WOD Challenge 7-28-22 He Says I’m Anal

Well, maybe I am, but is it my fault I want a sense of order in this crazy, upside-down world we are living in?

So I want the towels laid on the edge of the sink, not wadded up and thrown on the counter. Don’t put the dirty dishes in the drain where the clean dishes are, or better yet, rinse them off and stick them in the dishwasher…it’s right there! And for heaven sakes, don’t put large paper plates in my kitchen trash, put them in the trash on the patio! Is that so much to ask?

I do not feel guilt for being the way I am. The world is out of control, I have to have some sense of control in my own little world. I follow traffic laws, but no one else seems to care. We went to look at a Jeep tonight (unfortunately during rush hour) and I never saw so much lawlessness and rude, hateful behavior in one hour as I did tonight. I was in a totally bad mood by the time we got to the restaurant. It was blazing hot, traffic was backed up on every freeway, and people were trying to pass on the shoulder, cutting people off, honking at others who did the same while holding their phones in front of their faces, motorcycles driving at a high rate of speed in between cars…the list goes on and on.

I really needed that margarita (it WAS date night after all) by the time we got to Frijoles!

The Jeep was a hot mess, no ac, mushy brakes, loose suspension, twenty-five years old and he wanted 11,000 dollars??? We’ll keep looking thank you.

I could have talked about my real causes of guilt, but I’ve talked about that a dozen times. I don’t apologize for my need to control my corner of the universe, do you? I’m the butt of the joke in my family because everyone knows how I am and they make fun of me. Thank you for listening to my rant. 😉

At least he puts his clothes in the hamper and not on the floor next to it!

PS: Everyone I know knows I’m married to a good egg. He cooks, he cleans, he is calm when I am stressed and vice versa. He does almost all of the yard work. We are a good team, but I have my little quirks. I know we aren’t all perfect, but if he has any with me, he hasn’t shared them. Except maybe I talk to much 🤣😂

  1. Sorry to hear about things with the Jeep this time, it is because there is something better out there! Love this road rage out there makes my head hurt and grateful I am not driving anymore!! How does Dave handle it? Because driving the RV during those times would drive me insane! About being anal I understand this because I understand you but I also know that you can handle the jokes because you have for years!! But I know that it doesn’t mean that it does not get on were last good nerve!

    • Aww, I was just venting, really 😁😉
      The lawlessness makes me feel like we’re living in the wild, wild, west! No cops anywhere, and lawbreakers everywhere. Dave was cool, he sees it everyday but I was shocked and appalled 😱
      Anyway, I did go buy some vacuum seal storage bags, to help with packing and storing our out of season clothes. And I just joined another RV club, because the two we are members of now should help with deep discounts on staying at rv parks, gas, and lots of other services. Some services cost extra, but we will worry about adding those later. I just want to be as prepared as possible before we ever hit the road.
