It's really not because I'm OCD...it's because I loathe housework. I hate it so much that I have to make myself a schedule for it. Mondays I do this, Tuesdays that...and so on. I even went and joined Flyladyto help (and she does, if you stick to it!).
That's why the gift that I got from my daughter was so appropriate. They worked on them at school and she'd tell me about things that she'd done (sanding, painting) without giving away the surprise. Last year they made a flower out of wood; it was....uh...pretty.
So, this years gift I was expecting be as....fabulous. You know, that gift where you go "Oh wow, a toaster....I....uh....love it!" Meanwhile you're thinking: a *&#ing toaster??
Not this time however. She made me a little plaque-type thing...it's supposed to be me holding a bucket of cleaning supplies. But that's not the best part. What the bucket SAYS is the best part...."I hate housework"
I can't even begin to describe how perfect this gift is!! I love it, dear daughter!! Thank you so much!!!
I have a wish list over at Amazon and have been asked about it...it's kinda odd to just put a link and say "buy things for me" - but I think that since I've been asked, I may as well put the link out there -
