Is your home messy, clean or somewhere in between? I'm a really clean person and I can't stand clutter. Some people think with four kiddos and one on the way I'm too clean. But I can not stand certain things to be a mess. I don't understand people who live in homes that are cluttered, smelly, or look like they have never been cleaned. Especially when you have kids living in them. I think when you let it get too bad that is a form of neglect.
I have lots of friends who are like me and you could walk into their homes anytime and they would be clean, not perfect but clean! I know a few other moms who have laundry all over the place, stuff all over the floor, dishes never seem to be done, and I would prefer to use a gas station bathroom then their bathroom. I babysat for a family once that had seven cats and the house smelled like cat urine. After you left the house your clothing would smell just like the house, it was nasty. I honeslty don't understand how people live like this.
I get that not everyone desires a super clean sparkling home and that's fine. But how do you stand living in something that smells hideous or looks like you don't know what a trash can or cleaning products are?
I watch the BBC show "How Clean is your House" and I can not believe people live this way. A lot of the time they have children as well. It is really disgusting and down right lazy, IMO!
So, how messy is to messy? Is this just me and my "clean freak" nature or is this actually gross to the majority of us?
