Yesterday my older 2 were home from school due to sniffles etc. They were happily running about the house so they obviously weren't feeling too bad. So I got them to do something productive - they emptied their desk and bedside drawers and threw out the myriad papers and other little bits they keep but never use. We ended up with 4 garbage bags full of crud and freshly cleaned out and wiped down drawers (for them to restock - grr). We also cleaned out the toy shelves. I feel awesome right now!
I must vacuum every morning before we leave for school. All breakfast dishes must be washed and put away and one load of washing must be on for me to put out when I get home from drop offs. All beds and rooms must be tidy and all curtains opened. The bathroom must be free of toothpaste streaks and all towels and pjs placed in the laundry for the second wash.
I absolutely cannot handle leaving the house when it's messy.
What do you obsess about?
