(aka the cleaning lady) is this... When the house is perfect, I want it to stay that way so badly that I turn into a nagging wife! I get VERY annoyed when my hubby leaves even one dish in the sink (hello, the dishwasher is 6 inches away! Put your dirty dishes in it!!), or doesn't leave the throw pillows perfectly placed on the couch when he is done watching tv. On a side note, I feel the same way about the laundry- once every single thing is clean, I swear I wish we could all just wear the same thing for a few days so the hampers wouldn't fill up so quickly again! Ughhh! Am I crazy or what? Any other mamas want to share their OCD moments?? I think I am being this way lately because bringing the new baby home has thrown our routine for a loop.... of course I would have it no other way, but having so much new gear added to our home has made it harder to keep tidy, so I have been a little on edge about that. It's just hard enough with a new baby and a toddler without having to deal with clutter. Am I a control freak or something?
I guess because the cleaning lady is not a regular thing, I just want the house to stay the way it was when she left, for as long as possible. The one positive thing has been that we are spending tons of time outside- it's good for all of us, and we leave the house in tact. Win!
