This note was placed outside my door this week by a "friendly" mystery neighbor. Apparently they don't like that I put my trash outside my doors sometimes for a few hours before Charles comes home to take it out. I guess I should load all three kids up and walk it to the dumpsters across the complex several times a day. NOT.
I wish I would have taken a picture of what I wrote back. I wrote over it...
"Sorry, my bad" -Mom & three kids
My friend Lindsey Carson [who is an incredibly hilarious writer] is having a contest on her blog about "keeping it real" and showing pictures of our "hot mess houses".
I use to be a clean freak, but...then I had kids and now I'm satisfied keeping my house [at least] picked up. If I only have time for two chores a day I always focus on laundry & dishes. I feel accomplished knowing I did a load of laundry and there are no dishes in the sink when my head hits the pillow.
I saw all this to say, I typically only deep clean every three weeks when my midwife visits for my prenatals, but in between pregnancies [ha ha] I typically deep clean only if someone is coming over.
Thus, I like to invite people over often...to motivate me. Today, my mom drove 8 hours from GA with my brothers to come visit us in OH. So, I let my house go this week, until today when I cleaned it sparkly.
|dishes for one day|
|part of playroom|
|i'm not use to vacuuming [hardwoods at home], and i don't really see the point of vacuuming under the table when the next meal will look just like this again|
|yes, i do leave the play-doh until the next vacuum|
|bad picture, but you get the point, stains on floor|
|sometimes you break glass & spill pepper,|
but just walk around on it because you're nursing & making dinner
|i know this yellow ring is gross, but i have 3 guys using it...so it's reality|
|because i was deep cleaning, the laundry got washed, but not folded|
|so i "hid it" in my room|
|told you i clean up well|
|can you smell the cleaning products?|
