This is a completely atypical post for me as it has nothing whatsoever to do with paper, stamping, cards, scrapbooks or Etsy. I just saw this pinned on Pinterest and I could swear I heard angels singing as if the hand of God came down and pointed at me.
I am a (how shall I say this?) "laid-back" housekeeper. I don't require completely pristine surroundings but I would prefer to sit in my family room without having to scootch piles of laundry over or go into the kitchen to make dinner without recoiling at puddles of God-only-knows-what solidifying on my counter. With three very capable children and an equally capable husband it seems to me that my house should remain in a reasonable respectable state on a regular basis as we all happily whistle while we work. But it doesn't. Not by a long shot. I go on housecleaning strike occasionally just to see if anybody notices that clothes or dished don't get washed. Sweeping? Ha! I don't want to tell you how long dishes sat in the kitchen before I threw my hands up in despair and collapsed in a heap on the (crumb-littered) floor as the reality of my situation struck me. It wasn't pretty, people.
