Celebrate: Cleaning & Freebie

Well, the time has come.  I can no longer pretend that the legion of dust bunnies under furniture are just here for an early Easter celebration.  I must admit the weird suction noise in my kitchen isn't an invisible piece of velcro ripping open again and again. It's my shoes sticking to the floor.  And I can't blame all the hair in the bathroom on our cats ... because ... we don't have cats. 

All those months of saying to myself, "Professional writers don't have to clean. We have more important things to do!" have come back to bite me on the bu -- butternut squash (which may or may not have rolled under the refrigerator). 

So writing must go on the back burner for a little while, and I have to descend from Author Olympus with scrub brush and mop in hand.

No, this week I'm not celebrating cleaning.  But I am celebrating how nice it will look when I'm done. (And the fact that it should buy me 2-3 months of not cleaning!)

Have chores gotten ignored because of writing in your house?  Tell me what your problem areas are so I don't feel so bad...
