I recently changed my mind, though. I spent some time in a home that was clean. Very clean. One might even say super clean. And I realized my house is never going to be that clean. Never, ever. Because while a clean house is a priority for me, a very, even super, clean home is not. I am not a stellar cleaner by nature or by nurture, and I'm all about clean enough over here. Let's get this house clean enough, and then let's go read a book in the hammock. Or hang out with the chickens. Or jump on the trampoline (do you think Hubby will let me keep the trampoline when the kids are gone? Hmmm). Seriously. I have better things to do than to chase down every last crumb the second it hits the floor. Or, at least, I have things that are way more fun to do.
I was kind of disappointed when I realized that my home will never be that clean. I mean, all these years, I've been thinking it would be. Now, I know it will not. In a way, though, it's good that I found out now so I can adjust my expectations. Now I won't have to be severely disappointed later on.
I found this sign on Etsy. I think it sums me up nicely.
