A Plea for Help!

I needed to get your attention, did it work??:) Really, I do need your help though:)

I have a good friend who is struggling with the overwhelming feeling (that we all know) about housework. She got me thinking.

Take two minutes for me, grab your camera, take it around your house and take three pictures of the reality of your home (good, bad, or ugly!) Don't straighten a thing, just take three pictures and post them on your blog. Put the link to this post on your blog and make a comment on this post to let me know you joined in the fun.

My point in this activity is to accomplish one of two things, one: I will either prove to all of you that I am the failure when it comes to keeping my house clean. Or, two: I will prove that we are all striving for the same goal and none of us are perfect. We are all taking one day at a time, doing the Dang Best we can at THAT MOMENT. As Bob says on the movie What About Bob, "Baby Steps to the bathroom, Baby Steps to the dishes, Baby Steps to the vacuum...;)"

Join me in this moment of unveiling:)

this is the best idea ever! I think it might be good for my hubby to see that not everyone else out there is perfect. I don't know if I dare show any pics of my house though, I am too ashamed!

Jamie, it won't work as well if you don't take pics! If you REALLY are too ashamed (which you shouldn't be) then send me a few and I'll post them on my blog.

My home is in a constant state of mess and clean. I work at it all day long and when I finish the last thing, it starts all over again. The kids are the biggest problems. If you look around, the mess on the floor is toys and clothes they stripped off. The kitchen is usually messy with cereal, milk rings, and jelly jars left out. The pile of laundry is ever present, even when I do four loads a day. I can't say there is a time that I can take a picture and not have cleaned right before. I'm always working on cleaning here and there. It never ends, and when I do break to do other projects, I do double cleaning later.

ha ha, that LC 3rd Ward RS is me. I didn't switch accounts over. Luckily there is no more LC 3rs Ward as we were split and renamed two weeks ago.

It's comforting to know I'm not the only one fighting this constant battle!

I totally posted the grossest picture ever on my blog of my super dirty floors! I'm so embarrassed but hey, we are all human & no one is perfect, right?! It was kind of liberating! LOL!

AWESOME! It's good to know many of us are in the same season of life. Just Doin'The Best We Can!

It's nice to know I'm not the only one. The kids will grow all too quickly. I've joined in the fun with pics on my blog. Thanks for this idea.
