  • When I worked, NO, because everyone else was gone too. Now that I'm a SAHM, I can go to the store and come back to a messy kitchen. Heck, I can even go to bed with a clean kitchen and wake up to a messy one. I SWEAR there are little elves that are up all night making messes.

  • happens to me a lot! but i just started back to work and even when i was home, i hardly got things done because i have 2 small kids and the dishes were my last priority. so now my dh is home with the kids while his job is on its off season, and i know he has the same priority list as me. :)

  • I usually do, but it sometimes doesn't get done till the next morning honestly...

  • I'm a SAHM, but my husband goes to work and he comes home to a clean house most of the time;) When I did work my house was always spotless when I came home because my son was at daycare and he was tearing around somebody elses place.

  • I am a stay at home mother living with my fiance, his parents, little sister, older brother, 3 dongs and a cat. because we have twins on the way. It's not that we don't make enough money, we just decided to stay here for a year or two so we could save up a ton for our own house. (plus who doesnt need help with twins?) they are all messy people and i'm a neat freak so I clean up after everyone.... yep all of them!

  • Ugh, I made dinner before I left, ran around for six hours straight, then came home to clean up dinner. Mad now.

  • When my family is gone.

  • Not usually. Between picking up before bed and little bit before work, then coming home for lunch every day and usually throwing a load in the washer or something, it's not too bad.

  • Occasionally, my cats make a mess while we're gone for the day, but, normally, no, it's not messy. I clean up the night before or in the morning before I leave.
