Do you ever feel like this?

Like your house is just never good enough no matter how much you clean it? I absolutely hate the idea of ppl coming over to my house b/c everyone i know has a very very nice home compared to mine. I hate it! If i could afford it, i'd get rid of this place and get a different one but its not in the finances for us. :(

  • i think I used to feel that way - he have an "average" home - nothing spectacular compared people we know.. i guess I am envious sometimes but maybe you could do cutesy things to help make it look cuter.?

  • I feel the same sometimes. I have two little tornadoes that like to destroy everything in their paths. They go by the names of Madison and Dakota. LOL. It's difficult to keep everything clean behind them.

  • Never have felt this way, even when I didn't have my dream home and lived in a much smaller one, my home even though humble was a place of love and it was reflected in it.

  • I feel the way you do. Because of our newest addition and the economy, we have had to downsize. We are living in a too small apartment, but this is what we can afford right now. It seems, even when things are picked up and put away, that iour place is still a mess. I am like you and I don't invite people over either.

  • Especially having kids and animals! As soon as I sweep/mop in come muddy shoes or the dog who has been outside all day wants to pee on the floor!! We have NO carpet--only in bedrooms!! Laminate wood is much easier to clean/scrub!!

  • Totally feel the same way. I never have the time to do what I'd really like to with the house, and DH is a packrat, so he has stuff everywhere. It makes me CRAZY!
