    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.

    Lynn’s Notes:
    Like most people, I hate to do housework, but once I set my mind to it, I’m a dynamo. I want everyone to go out of the house so I can pull furniture away from the walls, dump things out of cupboards, and leave my cleaning stuff where I need it. I start with the bathrooms — which I like the least, and I finish in the kitchen where chocolate and other hidden reward items can be reached. As a young mom I figured I had about an hour in which to enjoy a clean and tidy abode — before the kids came in and turned it upside down again. It was always worth the effort.
