Now if only I could contribute better to the upkeep of this darned house's interior. There are times when I think it'd be better to pay someone to come and clean, but then I say eff it and clean and clean it myself, but it always seems to be a bit of a wash.
Not that kind of wash (that is, the best kind). It's ridiculously hard to keep this place looking shiny when age and previous neglect of the place cause the need for more repairs and remodels and paint jobs than I plan on sinking into a home I don't own and the repair of which I don't benefit from long-term. But don't get me started on the to-own-again-or-not-to-own-again debate. Hello, headache.
In the meantime...wine!
