I'd noticed a lot of fur on the living room rug. Especially under the coffee table.
I kept trying. It's time we got a Miele. They're supposed to be excellent for picking up fur.
Eventually I gave up. (I noticed that I am way behind with The New Yorker, which has been piling up on the coffee table since November. Obama won the election — wow!)
Cleaning is stupid if you think about it logically. The minute you're done, the dust and fur start piling up again. But if I never cleaned, our whole place would look like what's still under the coffee table.
