I believe in mess.

I believe in disorder.

I believe in taking care of my family first and spills, accidents, or slop later.

I believe in cob-webs

I believe in bugs

I believe that it is ok to notice, while lying on the floor months later, that you didn’t quite

clean up all the evidence of the family stomach flu last winter.

I believe in not discussing cleansers with the stay at home moms at the bus stop.

I believe in letting your lawn die in order to conserve water.

I believe in chipped ceilings.

I believe in letting your yard overgrow because you were spending time playing with

your kids.

I believe in the five-second rule when food hits the ground (even in public spaces)

I believe in wrinkled clothes.

I believe in unwashed cars.

I believe in beta parents

I believe that my neighbors talk about me.

And I believe that I don’t care.
