It never ends

Since the girls have been sick (and because we are trying really hard to be fiscally responsible) we have been staying home A LOT. Up until recently we left the house nearly every day. After our Disney trip in January we started only leaving the house for activities (and lunch once a week with Gramma). It was an adjustment, but we were getting pretty used to it. We still were out and about for an hour or two most days. Last week, however, we were at home almost exclusively. Since it was spring break all of our usual activities were cancelled, and we would have missed them anyway with the girls being sick.

All this leads me to my title... THE HOUSEWORK NEVER ENDS! I am actually a person who enjoys cleaning to a certain point. Well actually I enjoy a clean space and am willing to do what it takes to get it clean. The problem with this is that when you are home all the time things just keep getting dirty. I can't clean the house in the morning and think it will still be clean by afternoon. So I clean in the morning, I clean at rest time, and I am still rushing around at dinner time to clean. The biggest problem is that I haven't laid the law down with Bear. She makes messes everywhere, and then I have to choose to battle with her or clean them up myself. I know I should have the battle, but cleaning it up is easier. BAD MOMMY...
