  • I do it. I mean my house isn't a health hazard or anything but I could definitely be scrubbing the floor right now. I just don't care about that right now. I like my me time and I don't care what anybody has to say about it:) Enjoy doing nothing, i am!!

  • Oh crap why would you think it is not ok? I do nothing all the time.

  • If it's bad, then I am a very, very bad girl.

    There is no end to the housework. I could spend every waking moment cleaning and would never be done. So I choose to spend most of my time doing housework and caring for my family, and a little of my time for me. Mama's sanity is very important.

  • sometimes you have too..I prefer get it done first but that doesn't always happen and I know I should be cleaning but I need a break!

  • Are you seeking validation from us? You are what you want to do and don't feel guilty about it! From 7:30pm (the time my dd goes to bed) until 1am, I do absolutely do nothing. I don't care how the house looks.

  • there's nothing wrong with it IMO. you need time for your self, in order to keep your sanity some times lol. If you never did anything until the house work was done, you would literally never do anything else because it can be never ending. :)

  • Lol. I feel the same, then I think would it be bad if hubby took a little time out from work to go fishing? Im afraid it's not easy running a household but it's gotta be done.

  • no that means your human, everyone needs a break sometime and even though the house work isnt done at that particular moment who cares whats more important is your low stress level and you can take care of the housework at another time
