I have never been a fan of cleaning. Just don’t like it. I know, who does? But it’s way down there on my list of “Things I want to do today.” Let me tell you, when Haley goes down for her nap, there are many things I want to do for the 1-2 “free” hours that I have: read my book, write on my blog, browse the internet, watch as many Law & Order: SVU episodes as USA will air, fiddle around with my sewing machine… the list goes on and on. Did you notice what was not on that list? You got it: clean.
However, now that I am a stay at home momma, I guess that it is expected that the house is clean. It’s one of the few drawbacks of getting to stay home every day with my little squirt. And it means a lot to the husband, and he works so hard. Arg. And it was one of my New Year’s Resolutions.
So I spent a couple hours cleaning the house, and you know what, by the next day I swear you couldn’t tell. So I have to clean the house every day! WHAT?!?! Between three adults, two dogs, and a sixteen month old, the cleaned house doesn’t stay that way for long. So, I vacuum mop, do laundry, wipe down counter tops, try-unsuccessfully- to get the finger prints off my stainless steal fridge (any suggestions, Windex not doin’ it), put Haley’s toys back where they belong, for the billionth time. For what, so that I can start all over again tomorrow, actually tonight after dinner?
Haley tries to help, but the vacuum is still a bit too heavy for her.
I do appreciate the offer though.
I just got done with round one of cleaning today. Have you seen this note on Pinterest? (I tried to look up the source, no luck)
I think it needs to be in my kitchen today. Actually, the whole house, all the time.
