of cleaning house.
I'll admit it. I am a horrible housekeeper. I am not sure where I get it. Mom, maybe you can give me some insight...
I am pretty good at keeping my kitchen clean. There are days when the dishes will sit but I feel like if my kitchen is clean at least we are not going to get sick.
My problem really is the clutter. If I could get out from under the clutter it would be much easier to clean everything.
We live in a very old house (90 years old next year) and it is drafty. We have a large dog that drags in dirt. We also have a cat that sheds. Plus two kiddos that think it is fun to pick up any pine cone or acorn they can find and bring home for a "craft".
I just pulled the couch out from the wall to sweep out from under it. I found, in no particular order, a 2 Polly pockets, a Polly pocket boot, 2 Polly pocket hangers, the flyswatter I have been searching high and low for, the red magnadoodle, about $1.50 in change, a couple of dog treats that were apparently being saved, 3 miniature airplanes, and a lot of dog hair. Gross.
OK, enough stalling I need to get back in and finish rearranging and cleaning my living room and dining room.
Did I mention I bought a new vacuum? Yeah, I was totally disgusted when I vacuumed my area rug in the living room. But glad that I bought the new vacuum!
