Horrible Housewife of the year....

And the award goes to..... ME!

Let me just say I suck at being a housewife. I was cleaning out my refrigerator tonight, yes the one that is half working, and I am totally amazed we are all still alive and not suffering from some new unidentifiable strand of bacteria or virus. HA HA, I know you are all thinking, wasn't she just bitching about a virus? I think Eric said it best when he said my bedroom was like a toxic waste dump, this was back when I was 16, but my attitude towards cleaning has not changed much. My kids and I are totally clean, as far as our bodies and clothes we wear. My house, put it this way, I don't like surprise company. My goal is to learn to keep my house clean. Mike knew when he met me how messy I was, still he wanted us to move in together, cleaning habits did not change. We decide to get married and buy our first house, still no changes. We now have 3 dogs, 2 kids and one hell of a mess. I really do not enjoy the mess. My thoughts now are that my 2 year old is learning bad bad habits from me. When I was little, most girls dreamed of houses and babies, my dream as far as I can remember was to one day pay someone to do my cleaning. Imagine something you hate, I am talking really really despise, multiply that by 10 and you may have an inkling as to how much I dislike cleaning. I love having a clean house and clean towels and even clean dishes, I just have the hardest time getting them clean. I have taken advice from everyone, even attempted the flylady's routine, which I think is bullshit, no normal person cleans that much. I talked myself into writing down my goals for the day, I had 3 things today and managed to cross off 2 1/2. Not a bad start. Should you feel inclined to give advice, I will listen. I need all the encouragement I can get.

That aforementioned "Eric," would that be me? Maybe you should get some of those hazardous material handling suits and hand them to surprise guests. I am pretty sure your dad can help you get your hands on some. My mom can attest to Lori's cleaning habits as well, call her and ask. She cleaned Lori's room once, it only took her 3 days...sun up to sundown.
