Can't you just.....

Starting her out young 
relax!  My husband shouts to me from across the room.  I totally cleaned that up and NO I cannot f8ckin  relax because you know that I am an OCD clean freak nightmare and you knew this when you married me. If I do not keep shit organized my brain becomes scrambled and when my brain is scrambled I m no good to anyone. I like things to be organized and set if we do not have organization in our hectic lives then I just might just stay in bed all day and hang out with GG while housework and everything else I accomplish in a day on the back burner.  Hello hoarders anyone? I am going to pat myself on the back because I get done more in a few hours right after I get up then most people get done all day. That's the way I'm wired. This does not include the many activities I run myself and GG to throughout the day. I am always on the go and when I have a little bit a free time to myself I do not know what to do with it so I tend to start another project.  So it's hard for me to relax, shoot me why don't ya?!  On some days I want to thank my mom on other days I want to cuss her out for giving me this gene. You see when I was a teenager I did not get to sleep in. I was taught at an early age that I earned my keep and I was tossed out of bed at 7:00 am to so the weekly Saturday chores.I have pics of myself setting the table at 3. My brother never got this type of treatment WHY because he was a male in an Italian family. Nuff' said.


It is easy to tell someone to relax when they are easy going as my husband but I am the opposite. I have been this way forever I only took a break from it for a bit {party days} and I do not know how I got through it for a few years. But even with the good ol party days still hungover from the night before my ass was always at my desk by 7:30 am while other rolled in at the usual 9:00. Am I weird..... because I don't like dishes in the sink/dishwasher, laundry in the hampers, I vacuum everyday, do not like toys all over the place and need the beds to be made every morning with YES every damn decorative throw pillow neatly arranged? Am on my way to psycho status because my closet goes from light to dark short to long and that I cannot think clearly when my photo frames and kitchen appliances are not completely set up just like so? Some people might say it is because I am a stay at home mama but you know what I did this same shit when I was working so that is not the case. I have been wanting take a week off of housework and see what the male species in our home would do if this happened but then I think of the days when I have been sick in bed w/flu and everything that gets done on a daily basis by moi have come to a alt and I know that I could not do it. So for now I have learned to love the way that I am and if some people have a problem with it oh well. This is ME take me as I am. Peace out.

Uhm, if you'll move in here, I promise to take you as you are! lol I am by no means a slob (but I live with two) and it drives me crazy!

You rock and any house would be lucky to have you! I think it's great that you're teaching your child (I have no doubts if GG was a boy, you would do the same) responsibility and how to clean.
Blessings and light,
Susan

Sometimes the status of this places drives me, but not always enough for me to deal with it all!

OMG! We were separated at birth. I am a clean-o-holic, it drives my family insane. But sadly, it brings me so much happiness to see things clean.
