Actually, it's not blarg. But I love that word, so I thought I would keep it in the title. I've just been too busy to blog and write creatively, which is good in a way because it means I am employed, but bad because there is a poem lurking somewhere under my mind's bed, along with a myriad of dust bunnies.
Now there's a term for you. Who coined the phrase "dust bunnies"?
People really need to get more credit for blurting out expressions that stick. I searched for the origin of "dust bunnies" and didn't come up with anything more informational than a warning about feeding them. But maybe I just didn't look long enough. Maybe the answer really is waiting for me in a YouTube video.
I am glad I did the search, though, because I stumbled across a new mantra that is sure to make me a happier person if I remember to recite it daily:
Cleaning your house while your kids are still growing is like shoveling the walk before it stops snowing. ~Phyllis Diller, Phyllis Diller's Housekeeping Hints, 1966
