I can handle a mess. I don’t like it but I can handle it, and I can walk by it for days without putting any real effort to absolving it. You know, there pictures to hang and walls to paint. I can’t be bothered by something so mundane as dishes! This sink is actually tame compared to what it normally looks like…
But if THIS drawer is not properly organized, I will UN-cork!
It’s nice to know I have little spaces of this house that remain clean no matter what. Certain drawers MUST maintain order, my cleaning closet has to stay tidy. The truth is my house is rarely clean all at the same time and it can be so frustrating. The dogs bring in more dirt, hair and trash than I can keep up with. I already need to sweep before I even finish sweeping. Such is life. Its better when I face it head on and be realistic with myself. My house is NOT perfect, probably never going to be.
It’s so easy to clean one specific space and take a pretty picture, but 80% of the time it doesn’t look ANYTHING like that picture. I’m being honest. It’s so hard to keep up being a working girl with three messy creatures in the house. I know I’m not the only one who struggles with keeping up with the house. It’s not that I don’t want to, it’s just another full time job on top of the one I already have. Rest assured that if you’re feeling like you’re fighting an uphill cleaning battle, you’re not alone. Can you tell I had a breakdown about it recently? Cause I totally did. Well onward and upward!
