This is a day of ranting! Do you ever wonder why we bother even trying to keep our houses clean? I keep telling myself that if the rest of the family doesn't care if the house is clean, why should I? I have two ADULT children living with us and their excuses are that they work, if I TELL them what I needs done; they will do it. (I think I need to start putting a note on the counter) I don't want to throw my kids out but maybe its time to start taking some money instead! (maybe that will change things?) I keep trying to get myself not to worry about the house, that we are the ones that have to live with it. That is fine, as long as no one invites people to my house! (NOT GOING TO HAPPEN) I guess I am just too darn picky! They keep saying, that life is too short to worry about how your house looks. I really try going by that statement, but it just doesn't work. I want a house that has a place for everything I have. (which doesn't include the floor!) I usually don't worry too much until the hubby tells me he has invited someone from work up for the weekend or a day. (then it's a mad dash to clean the house) I try not to worry all the much about how the house looks or the outside. Then like the last couple of days, I have just been in one of those funks where I just want to rent a dumpster and start throwing. I could really start talking about the outside but if I do, I think I will be in tears by the time this post is done. I am blowing all this probably way out of proportion, but it feels better to rant once in awhile. I could make all this better if I wanted to do all the work myself and pay someone to build things for me. (just to damn expensive and I would be working from sunup to sundown for the next millennium!) BOY! do I feel better now, that I got that off my chest :=)
I apologize for the complaining, I really do have a wonderful family and a wonderful husband, that works his butt off to give us all what we do have! I guess the older I get the less I like the clutter and mess. I guess I went years with the miss matched furniture and the second hand junk that it would really be nice to walk into a house that was a little bit better put together.
