I've seen some pretty horrible...

When you have company coming do you run around cleaning even if it is already tidy because you know you can spruce up a few more things? Our family does. We had company coming today and did just that. Mind you it was just picking up the bathroom and vacuuming, but it was still a spruce up none the less.

After our company came and went we all got on the conversation of messy houses. I've seen some pretty horrible houses in my day. From rich to poor I have seen it all, some that are dirty, smelly, a hoarders dream, or any combination in between. I have been places where you wouldn't dare take a seat, breath, and others you couldn't wait to flee.

Our home itself has been anywhere from organized and tidy to a complete disaster, with the later happening mostly when I have been ill mind you, but also when I was working two jobs outside of our home, putting in over 120 hours a week. I don't even remember much about those times other then making a lot of money. When all was said and done, it was not worth it. My health, my house, and my children all suffered from it.

Even though I've seen seen some pretty horrible houses what matters in the end is that it is a happy home, full of love, laughter, and family.

  1. I've always wondered about the people who live in houses that look like they are straight out of a magazine. My house isn't ready for "Hoarders" yet, but it is messy enough to look lived in.
