Quoting ♥CAvigu♥:" We lived in a 1000 sq ft townhouse with our 2 kids, it was a perfect size! Right now we live in a 2100 ... [snip!] ... there is just more space to have to clean! Your Mom is probably just unhappy with her life. Sorry she is taking it out on you "
Oh I know 100% she is unhappy with her life. She could change it easily by kicking my dad out but doesn't want to do it for whatever reason.
We live in a 1400 sqft house now and I feel like all I do is clean. I miss our townhouse which was like 800. It seemed so uch easier to keep clean. Maybe because I had less crap or because it looked so much worse early so I had to clean.
