The Cleaners!!

March 07, 2012

Do you ever feel like cleaning is the most futile, time waste of an activity that there is?  It is the thing I spend the most time on with the least to show for it.  It is like trying to dig a hole at the beach at high tide.  I'll get all the toys in the office cleaned up and then move on to the kitchen, but while I am cleaning the kitchen those-who-must-not-be-named are messing the office back up.  And even if I do manage to finish cleaning the kitchen (which really doesn't even seem possible some days because a meal always comes along and interrrupts me and adds to my work) and go back to tidy the office back up and then move on to the living room, they will just mess up the kitchen and office as soon as my back is turned.  It is like they are following me around, making messes in my wake.  I mean, sure, cleaning is a great way to kill time, but in the end you have to ask yourself if the time really deserved to die?

  1. I don't have children, so I don't think I quite understand...but if it helps, I get really irritated when my roommates don't keep the kitchen clean:)

  2. I have weeks where I just give up entirely. "Fine, live in squalor, you crazies!" I yell. It doesn't last long though, the mess drives me nuts and I'm at it again. I need to train myself to not care. Do you have a 'how to' post for that?

  3. For a long time I had a cute little sign posted that said "Cleaning a house while children are still growing is like shoveling the walk while it is still snowing" though blizzarding would be more appropriate, were it a word.

  4. I especially liked your title. I kinda wish sometimes that I had a room shaped machine driven by two little goblins that pushed through every room of the house, plowing everything down behind it. Oh wait. I guess I kinda do.
