Cleaning House..

Saturday, November 3, 2012

What a day.. I have been up since 7am.. and have been cleaning house for about 3 hours now. The living room alone took over an hour. We sure have wayyyy too much stuff! But that is what I am working on.. the freaking clutter.  I am sure all of you have those little areas in your home that fills up with " lifes clutter " . Its took forever just putting stuff where it goes. 

So far I am only really working on the first floor. My plan is to do as much down on the first floor before Scott gets home and then tonight I might start on the 2nd floor and finish it up tomorrow. I am a total mess right now.. hair in a pony tail.. sweat pants and nikes.. I am suppose to go out with Scott after work to do some shopping and I don't really feel like cleaning up to do that.. I might switch out the sweats for jeans but that's it! 

Right now I am taking a break and getting a late lunch in me. 

Jackson and I both are having.. 


Prosciutto Ham and Cucumber Sandwiches.. Its actually really good! 

But my late lunch is about over and I am going to start cleaning up the breakfast area of the kitchen.. then the  bathroom down here.. and then the kitchen and I need to try to go over the dining room too. I'm serious.. this house is too big for one person to clean. I think we seriously need to hire some help just a couple days a week. I am thinking it would be better to go with a big company that is all bonded and insured instead of a private person. That way, if anything comes up missing or breaks.. then they would be responsible. To me, its a pretty nerve racking thinking of a stranger being in my home cleaning but there are never enough hours in the day to get everything done around here. I love this house but its the biggest house I have EVER lived in..And I live with 3 boys in the fall and 4 boys and 1 little girl in the summer. Keeping a clean house is next to impossible. But before I hire anyone, I am going to get it cleaned up the best I can and really do my very best to keep up with it and see how I do. I know I am home all day but that doesn't mean I always want to be cleaning! =)

But for today.. I am the help!!!

Hope you are having a beautiful fall weekend!

  1. Hey girl! I know what you mean about the cleaning. Although I don't live in a big house like you - - I don't want to spend my time off from work cleaning when I want to actually relax or even better, work on my blog and stuff like that ;) I wish I was more like my boyfriend because he actually finds a lot of peace in cleaning, and can do it all day long! lol!! I guess my advice would be to find some fun in cleaning by being present with it, and being grateful for having a big house too :)
