Why can I never seem to get the housework done?  Is it because I don't have the energy?  Do I spend too much time on kidspot / facebook?  Can I really not be bothered?  Or is it truly impossible to keep up with 2 kids and hubby?  Is it just me????

Spring cleaning season seems to have hit our place, I feel pretty tidy and organised at the moment. However it's not always this way. I do have all my jobs on a weekly basis written in my diary so I get them done on time, I really hate housework building up.

Housework is such a thankless task!!!
It's never ending and it's the same thing week after week month after month. Not surprisingly I have times when I just can't be bothered and I have to drag myself through just the basics.

Totally agree with everyone, My favorite time is when the kids are in bed and my husband is at work and everything is tidy, and i can appreciate it with a glass of wine....well until the morning at least when husbands work clothes are everywhere and the toy room has exploded, and we start all over again lol!
but at least i have the glass of wine :-)

well the kids are in bed, and I'm on my second glass of wine. I'm sitting back admiring my handiwork. No, not a nice clean house. It's a train track wending it's way under the coffee table, around the armchair legs, in front of the fireplace, behind the couch and then back under the coffee table. Yep, it pretty much takes up the entire living room. Naturally there are trains littered everywhere as well, I did THINK about picking them up but since I've been forbidden to touch the track it seemed a bit of a waste of time. They'd just bring them all out again in the morning. There's a liberal sprinkling of cookie crumbs bordering the tracks too, it seems they all followed their trains as they were eating afternoon tea.
 
Well, there's nothing else for it. I'd better have another glass of wine.

Sounds like a great plan ekubo and besides after that third glass of wine you probably won't notice those crumbs so much anyway.

You're not the only one raglanmum. I work part time and just felt like I was sinking. Apart from the every day things that need to be done like dishes, washing up etc, there's the once a week kind of jobs too like mopping etc that I just couldn't ever get done.

Now, last Christmas, the week before I think it was, knowing that The Bloke was shopophobic and I often end up buying something and telling him what he's bought me, I had a wonderful Idea. Last year for Christmas , he bought me a housekeeper for the year. Yeah, kind of an expensive pressie, but hey, why not? We don't splash out on many luxuries.

So while I still have Mount Washmore, and toys from one end of the house to the other, I sleep at night knowing that at least the loo's clean and the kitchen sink's been wiped!

The $40 dollars I spend having someone come in and do the bathrooms, dusting, floors and kitchen is the best money ever spent.  Takes the pressure off and means that even if things get messy they are always clean :)

I like the idea of someone doing the cleaning for me... but on our strict budget at the moment it's not possible!
