I am only good at/motivated to clean when I'm angry. My boyfriend is fanatical about keeping the kitchen clean (which is amusing to me since he lets the cat on the counter). I, on the other hand, hate that when we do the laundry, he absolutely will not put his clothes away, so they're sitting all over the living room.

Our house is actually clean, but you wouldn't know it. We live in his mom's house and it is literally full of her stuff. She is a hoarder. When they lost their 4000 square foot house almost five years ago, they moved back into my boyfriend's childhood home, which is maybe 1500 square feet (five bedrooms, but three original bedrooms are tiny...the other two were added on and one is tiny while the other is basically a one-car garage converted into a room). She didn't get rid of ANYTHING when they moved. We use the (tiny) master bedroom (not the garage room, the original master bedroom), main bathroom, living room and kitchen. Every other room is full of her junk (to the point where you can't walk through them...except the smaller of the original bedrooms...that's got all my boyfriend's older beother's junk in it). There's also all her (and the older brother's) junk on the front and back porches, as well as stuffed into half of the two-car garage in the back.

Anyway, point of that rant was that we can't really "spring clean" the house...except the four rooms we live in.

It's like the nesting and frantic cleaning a pregnant woman starts doing a coupe of weeks before delivery.......

I'm exhausted.......it really wasn't too bad to clean, as I'm pretty much a natural clean freak.....it's just the urge to clean EVERYTHING!

Is anyone else going through this? Do we need a support group......????
No support, but you are welcome to come over to my house. For 3 days, may be a week. We need some cleaning!

I'll even pay your air fare to come here!

I am not a stupid person - I am considered to possess versatility but I have yet to come to a logical conclusion as to why I would rather sweep all the paths and drive than vacuum my living room!

I'm one of those people who would love a wife, who's good with housework and dishes. She could have a live in boyfriend but only if he's employed and can do acreage maintanance, while I play with my horses. I'm not fond of housework but I do get that twice annual urge to get ruthless with it. Two days and it's done, and then I feel I can breath.

Perfect! You fork out for that, I'll be cheap and then pay out a cheap ryanair flight from yours to Dublin!

Gah, it's raining today (and supposed to for the next 4 darn days) so I guess I will resort to catching your cleaning affliction Muppet. Such a bummer, I got my outdoor arena worked up all nice and pretty yesterday and now the April showers have arrived. Another day in the indoor for me, UGH.
