Ok so I just sent my Dh and Dd off to grocery shop and get the hell out of my hair.  I need to clean my house it looks like college students threw a party in here.  I hate cleaning, I don't want to but I also cannot live in this mess.  I can do this.  Any tips on doing it fast and efficient without feeling like dying and giving up?  There has to be a more fun way to clean?

If we had a typical relationship that way I would, but he does ALL the cleaning I don't hardly ever clean, and I feel bad being such a lazy jerk and not helping.  The house is a mess this time because of me, and I don't want to make him clean up for my lack of motivation and messiness.

Alot of teenager cant get job right now so they do anything for a 20 dollar bill!

Just a thought!

Carry around a basket (I do it w/ a laundry basket) and throw everything in it that doesn't belong in the livingroom and as u walk through the other rooms, put the stuff in those rooms accordingly. And do it w/ the other rooms as well. Good luck. I hate cleaning too

that is a neat idea, I like it.  Everything is in the rooms they belong right now but all over my toddler is a tornado.  I will use that to be better about keeping up with cleaning it is a great idea. thx

That's probably what I'll have to end up doing. Try to have fun with it! (It's not my favorite task either.)
