About Today: Spring Cleaning for Lazy People 3/23/11

From Jen Hubley, your About Today Editor
My goal for this winter - the only one, really - was to learn how to pick up after myself like a normal grown-up person. To see socks that have escaped the hamper, to remove dust before it forms into snow-drift-like formations on the TV, to throw away the mail before it develops thoughts and feelings and kills us in our sleep.
