Why is it that a house can never stay clean. No matter how hard you try there is always something that needs to be picked up or put away. I'm not talking about all the nitty gritty stuff just keeping it presentable for people who drop by. I only have two kids who come behind me creating disaster. I can't imagine what families larger have to do to keep it picked up. When ever I complain about this to my husband he looks at me and says, "And you want to have more kids?" My answer is,"Duh, Why do you think I keep mentioning it to you. I'll wear you down at some point."

That's just my gripe for the week. Anyone else have the same problem?

Sounds like you have a few bumps in the road. Don't be afraid to ask for directions! Good luck with your CAT scan, and I agree with you on the counseling thing for your brother.

As for the kids, it's amazing how quickly they can wreak havoc. I'm taking advantage of my kids' love of spray bottles and getting them to help me out with cleaning wherever possible before they learn it's not fun. I also find that "If I have to clean it up, I'm using a garbage bag" helps. I don't know if that's age appropriate for your kids -- but I haven't read that far yet. But I'm enjoying your style!

I have exactly the same problem, except that I'm 12 and that's it's my little brother. You know him as Evan. I clean up my room nearly every day, then I go to school, and when I get back it is HORRIBLE!!!
