Our place gets worse after each week! Haha! We picked stuff up on Friday, but shoved most of it upstairs out of the view of our friends who came over to help with more DIY stuff! Can’t wait for after the wedding to deep clean everything 😛

FI walked in the house the other day from work and goes “WOW! this place is a disaster!” to which I reminded him that we have a 10 month old, we’re moving at the end of the month, I start school next week, and we’re planning a wedding. Needless to say, our house will pretty much always be a disaster.

I’ve been slowly reclaiming a disaster of a house the past few weeks. Stupid extended spring cleaning!!! 

Almost there!

Sometimes it is totally worth hiring a cleaner/maid, just for one day. Just to restore something resembling sanity to an insane world!

That’s how I’m living right now! We moved into our house 3 months ago. Everywhere you turn is a project and a pile of tools. Our third bedroom is what we refer to as “the bad room” the room where things with no place yet or no time to put away go- I hate looking in that room it’s overwhelming. 

Between ongoing projects, appointments with all my vendors since my wedding is 7 weeks away+ trying to get other last details planned, my stepduaghter who I have full custody of, I gave up on trying my best to keep a clean house!! I do our laundry on an as needed basis, and the dishwasher is my best friend even if its just to hide half of the dirty dishes. Oh its madness over here, can’t wait until Oct 7th, the day after the wedding. One less thing.

Exactly what you said (guest room, dining table, piles of clean and dirty laundry, and dishes in the sink) is what is going on at our house. I don’t even have time to cook or wash my car – so half the time we are eating soup (which is great for the wedding diet) and my car is no longer white, but a dull gray color.  Glad to know I am not alone!!

Between projects which seem to be taking up increasingly more space, and gifts arriving we feel like we to move to fit it all. I have noticed I’m behind on all my domestic stuff and my closet is a sight for sore eyes. So is this the excuse? 🙂 Finally a reason!

@Firinne:  You poor thing. I have a pathological fear of mess/clutter and was very careful about not letting things get out of control before the wedding. In fact I was up until 3am the night before our wedding cleaning our house as I knew it would upset me to come back to a messy house. I know some people who use a cleaning app on their iPhone which helps alot. Alot of the tasks you need to do only take 10 minutes or so and you will feel so much better once you slowly start to pick some of them off the list. 10 minutes is not much time at all. You can do it!!!! 

Good luck!

@Firinne:  Gahhh nightmare!!! I am the opposite, I can’t sleep until things are straight in the house. It drives my husband MAD! The other night I came in wasted from a night club and vacumed the spare room and gave the kitchen a deep clean at 4am because I knew I wouldn’t be able to sleep knowing it was messy. He nearly murdered me!!! Embarassed
