That my house is ever semi clean. I remember in Sc when some people actually came over unannounced to find out if I was Martha Stewart. I was in college with 2 toddlers and a husband. They thought that was "a lot of work" and thus couldnt understand the neat house. Same in Germany, I had 2 babies and a husband, that was it. Of course the house was clean!
I dont even need to list all that we have going on now, and having the husband wasnt work, it was help! Now I have lost the man for a year and trust me, he does a lot of work when here! The children and I have only so much time between school, goats/chickens, 4h, music, homeschool friends, my sewing business, spending time with daddy online/on phone/on skype, and just breathing. So often the house, barns, and yard are messy. So is our hair...
We took today to get some cleaning done and get caught up in math we missed this wk due to my headache.
And okay fine there are piles of things everywhere IE laundry piles but its clean and folded! I get points for that right? And the decorations in the kitchen, and the wallpaper were here when we moved in and once again, I havent any time so it stays. I mean who puts fake grapevines up in their kitchen really!
Proof that the whole house isnt and never will be clean all at once. Oh not true, before daddy comes home for R and R or just home to stay (until next deployment) the house is immaculate. I even dust and organize things like drawers. Its just an act of preparation, we dont think he would care either way but it gives us a focus the wk before he arrives because trust me, those are the longest wks in the world.
Off to clean the basement because its at a point that I dont want to be in anymore, and I need to sew!
