i can relate to that. our house is getting cleaner though as i have older children. when they chip in, it's great (cluttered, but clean) but when they just make mess it's very frustrating (we home ed too. it doesn't take long for everything to be out)
my twins are 19 months now and i've been cooking proper food fairly frequently for a few months i guess. before that I personally ate more convenience food than I care to remember
anyway, likely you are on the wrong board if you want to find a high proportion of immaculate houses
so I guess that means you're in goood company
it really doesn't last forever. what helped me to get a groove going again was to allocate a room to a day of the week and do something
in that room on that day. if it didn't happen, i let it go and looked to the next day. i also allocated a certain food type to day of week, so that if i couldn't think, it would give me an idea. like pasta/ rice/ potato dish.
and laundry just gets bunged in as and when. i try
to make sure everyone has clean knickers and pants
it usually works out ok
