pig sty

The upstairs part of our house (where our office is and our library will be) is a total pig sty. This is mostly due to the fact that it has been a work in progress for a few years and will be for a few more years to come.

It finally got so bad that Brian commented on it. My response was that if it was bothering him so much, maybe he should quit complaining about it and go clean the room. Much to my surprise, he did just that on Saturday. And, that motivated me to mop the floors up there (which I did after work today).

While the office looks about 10 times better than it did before it was cleaned, it still looks like a pig sty. Hence, my lack of motivation to clean it in the first place.

I consider this whole situation to be a trade-off. His cat‘s litter box is also upstairs. I got sick of nagging him to clean it. So, after eight years of having a cat in the house, I’m now cleaning the litter box for the first time. Eating my own words, I guess.
