move past the moment when all you want to do is smash something.
but really, most things are going well.
and when things are going well, the things that aren't so good really tend to stand out.
the thing about the dirty dishes in a clean house standing out more than the dirty dishes in a filthy mess of a flat.
and i've lived in both.
so i know.
i think my house is pretty clean these days. not too many dishes in the sink, and when there are, it's usually my mess and i clean it up when i get around to it.
i know which areas need more attention - the sink in my bedroom (yes, i have one) could be a bit more tidy. i could probably vacuum more often.
i'm aware of the areas that need work. and i also know enough to call a maid when the mess gets too big.
but sometimes someone else creates a mess and just leaves it there, and it's like they don't even know that a mess has been made and they just walk right past it, totally oblivious, and when you tell them to clean it up they're like "but that's not even a mess!"
and that's when i get really fucking angry.
