I'm so overwhelmed right now. I'm trying to clean a kitchen that hasn't been cleaned in months. I found stuff with a best-by date that was fifteen months ago, and that wasn't even the worst of it. Did you know jam goes bad? Yeah, me either.

It's just so overwhelming and I don't know where to start. I feel all shaky and ready to cry, and it's only the beginning. And it's not like I can leave it, because nobody can live with it the way it is, and I want to get it done by the time Keith comes home (about 3pm).

I think the trick for me to get through this - or at least the initial stages of it - is just to clean everything I can see, and worry about what's behind closed doors later.

Here goes nothing....

Music...lots and lots of loud music is the key to housework you dont wanna do. Good luck with it!

Thanks! I didn't have any music, so I just popped in a Friends DVD and listened to all the episodes with commentary. It worked. Kinda.
