joeh; it's excellent advice, (with a 'c'), although a few OCD people might not agree.
Thank you for correcting my spelling, spell check does not when it is a real word. Just so you know, I am 71 years old and have been a terrible speller for 67 years, I am not liable to ever improve at this point so corrections will not help...kind of like pointing out a stutter to a stutterer or a limp to someone with a bad foot. It is not laziness, or stupidity, it is just a disability that I have never been able to correct. Yes, it is a pet peave of mine.
Please don't be offended or insulted. The fault is mine, sometimes I just can't help myself.
It is a scab I have that I hate when it is picked. I have a related post soon that addresses this, don't you be offended, I still think you are a very nice, bright lady and valued blog friend. Did you miss the misspelling of peeve? I suspect you just let it slide...LOL.
Isn't that the truth!
Sharon; true enough for me :)
Works for me!!
fishducky; me too, although I haven't seen any episodes lately, I'll have to wait for the reruns.
Oh yes that'll work ;)
Jimmy; it sure does work, my clutter doesn't look half as bad after seeing one of those houses.
Hell yes.....works ever time.
only slightly confused; it does work, until I see one of those OCD shows where they scrub and bleach all day every day, but I've learned to ignore those a bit. Okay, a lot. I tell myself they're harming their health with all that bleach and anxiety.
Yes, it is all relative.
Andrew; about 99.9% of life is relative. You have to find what works for you personally and ignore people who tell you to do things their way.
What a wonderful perspective. (Except if you have looked at a hoarders program and thought 'that doesn't look too bad to me'.)
Elephant's Child; I have seen a house or two that would put a hoarder to shame, not so much in terms of clutter and amassed things, but the filth and stench.
That's a far better house-cleaning tool...far better than any vacuum cleaner. I might just put "Hoarders" on continual re-wind!! :)
Lee; this is why my brand new vacuum cleaner is gathering dust. I might give it a run this weekend though. Under the bed where Lola has left half her fur.
Okay...I've done that!I also used to ask my kids about their friends' houses. "Is it as messy as ours?" I was secretly pleased when occasionally, one of them would answer, "Worse!"
Val; I've never asked my kids that, but I did ask is it nice there? mostly regarding atmosphere, I wouldn't have wanted them going to friend's places if there was fighting or any other tenseness.
LOVE it and think I will go check the schedule for the show's airtime. Really by comparison, my house is splendid.
Arkansas Patti; it hasn't been on here in Australia for some time and it's usually on later at night, being not suitable for children I suppose.
I love your artwork and follow you pots this very minute!ซอมบี้
