Company will be here in a few hours. Why am I online instead of cleaning the house???



It didn't help that I spent this morning (Well, not the scratching part. At least, I don't think I did.)

Somebody send me vibes of cleaning energy and super speed! LOL

3. Look at the tasks individually, not as a whole

Looking at the whole job is what is overwhelming. Do the things you least dislike first. And . . . just vacuuming can make all the difference.

Plus, and I know it is weird, extra sleep can tire you out.

12. Yeah, I did a list for each room and have been crossing things off all week. But I still

played around and left too much for the last day. Oh well, it's looking and smelling pretty decent now.

And I know about too much sleep being bad, but it never feels bad when you're doing it.

Send some this way. I keep thinking about it--then I open the laptop again. Gotta get going shortly otherwise the stress will set in.

15. This is why I don't clean kid areas until the end. I waited until both

of mine had showered and brushed before tackling their bathroom.

Hope you got things straightened out before company came, and that you got good help from the little ones. I miss those days, when cleaning was still a fun game to them. Teenagers just whine their way through everything.

20. Yep, made it in time.

But, now thr little ones helped trash the house again and tomorrow at 7am I have a 2 hour round trip to pick up my mom for her turn (my inlaws were owner today).

My 6yo is practicing for teenagerhood now... Wish there was that much effort on piano.

Calgon, help a brother out and take me away!

will find some no matter how well you clean.

Relax and enjoy the holidays.

19. Cleaning is such a waste of time.

The dust and stuff always just come back and then you have to start all over.

Better to just except it and spend your life doing better things.

You're stepping on Lego bricks and cereal. It's just not comfortable to walk the house with steel toe slippers.

24. Generally, I do that, but every 3 or 4 months I feel like I need to clean up. Usually

when I start walking into the cobwebs.
