    Acquisitive Personality

    I prefer to visit my mother's place -- she is a neat and clean freak, having been a nurse early in her life. Her house is airy is pleasant ... mine is cluttered and dark. I am afraid to have her over, knowing she'll start cleaning! I'm not dirty, but I don't dust, and I am...

    No Real Excuse

    I have a general dislike for it. And I don't do it as often as I should. I can't do everything, but I can do most of it. Usually, I'm scrambling because I'm having company. Particularly if it is my mom or a few other people, who would/will call me out on it. (Don't have...

    It Is Affecting My Entire Life

    I am a terrible housekeeper.  That is no exaggeration...it's a complete disgrace and my car is the same way.  The thing is, I do not intentionally let the house go all to hell.  It just does.  I never seem to notice when it is in the process of getting really bad, but I just...
