Another house moment?

I was talking to a friend recently about house cleaning chores and varying definitions of a clean home. I told her about when I was a kid some woman told my mom that her house was "so dirty because she hasn't cleaned her baseboards in a month" or something like that. my mom, realizing that she had never cleaned her baseboards, gave us kids the chore the following saturday. I remember thinking it was silly. So after telling that story, I started noticing my baseboards. They really are dusty. So for the past couple of days, when I see them, and I'm close, and not doing anything else, I wipe them off with my hands--which means basically they're clean around the toilet, walking up the stairs, and next to "sam spots" where he sits down to play. Which also means the floor is now dusty there. Ah, the joys of cleaning house.

I always clean my baseboards before Laura comes to visit! I'll take your "clean enough for me" house any day of the week!

Admit it or not, but sometimes, we really get so lazy cleaning our own home. If we could just only let our house dirty the whole week or the whole month, but it's really impossible because we want our homes to be kept clean all the time.

I admit, I'm such a lazy mom and I truly hate cleaning. But to make sure that my home's clean all the time, I always call Minneapolis hvac services to do some hvac and house cleaning. Minneapolis janitorial services staff were very friendly and cheerful every time they come into so it's kinda enjoying watching them cleaning my house.
