My Hands Are So Dry

I felt really good last night, very relaxed and then BOOM!! A burst of energy like you would not believe. I began cleaning the house non-stop. I cleaned the bathrooms, took out the household trash, disinfected all the light switches, doorknobs, and doors. I switched and folded the days laundry, cleaned the kitchen and ran the dishwasher. It was nice to clean the house without any interruptions but I did feel like it wasn't absolutely clean like I didn't do my absolute best because I didn't use Windex and I didn't clean the mirrors.

My mind was racing with thoughts of what to clean next. Debating in my head over how far I should or shouldn't go. I laid in bed last night thinking I should have swept, I should have mopped. Never mind that it was 10 o'clock at night I should have done more. I could have wiped down the stove or cleaned the microwave. The list of what I should have cleaned is so long much longer than the list of what I have done. With Swine Flu upon us along with every other kind of super bug illness; Swine Flu, Bird Flu, Winter Flu, it all spells the same thing *GERMS*!!

Germs spread by people, inconsiderate people who go out to public places giving no thought to healthy people who's only fault is that they are out enjoying their lives. I should have done more with my time, my family is worth it. I love my clean and shiny life. I should have done more, my hands are so dry.

  3. Hey, I just found your blog the other day and I'd say I'm excited to find another mom with OCD, but that's kind of sadistic, don't you think? Who would be excited that someone suffers from OCD...? lol!
