I've always said, tidy house = tidy mind.

If it were up to me the house would be perfect all the time but, I have 5 children. They are on school holidays and, I literally can't clean one room without them messing up somewhere else so, for the moment I have given up. literally. I can't motivate myself to clean because, it's just so pointless and I don't know where to start. I am so stressed about the mess and not actually doing anything about it. Ridiculous.

How tidy are you?

I'm semi-sloppy.

I'm clean of body.

I'm lazy at housework.

My house is not really dirty. I never leave dishes in the sink or garbage around.

I do have a tendency to leave the house dusty, so my wife has to dust. She gets irritated at me for that.

I tend to deep clean a room then spend the rest of the day throwing tantrums if someone messes it up. If we were good friends, I'd probably try to tell you politely it was a mess, fail miserably and then ask where your cleaning cupboard is... then start by cleaning that.

I have noticed I clean more when I am stressed though.. and, I don't seem to care about my mess, just other peoples which sucks when you live with 6 other people lol

I would try to be really nice to you...because I enjoy a clean house, yet don't work hard enough to assure this. And I believe you have a consummate ability in cleaning, and would benefit greatly from it. I would try to show my appreciation, somehow.

I would try to compensate for my incompetence in this area by using my strengths in other areas.

I am very messy, and I admit it.
My house always needs Spring cleaning! :-(

I think that when I'm not stressed the main reason I keep it clean and tidy is laziness... if I let it get too bad, I will have to do more to put it right and I won't know where to start. I quite often just tidy what I can see from the sofa, then I can pretend the rest doesn't exist lol

I do have a no multitasking rule now because, I was getting distracted and leaving half finished jobs everywhere

I wish I was lazy like that! :wink:

His nickname is Yaz. Your screen name is Yazz.

He was one of the greatest ballplayers of all time for the Boston Red Sox.

i can be a real pig, if i get into a lazy mind set i end up leaving food out, clothes, and other stuff, failing to pick up after my pets and myself.

as soon as i tell myself "be more clean" im a clean freak. i keep everything clean after that.

my personal hygiene is enough to keep me from stinking and keeping the knots out of my hair. Showers are a schedualed event and i look forward to them. My personal Hygiene plumits during Summer due to lack of schedual, structure and isolation.
