Today’s post from the keyboard of Verily Sherrilee.
Nobody has ever accused me of being OCD about cleaning. I can leave a paper towel on the dining room floor for days and just walk around it (especially if a kitty is sitting on it). I can put a sweatshirt on a chair and ignore it for a week. Dishes stack up in the sink just like at everybody else’s house.
But many years ago I got the idea that I should make my bed every day. No matter what. Now it’s such an ingrained habit that the room looks bad to me before the bed gets made up. Even when I was sick last month, in the morning I made the bed and unless I was going to take a serious nap, I sat on top of the comforter while reading or watching tv.
So it was a little startling to look into the Young Adult’s room over the weekend to see that the laundry baskets had thrown up all over her bed. I tried to channel my mom; I pulled the door closed and walked away!
Do you have an every day habit?
