My kids are messy and other thoughts

OK. I'm back on the decluttering kick. Dh gave me the go-ahead to get some outside help with the house. So, now I have to clean my house before she comes on Friday.


Because I live for public ridicule, I'm posting some before pictures.




I'm baring it all here, folks. That's how much I trust you.


So let's all take a moment here and pray for organization and retribution. And a quick tip: Say you smell something offensive that might be in a pile of clothes, don't bury your face in it to check the smell. I'm just sayin'...

We have had a housekeeper for 6+ years - and it is a true sanity saver! If I didn't have to de-clutter and straighted each week before she comes, I think my stacks would get so high I could be an episode of Oprah! Just think, from now on it's just maintenance...

LOL. You know, I really think the best homeschool "support" we can offer other moms is letting them see our house at its worst. Now I know I'm not alone:)

HA! It only gets worse as they get older...the humanity! the stink! the food they cook and sneak to their rooms! I know the sweet lady that comes to my house once every two weeks must just shake her head and wonder at the pigsty she cleans up... I have taken to docking Catie's allowance when the maid works too long in her room! She can just donate her portion!
