I need time to sleep, time to exercise, time to read a good book, time to fold laundry....but mostly time to keep up with cleaning up after a pre-teen, a teen, a husband who works nights and sleeps days, and a teacher who is trying to wrap up a school year!
So this is embarrassing...but you won't judge me will you? I hate clutter in our home. Having a messy house isn't quite so bad...but pictures of my messy house,,,well, that's just nuts.
Did I say I hate clutter? I can't get things done when I see cleaning that needs doing....ugh! Drives me crazy. I used to clean my dorm room before I could study for a college test. Right now I keep looking across the living room at the laundry basket that has half of its contents folded. It's so hard not to stop typing and go deal with it.
As if it isn't hard enough to keep up after myself and my hectic schedule...try keeping up after three others! I came home to find this mess in my living room recently. This is the result of emptying out a backpack and binder...she assured me she would pick it up...eventually! Notice she is nowhere in the picture!
As a mom, I use special techniques to find my children. I know exactly where my kids are at any moment. I just follow the trail of socks! Can't wait for summer, then it will just be flip flops!
Then there's the leftover mess after I make dinner. We are working on a monetary bribe system with the girls. Money makes the world go around you know...and the dishes clean too!
Then there is the mystery of dishes on the kitchen counter....Just to know...the dishwasher is EMPTY! Yes, empty!! I love finding the pile of dishes on the counter...darn, maybe the door was stuck. Or aliens took off with the sponges. Or my children developed a sudden allergic reaction to dish soap!
Who knows what the reasoning....I just know if summer would finally arrive...all will be better!
