Everything is just so. In their place, lined up, stacked neatly, nothing askew.
The beds are made the way they’re supposed to be made (my way). The children’s play area is organized in a fashion that makes sense (to me). There is nothing on the coffee table (except for pen marks, thanks toddler). Remote controls are lined up by size on my desk (to keep it out of reach of the boys). On my desk sits my laptop and phone, nothing else. The shelves next to my desk are lined with books, arranged in order of read, reading, to be read next. Pens are in a pen holder.
My closet is organized by type of clothing – jackets, shirts, t-shirts (by colour, of course), pants (by length, duh), skirts, dresses, and …. you get the picture.
The kitchen counter is more or less clear, except for the coffee machine, KitchenAid, and other daily use gadgets. Pots and pans, cutlery and utensils, all have their places. I know where everything is. They never change.
When I get up in the morning, I do the exact same thing (I won’t bore you with my routine). Even the browser tabs on my computer are opened in the same order (email, Facebook, Hootsuite, Pinterest, my blog, bitly.com).
Things that are out of place annoy me. I am constantly adjusting stuff – books that are askew, couch cushions that are strewn about, toys that left that places, the coffee table that is 5 degrees off from where it should be, cups that are two inches too far from where they were.
I don’t meltdown, freak out or lose my mind when my world order isn’t perfect, or the couch is crooked (which it always is, don’t ask me why). I don’t lie awake at night wondering if something is not where it’s supposed to be, or if my routine is about to be disrupted.
I like my orderly, neat world. It’s not a disorder, is it?
If you looked inside my drawers, you would say no.
Are you a neat freak or a messy miscreant?
