    Red face Brinda's spring cleaning journal

    OK, I'm totally embarassed and so glad you all don't know me. With a family of 5, my kitchen looks like this by the end of the day. I had just finished shopping, too. Yes, I AM making excuses.

    Having a large family must be so difficult. I only have 2 and I know how difficult it is to keep up. I have a decent routine, but when I stray from it, it gets pretty out of control here with clutter.

    I'll take some pics of my entryway counters and maybe you'll feel better. Our children are the priority and that's OK.

    Don't be embarrassed. Your home isn't dirty. There's just stuff that needs to be put in a new spot.

    It looks pretty typical to me, Brinda. Don't be embarrassed I'm sure the groceries were put away when you had time.

    I love looking at the photos of my FV sisters' homes. They show me that we are all similar.

    Brinda, looks pretty normal to me with your size family. BTW, I love your kitchen and that little cutie in the chair too!

    Did you sneak into my house with your camera? I'm sure you can handle it! My camera is broke, so I can't take any pics, just know that you are not alone!!!!

    Thanks! We did the island, tile backsplash, and chairrail ourselves! We are pretty proud of it.
