I am notorious for being a perfectionist. I am always on time. I make lists and check things off. I am meticulously clean and neat. I never leave the house without my bed made and the sink free of dishes. I exercise everyday and am strict with my diet. I wake at 5:30 every morning and go to bed at 9:30 every night. I always get work done ahead of time. I never let the gas in my car get below a quarter of a tank and I always turn lights off when I leave a room. I don’t see this as a mental health issue. It is my nature and I wouldn’t want it any other way. I like being in control of the things I can. This is me.
As I write this, I realize that I sound absolutely uptight, boring and predictable. One might even be thinking, “I would hate to be her kid”, but actually, I am quite relaxed, I laugh all the time and I am fun to be around. I am a great mum and never put my crazy expectations on my kids. They were the exact opposite of me as children, fabulously disorganized and totally free sprits. As adults, they still can’t find their phones or keys that are sitting right in front of them, and I adore them with all my heart.
These word challenges are the greatest. One never know whats going to come pouring out.
