For those who don't have 'icky' houses
I feel a little defensive right now, mainly because I cannnot live in any kind of disorder or lack of beauty. I have always been this way. I would stay up all night if I had to and tidy things up. Maybe I wouldn't clean! but I would straighten and wipe things down. I have stayed up to the wee hours organizing my closet.
It just does something to my psyche to have to look at mess. I must have something harmonious to focus on at all times.
It's not about money either, when I made minimum wage I had to scrounge more and pick a lot of wildflowers but I still had beauty and order.
It's not about decorating or being organized although they tend to follow beauty. And I am DEFINITLEY not saying that anyone who has a messy, disorganized or unfinished house is lacking anything.
I've been snidely called Martha for the last ten years by nearly everyone who comes over.
Anyone else similar?
