Be honest



I feel like I can never keep up with keeping my apartment clean. We clean it one day and the very next day it is a mess again. Today I came home and I feel like it looks like a total disaster and I have no excuse, I have no kids! You may think, "Every time I come over to your house it's clean." Well, that's because I clean it spotless before any one comes over. I try to stay on top of it, but by the time I get home from work, I am exhausted and don't want to lift a finger. Lazy, I know. So be honest. Are your houses clean all the time? Do you ever feel like you can't keep up with cleaning and laundry? I feel like we clean a lot around here but it doesn't stay that way for very long! Ughhh, well I better stop blogging and start cleaning.

I am the exact same way! I try to keep up, but don't seem to succeed. You are not alone!

I've given up! Okay, just kidding, but I want to. When the girls go down for a nap I try to pick up and some days I ask myself... what for? the minute they wake up all the clutter will be back! And let's not even mention dishes! I bet you're doing a wonderful job making your house nice. Make sure you get those brakes that are SO need and don't stress about staying on top of everything at once : )

Oh believe me you are not alone! Plus you work everyday. I am at home with Zander almost everyday and I never seem to catch up especially with dishes and laundry! If you were to go in my room right now you may not find your way out of the mountains of laundry! Clean yes but not put away!

I know how you feel! I've never been to your place, but for me I think it is because our apartment is so small. I mean, with 900 sq. ft. if two things are sitting out in the kitchen it looks cluttered- you know? I'm sure it's not as bad as you feel like it is though :)

Um, I'm always one step away from a disaster. I try, but with 3 kids it's imposible.

yeah, our trailer is NEVER clean. It seems you have to clean the same thing over and over every day!! don't worry, we live the same way.... missed you at the reunion by the way...hopefully next year it will be at a better time for everyone!

well i will be honest with you now before the baby comes and it's no longer just the 2 of us, but YES! Mark and I are very similar. I clean the whole house spotless, say when i know someone is coming, they leave, mark and i love it clean so we try for a few days to pick up after ourselves, put the dirty dishes directly in the washer instead of the sink, but eventually one of us is in a hurry or really tired and we miss it once. if one is in the sink, they all go in the sink there after and it's that way with everything. when the baby comes it will just be one more to clean up after. the cycle never ends.
