How overwhelming do you find housework? Do you ever feel like it's done?

With 2 older kids and a baby, housework is never done! If I would spend baby's naps doing pick ups and all that, it wouldn't be oerwhelming, but I don't so the laundry and dishes tend to pile up, the clutter wouldn't collect on shelves and the play room wouldn't be a complete disaster... It's just a matter of managing my time better.

 All the time! Its like it is never done or its never done the way I want it to be! I am extremly OCD About my house though so that makes a huge difference.

I feel like it's constant, but not overwhelming. I have certain things that I do on certain days and that helps keep me organized. I do feel like staying at home creates more mess, which equals more cleaning than if me and the kids were at work/daycare.

I dont find it too bad but getting the energy to actually get up and do it these days is a challenge!

That is the way I feel. We just moved into a smaller place, and de cluttered and I am finding it SO much easier to keep up, but I'm so exhausted...and I'm not even having twins!!! Yipes!!

I felt fine about it until about two weeks ago..  And now I just cant seem to stay even just behind it!!  UGH! Once I get one thing done theres ALWAYS something else I need to get done!
