We aren’t exactly the neatest people in my house. You definitely cannot eat off the kitchen floor. I am adamant that we get the cat litter changed out on garbage day.
That has not been an issue since I took over the task. And it’s made easier by the fact our garbage crew tends to come late in the day.
Sure enough, here comes my partner to tell me excitedly that they are picking up the trash. Possibly. Or maybe recyclables.
As it turned out, the garbage collection crew came early. But you know what? At least the kitty doo doo is out of the house.
When my live-in procrastinator and I took turns taking out the litter and garbage on a weekly basis it often got postponed by a day or even two. Sometimes I would just give in and take care of the task.
So if I hear one word of complaint about stinky bags in the garage I’m going to bring that up. Is that petty of me?
Do you get criticized for something the accuser has done on a regular basis? Are you like me and guilty of such occasional finger pointing?
I say we all need to stop sweating the small stuff, anyway.
