Trying to help with my most recent personal crisis, Joel asks me: when you’re sitting around not doing anything else, to what does your mind wander?

Cleaning, I say. Or cooking.

So you’re a Martha Stewart, he says.

No. I’m a hotel maid. Martha Stewart designs and decorates, creates delectable dishes using garden-grown herbs, gives tips on everything from recipes to crafts to etiquette. When I say I think about cleaning, I mean taking the available surfaces and making them sparkle – wiping, vacuuming, scrubbing. These sorts of things. I fancy myself a bit of a cook, but there’s no real creativity there anymore. We’re soon leaving our first real home together, and in the three years we were here we painted one wall in the kitchen. The rest was stark and completely without style of any kind. But I should be well-suited for the coming week, getting the house in its cleanest condition yet and ready to show.

Anyone have a lead on a family to buy a home in San Antonio? Let me know.
