Here is another Animal House update. We are looking at whether a clean house can change behavior.

I’ve gotten the house to where it is easily manageable. But that’s when I’m here. What happens when I’m not?

I was away for 5 days – dog sitting. Yes, I get paid to play with dogs and be at the lake. Its work, and the wind chills were below zero, but still – nice gig…

So what would I come back to?

It was a pleasant surprise. It wasn’t too bad.

There were a few dishes in the sink, but there were more in the drying rack. Bob almost kept up with the dishes.

The bathroom was my other potential nightmare, and it really wasn’t too bad. the shower curtain was pulled closed. Imagine that!

The house wouldn’t have gotten too dusty in 5 days. There wasn’t a bunch of stuff laying around.

Not bad.

I would consider it a victory. Wouldn’t you?

I’ll be gone a lot next month. We’ll see how it goes…
