I am wondering if I am the only SAHM who is seemingly obsessed with keeping a clean house.
I have a 2.5 year old little boy, and my house is always generally tidy.
I think I am starting to develop a problem with being overly stressed about the condition of my house. I vacuum once every two days, sweep at least 3 times a day, there are rarely dishes left unattended, toys are always put away, and the beds are always made.
There are also times where I am up till 1-2 in the morning folding laundry, because I get anxious to think of the laundry sitting in the basket till morning.
I feel anxious, and stressed when I see cleaning piling up (even if it just a load of dishes).I thing I am starting to get a little controlling over house cleaning.
I am wondering if this is a regular house-wife tendency... to be a super cleaning machine.
So I guess my question to all those Stay-at-home moms is: Do you find yourself obsessing over a clean house? How clean is your house usually?
How much do you accomplish in a day for cleaning?
I am just trying to get a better handle on my day, and am trying to maintain realistic goals for myself.
