Anybody Care About Messy Houses/Rooms?
Heyz,

Just a weird question....I set stuff down all over the house and my room. My room is a mess and it's not some place a neat freak would like to go.

Please do the poll thingamabobber.

1. I'm a man.
2. I have a house without a basement or a garage and have lived here for 20 years.
3. I'm a hobby junkie
4. I work at home.
5. I will never live without a dog or three.

I wish my house could be clean but that really would require a basement and a garage. It would also require a separate area for my jewelery work since polishing sends dust everywhere.

I pretty much have to tear something down and rebuild to get it clean (it's the man thing) but any more there's so much stuff that just means somewhere else gets trashed.

I am working on building storage and planning on going with tile instead of carpet. Hopefully that will take care of some of the clutter and dust.
But I'll still be a man.
It has worked somewhat with my kitchen (new cabinets, floor, countertop and sink), but I really hate cleaning the stove and cabinet doors.

For a short period I was able to keep the living room clean, but I still couldn't manage to keep up with dust.

My house is clean enough to healthy and dirty enough to be happy.

My kitchen is usually clean and cleaned up, but I have issues with flat surfaces..like this computer desk. I clean up regularly though or I couldn't stand it.

My house is very cluttered, but it drives me crazy. Yet I can't keep it picked up. Did I mention I have 2 small children? I'm not a neat freak though

I would like my house to be cleaner than what it is, but I find that I'd rather knit than clean.

My kids do a lot of chores in order to pull their weight...plus they're home during the summer, so they might as well.

It's funny cause I just blogged about this yesterday. Feel free to check it out by clicking the link in my signature (sorry...don't mean to put in a plug, but the timing is cool).

Cleaning= not my forte. Now that I'm home full time (til school starts!) I feel like I should be cleaning more but.... eh. Maybe I'm a pig but I just don't care? The only time I "clean up" is when we have company.

I would love to have the time to thoroughly clean my house, but, with a hubby, 2 kids, 2 dogs (one being an English Mastiff), and 6 cats, well, it just ain't gonna happen any time soon...lol...My house is what I like to call an organized mess Yeah, it's cluttered (I used to think this house had plenty of room...haha), but, the messes are usually at the very least, organized. Like my mess of mail and assorted papers that are in a nice tidy stack on the counter by the microwave, or, my mess of neatly stacked books on one of my dining room shelves, ya know, things like that...lol...The kids' rooms however I just can't keep up on them.

I care, however I'm not a fast mover on it. I'm currently reading "It's all too much" by Peter Walsh, I really can't say enough great things about it!!!
