Do you think my dog actually cares if his food and water dishes get switched? Its not like I imagine him looking at the dishes and thinking "Is this woman crazy?? I can't possibly live like this!" But it makes me breathe easier when they're in the *right* place.
I have a very specific order to walking through the grocery store. It drives Coach nuts when he goes with me, and he'll frequently decide to take the cart off in a different direction because he "forgot" something on another isle. If ever I have decided to switch it up a little and live dangerously.... I feel very off kilter for the rest of the day.
Again, at the grocery store (what is it with that place??)..... when buying eggs, I have to actually pick up each individual egg in the carton to check for breaks. I just know the first time I do only a quick glance will be the day I go home with half a dozen broken eggs.
There also is a very specific order to my silverware drawer. Jock has never managed to get it right, and he's been doing the dishes for years now. YEARS, people. I always have to go back behind him and fix it all. I think he does it on purpose, hoping to get out of doing the dishes the next time. At some point, he will realize that is a battle he will never win, as I can out-stubborn him forever. Where does he think he got that lovely little personality trait from, anyway?
The rest of my house, however, is NOT organized. And it doesn't bother me. AT ALL.
