Do you like to clean? Are you obsessive about it?

I think I strike a good balance between healthy and happy versus sterile and never satisifed with results.

But I went from a major procrastinator to someone who likes to clean!

I like a very clean house and everything in place, but I'm not a clean freak. When my son was young he always use to tease me about being a cleaning freak, but now who like a clean house? He does! It is just a lot easier to keep up on a house instead of letting it go. And it doesn't take a lot of work to just keep up on it.

That's great! You set a good example for your son. He grew up in a tidy home so he is used to living in clean surroundings.

And you're so right. Once it is clean, maintaining it is quick and easy.

It's so funny how "clean" is subjective. Like that line from Ghostbusters, "There are many levels to clean." LOL. I love Bill Murray!

I also had a sign once that said, "Our house is clean enough to be healthy and dirty enough to be happy."

But then the kids got sick and I had to take it down. :P

I love cleaning things and having everything be shiny, nicely scented and somewhat sanitary. Sometimes I think it's a tiny bit OCD, and sometime it think it's b/c of my mother. All I know is that I feel better when there aren't crumbs, nose prints, baseboard splashes and dusty furniture in my life. smile

Clean is one thing. Clutter is another. I have a total handle on "clean" but when it comes to clutter...not so good.

Cleanliness does not disrupt my daily life until one day it just DOES. I can happily saunter along, day by day, as the laundry basket turns into a laundry mountain, the (impractically small anyways!) waste basket turns into a mountain rivaling Laundry Mountain, the unfolded clean laundry happily gestates hidden away in the closet, random pairs of both my and my fiances shoes wait in perilous slumber for their chance to trip one of us, half drank glasses of water (I can't drink a full glass of water for I am convinced it becomes contaminated by invisible-to-the-eye air ghoulies waiting to be given an invitation to my bowels!), blinds up one side but down on the other, old receipts and magazines and overdue library books and hard week old solitary snickerdoodles sun bathing amidst the cacti on the dresser. And then one day, I look around and feel utterly trapped, suffocated and down-right demonized by all of the chaos and clean it all up. After wards, I feel fresh and peaceful and happy and celebrate with a big cold (half) glass of water and a snickerdoodle cookie and the remnants don't seem worrisome enough to clean up just yet...

I'm not a clean freak, but cleaning is theraputic for me. It allows my hands to keep busy while my mind is free to roam.

I just got an email with a household cleaning tip:

Always keep several get well cards on your mantel. This way, when unexpected guests arrive, they will think you were ill and unable to clean! LOL!!!

Wouldn't say I am a clean freak, but I like my place to be clean.
