I have a confession to make. For the first time in 4 and a half years, I have stopped wiping down shopping cart handles before touching them, or having my kids touch them. Recently, I've found myself just tossing kids into shopping carts with nary a wipe in sight. I won't lie and tell you it doesn't bother me to a certain degree, because in the back of my head, it does. I think, "I should probably wipe that down." And then, I think "Fuck it." And I don't.
I almost lauded my new healthy mental attitude. Hey! Look at me being all normal and shit. But then I realized I think it isn't a factor of overcoming a problem. I think laziness has just taken over. I just don't feel like digging around in my purse for an antibacterial wipe. It just seems too hard.
Just thought y'all should be the first to know.
Thanks for the feedback on the sectionals with chaises.....I am having someone from a local furniture store come help me with ideas tomorrow, and I'm so excited I can hardly contain myself. I have a list of questions for her. Actually, I have an accordion file full of ideas, too. I just haven't been quite able to get things arranged right in this house and I can't wait for a professional opinion. She'll probably want to hang heavy, tasselled, velvet, cheetah-print fabric from everything and recommend the $10,000 sofas and I'll end up disappointed. But for now, my hopes are up. Can she arrange the crazy step-down, corners popped-in living room to maximize seating? I'll let you know.
I will finish my NYC saga. Eventually. I swear. Blogging takes time that I just don't seem to have anymore....at least not in the big chunks necessary. I miss it, though, so I'm trying to just jump back in!
