  • The kids begged to watch a movie this was the only way I got my dishes done. I had no desire to watch 101 dalmations...again.

  • Yes, very much so. I have to get in the right mindset to do them. Or a lot of good music does the trick! It gives me something to listen to while working.

  • I do it everyday!! With 5 kids running around my house it sometimes feels pointless to even try to clean house since they are going to make a mess again. Trying to keep your house clean while raising kids is like trying to brush your teeth while eating an oreo!!!!

  • oh ya! Pretty much all summer Ive just been trying to leave the messy house..go somwhere fun and enjoy summertime..we have to come home sometime thogh..and the mess is still Music is my motivator for sure! Now that I am caring for a little one, my house has to be a bit cleaner than usual, so Ive been doing fairly well lately. CafeMom and just the internet in general is a huge housework procrastination problem for me..You just have to be strong pp..pull away with all your strength! lol
