Today is a cold day yet I'm getting started on some early Spring cleaning. Starting tomorrow it looks as if we will have at least 5 days of warmer weather. I am thankful we had a decent winter, but I have to tell you I'm looking forward to it.
I always thought having this 2 story dream house of mine would be fabulous. While it is in many ways, when it comes to cleaning it can be a bit overwhelming.
I have 4 kids (yes that includes my husband) and they all seem to have amnesia when it comes to remembering how to pick up after themselves and what a hamper is really for. My two little monkeys like to run around and leave toys and their mess everywhere and it seems to always find my couch cover or clean floor. Not to mention please guys, aim aim aim... My teenage daughter seems to think her bedroom floor is a closet and I get that famous roll of the eyes with any mention of her doing chores. My husband still can't get the hint the garbage bag is waiting for him by the door for a reason and clearly that rinsing a dish and putting it into a dishwasher only takes 30 seconds.
Being a full time Mom is a huge job. Although I'm very lucky I get to stay home and be with my children it doesn't mean I enjoy every aspect of it. I hate dishes and laundry. It seems when I finally get ahead there is a new pile waiting for me.
I dream of the days when I can twinkle my nose like Bewitched and everything is done for me. But until then I have this huge job to do myself and I am going full throttle at it. Ready, set go....I'm on my way...Wish me luck. Things could get scary
