  • I call a friend that i know loooves to talk & talk to her the whole time I work. It makes the work go by faster & its more entertaining then just listening to the radio.

  • I just wait for the mood to strike me. If someone else doesn't like the mess, they are welcome to clean it themselves.

  • Ugh, I need the motivation too! Lol, except I'm 9 months pregnant so I don't feel like doing crap! We have our apartment inspections tomorrow, and I have been trying to get myself up to clean for 2 days. Still haven't got there yet. Lol, hopefully she doesn't care if my laundry's folded or what-not!!
