Well right now the Ontario government is telling me not to clean because it uses energy so I'm not! I think everyone has their own cleaning style–I can't stand dirty counters, clutter (unless I've "arranged" it thus making it a "collection"!)–basically I like clean and tidy surfaces but I can live with only cleaning my fridge when my mother-in-law is coming once a year, ditto the freezer. I HATE dusting but I like vaccuuming, and I'll sweep because if I don't it's revolting but I can't stand mopping. Hmmm, thank god for cleaning ladies.
I also have one child who is super clean with his person not his room and one who could care less. Lesser than less really. Bathtime is a HUGE struggle. Sitting in the water is great but actually washing? We have to make it a game, a bribe, a threat. Fun stuff!
Anyway, enough about me, suffice it to say, it is not me in this illustration although I do have a swiffer...
