Sorry I cannot fix all the typs the iPad isn't the best for making posts on here. We need an iPad app. Honest to Pete! No one in my house picks up, puts away, wipes up anything or takes off mud ridden cleats. I cannot keep up. My boys and my DH take their clothes off of where they stand and tHrow them on the floor. I find all sorts of clothes everywhere. I had four large loads I picked up from the family room this week. I just kept adding to the pile in the middle of the floor all week. Most of it can be worn again. I find clothes in corners all over the house. I even have to pick them up out of the kitchen. I just took HUGE tubs of clothes out of the hallway that were not dirty. My son just doesn't put away his clean clothes when I bring them to him. When he cleans his room he just throws all the clothing on his floor into the hall for me. If they are in the kitchen fixing something nothing is ever put or thrown away. I have empty boxes of Mac and cheese I have to throw away, spills all over the counter, food stuck to pans and dishes just left. My DH just made coco wheats and the box is sitting on the stove and all ingredients left for me to put away. I really can not give a clear picture to anyone the disaster my house is in at all times. I can't even keep up they have it tore back up before I ever get things in order. My boys play football and come in the family room in mud packed cleats. When the mud dries I have clomps of dirt all over. It is laminate floor but still. I work full time and run my boys to football practice every night and to three games a week. The weekends I try to get some things done but the youngest has games and I always have to stop to go watch him. I never can do the things like windows, floors, walls etc. Because all my time is spent playing pick up and trying to get the laundry in some sort of manageable situation. If I do end up getting it all washed and on the folding table by the end of the weekend they will go down and riffle through it and don't put it back. They just let it fall on the floor for me to pick back up. Now I have tried to solve this by talking to them. Anytime I do it is received to be £|tch!ng. I have tried giving chores, rewards, grounding etc. Nothing works! My dh and I had some relationship problems and part of it was the mess issues and I left foe 4months. Well they fell in line for a while but know it is back the the same ole same ole routine. My dh works two jobs. He just started doing this the past three months. He didn't help any when he wasn't working a lot previously but know I have both the boys all the time, all the animals to take care of, all the running to games and practice and this huge mess to try to balance. I feel myself getting to a braking point and I am going to blow my top!!! .
