Someday I won’t live in a house that is a total pigsty, but today is NOT that day!
I deep clean regularly and sometimes our house is presentable, but for the better part of the last 2 decades our house has been a total pigsty. I’m not talking about a crumb on the counter or the laundry isn’t folded type scenario, I’m referring to a hurricane hit it type disaster! When the kids were younger we couldn’t be bothered with cleaning because there are just too many amazing parks and adventures to be had in our neighborhood! Now that they’re older it is mission impossible to get them to do their chores(as much a fault in my parenting as it is due to the fact that we have some serious ADD type issues in this gene pool!). So while I may wish our house was showcase clean now, I know that when it finally is it will mean 2 things; 1) my kids no longer live with me and 2) I am not in the middle of some huge passion inspired project. So today I am feeling less concerned about the appearance of our home and much more grateful and blessed to have my kids here to live passionately in it with me! ❤
