Hi everyone! I'm writing my first post out of curiosity.
I have such a difficult time mustering the energy to clean. I have found that the times I am most motivated are when I'm angry. It's a perfect means of channeling all of that pent up energy and my home is never cleaner than when I'm pissed off. Lol. So I'm curious. What gets you going?

My husband knows something is wrong when he finds a spotless house. But sometimes I feel like I have to pick a fight so I have something to be angry about to trigger my cleaning instinct.

I do clean sometimes when I'm angry- but most often my motivation comes from visitors.

I clean more thoroughly when I'm angry. Mostly becauseif dh and I have had an argument I'll be too angry to be sitting in the same room as him, so I just keepcleaning from room to room until the whole house is spotless.

I know the feeling well. When I'm made enough to clean I don't want to my husband so I pop in the headphones and listen to my iPod.

All of the above, but my attention to the small details is magnified with anger. Lol.
