Quest for organization

I've noticed with this baby and 4 kids I'm having a harder time keeping my house cleaned. I don't know if its the 4 kids or what but it seems like it shouldn't be this bad. My kids have have to do some adjusting having a new baby in the house and also my teenager that has helped me so much before has decided friends are more fun. Who new?? Just kidding I was the same way.

In my "quest" to become more organized I have a question. Is it better to have one surface area clean than no surface area?

What I mean is I'll ask my "friends are funner to be around than you mom" teenager to clean off the table for me. He moves all of the stuff to my hutch. So the table is clean but the hutch has more stuff on it.

In the "real world" I would love to have the hutch and the counter and the table cleared of everything. It will happen one of these days again. I know it!! I would love for him to find a home for the stuff on the table, which he is also a culprit of putting them there. He'll sweep the floor and toys will be on the floor so on the table they go. I wish he would put them away. I've asked and asked now I'll I ask for is a clean surface area.

No CLUTTER is coming my way soon!!!


  1. Oh, I can't wait for the teenage years... oh, wait, nevermind I CAN! :) I still remember what I was like as a teen... I hope my boys stay little a lot longer.

    Good luck! Visiting from SITS

  2. One of my friends has a sign on her wall when you first come in the door: "It was clean yesterday. Come back then." I have two little ones and I try to tell myself the same thing: One day it's gonna be clean, in the meantime try and enjoy our life moments together. Don't stress, it's get there.

  3. Ha! I knew I had been here before! Man, I feel like a real idiot. Too much blogging today, maybe I should go take a nap... hahaha
