Apparently I have become someone who vacuums every day.
I also clean the litterboxes daily. (I have to; otherwise the whole house smells like a big cat turd.)
I am no longer able to ignore messes around the house.
Given $600, I would probably spend the money on a vacuum and not a Nikon D60.
I think that's kind of a female thing, actually. Spending the money on something household related for a shared good rather than a toy for myself. I'm kind of bummed out by realizing this, actually. I'm also completely disconcerted to realize I have become something my ex-husband reserved a special sneer for: I am house proud.
And I can't tell if that's bad because it's embracing traditional female value assigned by a patriarchal culture or if it's okay to groove on a clean house, the way it's okay to wear lipstick and heels and feel like you look awesome.
