Cleaning Therapy

Some may think the words CLEANING THERAPY are oxy-morons....I on the other hand really believe in the words. Nothing warms my heart more than a sparkling clean, everything-in-it's-place, completely organized house. I have an on going battle within me at all times, because if you have ever been to my house, you know it does not meet the above mentioned standards. And if you have a child, a dog, a husband, or are a human, you know that it's IMPOSSIBLE to keep up on it as well. BUt I really do try... What is most heart warming about a clean organized house is the ability to "SEE" the results....turning a stinking, dirty mess into organized bliss! I heart dramatic results!!!

Where do I get these odd genes from, you ask? mother. She so willingly passed them on to me. I always find myself thinking...what would mom do with, OR where would she find a home for 10 random paintbrushes and some rubber gloves, or if mom were here she would tell me to...(fill in the blank). I also find myself asking the same question about my cutie sis-in-law Betsy (BTW, who just had a baby 2 days ago!!!!!!). She is known for her mad skills of cleanliness and organization...If only I could be more like them!

Just wanted to share a little bit of my "obsession" because maybe if I write it down, it will motivate me to keep up on it. Look who is taking after me...

I swear he did this ALL on his own!! He likes cleaning almost as much as his mom!

I totally feel the same way about having a clean house and yes, it is hard with a husband and children. But if I just take 20 minutes before bed, I can make it look somewhat respectable again. Remember we almost always won the free pizza every week for having the cleanest apartment in college. Hope you are enjoying your FALL.
