I have been working so much overtime this month. (good for Christmas cash) but i am so tired, I don't want to do anything but watch tv when I am not working. 

My house is a mess and i just can't find the energy/motivation to get anything done. 

Wondering how everyone else does it?

 Nooo! How's the saying go? Good moms have dirty ovens, sticky floors and happy kids?? That makes me feel better about my mess everytime. :)

I get motivated just by looking at the mess. Lately, I just cant stand it. If there is something that needs done, I can't relax until its done

We have company coming over, and I don't want to be humiliated.

I am trying to keep up now, with the help of my boys.

 It's super hard to get motivated if I've neglected it so bad that I don't know where to start. That's when I start making lists so then I know what needs priority and everything that needs to get done. I start with one thing and that usually kicks my butt into gear to get more things crossed off the list.

I am in the same boat as you. Knowing I'm cooking Tuesday for Thanksgiving motivated me to atleast clean the kitchen and dining room. I haven't  had a day off in over a month, I'm off on Tuesday, and then I'm not off again until Christmas.
