I am normally a clean freak. Used to be you could literally eat off my floors. Notice I said "used to be" lol. School, and 3 grown up difficult children, a toddler, 3 dogs, and 2 cats have done alot to completely kill my desire to clean. Picking up is the best I've managed for several months. This is just due to time constraints. I mean, yeah I go to school during the day but there is also homework and studying to do once I get home. Same for Nichole. I'm spending my week off for Spring break "catching up cleaning" and Spring cleaning. OMG! You wouldn't BELIEVE what just "picking up" for 3months can do to a house!!! EWWWWWW! Thanks to Nichole, husband, Darrin, and myself the livingroom is clean. It only took 3 hrs. It is NOT spring cleaned. Only clean. I spent 6 hrs in the kitchen. It also is not yet spring cleaned. Just clean. Ready to be spring cleaned. We are now tackling a mountain of laundry that got piled up while Nichoe and I were studying for finals. I am so glad I have a whole week for this cleaning. I'm gonna need it. So...... You know your house is dirty when..... It takes 6 hours to clean up the kitchen.
