I used to have an addiction. Ok, so I never really gave it up. But I have definitely gotten better.
I used to be addicted to celebrity gossip. I don't even know why. And I still read the articles and look at the pictures. Why do we have a fascination for celebrities anyway?
Today I read online about two celebrity couple splits. Both made me feel a little sad. I like to see marriages work. Both couples are claiming "trial separation", but we know that can't end well. Well, I guess it could, it just so rarely does. Anyway, the two couples are Christina Aguilera and Jordan Bratman and the other couple is Courtney Cox and David Arquette. I always liked the Cox/Arquette couple. I thought they were an odd pair who made it work and I thought they were cute together.
So sad. :(
In better news, my parents are visiting this week. They arrive tonight. I have warned them ahead of time that they are arriving to chaos. We have finished the bathroom and bedroom, but we still have stuff all over the place. I also haven't dusted or vacuumed (besides the bedroom and bathroom) in a few weeks. It's very dusty. And dirty. And messy. And my fridge smells.
It's a little embarrassing. I was raised in a spotless home. No smells. No mess. And there was rarely any dust. The messiest room in the house? Easily my bedroom. Whenever I was supposed to clean my room, I would always read a book instead. :)
Even as a grown up, the messiest room in my house is my bedroom. Always has been, probably always will be. I keep having this vision of a clean, perfect house. What I need to remember though, is that no one lives in that perfect house. :)
Besides that, I live with someone who can be kind of slobby. (he's gotten a *tiny* bit better) My home will never be clean. Probably because when I get home today, instead of cleaning, I am going to want to finish the last few chapters of the book I am reading. I'm almost to the end!
I'll tell you about it in tomorrow's post. If I get to finish it. If I have company, I really shouldn't be reading.
