Have I told you....

Welcome Wednesday.
Have I told you...
Today I have writer's block, well kind of. I have so many things that I want to write about but not sure how to word it or where to start.
I recently told my daughter(she gives me tips and ideas) that I think my brain should be on an episode of Hoarders!! LOL, but seriously it is one big cluttered mess!
By the way, Hoarders is one of my favorite shows and I'm sure sooner or later I'll do a whole post about this fascinating topic.
Anyway, my house is starting to remind me of this show, not that I am a compulsive shopper/buyer or that I don't throw things away. Ask anyone in my house, if it lays out of place for more than a day or two, it's trash!! Now I believe I am somewhere inbtween a neat freak and a procrastinator. I have all the ideas and intentions of a clean, livible home with charm and very personal.
I have a husband, kids, and pets. My goal is nothing Martha Stewart would be proud of. I've always said I want my house to be lived in, not looking like a museum where you have to walk around looking, no touching! If you like the picture sitting on my bookcase, pick it up and have a closer look. I try to do my daily maintenance of the house. Laundry, dishes, make beds, wipe counters, tables, sink tops. Put all the books, movies and such away. maybe some windows or dusting(not everyday).
On the other hand, I of course do have my pet peeves about some things around my domain!
Do not leave your wet, dirty, wadded up clothes in the bathroom floor. We have a hamper, use it!
Do not leave the mayonaise knife laying on the counter for me to find "stuck" to said counter in the morning where the mayonaise has now dried up!
If the litter box needs changed, Change it!! It's not even my cat!
If it's yours, put it back. I don't care who had it last!
Please push in the dresser drawers. To me it just looks so sloppy seeing half closed drawers with or without some article of clothing hanging out of it.
If you use the ashtray, please empty it!! This means before it has a whole pack of butts piled up in it! Yuck!
Ok, OK. I'm done ranting! he he!!
Just had to get that out of my system!
So you'll see if you read closely I'm really not the one with the problem, it must be these goofballs I live with!!
No denial issues here either!

Haha! I too am somewhere between neat freak and major procrastinator. I really want my house to be neat and tidy all the time, but that is simply not the reality I live in with a toddler. No Martha Stewart house here either. But I wouldn't trade it for the world!

My husband loves that show too. :) It scares me to watch because he can be just like that!
