I work full time as does my dh. Our weekdays are crazy hectic. If it is not something that HAS to be done, I don't do it until the weekend. So yes, that means that sometimes my floor need to be swept and the table is cluttered. Sometimes the shoe rack has exploded all over my kitchen, and the toy bins have fewer toys than the floor does. The bathtub might have a ring around it and damp towels may be tossed NEAR the hamper (boys-dh included-are so bad about not quite getting dirty clothes in the hamper, LOL!).
I posted a response in another thread that I don't even try to keep my house clean during the week, and got the response that "being a working mom is no excuse for a dirty home".
What do you think? Am I just being lazy by focusing on chores only on weekends? Is it ok that I want to spend the short amount of time I get with my family during the week WITH my family instead of cleaning? How do you feel about it? Do you sahms ever put off cleaning to have more time with your family?
