My House is a Sty but I Don’t Care

Maybe I should care about the sorry state of my house a little bit more. We’ve been here for a little over 2 months and have yet to actually move it. Amidst renovations that are never ending and never progressing all at the same time, half our possessions in the garage or basement in boxes and random piles and various supplies stored in every possible square foot, it’s true…my house is a sty. There’s stuff I could do to fix it (clean up Fit Boy’s toys, do the dishes, dust more than once every 8 weeks) but I don’t. I know I should care more…but I don’t.


I’d miss moments like this

…and this

…and this.

So next time you come visit Chez Fit Mom and you’re tripping over toys, being bombarded with reno supplies and chased by dust bunnies, just know that a lot of fun and quality time was spent doing other things. Things that I will treasure forever.

I’ll clean my house…another day.

  1. Life’s too short for housework – however, you can accomplish quite a lot in short 15 minute bursts of activity and once you establish a routine a quick one hour will keep the dust bunnies in check (I still have a few!).

    Take a look at – she’s a marvel and has a great way of getting on top of those household routines with minimal effort.

  2. Could not have said it better myself! I have stopped worrying about the dust bunnies or how many times in one day that I step on buzz lightyears head or find glitter in my clean laundry because at the end of the day my life would be a lot less colorful without these three kidlets in my life!

    Enjoy your moments! Loved your captured moments!

  3. I don’t think anyone has ever said “gee, I wish I would have spent more time doing housework…” There are days to just let it all slide and enjoy the lovely moments with our little ones. Besides, if it really bugs me, I’ll find it in the budget to hire someone now and again…
