    I also checked a whole bunch.  Oy!  Though, I don’t do dishes. I refuse.  Luckily, Darling Husband does them and doesn’t mind.

    I rarely dust, I vacuum once, maybe twice a month when it gets so bad I can’t stand it anymore. I have never washed the windows in over three years of living in my house. I don’t separate laundry and my clean laundry doesn’t get put away until it’s time to do more laundry and I need the basket, then I’ll put away the six or so things left in there. But I don’t fold them.

    Oh dear….. This is like a survey to see how messed up I am. XD The answer is: Very.

    I’m an utter disaster and I’m not trying to change a thing. If my hubby wanted someone to clean our house, he would have married Merry Maid. Thankfully for his peace of mind, he’s fine with cleaning the things he wants clean.

    I checked a few. I don’t wash windows, but I never have unless they are really bad. I also don’t seperate my lights and darks when washing clothes, but hey, that’s what cold wash is for. I also don’t really put them up or fold them. I will lay them out, hang up some stuff and put things like undies and socks in a drawer, but most everything gets laid out on a bench in my bedroom. I also tend to forget about dishes left in other rooms. I found 5 cups in the bedroom the other day. As far as dishes, I hate doing them if FH has put them in the sink. He always runs water in everything and then it just sits there and gets nasty. So when that happens, he’s the one that has to load them into the dishwasher. I have no problem taking them out though. 

    I’m just not good at cleaning over all.

    I just read this list to my Darling Husband… we both had a good laugh. I checked off almost all of these things… I put the dishes in the strainer though not in the cabinet. =D

    I checked off 9 of these. Bahahaha, I am the worst. My worst offenses are that I don’t separate laundry and throw it all in the washer/dryer no matter what the tags say and I pretty much only clean when people are coming over. Sealed

    Yup, we pretty much clean only when people come over.  Luckily, neither Darling Husband or I are clean-freaks, but on the other hand we each have different “issues”, so that works against us.  Meaning, when I lived alone in my own house, all my friends would tell me how “clean” it was all the time, but that’s just because I’m not big into clutter, so it looked clean.  But I didn’t actually “clean” it that often.

    Darling Husband is the opposite.  He’ll clean more often, but you can’t tell, because he’ll immediately come home and clutter everything up afterward…coat on the kitchen table, shoes in the front hall, mail dumped on the dining room table, work stuff strewn all over the couch and ottoman, and my “favorite”…..dryer sheets ALL OVER THE HOUSE.  I don’t know how, but he somehow gets used dryer sheets everywhere.  Like…they stick to his feet and he just leaves them wherever they fall off?  I don’t have a clue, but they end up in the weirdest places.

    I loathe cleaning. Oddly, the easiest two rooms for me are the kitchen and bathroom. I HATE laundry.

    I checked I don’ts on about half of those.  But my house is semi-clean.  DH takes care of laundry, dishes, cooking, trash, recycling, and making the bed.  The only thing I have to remind him of is cleaning the car and vacuuming.

    I tend to forget tupperware at work and I rarely wash the windows. I am on maternity leave now and I have to say….the house is spotless. I just can’t relax….. I am going nuts!
