Cleanliness is next to Godliness???

Have I ever told you how much I hate to clean my house? I hate it more than anything in this world. You see, I live in a house with two boys who always have their friends over playing and it always seems to make my house smell like a college dorm!

So I am constantly cleaning.

I’m the kind of person that likes order and cleanliness. My house is never…and I mean never 5 minutes away from being picked up and presentable to let’s say the Queen of England. That’s just who I am and how I roll. I enjoy a clean house.

Unfortunately, the time that I usually put into cleaning my house has been used up trying to keep caught up with work. You see, last week the warehouse that houses our curriculum caught on fire and we lost EVERYTHING during the first week of our four month long busy season. Needless to say there has been a lot of additional stress and additional hours put in dealing with the insurance company, fire Chief, printing companies and students…not to mention the countless hours of editing (that I should have had done weeks ago) in preparation for reprinting all of our books.

As you can imagine, I am under a TON of stress.

And when I’m stressed in one area of my life, I tend to slack in others.

And the area that is lacking now is my house, and I’m torn. I don’t like cleaning, but I also don’t like living in squalor, so this, you can imagine, presents an internal conflict of interest that at times I find very tear-provoking.

I know I mentioned in one of my numerous birthday posts last year that if I had one of these...

...then I would never ever complain about cleaning again.

But I have one of these and realize now that what I really meant to say was, if I had one of these...

...then I promise I would never ever complain about cleaning again.

So please, I beg you House cleaning God’s, send one of these hot boys that like to clean over to give me a little inspiration! If not send someone to buy me drinks…lots of drinks!

Or better yet, just send me him...

...I think he could inspire me to do anything!

Thank you in advance!


  1. That's hilarious! Did you see that your boy was voted Sexiest Man of the Year by People Magazine?

  2. Jenny...I did see that about my boy. I like to think that my numerous blogs about him and his beauty were the kicker to his nomination! I can't wait to buy numerous copies for my viewing pleasure!

  3. I'm not a fan of cleaning either, but there is nothing better than a beautifully clean house. After everything is good and clean, I light a few candles, buy myself some flowers... I am never happier. Man or no man. So I blast some music or listen to the Food Network and clean my ass off. After a few hours, I know I'll feel better. Someone told me that a messy bed is a messy head. It really stuck with me, and I do feel like I have a clearer head when my environment is clean.
    BUT ... I could take any of these men....hmmmm.
