The Cleaning Catalyst

18 May

Today I had planned to clean this house like the dirty girl it is… but I have failed miserably. I have cleaned the bathroom top to bottom which was no easy feat, and then took the easy route and tidied the living room.

I got on Skype to procrastinate by talking to my friend Adam.

I asked him to give me his best “Dead Beat Husband” message and yell at me to Clean the kitchen. He did pretty good considering he’s 20 years old and the farthest thing from dead beat or a husband.

Adam:  GOD DAMNIT GET URRR AS IN THE KITCHEN AND GET ME A BEER. AND WHILE YOUR IN THERE CLEAN THE GOD DAMN KITCHEN BEFORE I DONT LET YOU LEAVE THE HOUSE FOR A WEEK!

He tried, but failed. We chatted about my blog a bit and he said he saw the post about “period blood” and was going to skip it… There was a lull in the conversation. I assumed he started playing a video game or trolling around like he does. He messaged me a 5 minutes later with a quote from The “Period” Card. He was laughing.

Then he linked me this http://heyyeyaaeyaaaeyaeyaa.com/ and I instantly loved him more than I did 2 minutes prior. He encouraged me to turn it up really loud and show that kitchen who’s boss!
I’m getting my rubber combat gloves right after this post!

It’s on dishes!  It’s on counter tops! It’s on you dirty sticky nasty floor! ITS FREAKING ON!

 

Thanks Adam. It’s friends like you that bring a healthy balance of procrastination conversation and positive motivation to be productive…eventually, into my every day life. ❤

    Cleaning is incredibly boring, but having some goodass music on while cleaning makes a world of difference. Adam’s a smart boy.

    I like how you procrastinated even more by writing a blog post before you actually got in the kitchen. Did you ever make it there?

      Oh heck yes I did! It’s sparkling.

    Glad you made it in there. I finally gave up on the weekly half ass attempts and hired my lover to clean the place from top to bottom yesterday. Money well spent.
