I'm doing laundry and thinking about something a friend said about not folding her underwear but putting it right into her drawer, all crumpled up. So I started wondering about you. Do you fold all of your laundry and put it away neatly like I do, or are you more like her? My son has heard this since he started doing his own laundry at eleven, "If you fold everything as soon as you take it out of the dryer, it won't be wrinkled." I've seen his piled unfolded, so I told him not to send Brendan to school in wrinkled clothes. And I think I'm not an interfering mother! LOL Fortunately, he's used to me and knows I just have to say things but am not invested in his doing more than hearing me. I've told him if I thought he'd do everything I told him, it would stifle me because that would be too much responsibility to be careful about everything I say. (note the title of this blog)
My money has to face the same direction in order of denomination - 20's in the back, then 10's, 5's, and 1's if I have all those. It bothers me when people crumple up their money and have it everywhere in their purse, but I silently judge. Yes, my books and CD's are arranged by genre and with little jokes to myself with some titles together. If I can't amuse myself, then what's the point?
So how am I living in chaos, you might ask? It's that perfectionist thing of "if I can't do it right, I just won't do it" and has bogged me down. I realize that's nuts and am making things look better without getting hung up on it all. I'm not a perfectionist about everything and not OCD but might have a few control issues. LOL
What about you?
