    I absolutely hate cleaning my house - not because it's work (I can always use the exercise), but because there are so many other things I could be doing with my time that are so much more fun and/or creative. I spend 50 hours a week or more at a job that leaves me spiritually...

    It's Messy

    My house is definitely in  need of a good cleaning.  It's more cluttered than anything, but that makes it look dirty.  A little picking up would do some wonders.  I've just got to get off of my butt and do it.
