Miss KT has always had difficulty with changes; in plans, in expectations...you name it. For the last few years, this has manifested in excessive organization of her "space," and an increasing frustration with my supposed disinterest in being organized. It's not a lack of interest, it's a lack of time and energy...but I digress. She got home about a month ago. In that time, I've had surgery, the panther boys and the senior cats have been in a p*$$ing contest - literally - in the kitchen, and she got the notice that the college she attends is closing - not closing - closing - not closing- closing. Hubby has been working 12 hour days, 6 days a week, and he's tired. Life is not going exactly as planned, and her inability to "roll with it," is making her irritable, short-tempered, fussy...you name it. She's miffed with Hubby because he doesn't button and zip his pants before putting them in the dirty clothes basket, and because he has the most amazing collection of random stuff. She's ticked at me because I haven't sorted things in a little wire storage basket in the kitchen, and because I had (GASP) things in the cupboard that had passed their expiration dates. She does laundry constantly. She has been keeping my kitchen counter cleared and dishes done. Yesterday, she cleaned out and organized the fridge and the freezer, and one of the kitchen cupboards. Today, she's working on the other cupboard and the little wire storage thing, and the kitchen floor. Tomorrow, she plans to scrub the stove. Don't get me wrong; I'm thrilled that the kitchen is finally getting cleaned. It just seems to me a bit obsessive to have everything perfectly neat and organized. Is it Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), control issues, working off nervous energy, or what?
