Why Do Certain Things Never Get Done

I know the dishes have to get done. And I am really good about unloading the plates and the silver (stainless stain...but you know what I meant) while warming supper in the microwave. But I never reload the dishwasher and turn it on. I clean the inside of the tub. But I rarely wipe down the part where the soap and shampoo sits. I clean the toys from the living room, but leave the baby nail clippers sitting on the counter.

Alan is worse than me. He unloads the groceries, but leaves anything that doesn't go in the frig on random counters. He puts pacifiers on top of the tv (not the usual spot) in hopes he will use the paci later. (He won't, because when Loki is screaming for the paci, Alan won't think to look on the tv.)

Things in our house have a home. And if we just put things there, or talked about it and created a home for new stuff, we'd have a much neater, easier-to-live-in home.

So what's stopping us?

Etcetera.

Life. Kids. Jobs. All of the above. You have the choice of either have a clean and spotless house or more time with your babies. Most people choose more time with babies and only get the house spotless when company is coming over. Except for my mom. But she's a rare exception and my childhood wasn't very fun :)

I agree totally with you! My house is a wreck but you know what Emma and I went to the library for the first time today on a bike, we went strolling, and we played outside. The house can wait! If only I picked up after myself then it wouldn't be so bad.
