Yesterday I sat in the floor and cried:(
I am overwhelmed!
I work 3rd shift, I have 3 children, and a husband who acts like one!
I usually lurk here and there, but I thought I would ask for help/ advice now.
We live in a 4 bed, 2 bath, home...and I have lost control !! We moved in Feb 07....and orginazation never "happend"
Every room looks like an episode of "clean house" before they do the cleaning!
The kids rooms don't seem to have a floor anymore! (By the way, he kids r 5,7, and 9)
I recently made them a chore chart....which is quickly turning into a joke!
It seems I cannot get one "mess" or room clean, because as soon as I move on to something else....whatever I just finished cleaning is already a mess again.
Laundry is a constant battle, because the kids throw clean clothes down in the floor with the dirty....no one seems to be able to find the hamper...clothes just hit the floor where ever they r standing when they take them off!
My living room is a catch all for everything from toys to backpacks to mail...and shoes,and whatever else!
I have no idea what to do....I have tried everything with my kids, short of beating them lol (just kidding) and I am at my whitts end!
We have so much clutter...my husband is Mr.Yard Sale, thrift store, clutter collector.....the more I donate, trash, ect the more he seems to bring in!!
I know this is a LONG post, but I fell I need to get all this out and find some help....We can't even answer the door anymore from embarrasment...we also never have anyone over...Most of our family hasnt even seen our new home because of this!
It is almost the holidays...enough is enough...I want this resolved!
THANKS FOR LISTENING.
PLEASE GIVE ME SOME ADVICE!
