Anyone else?

Anyone else hate cleaning? I'm not very good at it. Don't get me wrong, my house is always clean, just not always dusted and mopped and stuff... Anyone else like this and your husband is a total jerk about it?

  • I'm not very good at being a SAHM either. I can clean just fine at other peoples houses. But when it comes to mine, I get overwhemled. My DH used to be a butt-head about it. Until he was the stay at home person and he undestood from then on.

  • I hate cleaning my house. I have a 2 year old and a 10 month old and then i have to 10 week old puppies. No matter how hard I try I can't keep my house clean. When my husband started a new job where he was gone all week I promised him that I would keep the house clean while he was gone. I did really good for about the first 3 weeks then it kinda faded. I still keep up on my dishes but since my girls are in their room the majority of the day playing with their toys I dont worry too much about keeping the floors swept and vacuumed. I worry about it Thursday because my husband comes home on Fridays. LOL! Hey, he never knows that I dont clean all week like I said I would.

  • My house is clean but I don't dust or mop. lol my hubby doesn't complain about it at all, but occasionally he'll mop. Not mopping like crazy but just a lil bit since it's not that dirty.

  • I hate cleaning but no one complains about it. Then again I live alone! LOL I just don't seem to mess it up like it was when the kids were living at home. Imagine that.

  • I've got 5 kids, a 102 pound German Shepherd that stays in the house, a cat and a husband who is a truck driver who's not home much. I clean while the kids are at school and by the time they get home 45 later my house is destroyed. I have white linoleum in my kitchen and what used to be vanilla colored carpet throughout my house that now looks brown. My husband still has yet to put up the christmas decorations that are still on our front lawn to this day. I would if I could get the stakes he hammered into the ground out. So we look like the neighborhood rednecks in the burbs. I have all but given up and my hubby complained ONE time about it until he got a taste of what I go through when he was out of work for a month when my Brother was in a coma and he was taking care of the kids while I was at the hospital. After about a week and a half , my hubby told me he doesn't know how I do it all ! He's never complained again !!!!!

  • I love to organize and clean but my husband calls me a surface cleaner. If you walked in my house you would be like "wow", but if you look under things like the couch you might beg to differ. He's a much better cleaner than I am but he only does it like once a year (which is ok b/c he works ALL THE TIME) I would hate for him to come home and have to clean. The last time he cleaned (we were having a fight): I woke up at 3am to get a drink and he had completly disassembled the light fixture and was cleaning every crevice. I told him I was going to make him mad more often if he was gonna do all that.
