i know that i am lame.
I know that I haven't posted in a while.
I know that I said I would and I haven't done it yet.
I have an excuse.
My family is a bunch of pigs!
Yep-we should call our house a barn, cause then they would all fit in better.
I am so not exagerating here. Pretty sure i am the only one who cleans around here.
When it takes me over an hour to clean the kitchen, and that does not include scrubbing the florr-which still needs to be done-the people that live here are pigs.
I am an exception.
I figure the one who does ALL the laundry-gets a free pass.
I love my family, I really do.
But, why do they have to be such HOGS?
Am I only one with this problem?
So-instead of doing all the fun crafty stuff I wanted to get done yesterday, I cleaned, not that you can tell know, but I did do it.
They used to be better-pretty sure they can get that way again.
Now, if only I can find a way to HELp them change without yelling.
Any ideas?
So-I am off to switch the laundry-fold two loads and clean the kitchen. (not as dirty this time)
Hopefully cause the girls are at school ALL day for the first time today-
I can get the craftiness done.
Maybe-you will all be lucky enough to see two posts in one day.
That is my goal.
It might require a diet coke from Mcdonalds-but I have decided thats ok.
it could be worse right?
What, you thought I quit.
I did. I just started again.
Not as much as before, just one every few days, instead of a few every one day.
Ok-enough of me babbling.
Have a good day all!

I have absolutely NO ideas... I just know I'm in the same boat.

This weekend, rather than doing something fun while the girls are at their dad's, I'm going to be shampooing carpets from spilled v-8 juice and such....

I'm looking.....but I'm not seeing your fabulous project. I'll keep looking and you can shout out if I'm getting hot or cold. ;~)

Oh, I so know how you feel. It's so hard to keep the house clean in the summer! You are not alone, girl! :)
As for ideas, I do have one. Although I wouldn't say it's easier in the beginning, it helps in the long run...I have a hard time doing it, because it takes more time at first. But whenever I have them take the responsibility for their messes, they seem to "get it" way more than when I clean them up for them! But I am so not a perfect mom, and I often find myself doing these things for them! :) However, I am going to keep working on letting them have this wonderful opportunity to be more responsible! (Ha!)

Thank you so much for visiting my blog, and for you sweet comment! :)
I love your honesty in your blog~ so so refreshing! :)

I completely relate to you! Not sure how the house gets to dirty but somehow I can't convince the husband that we should have a cleaning service...too bad! Maybe one of these days! Thanks for visiting me today, too!

You are too funny... I can so relate to this....I can even picture the scene. I live with a hubby who doesn't even see messes, really it doesn't phase him in the least and 5 boys, ages {15, 15, 13, 9, and 5} they don't seem bothered by messes either, but MAN do they MAKE them.... sheeeeeeeeez

Girl, you are preachin' to the choir!!! Hope you were able to get your craft on today!

Oh man I SOOOO know what you mean. My 7 yo DD can actually go to sleep with paper trash, shoes, clothes (clean AND dirty mixed) on her bed with her and IT DOES NOT PHASE HER!
