I can't believe I am about to post photos of my messy house on the internet! Yes, that is my kitchen table cluttered with customs forms and paper bags. And below is my dusty globe with laundry to be done in the background. When you find dried up cat barf in the corner of your kitchen and you start to realize that your thrown about clothes have become cat beds, it is time to do some housework. I am not the tidiest person. Things get cluttered and piled up in my house. We have pretty much outgrown our tiny rental house, but we make it work. We generally keep up on the dishes, laundry and things like but sometimes I wish I was more attentive to other chores.
After letting it go for a while I will usually catch up and maintain it for a while but I hate being where I am right now. I hate that I let things go and am faced with a load of cleaning to do. My husband tells me that our house is fine and cleaner than most houses. I have to give the mister credit for cleaning the litter box every day and always helping. We have 3 cats and do not have an odor issue. Thank goodness for that! Our house could definitely be much worse. But right now, I wish and dream for a little helper that could come and clean for me. Like Ray, the college student, that cleans Seinfeld's apartment like a celebration or ritual. I need someone like that! I am sure that a lot of this comes from being sick and stuck in the house. I am longing for a healthy and fresh start! I wish my desk was clear and ready to use. That my bathroom and kitchen was spotless and all my clothes were put away. I have been cursed with a need for organization but lack the motivation and devotion to consistently do housework. I feel like it would be wasteful to hire a maid service. I feel ashamed and guilty about it. But the truth is, it would be a huge help and might be the answer I am looking for and to give me a jump start. I would feel less overwhelmed at least!
Are you a clean freak or struggle with housework like me?
