You know what really gets my goat? I spend anywhere from 2 to 4 hours a day cleaning my house. Vacuuming, wiping stuff down, dishes, sweeping, putting toys back where they belong, trying to distract the kids WHILE i clean, arguing with Princess that mommy needs music on while she cleans and not cartoons like she wants, etc.
And when I'm done, i relax on my couch and smile, liking how my house looks. I savor it for about 5 minutes. Because when those 5 minutes are over, the house is wrecked again!
Between a husband, 2 kids, and a hyper as crap dog, the clean doesn't last long.
So the next morning, i repeat paragraph one. and the next morning, and the next, and the next, etc etc etc.
I'm on a freaking hamster wheel, people!
