I think it's true that we all have a philosophy when it comes to the cleanliness of our homes. Some of us are a bit OCD (for lack of a better word), and the house must be immaculate at all times. Other's actually feel more comfortable with a little mess around. It makes us feel like we're "home." Do you know what I mean?
I think I'm somewhere in between. Some days, I just don't care what the house looks like, I will step over the same pile of toys 47 times a day and never think twice about putting them away. If they really start to get in the way, a simple nudge out of the walking path will suffice. But other days, even the smallest amount of clutter makes me feel like a crazy person. Must. Put. It. All. Away. Right. Now! I literally cannot function if I see a single toy out, or a crumb on the kitchen floor. You never know what you're going to get with me, when it comes to cleaning. Just ask my Husband.
One thing I'm consistent about, though, is my cleaning "personality." It's true, we all have one. I recently took the Bona Keep It Clean Personality Quiz, and got the result of "Multitasker." Sounds about right to me. Here's what it had to say about me:
"Your cleaning personality is...Pretty accurate, I think. Wouldn't that be nice if I had an extra set of arms?? But here's the truth, I don't despise cleaning. I really don't. Well, okay I take that back, I despise doing dishes. The literal worst thing is doing dishes, as far as cleaning goes. A close second is laundry. But everything else? Cleaning the bathrooms, dusting, vacuuming, sweeping, mopping... no problem.
Some days feel like a blur with all of the stuff you manage to fit in. Sports, clubs, work and meetings fill your days, meaning cleaning is just another item on your "To Do" list. An extra set of arms would help, but until they start making blouses with four sleeves, fitting cleaning in to your busy schedule will have to do."
Speaking of mopping, I'll be the first to say that I don't generally mop a ton. I tend to do a quick sweep, and then call it good. But I will say, that going the extra distance and taking the mop out, is so much more satisfying.
