Kids, cleaning and a link up


This week I am participating in the Friday Follow from Midday Escapades.  To participate in Friday Follow head over to Midday Escapades to link up!


Cleaning your house while your kids are still growing up is like shoveling the walk before it stops snowing.
Phyllis Diller 

Couldn't have said it better myself Phyllis. As pretty much anyone that knows me will tell you I have this 'thing' about a clean house. I have to have it. My kids will even tell you, "A clean house makes mommy happy." The bad thing is that it not only has to be clean, but everything and I mean everything has to be put it it's own little spot. Yes, I realize that I'm anal retentive.  Some might would even say that I'm OCD, and they may be right. Of course if they don't have a title that ends with 'ist' I'm not listening to them.  Having three young children and living in a very small house means that I constantly have to stay on my toes. I clean up through out the day and then when Kylie and Audrey get in from school and make a mess I clean up again. After I get the girls bathed and ready for bed I go through and clean yet again so that when I wake up in the morning I will have a clean house to start the day. So I'm sure you can only imagine how thrilled I was to wake up this morning to this:
I wonder if this might have anything to do with why I'm so tired all the time?

Hi. Nice to meet you. I've given up, but if you run out of things to clean you are welcome to come on over.

Nice to meet you. I hope you will stop by sometime.
