I am watching a show called “The Marriage Ref” for the first time. This is funny. The show is basically about married couples telling their problem to celebrities and then they vote on who is right. There are 3 couples and one of them will win $25,000.
In this instance, the husband is a neat freak! He is over the top to me. He puts signs all over the house to tell her what to do. No one else lives there lol. He has a sign saying “close the door, until it clicks.” Really? She wouldn’t know how to lock a door? He opens her taco sauce packages according to the directions, because she does not do it right. He has signs that says not to do all kinds of shit. He cleans constantly! She is complaining that he is just too much. She says can’t even relax in her own home; he says everything needs order.
How much is too much?
I like a clean home. I like things to look and smell clean. I am not OCD or a “neat freaky” though. I just don’t have the patience for that kinda thing. My bathroom and kitchen are the places, that I like to have clean all the time. I do however understand that I have to be reasonable. As long as you clean your home, put things where they belong, and just keep things in order as you go along, your house will be fine. I love walking into my house and it is clean and smells clean.
Some people do too much though.
I refuse to walk behind my kids picking up every single toy all day. When they are done, we clean up. They know how to put things back as well. My sister will pick up toys all day. Why? You don’t have anything else to do? That doesn’t make a dirty house. My mother will sweep the floor ten times for the day.
How clean does your mate need to be? Is a little messy okay? Is OCD okay?
