Okay. I'm confused. How come the fact that I can't keep my kitchen clean means I shouldn't own a house, but I should adopt a child?

Does this make any sense at all?


Not really anything new to add, as I agree with pretty much everything everybody's said.

Except that I am a lousy housekeeper, and my kitchen is a perpetual minor disaster, yet I have a house. More house than I need, really, but I fell in love with it. And it doesn't show any signs of falling down because I don't keep a spotless kitchen.

Myself, I'd think a messy kitchen would count more against you re: adopting a kid than re: buying a house. I can see the Social Worker doing the review frowning and muttering about germs.... except that it sounds like your kitchen is clean-but-cluttered, which isn't the same thing at all.

That's the thing. 30 minutes work will take care of the mountain of plastic bags and clear off the counters. Another 15 will wash the surfaces. And maybe 10 to get the stuff out of the fridge. It's that I'm too lazy to do that.

The rest of it is clutter. And that clutter is 90% books. We have at least 1.5 Bryants. And God alone knows how many comic books.
