Why can't YOU keep your house clean?

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

So I am watching Family Guy late one night and there was an argument on the show about keeping the house clean.  The arguement was "It's a FINITE area, it's not like I cleaned a town."

Made me laugh.  However my house isn't that clean.  I do tidy up, mop, vacuum, dust, do laundry, etc. I only have 2 kids 4 and 5.

What's your excuse?

I'm a lazy slob who has ADHD and an adorable 3 year old. I honestly don't give a crap if my house is messy, up to a certain point but until that point I have no motivation to clean it.

I work now, opposite my husband. Plus I have somethign nearly every evening. I'm hardly home. Just to come unload, throw a bunch of junk and leave. We sleep, wake up, shower and leave again. I can't wait to be a SAHM again and get this place in shape again.

 My house is clean. And not just tidy up , it's actually clean and I keep it that way because my child deserves to be raised in a clean home - also not keeping your home clean will make your child be a messy dirty adult.

i'm friggen lazy. if i wanted a spotless house, i'd clean more often and more in depth, but as of right now, I say screw it. theres no bugs, and there are clean dishes and clothes for the next day. if i get a day behind, then so be it. cleaning is a saturday main for me.

I like being lazy after a long day at work. I'd rather sit on the floor and play with the baby than dust. I do it occasionally, like last night I swept, mopped, and did the laundry, but I like to relax when i get the chance.
