I like the car idea. I have a wagon so will have to put a box in there just for returns.

I then proceeded to ask him if he knew if she counted things.
He was confused.
I'm trying to work out if my counting things all the time has some kind of connection to my slight OCD?
Eg. I'll count the washing as I put it in the washing machine.
Count pavement lines when walking on sidewalk
Count the tiles in the shower
Now that I've written that down I've just realised it doesn't sound very normal😧😧😧[/QUOTE]
This is me! I can't watch a movie on a DVD player as I count the numbers on the player.
I count the lines on the road when I'm not driving and the posts on the side of the road at night.
I have ocd but it's a side effect of my bipolar.

While I'm not OCD, I definitely love things a certain way and a messy house stresses me out.
- my house is vacuumed numerous times in the week. I have dark carpet that shows every dot.
- mopping is done several times a week (my tiles are light colour and look gross if I don't)
- DS rarely has tin food. I cook up meals for him and freeze them for days I'm running late.
- DS has a bath every single night.
- I like sitting in a clean house. All toys in the toy corner.
- DS has his bedding washed every week, ours ever 2 weeks.
- towels are washed at least once a week, more if I have time.
- clutter stresses me out. DH doesn't feel the same way.
- bathrooms are cleaned every week
In saying all that, of DS is sick or I've had a big week I'm ok to let it go, for a bit!

I vacuum once maybe twice a day, but only the heavy traffic areas. I have a thing about surfaces they must be clean. Try to de clutter as much as I can although it's fighting an uphill battle!
I can't sit down and relax in the evening or leave for work in the morning with a messy house.

I think all of this depends on what people consider messy. My house is not messy (to me) however, some people might think it's messy according to their standard. A house does not have to be a show home to be tidy IMO.

I definitely aim for the show home look. Cushions in the correct spot, throw rug neatly folded on the couch, all kitchen benches cleared except for fruit bowl. I love that look.
I like to keep all kids toys in their rooms. I don't like having kids toys throughout the house.

Out fruit bowl is on the dining table, along with some paperwork.
I grew up in a house that my mother kept immaculately. I don't want my kids to think that a house is more important to me than they are. I'm not saying you do, but that is how I felt growing up with a mother who was always cleaning and everything had a spot. I want my kids to feel comfortable at home. If they bring toys out, they have to take them back when they go upstairs for bath and bed or they know I will confiscate. They put their dishes in the sink when they're finished. If they spill something, no big deal, they wipe it up.
