Does the cleaning ever end in your home?

just curious because it doesn't end here.

then again, my home is 1700+ sq ft with not just one, but two stories and 3 children (4 counting my sloppy husband).. ugh the one drawback to having a nice, spacious home. i feel like the house will never be completely clean, one area will always need attention.

  • happyYes, It does end....(or atleast mine did) when your kids are grown and your husband does what you ask of him to help make your job easier. I have days where I'm tapping my fingers and trying to think of something I can do to be productive. I'm loving this, LOL.

  • I have days where I'm busier than other days, but for the most part it's not too bad. I have 1k split into 2 stories, so it's more of a pain than anything to have to clean the upstairs. I keep everything tidy and organized and do a set plan during the week of what deep clean jobs get done. I started using www.motivatedmoms.com and it's been a big help in staying on top of things.

  • I have just given in and decided I could either spend all my time cleaning or spend time with my family. When my son is grown, he won't remember the cobwebs on the ceiling, the dusty shelves or dishes that were a little bit behind. He'll remember having a momma who paid attention and spent time with him.
