    Once upon a time way back before July, I could clean my whole house vacuum, dust, sweep, mop, clean toilets, tub all within about a two hour time period. Doing laundry in between. I did deep cleaning every Sunday for the work week so I had little to do through out the week. I even cooked a couple of meals for the week, so I would not have to cook every night after work. In July I found this site, my two hours has turned into most of the day now on Sundays. And I am proud of it!!

    @KMARINO I know you are a clean freak too, do you ever feel almost anxious when you are gone for the weekend so you have to clean during the week or even worse let it go until the next weekend I go crazy if my house doesn't get cleaned every week! I was gone this weekend so its been a week and half since I've cleaned and I can't handle it, after an 8 hour work I'm going straight home and dedicating my evening to at least getting the bathrooms done!

    Well, "The Groundhog Day Blizzard" is officially in cleanup mode around here. They are saying we got 15 inches of new snow last night with 40 mph sustained wind for over six hours last night. I did stay home from work, and should feel guilty that I haven't done much of anything all day while Bruce went out and cleaned up the mess. Most of our yard has about three + feet of snow cover. And some deeper drifts beyond that. Bruce took some pictures while he was out there. I'll work on posting them in another post.

    @TessaAndSamson, I have mentioned before I am a little OCD, I get very nervous and I can't even sleep or relax at night, I was raised this way, my mother made me BLEACH/MOP her two car garage floor once a month she was a bit obsessive as well.

    I used to get on my kids nerves and I know I get on Joe's, he has learned to stay out of my way, I can not even relax if there is a fork in the sink and not in the dishwasher when I go to bed. Usually if I go away for the weekend I will take off Monday so I can stay home and clean. And WHY do you ask that I am in therapy? besides over my son. I was off work today and cleaned out my walk in closet and lifted all the cushions on the couch, chairs and loveseat to sweep under. And was on my hands and knees doing baseboards. Somehow and somedays I feel that is the ONLY control I have. I believe less is more so I don't even have a bunch of knick-knacks, no collections, god as I am typing all this I KNOW I am a quack!!! having Vegas is a 24 hour job with the drool/slobber and hair. But I would not have it any other way!!

    @KMARINO Yep I'm about the same way. And like you I was raised that way except my mom didn't make us do anything that crazy! I NEVER let dishes sit in the sink, EVER! And when I say clean the house once a week I, like you, mean the deep cleaning. I do random cleaning everyday. Like I have a HUGE pet peeve with hair on the floor (pet or mine) so I vaccum my downstairs wood floor everyday, clean up dishes, wipe off the kitchen counters everyday, wipe the water up around the dog water bowl. To me its normal, maybe we are both a little nutty then LOL Luckily my mother-in-law is a really clean person so Dave grew up with it so I don't drive him too crazy. I get stuck in this thing where I don't trust Dave to take over any cleaning responsibilites except vaccuming the carpet upstairs because I don't feel like he'll do the other stuff right and my mother-in-law tells I have to let that go when I have kids so they learn responsibility, but if I need to redo their work later just don't let them see me LOL One thing I'll say I will NEVER get a 2 story house again! We bought a 2 story townhouse in May 2009, I had never lived in a 2 story and had no idea what a pain it is on cleaning day! It's going to be the death of me and my poor back!

    Snow Pics...the fence is 3' and covered all along the South Side of the yard. The North side has a huge pine tree, so less actual snow cover there.



    Bruce took the pics after he'd done the majority of the cleanup.

    No snow here, of course, but DANG!! it is COLD! It's supposed to be in the 20's overnight. We were out earlier this evening and it was 33 and windy. We've gotten too spoiled living down here. We were FREEZING when we got home!!
