Dishes spilling over the edge of the kitchen sink.
More dishes littering the countertops.
Mountains of laundry blocking the door to the laundry room and falling out of the clothes hamper in the bedroom.
And then there’s all the toys making it impossible to walk a straight line through the living room.
This is the state of our house at the end of the week when my husband is working nights.
Oh, don’t get me wrong. I do dishes during the week, usually after dinner when he is no longer sleeping and the noise won’t disturb him. But somehow the dishes seem to multiply on their own, and by the end of the week mini towers of dirty dishes have appeared.
And I catch up all the laundry before the week he works nights, but let’s face it, with 4 people wearing clothes, some who go through more than one (or two) outfits a day, the laundry also seems to get out of hand that week.
(Okay, I admit it, the toys all over the floor are an every day occurrence.)
It seems I always start off doing great with my spring cleaning list, but this one area… There are a million things I’d rather do than tackle it.
Do you have an area like this around your house? Something that it’s impossible to gain the motivation to organize?
Me? I’m hoping that the cleaning fairies will come visit the little fairy house out in the herb garden and decide to sneak in and voila – take away all the mess.
