  • I would say about 95% clean. i do floors everyday becasue I have 3 very large indoor/outdoor dogs and two kids that still eat off the floor.

  • My house is cluttered and kinda messy. Dh is a slob. When he is done something he sets it down right there and that's where it stays until I nag at him to clean it up or I clean it up. DD is 4mos old and I'm working 30 hours a week so it's been crazy trying to keep up wiht everyhing. I'd say the worst thing is the laundry. I HATE laundry and it usually just ends up on the bed room floor lol

  • eh... floors suck. dishes suck. dogs and dirty shoes suck. neverending laundry sucks. running out of any cleaning stuff sucks. toys in the still full bathtub from last night sucks. pee on the toilet sucks. cigarette butts and ashes in the house or on the floor sucks. sigh. little boys, men, and babies don't care about clean...

    oh yeah, that tv up top of the stairs that you can't carry down and out to the dumpster cuz you're too preg and it pulls your belly when you try to pick it up so you're waiting for your husband to take it out one of these days when he's home from work... sucks.

  • actually, my house is only clean in the afternoons when i'm done cleaning it.

  • Always cluttered, usually fairly clean under the clutter. It's as clean as I want it to be about 50% of the time, and the rest of the time I can live with it. Sometimes I feel like I have a choice between Life and Cleaning, and I choose life! (Oops that sounded like a pro-life kind of joke, I did not mean it that way, I would never joke about that topic). There are almost always toys on the living room floor, whether or not I just cleaned within the last 30 minutes - I try not to leave the house with toys all over, but sometimes I do. There is ALWAYS a pile of clean laundry on the guest bed waiting to be folded, which kind of drives me nuts, but I try not to let it get to me, I mean hey, it's clean, right? Basically if the floor gets filthy or the dishes stack up, I am bothered, but other than that then if I have spent at least part of my day cleaning up then I figure there are more important things to stress about, right? :o)

  • If you were to come here right now, its picked up but in obvious need of vacuuming!
    If you were to come here anytime my 3 year old is home, you can definately tell there is a toddler around. Toys are everywhere and Disney channel is on my TV.
    I try to keep it picked up most of the time, just in case of unexpected visitors!
