My house is a mess & I am too tired to clean it, but I really want it clean before the baby comes. Help me. Are there any neat freaks out there? How do you do it? Every time I bend down, I feel like I can't get up. I am sure if I clean for the next few hrs, I will go into labor from all the work & even that is not enough incentive to get it done. I'd rather take a nap. AAARRGHH!

I am *not* a neat freak, so I can't help you with advice, but I feel for you, especially if you're in one of the places that's getting this heat wave!

I'd come and clean it if I lived by you!!! Last night I drank half of a Coke Blak
: I NEVER drink pop, but both DH and I got into this cleaning spree, setting up the guest room, doing laundry, cleaning the kitchen. I know caffeine and high fructose corn syrup are not things anyone needs to be ingesting, but if its literally the ONE time this year you're gonna do it, now's a good time. Err....that was my reasoning....

I am NOT a neat freak - and it is HOTTTTTTTTTT here so I am not very motivated to clean ...and since my first bout of "practice labor" a few weeks ago, I haven't been in the mood to do anything but have this baby. However, yesterday I got it together and got all the housework done - first time in probably 3 weeks. I go by Flylady's motto: you can do anything for 15 minutes. So, I set the timer for 15 minutes and start cleaning the house and 9 times out of 10, by the time it goes off, I want to keep going. And if I don't want to keep going, I don't - I'm 9 months pregnant - I can do what I want!!
