I know that a lot of people daydream about a clean house. To look around the house and know that there is not a dish to be cleaned, a sock to be washed. It's a good dream.
Our house has been on the market since June. It's been stressful as I daily try to maintain a clean house in case someone comes to look at it. In the beginning, I was a little casual about it because we usually had a 1/2 day notice. Anyone can clean a house given six house notice. Those were the good old days.
Now, for some reason, we have been getting zero notice. We've had 8 showings and our notice that someone is coming over has been 17 minutes, 14 minutes, and yesterday was the worst: 8 minutes. So I have been a little more diligent about cleaning the house in case our notice is a matter of minutes because we usually only have time to gather up our kids and get out the door!
So I do not daydream about a clean house anymore. I daydream about a horribly messy house that I can veg out in and it's okay.
