Is it time for spring cleaning, already?
My house is never completely "up-to-snuff." However, I try. (Nevermind the fact that I'm blogging right now rather than folding laundry.) The hubbie is much more of a neat-freak than I am so he does clean up around the house. (We actually make a decent pair most of the time as I'm more worried about actual dirt and grime and he is more flustered by clutter. My stack of 14 different pieces of paper, kid's spelling lists and a grocery list doesn't bother me.)
Over the last couple of weeks however, I've had one child home sick, then another, then we lathered, rinsed and repeated. I do find that I stop to scrub a sink, Lysol the couch and throw day-old kitchen towels in the laundry much more often this week. I've assumed it is just because I am TIRED of the infections running rampant through my home.
I have run across multiple blog posts this week from frustrated moms who feel that they can't keep up with their house this week, however. Is this part of a larger trend? Is this a week for people across the nation to feel overpowered by housework? Is it simply that the time for spring cleaning has arrived?
