I will take an order of anal retention with a side of OCD!

I wasn't the clean one in the family...that award went to Kimberly growing up! But times have changed slightly. Yesterday was cleaning day and although I dread the task of cleaning house, I always feel a sense of accomplishment when the job is done. But the bonus is when you realize your kids do actually listen to you about the importance of keeping the house looking nice. Last night before church I overheard Abbey tell Matthew "Dad, I can't walk there because Mom just vacuumed and I don't want to mess up the floor!" AAAHHHH! There is nothing better than the vacuum lines on the carpet. Brady on the other hand sits at the living room door waiting for me to finish vacuuming so he can drive his trucks through there and leave tracks in the carpet. Yeah, he's not quite there yet with the appreciation of a freshly vacuumed floor!

Yeah, I cleaned yesterday too, when Phil got home he slipped his shoes off in the dining room and in my scary voice told him, "don't you dare leave those there. The floor is so clean you could eat off it and it is cleaner than your tongue!" He promptly put his shoes away!


Oh and BTW, its not OCD, its CDO - alphabetical order! ;)
