Messy House

Does not mean DISORGANIZED! Mom made reference today that I must be unorganized since my house it such a mess. Not the case. I'm organized where I need to be organized. Come home, fix dinner, do homework, do something creative, catch up on e-mails or blogs or whatever, put P to bed, gather clothing for the next day, have a glass of milk, and go to bed. Add a shower for the P-man every other night, and you got yourself a routine. I can't think of anything more organized than my life. One's house does not need to be cleaned unless someone you just met is coming over. Or your going to have a party. A clean house is overrated. Besides have you been to my mothers house lately? I rest my case!

Jodi......Now that my kids are old(er) 22 & 24. I so wish that I hadn't worried so much about the house being clean. Working/cooking/school activities take up so much time. No kid is ever going to remember whether the house was clean or not. They will remember what Mom did with them. Kuddo's to you for realizing this early on!

Well said, Jodi! I spent a week cleaning my house this summer for out-of-town guests and SWORE it was going to stay clean...NOT! Not that school's back in session, I have absolutely NO time! It's mostly kid crap, legos, soccer shoes, school papers, etc, but I have better things to do. Like sleep!
