Is an reflection of how you feel? Ex: if it is messy, you are feeling low. If its clean, you are happy.

    No. I clean when I'm stressed or mad, but I also clean because I like order and cleanliness. I'd say it's messy more often when I'm content/happy, because I'm not in a "must be in control" state of mind, and taking it out on my house, lol.

    Not necessarily.

    When the kids are gone, and I want to relax, I often don't pick up after myself immediately. I'll leave my cereal bowl in the living room til I feel like picking it up (usually that same day).

    And there are other times when I'm stressed out and need to occupy myself (or just want to avoid everyone) and will clean ridiculously.



    On the OTHER hand- when I first moved on my own it was really messy most of the time, and I was depressed most of the time...


    All that said, lol, I think it can certainly fit, but isn't always a direct correlation.

    No. One of the most pessimistic, grumpy, unhappy people I know is obsessed with cleaning. She's clearly angry at the world, but her house is always spotless.

    No..my house being messy says "she has two toddlers and is 35 weeks preggo" lol

    I keep up pretty good but like the toy room...no way am I going to spend all that time...then they just mess it up again. They still need alot of help and direction with picking up...so we do it twice a week, then dh and them do it on sundays.
