  • Because I like to live in a clean house, and I know if I don't do it that either it won't get done, which isn't acceptable, or my husband would try to do it, which would make me feel guilty and probably wouldn't be what I wanted done anyway.

  • I have no choice! If I don't do these things my house will fall apart! My motivation is...a large pot of coffee in the morning. lol. I usually do the cleaning first thing in the morning. What gets done gets done, what doesn't, gets done the next day.
