I have been a stay-at-home mom for 2 years now. I just started working from home, very part time, very little pay. I keep getting into this mood (lasts for days, sometimes weeks) where I don't want to clean anymore! I usually resolve to clean my house by the end of the day, but I always have to force myself into it. I am 37 years old and have worked almost everyday leading up to this 2 year sabbatical. I always loved to clean my house, being a little OCD, it was kind of an obsession. Now I do it every day and really have to convince myself to do it. It feels so repetitive and I never get the sense of accomplishment that I used to, not to mention pointless (I mean really how dirty can the kitchen floor really get when no one is in there).
The worst part of the whole thing, is I really don't have anything better to do. I find TV boring and there's only so much internet surfing you can do before you want to pluck your own eye balls out for wasting so much time. I just don't want to clean anymore!
Please tell me that I am not alone, or being selfish, and by all means any advice to amp up my cleaning drive would be greatly appreciated.
