Get Real

Am I the only mom, wife, and just woman in general who doesn't know HOW THE HECK these moms, wives, and women in general are getting things done? Seriously now. I think if you came to my house, you'd be in utter shock at the mess because (honest to God truth here) your home could NEVER POSSIBLY look that way. Seriously, that's how I feel most of the time. I almost always have dirty dishes in my sink, and my laundry is usually done, but it's rarely all folded, hung up, or put away, and as far as the house goes - well, I have a two year old who is constantly into things, plus two dogs...AND a husband. That husband happens to be a mechanic who is usually working on something dirty, even after he is home from work.

I have more dust bunnies than I can count, dirt, grass, dog hair, dirty dishes, dirty clothes, clean clothes piled in baskets, bills piled on the counter, coupons cut and scattered on the kitchen table, blocks all over the living room floor, and unfinished projects hiding everywhere in my home. It seems like the one thing that I'm really lacking is time to take care of it all. How the heck do they do it? Can someone lend me a clue here because let's get real, I can't be the only one out there whose home does not look immaculate all of the time!


  1. I'm totally with you! My house is never really 'spotless' except for the occasional deep-cleaning before we have family in town! Fortunately, I work from home so often will just take breaks and do the dishes or vacuum the carpet. Sometimes when I see 'perfect' interiors, it kinda even makes me sad. It doesn't look 'lived in' or 'homey' or inviting. Don't worry about those dust bunnies my friend!!

  2. They are blogging Stepford Wives.

    1. Haha, blogging Stepford Wives - I love it :)

  3. Agreed, I often have this thought as well! Come on over to my messy house Jenn!!


You don't know just how lovely you are...thank you.
