverstein’s “Nasty School” to the human Shiva, and she responded by autographing the light-gray rug in the living room with a permanent marker. Mea culpa. http://www.nytimes.com/2011/08/21/books/review/nasty-school-and-other-poems-by-shel-silverstein.html
