I've decided that no matter what I do or don't do, my house will never be clean. Sure it my be straightened, but man is it cluttered. I need to de-clutter and throw some shit away. That would go a long way in helping the rest of the house. I just have a problem throwing stuff away. Add to that we have no freaking place to store anything!!!! Ok we have 7 people living in a 3 bedroom/2 bath home. Each of the smaller bedrooms house 2 girls each. In one we have a set of bunk beds, a dresser, and a chest and a closet. The dresser and chest are packed to the breaking point with clothes, the closet is a haven for toy storage. And also under the bed have boxes for toy storage. The other bed room has 2 twin beds and two small chest and closet. Same story for that room only less toys because most are in the other room. Our bed room has our queen bed plus a toddler bed, 1 lg dresser and 1 small dresser, 1 entertainment stand, 2 night stands with 2 drawers each and 1 closet. All are packed. With the exception of the small dresser because I've been sooo lazy and haven't put the punky 3's clothes in there! Our bathroom does have some storage for towels and linens but not much. I really really need to do some purging. But honestly I'm so freaking overwhelmed I don't know where to start, or how. I suck at being domesticated. My dear hubby has put up with so much of this from me too. Or I should say me and my punks. They take after their mom. Sucks for them and me. I'm thinking about logging what I actually get accomplished once at home besides the normal cooking dinner and bathing punk 3 and all that standard stuff. I think the saying "A woman's work is never done" comes into play here. I can do it. I think I can, I think I can.... repeated over and over in my head. Please don't let me land on my face when I get home. Let me accomplish something. Start small and work up. Right?

2 your breaks:

We have the same house! Only we have 3 girls in one room and no baby in ours. My son has his own room but tons of junk in it! You should see all of our closets...scarey! I could not fit one more Polly Pocket in any of them!

LMAO!!! Jen, you and I were never great at tossing things out. Needless to say, I have learned how to slim down on the junk and clean it all out. Yard Sales and GoodWill work wonders.
I am getting ready for my annual yard sale. If I do not need it, use it, like it or see it, I sell it.
Right now, my house is about like yours since the kids are not helping and the pain cant. He got a trip to the ER and screwed up his knee again.

Ok Ok, I will shut up now...
