Confessions of a Not-So-Desperate Housewife pt.1

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!


  1. That would annoy the heck out of me too! I enjoy having a clean house, and I cleaned all day yesterday. I'm currently pregnant with my first child, and I'm wondering how I'm going to deal with the baby messing up my clean house. I get annoyed with my husband when he messes it up, and when I'm cleaning up after him, I'm cursing him out in my head and wishing I had my own house to live in all by myself... lol

  2. I like my house clean. Unfortunately, it rarely is. I don't even have kids, so I don't know what's going on. Gnomes, maybe. Or possibly the the small pony of a dog running through my house.
