And consumed with guilt.
Okay, maybe consumed is a little strong. But I definitely feel guilty. And not just because Dr. & Mr. Taggart are coming down for a long weekend*.
It’s because they’re staying with me, and I’ve been a bit untidy as of late, and so someone else is cleaning my place for me, which is something I’ve never done before. Because come ON, I can totally clean my own place. I know how to clean, I’ve done it before, and not only would I save money if I did it myself, but who am I to ask/pay someone else to clean up my messes?
Yes, I was raised in a very anti-cleaning-service household. I recognize that there is actually nothing wrong with it, but still, the guilt, it abides. And maybe if Dr. Taggart had a service come in every so often, I wouldn’t have major allergy issues every time I stayed with them.
But still. I dunno. Has anyone else dealt with this? If so, did you get over it?
*Dr. Taggart should really patent that Proximity Activated Needle of Guilt (PANG). All I have to do is realize she’s within 50 miles, and I’m overcome with Generalized Guilt Disorder.
