How I wish that I could be a super mom and boast proudly that I LIVE for HOUSEWORK!
...and that my house is certainly a destined representative for a Mr. Clean commercial!
I do keep a somewhat tidy home, if closets do not count....or my 9 year old son's bedroom! Do we EVEN need to go there???
I admit cleaning house provides instant gratification; the smell, sparkle, and shine....rewards of your efforts! And if my home could retain it's cleanliness just a little longer, I wouldn't begrudge it so! Just how fast, and in what quantities can dust bunnies, dirty dishes, and dirty laundry accumulate! It's astounding!!! The eighth wonder of the world!
There are many things I'd rather be doing....reading a good book, riding the roads in search of a new thrift or antique store to explore, playing in my flowers, or blogging! "smiles" ...or, and I am woman enough to admit it...taking an occasional NAP!
If I could be Jane, of the Jetsons, and have a ROSIE the robot....how sweet would that be! My dear husband, who does NOT assist with household duties, has instead offered that I hire outside help....A MAID! But I would only have to clean up, before she comes to clean up! How can that be any help at all?
I have created a tactic to prod my desire to clean house.....buy a new decor accessory, even if it is small & inexpensive! You can't put a newbie in dirty territory! LOL! OR, a new cleaning product...I'm always eager to try something new, and with the new tantalizing fragrances of cleaning products..... How can you not possibly imagine that you are an exclusive spa, while the scents of AMETHYST MIST surround and provoke your senses?!?! Certainly makes laundry a little more bearable!
So, since I am feeling better, I must face this battle! Put on my big girl pants and go face the chores that await! I certainly wouldn't want to get fired and lose my good job! But then, I think it is secure! "smiles"
