House Cleaning

The joy of housecleaning. You all know what I'm talking about. Is there anyone out there who actually likes to clean a house that is not obsessive compulsive?

Granted I like the way my house looks when it's clean, but it's the process of getting there that I don't like. The kid who doesn't pick up her clothes or toys and the bf who doesn't know how to throw anything away just makes my life sooo much easier.

It doesn't help that we live in the country which means no trash service or that we're remodeling from the frame out. It's a little comical to watch me with my vacuum cleaner going in my little path around the rooms inbetween drywall and furnishings that aren't where they belong. I always like the phrase, "Well, you're home all day". Sometimes, I just want to tell him that technically he is too since he works nightshift. Ah, I can't wait for the day when my house is complete and thereby automatically clean at least until they're home for the weekend.

We should all go on strike until we get maids!

Enough of my housecleaning rant. The item in the picture is a pair of my sterling silver earrings recently relisted in my shop.

I'm with you! Since I started on Etsy, I don't clean nearly as often as before. Fortunately my dh & dau mostly pick up after themselves.

Nice earrings! Cleaning, ugh. With my hubby working from home, at least I don't have to worry about the "you're home all day" comment. ;)
