True Confession

I am a slob.  Let me just put it out there - I'm slobby {is that a word?}.  I pile my clothes on the floor ; I leave papers on the table and shoes by the door.  And...hub's favorite my stuff is everywhere on the bathroom counter.

I wish it weren't so, but it's true.  While I really love a clean house {it makes me feel better about life}, apparently I don't love it enough to actually so something about it.  Anyone feel me on this?  These days I blame it on our old-school apartment - no dishwasher.  {All of our clean-up time goes to hand-washing the dishes}.  If you ask anyone who has ever lived with me, they'll tell you it's true.

Before leaving work today, I had grand plans to clean the house from top to bottom because our life group from church is coming over tomorrow night.  {I mean, c'mon, I don't want them to see our dirty house}.  Well, it didn't happen.  I had a hair appointment at 7:45 tonight which meant my evening got cut in half.  I didn't get into a cleaning groove before I left, and by the time I got home I had no motivation to do it.  I guess our friends will just have to see how the Kelly's really live.  :)

Sometime a couple of weeks ago while browsing Pinterest, I found this cool calendar guide to keeping my home clean.  I love lists and tips.  I've been trying oh-so-hard to follow this guide, but haven't been 100% successful.  I'd say I've been a little better about doing the dishes at night and trying to put my clothes away {tonight I hung up 7 pairs of pants - no, they weren't all on the floor}.

Here's to lofty goals and {hopefully} a cleaner house.  Do you have any tricks or tips for cleaning the house?


  1. My cleaning schedule goes on the "family" calendar.... sheets, bathrooms, vacuuming, paying bills, you name it, it is all there. If it isn't on the calendar, it doesn't happen! ha I too have to have a schedule. It makes me function so much more efficiently! Happy Cleaning! wink

  2. For the record, I was at your house that night and didn't note any messiness/uncleanliness. crazy girl. But then again...I did spill tea on your carpet. bahhhhhh! sorry!!
