need motivation to clean? I need some. My Dh gets home at 6 30 and I want a clean house. I have been struggeling with it and my children are tornado's. I don't get it. I just want a clean house. I think I will get up and see if I can clean something soon. Maybe we can do a general cleaning thing on here in the AM? IDK something to keep things going?

Our place is a mess. :( When I feel better, if I need motivation to clean, I always pretend my mother-in-law is coming over.

LOL. My house was the cleanest when MY DH mother was over f or that dreadful month. UGH! hated it. To avoid her I cleaned. Needless to say it was President worthy. :)

I need motivation to get some laundry done. The girls are cleaning their rooms right now and the rest of the house is clean but we've been gone for a good part of the day visiting a friend.

Me too. It doesn't help I don t like the house.

I keep yelling at my older two (10 & 12) things they should do automattically. But no. They need reminding. ALL DAY! Dh gets home in 1.5 hrs. If I can get it looking half way decent I will be good. Maybe we all can get together and do something before Friday? For the weekend so It can get messy all over again?

I know how you feel. =(. Dealing with life stress and an Autistic child is tough. It gets to me sometimes too. The 1st thing I want to do is put my 8 yr old daughter with Aspergers into a group home thinking it will make life easier. It prob won't.... take the crying baby in a room, get him or her quiet and relax!
