First off, I have two little kids. My house generally has toys everywhere. Don't get me wrong it gets a good scrub down the beginning of every week. Bathroom cleaned and floors mopped. But the toys and the clutter, and the art projects, and the toys uggg! It's enough to drive anyone crazy! It's hard to balance spending quality time with your children, with keeping them entertained, and grocery shopping and cleaning and paying bills and making meals doing dishes and cleaning up meals. I'm not perfect, no one is. If you were to stop in on a surprise visit this is probably what you would see:
Office: This table is almost NEVER clean. The floor although vacuumed, has pattern pieces and elastic and Lysol cleaning wipes on the it. I am constantly making the children take their toys back downstairs and telling them to not leave them sitting on the table. As you can see there is a purse and a batman figurine.
Living room: This mess in this corner is almost always here. It's become my dumping ground for all my paintings. Mop, very dusty cubby (I dusted it off after I saw this photo) and put away those fishing game fish on the bottom cubby.
Basement living room: Pillows and blankets strewn about. Hand weights still not put away properly after workout because some children were whining that they "had to have a snack or they would die." Folding chairs still not put away.
When I take pictures for my blog I do usually clean the area up first. It's hard to showcase something when there is too much going on in the background. But "this" is what is lurking in the "other" corner. Yes! We make messes too!
