Actually I hate cleaning period but I always WANT everything to be clean. It's like I'm really OCD about being clean but since I don't really have OCD then I am not motivated to clean it. So stuff gets unorganized and messy and then I get all edgy and nervous but there's either not enough time to organize EVERYTHING or really what happens is I just don't want to do it so I just live with the stress of it.

Oh, you speak to my heart! That's exactly how I feel about cleaning. I could have written those exact words! I feel validated!

Actually, I think you should pay a visit to feministmama's house and my house and get it all out of your system. Then we can relax in our clean, organized houses, and you'll be so spent you might even put the white washclothes in with the blue!

Ok...my turn....oh boy, I have to actually admit this stuff.

First of all...I cannot leave work with a messy desk. All the files on my side table are organized by what needs to be done, and order recieved. All my pens and paper have to be put away, I even organize how and where they are put. (I went to Wal-mart and bought one of those three drawer bins that is teeny tiny so it fits neatly on my desk. Everything has a place and everything has to be in it's place before I leave for the day. If I come to work and my desk is messy, I cannot get organized all day.

I cannot stand being late for ANYTHING...I will call my hairdresser/doctors/family members/etc if I am going to be a few minutes late. If I am late to work, I feel rushed all day. (I lived with a man who was late for EVERYTHING...I would tell him we needed to be there 30 minutes before we actually needed to be there, so he would be on time.)

Dishes have to be washed in a certain order...glasses, silverware, plates, plastics then pots and pans, and if the water gets lukewarm inbetween, I change it...has to be hot water (red hands hot).

I will not drink out of a can, it has to go into a cup or glass.

I have to have something hot to drink every morning...could be tea, coffee or hot chocolate, but it has to be hot...and no I don't sing.

I can's sleep without the dog next to me (on the floor).

I never leave my knitting on the sofa or table (just put it down), it is always put away in a bag.

Ok....I think I freaked everyone out enough for one day.....

None of that is freaky. Now if you said you have to turn the light switch on and off exactly 7 times as you entered the kitchen or your dog would get sick, and that if you didn't lock and unlock the door exactly 11 times the neighbor would burn your house down, and if you had to chew each bite exactly 37 times or you would get a pimple on your nose, then I'd say your were really freaky and needed help.

This is what REAL OCD looks like.

You guys are neat freaks! :rofling:
