I'm almost too jealous of your trip to respond ... but I will tell you that MY refrigerator magnet says "A clean house is a sign of a wasted life." However, since we stopped having house cleaners when my husband lost his job (briefly) last spring, he fully believes that having the whole family clean the house every other weekend (or, in truth, every three weeks) is character building for the kids. I wholeheartedly agree - it's great that my kids have learned how to scrub toilets and bathtubs, dust and vacuum and sweep. Even make their beds once in a while. However, as I have told him, my character is already fully formed, thank you very much, and I would much rather spend fun time with my family (or at least activity time) on the weekends, but so far, no budging. Maybe as my birthday present ...


I love a clean house. I just don't want to be the one to clean it!


I am a work from home mom but staying home doesn't mean you have time to do housing keep stuff.
