Well June Cleaver I am not

I just really don't get it.   I see other moms and wives and their houses are always tidy and in order, and 1/2 of the time my house looks like a bomb exploded in it.

There is laundry, there are dishes in the sink, diapers to change, trash cans to take out, floors that need to be vacuumed, bathrooms that need to be cleaned, beds made, clothes folded and put away, dogs to feed, poop to pick up...... the list is never ending, thankless, and ridiculous.  I am the only one cleaning, Phyillis Diller once said, "Cleaning house will you have children is the same as shoveling your walk way in a snow storm".  No kidding!!!! She should have said children and husbands, I'm not sure who is messier the kids or him.

 It's 11o'clock, I get up to go to work at 4am.  All the dishes are done, there are 3 loads of laundry in baskets at the foot of my bed to be put away in the kids rooms they are asleep, and lunches are made, and I got a workout in.   Everyone is asleep, I will leave for work at 4:30, and when I get home from work at 11AM this house will look like banshees ran through and destroyed my hard work.  The same thing happens every day.

So you people need to tell me how you get it all done,  I want to be a good mommy, a good worker, a good wife, a good blogger, fit, healthy and not insane.  So other than stealing some kids ADD medication, I need to know how you all do it????  With small children I'm sure it will get better but for now I'm at a loss.  I want Calgon to take me away but I don't want to have to clean the bathtub afterwards!
