I need to get a little dirty
I'm driving my husband nuts. I believe all the cleaning I do has a purpose and is logical, but I think it is time to stop for the sake of family peace.
Okay, in a nut shell this is me.
*We all change our clothes and clean up when we get home from wherever. We always wash hands when we come home and of course shoes are taken off.
*When I get home from the store, I wipe/wash everything I bought - such as groceries, decorations, toys... (I don't do crazy cleaning like wiping the inside the cereal box).
*All coats, purses, wallets etc, stay in the basement (they don't come upstairs).
*Cell phones are cleaned as soon as they come in the door.
*When people visit I am stressed out. I dread all the cleaning I have to do when they go. I want to ask them to please take their shoes off, put on slippers, wash their hands, leave their coats, purses, cell phones in their cars but I know they will think I am looney toons.
So that's me. I am embarrassed and a little confused. Embarrassed because I know my friends and family think I have a problem they just can't figure it out and I am obviously not normal. I'm confused because I believe I can justify each of my cleaning actions. We live in a world with a lot of disease, dirt, bacteria and germs and I simply want my home to be a sanctuary.
How do I stop stressing over the dirties that come through the door!?!?
