    Former Cinderella

    I wasn't always neat. However, I clearly remember the day it all started. I was 10 and started cleaning the kitchen at home and when I was done, it felt incredible. My grandma was very proud of me and from then on, I became a neat freak for the next few years. Every day, after I...

    Uggg, Cleaning

    I so badly hate to clean, but cannot stand to be in a messy house.  I struggle every morning to get everything done right away so I can move on to all the other things I would rather  be doing!  I find I feel better about my day when it is clean to start with, but...

    Didn't do much today.  Vacuumed the living room rug.  Did some more dishes.  That's about it.  Am thinking how I can make my home appear less cluttered so that I can get rid of my CHAOS (Can't have anyone over syndrome).

    Especially Dusting

    All those hard-to-reach corners, having to move everything around and sweeping up afterwards, and having to do it all again a week later!

    I Hate It So Much! :'(

    I grew up in a dirty house, so I made it a point to keep my room clean- my things picked up, trash in the can, floor swept and vacuumed (even on the weekends when I'd come home from school). But now that I'm married and have my husband's things combined with mine in a two-room...

    I'm a Very Busy Person,...

    I'm a very busy person, always have something to do. May be work, kids, sport or helping others. I don't always have the time to do it and expect other to, and when I get home I expect my place to be clean. And if it's not bare I blow.

    I would probably like to clean

    if it would stay clean for more then 10 min. it doesn't however. with a dozen kids running around, they mess it up faster than I can clean it and I make them clean too.

    I work during the week

    and my daughter I don't get enough time with. I try to wake up early but end up geeking whilst having breakfast rather than clearing & dusting the house. Of course procrastinating on the interweb won't help!

    Not a fan of cleaning MY house but I’d gladly clean yours. I go to my best friends and I’ll start folding cloths or washing dishes or whatever. And only because we are as close as we are, I’ve been known to tackle the bathroom too. My house, I do clean but her...

    My Whole Weekend
