That I am a creative person is something I don't want to change, and is probably not a defect of my character.
I'm honest...another character trait that's mostly lauded.
But I'm a terrible housekeeper, a poor maintenance type. So I'm accepting it, and still working to at least make myself be more able to live in a clean house. Well, with allergies that knock me down with coughing, it's a survival trait that I now depend upon. That there may be mold behind these freshly painted (built in 1981) walls, just indicates to me that I've got to work extra hard to keep my side of the new paint cleaner.
I now don't leave the tub to dry after a shower...it's got to be dry within an hour of a fan or the window being open. Nothing is allowed to drip drip drip either.
But back to my current dilemma.
There's construction going on, and I leave windows open when I can. So dust has been settling on everything for this first month of living here.
Oh no, this means it's everywhere!
So I can't possibly pick up each piece of pottery and dust it and the shelf which held it. Can I?
Nope, my solution is to pack some of the pots back up...label where I pack them (of course) and not have them collecting dust.
I need to dust regularly too.
Any other solution?
I wish I had a grandchild around who could do this. Wouldn't that be nice? But they all live hundreds of miles away.
Shucks. I'll have to wear a face mask to do this. But it's time to put my big girl panties on and go to work.
