It's harder for us when DH is home because we're off routine. And Saturday/Sunday there is rarely a cleaning thread, which I use a lot because I like the company.

Default Re: Messy days

I get the place clean for my brother coming on a Friday, it's usually pretty nice by then. Then saturday it falls apart BIG TIME. Monday I start picking it up and get it okish, but it falls apart again the rest of the week. Big clean Friday and we're back on the cycle. It frustrates me.

I get all lazy when DH is around, too. Unfortunately, he has been working less lately than he ever has so . . . yeah, my house isn't looking so great.

I don't have designated "messy days" (except maybe Sat and Sun) but I do have this weird cycle of several days where I'm really motivated, then several when I just don't care, then repeat.

Mine falls apart on Saturdays, when I'm at work and DH is home with kiddos. Then Sundays get worse, because we either lay around or rush to some family gathering.

I don't clean on Saturdays because it's the Sabbath. So Sunday is my catch up day and it's usually not completely clean until Monday morning. Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday it's clean, but by Thursday I'm losing motivation and I know I'll be doing a big pre-Sabbath clean on Friday, so I slack off until Friday afternoon.

Looks like my house will be messy all week. I'll be lucky to do a load of laundry. I won't be home most of the week.

I oftentimes have to work on weekends, writing, and dh hangs out with dd, which means they destroy the house and do no housework.
