The 15 minute rule.

There are times when, in my imagination, this is how I deal with a junky house! Sigh… Okay let’s set my humor aside and get down ta bidniz! We’ve never met anyone who didn’t want a tidy home. However we’ve met droves of people, our selves included, who find this to be a difficult task…
