What up, funks and funkettes! How’s this fine Thursday/Friday/Wednesday/whatever-ding-dang-time-traveling-day-it-is-for-you treating you today? Me, I’m feeling a little rough thanks to not enough sleep and too many chores. We need a dishwasher, y’all, for real. I just cannot keep up, and it’s a sad day in the life of a Mia when she decides not to bake any cookies because there are already too many dishes to do.

I have slowly been trying to unfuck my habitat, but it’s so, so easy for it to get re-fucked again, especially when (cough, cough) I want to take a night off and just eat tacos and watch Dylan Moran do stand-up comedy and not clean up afterwards. So, y’know, it’s slow going.

But I try not to give myself too hard a time about it (that’s what UFYH is for!). I maybe wept a little inwardly when I visited my mom and saw how gorgeously spotless things are there–but hey! She and my stepdad are both retired, whereas Mike and I both work full-time in addition to having outside interests that don’t involve scrubbing the bathtub with lemon verbena cleanser or mopping the kitchen floor. Things aren’t health-hazardously filthy, it’s just a messy house.

Well, a messy house with too many belongings (and too much furniture) in it. That’s another step that I’m going to try to tackle this weekend: removing some of the junk and crap and other crud that accumulates and never gets used. Where do all these things come from? Our house is like an inside-out katamari, I swear.

Some days it feels like I’m never going to get anywhere, but then some days I have the energy to take care of stuff and hey, look at that, in a couple of days I did the tub and the sink and the toilet! It’ll probably never be 100% tidy, or the kind of house you’d see on Apartment Therapy or whatever, but that’s not what I want–I just want a little bit better, a little bit at a time.

  1. I’m messy too, though UfYH is helping like crazy! Yet there’s still a sink of dishes at home… but it’s a smaller amount of dishes than pre-UfYH. Progress is progress! Also, when your life is busy with better things to do than cleaning (or things you HAVE to do like work), it’s freaking hard to maintain if that’s not your nature. I should know :)

  2. Oh, and oops! Forgot to mention how much I dig this look. That skirt is fantasmic.

  3. This is a fantastic outfit! I love that skirt. I’ve kinda been craving another maxi skirt lately, but in black.

    Yeah, our house is a bit of a mess as well. It’s largely my job to keep it clean, but yeah … Gonna have to check out this link.

  4. Love love love this outfit! I just recently got my first maxi skirt and am looking forward to styling it this weekend.

    My gentleperson is out of town for three weeks and in the five days since he’s been gone our apartment has turned into a wreck. I am not good at being a grown-up. This weekend will require some unfucking, for sho.
