A Clean House Is a Sign of a Wasted Life

Some say a clean house defines a woman and even a relationship which is nonsense, yet it takes time that could be spent more productively hence the use of servants by the more affluent and now some robots.

Remember ... a layer of dust protects the Wood beneath it, yet dust, dirt and grime are breeding grounds for pathogens that can toughen us up or kill us - the choice is ours.

'A house becomes a home when you can write 'I love you' on the furniture.’

I used to spend at least 8 hours every weekend making sure things were just perfect - 'in case someone came over'. Finally I realized one day that no-one came over; they were all out living life and having fun!

NOW, when people visit, I don't have to explain the 'condition' of my home. They are more interested in hearing about the things I've been doing while I was away living life and having fun. If you haven't figured this out yet, read this.

Life is short. Enjoy it!

Dust if you must........
But wouldn't it be better to paint a picture or write a letter, bake cookies or a cake and lick the spoon or plant a seed, ponder the difference between want and need?
Dust if you must, but there's not much time. .....
With wine to drink, rivers to swim and mountains to climb, music to hear and books to read, friends to cherish and life to lead.
Dust if you must,
But the world's out there with the sun in your eyes, the wind in your hair, a flutter of snow, a shower of rain. This day will not come around, again.
Dust if you must,
but bear in mind, old age will come and it's not kind.... And when you go - and go you must - you, yourself will make more dust!
It's not what you gather, but what you scatter that tells what kind of life you have lived.
Finally remember for ever!!
Those who spot dust in your house surely have dust in their mind, house is not any hospital or 5star hotel to be spic & span, so,,,,,enjoy life😀 & stop wasting your life on lifeless things.

Cleaning your house while your kids are still growing is like shoveling the walk before it stops snowing

There is no daily chore so trivial that it cannot be made important by skipping it two days running.

One afternoon a man came home from work to find total mayhem in his house. His three children were outside, still in their pyjamas, playing in the mud, with empty food boxes and wrappers strewn all around the front yard. The door of his wife's car was open, as was the front door to the house.

Proceeding into the entry, he found an even bigger mess. A lamp had been knocked over, and the throw rug was wadded against one wall. In the front room the TV was loudly blaring a cartoon channel, and the family room was strewn with toys and various items of clothing. In the kitchen, dishes filled the sink, breakfast food was spilled on the counter, dog food was spilled on the floor, a broken glass lay under the table, and a small pile of sand was spread by the back door.

He quickly headed up the stairs, stepping over toys and more piles of clothes, looking for his wife. He was worried she may be ill, or that something serious had happened. He found her lounging in the bedroom, still curled in the bed in her pyjamas, reading a novel.

She looked up at him, smiled, and asked how his day went.

He looked at her bewildered and asked, "What happened here today?"

She again smiled and answered, "You know every day when you come home from work and ask me what in the world I did today?"

"Yes" was his incredulous reply.

She answered, "Well, today I didn't do it."

What's a man's idea of helping with the housework?
Lifting his legs so you can vacuum.

    Teach your kids that housework is everyone’s responsibility and not something to do just because they get something in return, like pocket money. That said, an occasional reward such as an hour later weekend bedtime for school kids, more TV time, or a treat for finishing chores, are great motivators.

    Guys too can handle household chores and if not better, they may be as good at it as women. However, some may not be interested to do it or some are bound with the idea that it’s a ‘woman’s job’.

    Great article. I am experiencing many of these issues as well.. But I love a clean house and usually while my probable eventual husband who I live with is playing sport on Saturday mornings, I love to turn the music up and get stuck in. Well, I don’t always bother to dress properly and on several occasions I’ve answered the door when almost naked. Once when I was wearing an old miniskirt and nothing else I opened the door to some Jehovah’s Witnesses. Their chins almost dropped the doorstep before they fled. Another time I was wearing a T-shirt with no knickers and a woman came by with her four-year-old child. He was low enough to see I wasn’t wearing knickers but he turned to his mum and asked “mummy, why does the lady have nails in her pussy?” It took me a moment before I realised he was talking about my clitoral studs. She told him it was my secret and we laughed but it wasn’t quite so pleasant another time when some salesman tried to force entry. Thankfully the neighbours are nice and don’t object to seeing me naked in the backyard.

    great stuff so Smith goes to see his supervisor. “Boss,” he says, “we’re doing some heavy house-cleaning at home tomorrow, and my wife needs me to help with the attic and the garage, moving and hauling stuff.”

    “We’re short-handed, Smith,” the boss says. “I can’t give you the day off.”

    “Thanks, boss,” says Smith. “I knew I could count on you!”

    I like looking through a post that can make men and women think, many thanks for allowing me to comment! I suggest housework is best done alone of when someone else is as into it as you with the music up and a glass of wine. When the wine is felt, the housework is done.
