I have a new catchphrase, motto, slogan....whatever you want to call it.
If you don't pick it up, no one else will.
This is the truth. My husband won't pick it up. My kids won't pick it up. The dog...worthless. The cat, well, let's not even go there! And since my magical cleaning fairy is no where to be found, I guess it's all up to me. So I am attempting to embrace this reality since I've FINALLY realized it. So I keep repeating it to myself, and it is helping. So hopefully the amount of times that I walk past something lying on the floor wondering how long it will be there will diminish.
