A bit of a messy post, please bear with me. But this is the first thought on my mind for the SoCS prompt: brush. I have an OCD problem. Especially with my bathroom. It has to be clean, spick n span.

Couple of weeks ago I had a bad flu. I was isolated in my room. The third day, I had difficulty walking till the bathroom due to my fatigue. But when I did gather some strength and manage to move and reached there, a patch of dirt on the floor caught my eye. I took a brush and slowly scrubbed the floor till it was clean. Listening to the scrubbing sound, my husband shouted from outside β€œFor heaven’s sake can you please stop cleaning! It makes me doubt if you are really sick at all, and if it’s all just psychological. Can’t you just let it be?Cant you just ignore it?” It was not a complaint but a call of concern! Heartfelt concern!

I brushed off his comment, and slowly brushed the stain with the floor brush making lesser noise πŸ˜…! I am trying hard to get over this, but I think, till the last pinch of my strength, I am sure I’ll clean up my bathroom πŸ˜…πŸ˜…

In response to SoCS prompt for this week; brush

  2. OCD too, huh? πŸ˜‚
    Do you also follow a pattern for everything? Like lists? Want everything in even, or odd numbers? The clothes to be folded in perfect squares? Okay. I better stop. Revealing too much about my craziness here. I just got a bit over excited knowing that you too have OCD πŸ˜…

    1. Even numbers, I like even over odd!! πŸ˜‚oh my God, this reply will be a long one! Clothes in perfect squares, I have got over it.. thanks to my kids.. they make sure they don’t arrange properly

      lists!!!!! Don’t know if you can relate, but I had to pour it out here… I have travel lists , to do lists – separate ones for today, this week, the month … and shopping lists… I am laughing typing this.. shopping lists I segregate based on the shops I visit and which shop comes in the route first. And the super market list is usually written based on the arrangement of products in the store. I don’t have to revisit that line again pushing the trolley. The fruit n veggie list is written based on what goes in the bag first .. carrots first n tomatoes grapes at the end. And usually the last store is the medical store. By the time I reach here I would have lost my list in the various shopping bags. πŸ™†β€β™€οΈMy hubby is used to it now and he messages his medicine list to my Whatsapp!!! πŸ˜‚
      Oh my God! I am over excited too! For people with complete opposite mentality it’s very difficult to relate. I am careless too (I lose my lists) and organised too (can’t do without them) They just dont understand! πŸ˜ƒ

      1. I like even too, except for 1 and 3 πŸ˜„
        God! That’s totally relatable πŸ™ŒπŸ½πŸ™ŒπŸ½πŸ™ŒπŸ½πŸ˜‚
        I make a lot of to do lists which mostly end up as not done lists at the end of the day. But I need them. I can’t do without them. Same here πŸ˜„ I am careless and clumsy as hell, but love organising and arranging stuff. I clean when I am anxious as it helps me to calm down. My husband found it weird at first. Now when he sees me anxious, he says β€œmaybe try cleaning the kitchen. You will feel better” πŸ˜…

    1. Yes Lakshmi.. first of all thanks for dropping by and reading my post 😊means a lot.
      Yes it’s difficult for people to understand OCD – obsessive compulsive disorder.. my husband struggles to understand too .. I realise that cleaning when sick is not needed, but can’t hold myself back ☺️I’m slowly trying to get over my OCD habits 😊

  3. I read this post. I found it a cute. I liked the way you husband is concerned about you.
    Well I hope you are fine now. And there’s nothing to worry.

    OCD I’ve heard about it a lot but your description made it more clear to me. It’s not at all a messy post. It was fun reading the same.

    Take care!

    1. Yaa Rashmi 😊he was concerned and it’s difficult to deal with OCD people for others who can’t relate .. I realise n accept 😊 trying to get over it one after the other. 😊

      Glad to know it was fun .. was wondering if using the word β€œ bathroom” in a post was ok ☺️☺️.


  4. I can totally relate. I cannot go to bed UNTIL everything in the house is clean. It stresses me out waking up in a messy house. I always clean when I am sick too, drives everyone crazy! I totally got an issue with carpet. I have to vacuum. Even if it is midnight, I will vacuum before going to bed.

      1. Yeah! Trueeee!

        Do you get extremely irritated, uneasy when someone picks something and keeps it somewhere else? Like excuse me! The bottle is supposed to be at my left at a 90 degree angle. How dare you move it to 70 degree? Now I can’t focus!🀣🀣
