Do you feel like this sometimes?

Why does it feel like you've done so much today but nothing really got done.

Just the main stuff like the breakfast the cleaning after the pick ups and so on but yet the house still looks the same like no one lifted a finger...I hate that.

  • I third that! I guess maybe it is just a state of mind for the most part because you know that when the kids wake up or get home from school it's going to be a disaster! Probably when your hubby gets home too! For me, I feel that way when there is a HUGE mes and I'm only able to make a dent in it!

  • yeppers....i love random visits cuz the house is always in shambles and it will look like we are slobs but really i just havent done my dayly cleaning. its a endless job and sometimes it doesnt seem worth doing. i had a friend that had 4 kids and somehow kept her house clean. i wish i knew her secret.
