  • As much as I would love to keep cleaning...I don't I clean what I can and when I can and when company is coming i defenately really clean or just throw some stuff into the closet for later but my main areas would have to be the kitchen, the living room and the bathrooms the rest can stay the same for awhile I will get to it sooner or later.

  • I keep a clean house, it's so much easier now that I have a 10 & 13 year old in school all day. I also work at home setting my own hours.

  • I am a SAHM and am constantly cleaning! Can't stand dirty bathrooms! I also have hardwood floors and the dust is ridiculous at times! My house is also respectable but like pp said it probably wouldn't pass the white glove test either!

  • I'm neat. I'm no cleaning pro and my bathroom could use a good scrub down, but even when I do scub it down the little ones make it look like I've done nothing :)

  • I keep a pretty clean house, cleaning almost daily with 5 kids and a hubby. The living room, bath room and kitchen are almost always clean, our bedroom is the worst I'm shamed to admit but mostly just clothes.

  • I clean every day , I have to or else it would be horrific. I can't stand when it looks messy, BUT I limit cleaning and picking up to twice a day, because if not, then it would be pointless with two twin boys (3) running around and a newly 1 year old little girl into everything. She just tore up a papertowel, I let her though because it was fun for her and I can vacuum it up quickly. :)

    PS there's a difference between dirty and messy. Like my coutertops are always clean (pet peeve about them being dirty, lol) and I try to keep the floors clean (tile in house except bedrooms) I technically have 4 ppl to clean up after, because my husband seems to think that he should leave his crap laying around and not clean up after himself.

  • I pick up and when I have time I clean. With my dh gone right now from 3:30 am until 8:30 pm, shower & bed that leaves me with 3 small children, full time job & a farm to run. The kids and the animals are not going to understand that they have to wait for me to clean the family room and then I fix a meal. Their bellies come first. So for now my schedule is awake at 3:30 (dh wakes me up without meaning to) back to sleep, up at 6:20 to bottle feed an orphan calf, feed kids & dress, leave at 7:30 to go to baby sitter, work 8 1/2 hours, back to pickup kids, drop off works mail and home. Feed kids, feed animals, throw a load in the wash, bath time, bed for kids, dh home, feed him, dishes, shower and finally bed about 10:00. Anyone see any free time in there? Weekends I finally get a chance to do a little clean up time.
