Nudge: Clean Up
When I woke up on Saturday I walked into the living room to find my boyfriend sprawled out playing video games. Though this is not a very common occurrence in our home. There was a part of the scene that irked me with it familiarity.
Our coffee table looked like this:
Long story short: it was a mess. And often is.
It kills me every time. I will be gone from the house for hours and return to a fairly clean surrounding where the center-piece is a terribly filthy ikea coffee table covered in junk and cigarette ash. why me????
So I took action.
Before leaving the house I strategically placed a trash can near his couch-spot:
I then tidied the coffee table and draped it in the nicest piece of fabric I had on hand the could a approximate a decent tablecloth.
And then I left the house. With my darling still inside. Though in a slightly changed postion.
Later that day I returned to find the table in decent condition.
And was pleased but still skeptical.
Yet even hours later the results stuck.
