Finding the motivation.

I can't seem to gain the motivation I need to clean up this dang place! It is such a mess in here and I hate it. We were doing really well for a while. David was actually loading/unloading the dishwasher on a regular basis and taking the trash out every morning on his way to work. Somewhere along the line, both of them came to a halt. When they stopped, I also stopped. I was picking up everything every day, vacuuming daily, laundry every 3 days or so. Now, I haven't vacuumed in 4 or 5 days, there is stuff (mostly toys and clothes) everywhere and the laundry hasn't been touch in about a week and a half. I never have the energy to do my cleaning during the day. I get my cleaning bug around 5 or 6 pm. Well, lately, I have been at work during that time so obviously, things aren't getting done. Maybe since tomorrow is my day off I might be able to muster up the energy to clean. Maybe, just maybe...

Oh sweetheart....... I wish I was there to help out. Dave needs to get back to doing what he was doing. Have you talked to him to find out why he stopped. Like I said, if you need me there to help, just let me know. My weekends off are April 12, 26 or May 10, 24... just let me know if you want me there to help.. you know I don't mind.... I love you...

I have the same issue. The husband and I set out a chore schedule a while ago (cause we are just that fun) and it worked...for a while...now not so much. I still do my stuff, his have fallen by the wayside. Time for another chore discussion I think.

I know the feeling! I always take advantage of those windows of time when I actually have the energy to clean. Steve, to his credit, is pulling more than his share of weight these days, and I love him for it ... but the house always seems like it's falling behind. Don't worry if things slide a little right now. You have so much on your plate.
