After working all these crazy shifts this week and only getting 4-5 hours of sleep at night I been slacking on my cleaning and laundry. I was able to get out of work at 130 today so I took advantage of it and started cleaning my house. I cleaned for 2 hours and the only rooms I got done was the kitchen and bathroom. I also did dishes and been doing laundry in between. I am done for today my body is sore. I will finish the other 2 rooms tomorrow. But it feels nice to have a semi clean house again and clean clothes I was running out of stuff I hate that. I never get behind like this. Does this ever happen to you? I love the feeling when I'm very productive like this and knowing I did a good job because I'm sweating by the time I'm done cleaning.

It's possible to be "done" cleaning? That never happens around here. My boyfriend and three cats are quite "helpful" with the housework...

Nope I believe it never gets done. I cleaning every 2 days and I still feel I missed something. I'm a clean freak so always gotta keep up on it.

I don't have even a load of clothes here. I have nothing in the sink or anything. the only thing I could do right now is mop the bathroom floor. between me and adrain being neat freaks the house stays in perfect shape. I can't take clutter and he can't take anything out of the norm so we are good with our house.

I am a neat freak too but working different shifts I neglected to keep up on it. I clean every other day because we don't have carpet on some floors so they get nasty with coming n the house with our shoes on and bringing in snow and mud etc. We enter our home thru the kitchen and that floor gets dirty the most so I have to clean it often. We don't wear shoes in the house though. Other than that my house is pretty clean so I don't need to clean as often as I do but I love to keep up on it so it stays that way.

I have been there when the house just gets away from me because there is just too many other things going on, and the laundry is piling up. I do laundry for 5 people so it is a lot of laundry if I don't stay on top of it and then I start hearing it from everyone. I don't like it when the house gets away from me, I don't like having dishes in the sink. So I know what you are saying it is very stressful when the house is not up to par.

Yup it does happen in our home. In a week the house gets messy then after a weekend clean-a-thon the house will be clean again. This would last for about another week then it gradually gets messy. Every after a thorough clean it feels a lot lighter and makes you feel proud.

well, you have done a really great job, add some music for fun and getting energy while you work and set things. just whatever home work you do, add some fun in that to not feel tired so much. music gives energy so choose good ones.

My place could use some cleaning too, and my laundry basket needs to get emptied this weekend. I would like to do the stuff that you just finished in your household. Unfortunately I am busy the whole running up and down doing errands and some work related stuff that when I get home I just want to sit down, watch TV or mylot lol! But tomorrow, I promise I will start on something productive.

I like to have my house clean but it certainly takes a lot of work to keep it that way. I love to have visitors so I feel I must have the house in some order and then, after they leave, there`s a lot of extra work to do. Still, I love that.

That is quite a lot of cleaning to do you got there. Normally, I am not very good at keeping my house clean. Once in a while, I would have this sudden urge to clean my house and when I do start cleaning, I would make sure it really clean. After all the tiredsome works, I would start feeling great for the accomplishment. The feeling of satisfaction and try maintain it clean as long as I can.

It feels very good when the house is clean and you have clean clothes :) I'm always trying to keep at least the bedroom clean for more than 3 days, but it's difficult because i share it with my sister.I'm glad you almost finished and i hope i'll be able to finish until tomorrow night :))

Yes I know how you are feeling. I love it too when you catch up with cleaning and laundry and it gets mostly done or all done. I did all the laundry today so that tomorrow I will clean the house and everything will be finished where I can enjoy the next few days without cleaning. I love when it all gets done even though in the back of my mind I'm thinking "all this cleaning for me to do it all over again next week."
