  • Absolutely. I work full time and go to school full time, sometimes.. the house just gets messy! :) At the end of each night I throw my daughters toys in bins I have placed in various areas of the house, I sweep after she eats, I vacuum when I get to it, I make sure to put dishes in the dishwasher as I go so I don't end up with huge, gross, food-dried-on stacks- and the laundry gets done when I get to it. That's life right?

  • Oh, yes. I'm working two jobs, so even worse. DH is home and does some things but organization is beyond him. I've abandoned hope till he's working again and not making messes as fast as they can be cleaned.

  • Yep. I've resigned myself to not having a perfect house. If people don't like my clutter they don't have to come over.

  • I can honestly say no. Since DH and I are working M - F, the house isn't getting messy. My DD plays with her toys each evening, and picks them up before bed. Dinner dishes get into the dishwasher every night too. Every Friday is laundry night, and every Saturday is mop and dust. Now when it comes to organizing misc papers, or photos, or even getting to some household projects, that we CAN fall behind on.

  • Yep, but we use the weekends to try to take care of that - and we 99% of the time - at least one of us does it and the other entertains our son. its very much a team effort and not easy but we don't stress too bad if it fails.. jsut keep on trying
