When my 24 year old daughter was living at home she helped me soooo much with my housecleaning! She married two years ago and I went into SHOCK over what I had to do on my own. Know what I do now? I work it into my budget to have her come once a month and help me CLEAN! She knows exactly what to do and she is cheap!

It's not my hobby and I am not good at it. I get so easily distracted. There are 3 things of household chores that I can do: cooking, washing clothes and doing groceries, the other things I simply forget...Now my daughter wants to earn some extra money too, so she can clean the windows. I simply never have the time to do that! Good luck, hope to see you soon, it means that you are ready (for a week?!). Enjoy your weekend anyhow!

I know I am a bit weird, I will admit it but I love to clean my house. Sick, huh?

Mine is all nice and tidy and the last load of laundry is in so it's time to play!

There is more than four letters, but housekeeping is a dirty word. I have someone to help me with the down and dirty stuff due to physical limitations, but I still hate my part. I do love doing the laundry though. Maybe there is hope for me.

Hi Margaret...I am so happy we moved to an apartment...makes the cleaning so much more managable! Hope all is well with you and that you are getting into the fall season. Hugs, Susan

Hello dear Margaret, is the housework done?? Here is everything spic and span and I enjoy the beautiful weather, a lovely late-summerday.
I hope you enjoy it to.
Nice sunday and lovely greetings from Holland.
Hugs Mea

Yes I do understand! I have been intermittently jumping up from the computer and cleaning. The puppies got a stomach thing and we woke up to poo everywhere!!! It has been relatively easy to get up but no fun! Hope you got yours done. Still need to dust!
Hugs, Lisa

It's never ending. I'm a total neat freak, my entire house is white and cream, I don't have a lot of clutter, we don't wear our shoes in the house and yet the dust returns week after week after week. Thank goodness for Swiffer Dusters! Love those things.

eeeewwwww....I don't like that word. It makes my ears hurt. Makes me weak. Just thinking about it gives me a hot flash.
But, someone has to do it so it may as well be me. I'll just put on some good music and dance with the mop. All of my above symptoms are slowly disappearing and the air is is now good! ;)
(now somebody wake me up) haha
everything vintage

I will pray for you ;)
