Holy spread too thin batman

I am a little OCD. Ok. Maybe a lot. But, I don't think I fit the typical characteristics. Here are my symptoms:

1) I put things where they are supposed to go....over and over again....
In other words, I move things around frequently all the while with the mindset that the previous "home" of whatever items I am focused on wasn't the right home and they need to be moved. This would probably be complaint number one from my dear husband.

2) I feel a strong need to do an insane amount of things...sometimes all at once.
In the midst of spring hell I decided to plant a vegetable garden (that was technically Sara's idea), start a photography class, and sew a dress (two or three times because I consistently feel something is wrong with it). Throw in that my tennis team made it to the playoffs and my child is about turn ONE and I am teetering on the edge of my full plate.

3) I feel like nothing is ever really, EVER.
Due to the time consuming nature of numbers one and two (and being a mommy/wife) the cleaning gets shoved under the rug (hahaha). But, even when I do clean I truly feel like I could do it all day and things still wouldn't be clean. I have convinced myself that everyone with an old house feels that way. I don't want a new house. I love the "feel" of old houses. That is, houses that have character and style and are usually built before 1930. NOT houses like mine that were built in the mid sixties so they look lame and boring but come with the dirt and disaster that the cool old houses have without the charm. Unfortunately, the dirtiness that I can't seem to keep up with probably has way more to do with me/us than it does the house.

There you have it. OCD? A flair for the dramatic? You be the judge.

  1. Ugh- I feel your pain on the old house! No matter how much I clean, it still feels dirty! But I love my house! :)
    p.s. I feel like your house always looks clean.
