I am in awe! I have the desire to do that sort of cleaning, just not the strength or energy. But I am getting little things done here and there.


Awesome! I was right there with you, but on a smaller scale. I had doable things on my list to do each day and I can happily say they are now accomplished. It feels good, but there is yet so much more to do. It will get done! You rock Carmen:)

I was in awe reading about it on FB. Did you have the kids help? Or, did you have them leave the house? I have a hard time getting anything done with the kids and husband in the house.


Good for you! For sure it will help give you peace! My laundry room needs work- why is it that every kid has their very own locker--all to him/herself--yet soccer bags, cleats, shin guards, etc. all end up in my laundry room? Drives me nuts--as I trip over it all because I can hardly walk in there to do laundry!

Good job and well done! I so need to do this at my own house. Relish in the cleanliness of it all.


Oh I need to do this SO badly and now, you may have inspired me. I know I will be happier and so will the rest of the family if I can just put my head down and do it but oh, mustering up the energy is difficult isn't it? We are having a small gathering next weekend so at least the first floor needs to be done. Okay. I'm gonna do it. Wish me luck . . .

About Me

  • Carmen Staicer is a whirlwind of energy and execution, who never sleeps and drinks way too much coffee. She works from home as Social Media Programs Manager for SheKnows, and is the mom to six kids, most of whom play instruments, sing or dance and all of whom are much smarter than she will ever be. In other words, her house is never ever quiet or still. A concentration of asthma, food allergies, spectrum disorders and learning disabilities means that she spends an awful lot of time second guessing herself and Dr. Googling, as well as learning to cook everything the family might like to eat. In her spare time, she enjoys reading, boxing (she has her Black Belt in Muay Thai), sleeping, exploring coffee shops, photography, ballet class and cooking. She excels in being a smart mouth and has her major in sarcasm, with a dual minor in BS studies and avoiding laundry.
