too perfect

When I was married ...I did all the right things...perfectly clean house...perfect meals...perfectly clean and well mannered children..Then got yelled at for being too clean...now I have found myself ...not so perfectly clean...everything looks in place...but just open up the closets...and the dust and cobwebs...I have gone completely the opposite...and it's driving me crazy.
I need some kind of motivation to get back to a healthy medium.

  • think about how good it feels after the house is so clean. nothing else to do. also when u have the house clean, u really dont have to clean every single day. its easier to keep up

  • The problem is...I don't feel the urge to be clean anymore...my closets are horrible...my cabinets need a major overhaul...and my basement is so full of mold it'd making us all sick...no money for a refix.

  • If anyone has the answer, I'd love to hear it too! I don't ever remember a time in my life when I have felt so darn lazy and unmotivated. If we are having people over I wait until the last minute to do everything and then get so stressed out that I am a bear to deal with! I love how the house feels when it is clean but to keep it that way requires effort. Anyone have the secret answer?

  • I was looking through the net for something close to it and I came across the site F L Y .net Its an acronym for finally loving yourself. I know I'm a procrasinator n wait til the last min to clean too so maybe weve got something in common!!!
