Dust bunnies scare me.

Ok I am thoroughly mortified. Have you ever noticed that your house looks fine until someone comes over unannounced?? Suddenly you notice the windows have fingerprints on them, there is a thin layer of dust covering every surface, the cats have been using your leather couch for a scratching post, and there are *things* underneath the tables. My dad and sis just came over for a visit, and to my horror my house was a complete disaster. I have just been using the living room and hallway as a passageway to the safety and comfort of my bedroom. I LIVE in my bedroom. As soon as I come home from work, (ok I might cook supper and wash dishes first), but then I quickly retreat to my sanctuary where I can surf the net, do mail-ins, knit, make my shopping list, watch tv, take a nice bubble bath....I have everything in here,why would I need to be anywhere else in my house, anyway? I admit I am not a 'housekeeper'. I work all week and the last thing I want to do when I get home is clean. Besides, no one ever comes over, or at least that's what I thought. And no one who lives here was complaining, although the cats have mentioned that the litter box needs regular attention (note to Lauren). I have been lazy lately, and I need to get up off my wide load buttocks and grab a mop and some Mr. Clean. I know once I clean there will be no visitors at all for a month, (which is in itself reason enough to tidy up the place) but it has to be done. And I am sure I will feel so useful and satisfied once the house is smelling lemony fresh and shiny. Dust bunnies, prepare for your imminent demise.
