Why is when I clean a room it's messed back up in less than an hour???

It never fails I clean the house and it's messed up again before I get to enjoy it....(sigh). Just wondering.

  • I totally understand. I do dishes and think they are all done and by the time we go through the house BAM there is another load gathered. Oh gosh don't get me started on the mysterious laundry. You work all day thinking all the clothes are done and POOF there is another 2 loads waiting to be done...out of no where. I think its gremlins.

  • lol ahhh, the joys of motherhood. don't worry I feel the same way, && if it's not the kids, it's my SO. I feel like that's all I do anymore.

  • yup... i understand that! I really hate how I get all the dishes done and washed but 10 minutes later there are 4 more!! or I just finished the laundry and there are 3 loads suddenly! Or when it comes to vaccuming... it's like i can never get my house clean to where i want it... sadly, i gave up and clean a room a week! lol sounds pretty bad but it's just me and my daughter. We kinda move room to room on a weekly basis.

  • cause you have kids. ain't it great? at least that's a good excuse for having a mess. not like it's cat poop and pizza boxes up to your knees.

  • I feel like if I started on one side of my house, I could make my way to the OTHER side, then just turn around and start again. I swear, the garage stays the cleanest.
