Cleaning is one of the hardest things I have ever done.
Because I do not know what is considered clean.
As someone who understands the concept of microbiology the way a farmer knows their fields, I don't know what is considered good enough.
Don't get me wrong, I'm definitely not the cleanest person in the world.
I mean, in fact, I'm probably the messiest person in the world.
For when you understand that nothing is ever truly clean, why bother?
But really though, there is something to appreciate about a house that looks like someone lives there.
There is something to appreciate about a clean home, sure, but that's not reality.
Things can't always be clean, pristine, and glossy with a nice sheen.
Sometimes you have to live a little.
I'm not saying make a mess insomuch as rotting in your own filth.
I'm saying that perhaps the messes we see are just a consequence of life.
