I Need a Wife Just Like Me


I definitely Did Not learn my cleaning habits from my mother.

Confession #1: It’s not unusual for me to vacuum the bathroom.

Is this weird?

You see, my bathroom is on the third floor between two carpeted bedrooms. It just makes sense for me to vacuum the bathroom tile while passing through between the bedrooms.

Confession #2: I also vacuum the ceiling fan. It doesn’t work very well. The mouth of the vacuum kind of flops over and when I try to suck off the dust it just keeps pushing the fan around, so it doesn’t really do much, but I figure something is better than nothing.

Confession #3: (If you haven’t already drawn this conclusion, I’m gonna spell it out for you.)

I’m not much of a cleaner.

I’d much rather be working in ways that earn me some cash. I often see blog posts come across my Facebook feed that discuss things like Daily Cleaning routines, “15 Minutes to a Cleaner House”, Make your bed every day,… Honestly, I’m not even sure why I “like” these pages.

Most of the time, just keeping my children alive is the best I can do.

  1. You don’t make your bed everyday? Really? Wow. I make it before i shower. And never go to the kitchen naked of make-up. Maybe I should have a blog too.


  2. I’m the opposite. Not as I’m OCD or anything but I clean the house fully twice a week, Hoover the lounge every day and love the smell of bleach in the bathroom and kitchen.


  3. You just described EXACTLY the kind of wife I need. 😉

    Honestly, I wish I were that way. I would work better if I worked from a schedule, but I don’t. I tend to flitter here and there and get things done. The cleaning stuff – there’s just no end to it… sigh.


  4. […] They’ve made movies about this, and I remember a whole bunch of stuff about sheep or goats in the news several years ago, but the fact is, some days I need another me (this seems to be a theme I return to once a month or so…link here) […]
