After a hard day's work he comes home and immediately starts to straighten up the house. He will clean off any little thing that is left on the counter. He will get the antibacterial spray and start cleaning off the counters and table. He will wipe down anything and everything he can. He will then go into the bathroom and complain about 'All this hair' and start picking it up. Then he will get the swiffer out and clean all the tile floors.
Then he's off to the boys' room. If there are toys laying around that he doesn't think they need, he will trash them. Then it's on to laundry, and whatever else he can find.
Now mind you I'm home all day and keep up with the cleaning fairly well if I do say so. I will admit some days I just really don't feel like doing the dishes so they sit. But for the most part I'm a pretty good housekeeper.
But the other day I saw a wonderful episode of Dr. Phil, and I knew all my prayers would be answered. You have to click on this link and you will see what I mean.
“It’s an anxiety issue, really. You’re transitioning from one world to another and when you get there, it’s like, ‘If I can order everything real quick, then everything will be OK,’ but it’s an internal disorder that most people feel, in the form of some kind of anxiety,” Dr. Phil explains.
Joey doesn't agree with the anxiety disorder garbage but hey he's not a doctor. And Dr. Phil is, right?
So in conclusion Joey and I are different in the fact that he can't sit still if there is a mess lurking somewhere in the house and I can. He does need to just relax. But not too much, his help is wonderful. And I wouldn't want it any other way. :)
