Dusting is a good example of the futility of trying to put things right. As soon as you dust, the fact of your next dusting has already been established.

Just to share a few thoughts that I am not alone. Michael is a perfectionist and I am sooooooooo far away from that. After my Daddy died my Mom moved in with us and she is a perfectionist too. Both together just about drives me insane. They care about useless things that takes time for what??? Who cares.
Don't get me wrong I have my house cleaned, not always dusted like it should be but the kitchen, living room and bathroom are clean.
Here is my problem. I bought my house April 15, 2005. I was so anal that nothing could be dirty, everything had to shine. I have all hardwood floors which had to be spotless and shining at all times. All I was concerned about was my clean house.
On June 8, 2005 my only child my son was killed in a car accident. All I could think of was the time I spent cleaning the house instead of spending time with him. Since then things like cleaning doesn't seem to be as important.
The thing is with Michael and Mom the house will always be presentable but it is not my main goal in life.
I have to admit that when everything is shining I love it and it feels so good. A clean house means there is still work to do tomorrow.
