Our weekends always involve a family walk to the park. It used to be the time I'd send them all off so I could clean but thankfully I've come to my senses.
I am definitely one to get too hung up on making sure the house is clean, a little mess never killed anyone but not spending quality time with my family definitely might! So I'm trying to ignore the mess and enjoy the limited time I have with them all. Especially Andreas seeing as he works full time, I'm reclaiming our weekends and forcing myself to clean during the week (always easier said than done).
These past few days have been devoted to deeper cleaning and it was nice to spend a lazy Sunday listening to Triple J's Hottest 100 (of the past 20 years) and purging all my stuff. I still haven't physically gotten rid of it – I'm going to donate it all but part of me is holding back because I know I could probably get a bit of cash if I threw a garage sale (but those things are horrible and hard work). I keep apologising to Andreas because the house looks disgusting but if you open the fridge or any of our kitchen cupboards they sparkle. Hidden cleaning is a lot less rewarding!
At present we are currently debating buying a new dyson vacuum or a robot vacuum so, if anyone has any opinions on this please speak up! Both of them are a significant amount of money but the latter would definitely help my sanity seeing as I loathe vacuuming and put it off as long as possible – which around these parts isn't very long unfortunately! But I'm just trying to come up with ways to make sure I stop getting so obsessed with a clean house and start focusing more on everything else. It turns me into a cranky wife and mother and I definitely don't want Logan growing up with me like that! On the plus side though cleaning (when I finally do it) makes me feel like I've accomplished something and I'm definitely happier afterwards.
Ok, so I'm officially a housewife in need of an afternoon glass of wine haha tune in next week for a post on how to cook the ultimate roast and keep your man happy (jokes…I hope!).
