This is so true about trying to take care of our families and homes. The downstairs of our home was kind of clean. We had had a Saturday at home where I made everyone give me a good hour or two of cleaning. I could of had guests over!! But then while the rest of us were cleaning downstairs, our youngest was upstairs "staying out of the way."
She trashed her room.
But don't give up!
For the next couple of months, I am going to give a simple tip each week that will help with this endless battle of keeping the house clean and in order. It will not end all of our housekeeping woes--but just lighten the burden. And hopefully encourage us all--including myself-- to keep priorities straight and perspectives in line.
