Yesterday I was body snatched by some strange house cleaning alien. It took complete control of me, ordering me to clean things that haven’t been cleaned for possibly years (windows) and generally tidy the whole place up.
It’s not complete yet, but this body snatcher seems to be relinquishing control of my body slightly, allowing me to return to some semblance of normalcy. So, while I get some other work done, it’s plotting away in the back of my mind, forming a list of tasks that will be complete in the next week or so.
I must say, that I’m enjoying sharing my space with this creature. I’ve never been much of a tidy person – sure, I keep things clean enough, but there are so many other things more exciting and enjoyable than cleaning.
But now… I look at my sparkly windows with a sense of glee. Man they look good. So pretty and clean and shiny. And my bench tops? They shine as well. My window ledges are free of junk and space is looking rather uncluttered.
Yet, there is still so much to do. My mind is consumed by cleaning.
No, no, I banish you beast! just for a little while, let me think non-cleaning thoughts… where is that cage I locked my inner editor in? Think there is room for two?
Anyway… I am going to try very hard to snatch some of my mind/body back from this cleaning freak and get some writing done. Or at the very least finish the editing that I meant to have done on Friday 😉
Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend!
