The worst thing about cleaning is that you actually have to clean. Today, my only inspiration for cleaning (other then the fact that the house was a total mess) was raw crazy anger at my inability and total lack of desire to consistently clean. So, I cleaned the living room and went through those nightmare bags of crap from the car. The house is now warm and cozy looking in the main area, especially with the twinkle of Halloween pumpkin lights in the window. Helpful Hint: When the house smells stale heat up a little homemade potpourri on the stove. Fill a small sauce pan half full of water. Add a cup of orange juice. Sprinkle in cinnamon and allspice. Heat up and turn off, don't let it burn. Let the smell waft through your stinky house, it's do it yourself aroma therapy.
