Messy House



Okay, for some reason, some of you REALLY wanted to see those messy house photos that I took. While it didn't look this bad when we finally had the wonderful get together for my even more wonderful mother-in-law, this is what our house has looked like for TOO LONG! Hopefully, we'll stay cleaner for awhile. Sadly, the photo of the basement (fourth photo) is what it looks like every day. However, the kids have to clean up their mess every night before bed time, so it looks clean at least AFTER they're in bed!

Ya know, as big as our house is, as much space as there is, WE DON'T HAVE CLOSET SPACE!!! We do have a nice sized storage area waaay upstairs, but that is filled with Christmas things (that still aren't competely up ... and won't be this year!) baby things, financial records, etc.
I'm gonna post some birthday photos probably tomorrow....

Wow! You are brave to post those pictures! Still not even close to how one of our renter's apt. looked like when he moved out! It was just unbelievable that anyone could survive in his space....actually there wasn't any space for anyone to live in and he HAD closets!
Good luck cleaning.

Ha ha! I'm not showing you MINE! :) Just be comforted that you are not alone. When I cleaned for our cookie exchange this week, my hubby commented that I should invite my friends over more often so that our house could stay clean.

yeah, that's an excuse I use for my husband...let's invite people over so I have a reason to clean (rather, have him help me clean!)
