Well... A change indeed.

Iggy spent most of his Sunday singing with his choir and I spent most of my Sunday cleaning. With the new apartment being just a few weeks away I really can't motivate myself to keep the old place neat and clean. My mind is already somewhere else... Anyway, I did my best and - as I sometimes say - left my bloody hands on the floor. But we're getting a cleaning lady once we move and thus - according to Viki vksi  - making an official step from "fag" to "gay". LOL So, Iggy came home, enjoyed his coffe and this tiny little conversation took place.


"Well, there's going to be a huge change for you once we move to the new place. Not that much for me though."
"Oh, what would that be?"
"It's going to be a novelty for you to come home and see a clean place once a week. I am already used to it."
"..."

Bitterly sad, but true and this one really, really made me laugh. Afterwards. LOL

Yes, Iggy's turn is every week, Paterson's once per apartment. What a fucking liberty! Kiss ... guess who!

Well, usually it's just me, because Igor has an in-grown ability to totally ignore messy things. LOL

I do too. It really made me laugh. And he had this really important face while declaring it. LOL

We divvy up the chores. I hate cleaning the bathroom,dusting and vacuuming. Mitch hates cleaning the kitchen and doing laundry.

Our place is not pristine, but it's clean.

We both hate it all, but I guess I am the one who gives in easier. LOL Igor could go on for ages without noticing it. :)

I am sorry to read about the "bitterly sad" part, my dear. Relationships are all about such moments, I think, and getting through them. At least you were able to laugh afterwards.

Jan. 23rd, 2010 02:19 am (UTC)
Well, it's not anything big after all. I don't like to clean, but when I set my hands and feet it's done quickly. :) And it was a really funny moment.

Do you want me to do your cleaning?

How much do you pay? :P
omero_hassan
Jan. 18th, 2010 06:33 pm (UTC)
I'm happy to pay a fair price, but you're on your own for your travel expenses. And there I think is where the system would break down... ;o)

I do too, I do too.

So a cleaning lady will materialise SOON! :)

I recently hired a cleaning woman for every two weeks. It's seriously the best decision I ever made.
paterson_si
Jan. 23rd, 2010 02:20 am (UTC)
And I am totally ready for that best decision myself. Might even make myself happy by hiring her once a week.

Oh, the joy! :)

LOL and I'm finally un-learning the obsession with cleaning that my mother and my grandmothers had managed to instill in me.

And I still think that Iggy and you are perfectly matched. :)
paterson_si
Jan. 23rd, 2010 02:20 am (UTC)
Well, it was never really deep in me....

And, yes, we are a perfect match! :)

I'm glad that you are still my perfect couple. LOL

I miss you, my darlings. xxx

Plan a visit sometimes in the 2nd half of the year, ok?
tilia_tomentosa
Jan. 23rd, 2010 11:36 pm (UTC)
Can YOU plan so far ahead?

I can't, especially in my current looking-for-a-job situation.

Can I come NOW, please? ;)
paterson_si
Jan. 23rd, 2010 11:58 pm (UTC)
hum.... now isn't the best of times. LOL

Well, I can keep it in mind and then plan it when dates are met. :)

I can't plan a vacation from a job I don't have yet. LOL

Once my silkworms hatch, I can't leave them until they die. If they hatch some time in April, I hope to be done with them by the end of June. If I don't raise a second generation again. :) I'm afraid they are yet another complication, but I want to give the colony at least one more season of active life (they spend most of the year inside the eggs).

Jan. 24th, 2010 12:10 am (UTC)
Well, just so that you know you are officially invited once we put all the stuff in and start properly living in a new place. :)
tilia_tomentosa

... and the cleaning lady starts cleaning. LOL

we had a cleaning day yesterday, so much better when we do it together, Jon helps keep me on task.
paterson_si
Jan. 23rd, 2010 02:21 am (UTC)
We also do it together. Sometimes. Iggy takes over the bathroom and stays there for two hours until all the rest is done. LOL

I know it has been a process but it seems really quick!
paterson_si
Jan. 24th, 2010 12:26 am (UTC)
It actually is quick, given the fact we first laid our eyes on the place in October.
