  • Are you kidding all of the time. When I feel like it I can get a ton done but when I am dragging it seems like it takes forever to do anything.

  • Doesn't everyone feel that way. When my kids were little we would run around and see how fast we could put away the toys. I always liked having the house neat. It wasn't always clean. I am a good cook so that made up for a lot. LOL

  • Yes! Sometimes I look around and think, "I just cleaned all this!! Why should I have to clean it all up again?" Now I enlist the help of the major mess-makers (they are 10, 8 and 3) to help with the clean-up.

  • probably a better question for me would be do you ever feel MOTIVATED to do housework? bc it's few and far between lol. and usually if i do it's something crazy like cleaning out the pantry and organizing it instead of something 'normal' like scrub the kitchen floor. i hate housework lol

  • Y'all are so weird... my house is spotless all the time and I live for cleaning.

    And by that I mean I agree with all of you. I absolutely hate keeping house and do run around at the last minute to make it look like I did a lot. Haha!

  • Hey, what's really to like about doing housework. You clean up and eventually it gets dirty again. I don't blame you for not feeling motivated at times. I've felt that way plenty of times.
