The next time a friend is coming to your house with her kids (or even without) and you are about to apologize repeatedly for the condition of your home, I want you to stop.
And I want you to think about this.
While I understand that complete and total chaos in your home can create some stress, complete and total order does not necessarily get rid of it.
There will be time for cleaning when the kids are in school.
If you choose folding laundry over exercise, sure, you may have one less pile on your table.
But folded laundry does not lower your blood pressure or decrease your risk for diabetes or even necessarily model a healthy behavior for your kids.
(Your kids can fold that laundry anyway).
Vacuuming or washing dishes may seem much more important than playing catch or lying outside in the grass with your five-year-old.
There will always be laundry to fold and dishes to wash.
But there won’t always be days where your kids are little and begging for your attention.
Then there are your friends…
If your house is total shithole, what will your friends think?
Let me tell you something.
Your friends do not give a flying fuck about the condition of your house.
How do I know?
Because today I got this text:
Sure, an immaculate house might be nice.
But it doesn’t beat comfortable and inviting.
So screw the cleaning for tonight.
Summer goes by so quickly.
Your kids, and your friends,
are waiting for you.
