I'm Messy

Okay, now I need to decide how honest I should be on here.....  I want to totally put it all out there but I am afraid.  What if no one is as bad as I am?  That would be a horrible discovery.  I am willing to bet that I'm not alone though.  The comments you all have shared have been wonderful to read (in a "I'm not the only one" way).

I clean in weird ways at weird times.  I'll give you a few examples...Last night at 9pm I went to take out the trash.  Not weird at all, right?  Right, except I ended up cleaning half the garage while I was out there.  Not planned, just started picking up and organizing until my family came looking for me.  The other day I went to do the dishes and ended up taking the stove apart to clean the drip pans under the burners.  They are clean, the kitchen is not.  In fact, we had to eat cereal out of tupperware this morning. 

You think I'm kidding just look at this.

Now in my defense the dishes on the right are clean and waiting to be put away.  The rest definitely need attention though.  I feel as if I am surrounded by dishes, laundry and paper all the time.  Paper?  Yes, and not the good kind of paper.  The amount of paper that comes into my home every day is obscene.  Good thing we recycle, right?

My "desk"
(I use the term loosely because I really don't know when I last sat at it and used it as such)

There you go, I'm putting it out there.
I am messy.
I don't want to be.
I don't like to be.
I am working on it.

Sorry the pictures are really bad, I took them with my phone.


  1. You are hilarious! I know this isn't funny but I love that you posted the mess! It's like you are coming out of the closet. I think it would be hard to feel motivated to keep a house clean with 4 kids, a husband and 2 dogs even if you weren't depressed. At least you are owning it. Dang you are awesome and I adore you :)

  2. I thank my lucky stars on a daily basis that we are in the Philippines and maids are cheap here, because my house pre-Philippines was very similar! Hating housework is one of my favorite hobbies.
