  • anyone else live with slobs?

    Venting-for real, every day I groom I get to clean 2+ hours to just start making it look ok for anyone to come over. This combined with full time school, combined with recent sickness makes me want to scream. Not to mention shoveling lake effect snow with a bad back-ickes

    I live with myself. Never used to be that way, but the house takes a back seat to the truck.

    I'm really lucky tho I have 5 bathrooms to keep clean. Three in the house, one in my shop and the one in the truck. Wonderful.

      I CANNOT wait to get my business into the renovated garage! Right now Molly and I are working out of the kitchen. I keep the living room as clean as possible but with 3 dogs of my own and a muddy back yard, the floor doesn't always look clean. Hannah cleans the kitchen every other day for her chores to earn her spending money but there's usually ALWAYS hair on the floor and at least 2 dishes in the sink...

          Yes that person is me. Well a reforming on any way. My hubby is not a lot better so on a busy day from the grooming room to the bathing room has clumps of hair on the carpet. I don't have school and all that other stuff to deal with but hubby is home recovering from shoulder surgry so that is one more person under foot all day.

                That's the ONLY way I ever got the house clean before: I had to have a meltdown. Now that it's just me and Hannah it's a little better.
                I just realized that it doesn't help grooming in a house that I just moved in to!!!!!

                      Funny stuff.


                      My roomies (the cats) have no respect for my need for neatness. They are always leaving stuff laying around for me to pick up. Toys are EVERYWHERE, furballs are most everywhere and nose prints on the aquarium and windows. My newest little girl likes to redecorate...she takes the pillows off the couch, towels off the rack, cat beds off the furniture and drags them around the house and into a sunbeam. After all, a girl needs to be comfy while basking. Now to teach her to put her stuff away after she's done with it.

                      I must say, these roommates are WAY better and WAY tidier than the two-legged one that was with me for 5 years. As a very funny lady once said: KANK - Straight to the Curb. :-)

                        I don't groom from home, but YES I live with a slob. Fully retired from two jobs and my house has laundry (clean at least) piled evrywhere and no room EVER on any flat surface. Top it off with he never finishes any repair or chore. He pulled out kitchen cabinets one day two years ago to replace the floor. the tiles are still in the boxes int he corner of the kitchen and I still have no cabinets.......I don't have to cook at least , which is good, cause there is nowhere to do prepwork.

                          God's revenge

                          Dear Groomers,

                          God's revenge for procreation is "teenagers"!

                          Like bears they don't eat they forage. You can tell they had a midnight snack by the spaghetti sauce trails to their bedroom. Why do they put empty containers back in the frige when there is a perfectly good trashmasher in the kitchen. Do you think they could put a lid or cap back on the containers?

                          Could they close a cabinet door or wash a dish or replace the toilet tissue? Why is the floor where they put their cloths when they have a perfectly good chair to hang them on? Why are their cars garbage receptacles? Why do they finish everything in the frige? Do you think they could leave a dollop of cream for my coffee in the morning or a slice of bread?

                          Could they do their own laundry once? How about shopping for groceries or making us dinner once in a while. Sure they are busy with college and [b]girls[/b] but that is no excuse.

                          If I though I was going to have to live with two grown adults I really didn't want to live with because they are slobs I would have had a vasectomy at birth! I pity the girl they marry. Hope she is rich and can afford a maid. Maybe she will be able to bring them up to human standards!

                          Don't get me wrong, I love my children dearly and wouldn't have it any other way but........YUK. My wife and I are talking about moving out to a one bedroom apartment somewhere 3,000 miles away!

                          I am sure that most every parent has been in this dilemma. Can't live with them and can't live without them. I am very proud of my sons and their acomplishments but how can I get them to join the human race?

                          My mother used to say, [b]"Wait till you have children".[/b] I didn't understand that then but realize that's a mother’s revenge! Oh the irony. My poor wife deserves the [b]Nobel Prize![/b]

                          I help as much as possible but she is the Maternal Queen and runs the home and the Pet Salon and cleans it too. She has employees that help and we hire a maid once a week but it is still overwhelming. Maybe we should have had girls. Like that was our choice. Are teenage girls any better?

                            OMG! I thought my husband was bad, lol. He at least gets things to a liveable state, and most people wouldn't notice most of the little things that are left unfinished...I don't know how you are able to put up with that...

                              Luckily NO!! LOL I work 40 hours at a non grooming job, I work Saturdays at a salon and groom from home on some Sunday's and some weekday evening. My husband is GREAT, he also has a very demanding job that keeps him out of the house a lot, but he cleans up after himself and helps with dishes and laundry and taking care of the dog, he cooks most of the dinners and everything. I have been blessed.
