Because once you have looked under the couch cushions, where does it end?
Your children will just use it as an excuse to eat more salsa.
There is very little to be gained from knowing what is under the rugs in a house full of teenagers.
It will take you weeks to reset the bar on what constitutes "clean enough."
A clean house is a sign that somebody is not living the life somebody deserves. Anybody?
The longer you put it off, the later in the year you can celebrate Clean House
(Clean House Hour celebrations never end well.)
Trust me: You don't really want to know where that smell is coming from.
Caring is the first step on the road to Utter Resignation. Why not just get there already?
If you really believed it would do any good, you would have already done it.
