 Even without OCD, I feel the same way.

I gave up trying to clean all the time.  I did clean continually when I was a SAHM, but when I got a part time job after the children were in school, the cleaning went downhill. Now I just try to keep the place from having dust and cobwebs and relatively sanitary.

Have your children and DH if appropriate help.  Your kids can put their dirty clothes in the hamper and put their toys away.  New rule.  If you touch it you put it away

As a single mom with three kids under the age of seven, my kids have chores, there is no way I can keep up with them! And I do certain things during the weekday, like dishes, and casual picking up, then weekends the kids dont play until they have helped with their chores.
