2. If you want someone to clean your house, you need to look in the mirror because you made that bed, now lie in it. Don’t pretend like it’s because your husband doesn’t help you. Because guess what! HUSBANDS aren’t by nature, big helpers in this arena.
3. Husbands, help. Stop saying it’s all her fault. Maybe if showed her a little love and attention she’d stop going to Target or the dump to get crap to fill your home with.
4. Here’s a huge fact for you. NO. ONE. LIKES. THROWING. AWAY. STUFF. Do you think anyone loves tossing something they spent their hard earned cash on? Not even me, but I do it — daily, weekly, forever. I also ingrain it in my children so they realize that stuff is just stuff and your life is your life.
Anyway, I guess my brightness of hope just couldn’t shine on these people. I was one of the rare few who really loved Sister Beck’s talk about being a better homemaker. I think it’s always an area that all of us can improve upon. This isn’t to say that my house isn’t always spotless, but I do love it a lot more when it’s clean. I feel more peace, more happiness, and more brightness of hope.
As a disclaimer, I do think that there is a small percentage of these people who actually have this problem, but a lot of them are just lazy and that’s just sad. Aren’t there enough lazy people on TV already?
