I absolutely relate! I am not a daily house cleaner any more due largely in part to my medical issues but someone once said to me:
The epithet on my headstone is not going to read "She kept a spotless home." (even if I did).
I also like to go by:
THIS HOME GLADLY WELCOMES YOU TO COME IN BUT DON'T EXPECT TO FIND ALL THE DISHES DONE, ALL FLOORS A SHINE. OBSERVE THE CRUMBS AND TOYS GALORE, THE SMUDGY PRINTS UPON THE DOOR. THE LITTLE ONES WE SHELTER HERE DON'T THRIVE ON A SPOTLESS ATMOSPHERE. THEY'RE MORE INCLINED TO DISARRAY AND CAREFREE, EVEN MESSY PLAY. THEIR NEEDS ARE GREAT, THEIR PATIENCE SMALL. ALL DAY I'M AT THEIR BECK AND CALL. IT'S MOMMY COME! MOMMY SEE! WIGGLY WORMS AND RED SCRAPED KNEES. PAINTED PICTURES, BLOCKS PILED HIGH, MY FLOORS UNSHINED, THE DAYS GO BY. SOME FUTURE DAY THEY'LL FLEE THIS NEST AND I AT LAST WILL HAVE A REST! NOW YOU TELL ME WHICH MATTERS MORE:
A HAPPY CHILD OR A POLISHED FLOOR?
