I hope this is the right place to post this--it seems a little against the grain. :)
I'm looking for support or advice on making peace with clutter and chaos in my home. I have a two year old (a very wild two year old, at that) plus I run a "playschool" a few days a week, so my house is constantly filled with toddlers and toys. My hubby is great about big cleaning projects (you should see that man with a mop!) but is pretty messy otherwise---throws dirty clothes on the floor, leaves dirty dishes around, etc.
I'm not a neat freak by any means, but excessive clutter bothers me. When there are messes around me, I feel like I can't relax until they're all dealt with. So basically, I haven't felt relaxed in two years! I've tried all different systems, and had lots of talks with my DH, but basically, I don't think there's a practical solution to the messiness in our house. There will always be some toys laying about, dishes that need to be done, laundry that needs folding, etc. I'm now trying to focus on being able to feel relaxed and content in all the chaos!
Any advice---how do you deal with a constantly messy house?
