  • Normal: There is a room in your house that always stays cluttered and messy, and much like Lady MacBeth’s hands, will never be clean. 
  • Normal: Your laundry is everywhere.

  • Normal: Your kids’ bath toys are right where they left them after the bathwater drained. 
  • Normal: Some type or types of toys are scattered all over the house and no matter how hard you try, or what bribes you offer, or what god you pray to, you never get every piece picked up. 
  • Normal: Cups and cups and cups. Everywhere. All the time. Normal: Art Damage. 
  • Normal: You can’t see the floor of your car. 
  • Normal: You forgot trash day again.
