The OCD Instability

OCD
– Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.
Now
my Dad loves to have everything meticulously clean and proper. A shoe should be
in shoe-rack, the comb should be near the mirror , all the body lotions and oil
should be arranged in one line according to height, increasing or decreasing
.
My mother is just the opposite, it’s just that she has too much in her plate.
With
hungry brats screaming for attention, dog chewing up the door mat, leaves all
over the garden, Dad asking for coconut oil, the comb would land on dinning
table and Salt-Pepper can on dressing table.

My
sister cannot wear anything that’s not ironed and when I  say ironed I mean – 
steamy iron. Even during fashion-emergencies when we need to get ready in a
jiffy, she would leisurely take her shirt and slowly iron it until she’s
surrounded by steam. How she manages not to set her clothes on fire, is beyond
my understanding.
My funda is pretty simple

And
because of this, she is the forced official Iron-er of our household. I
actually used to bribe her to iron my clothes.


My brother was obsessed about decorating the wall, like this
Yup that’s his room
 which obviously freaked my Mom out 😛

  1. Phew. So much of orderliness….would probably drive me insane. I am pretty organised though and am also the official " Iron-er" of the house hold. Though I prefer the term, Iron Man 😛

  2. The one OCD I have is checking if I have taken my keys and locked my front door. Guess we all have some shades of it. Your sister sounds like my dad, when it comes to ironing 🙂

  3. Sounds like your household is very interesting. I had to put my foot down when Baby tried to arrange food in the pantry by type, then alphabetical order. She had just finished rearranging my bookshelves in a similar way. She was 10.

  4. Creative and an eclectic mix of people in your family, love your mom's nature. I too leave things in the wrong places and my husband keeps pulling his hair out.

  5. I love your brother's obsession!! I want to do that to.
    Thankfully my husband is a messy guy. Otherwise I couldn't have been as lazy as I am. I'm pretty balanced when it comes to cleanliness… thanks to my ability to sit on the couch for hours 😉

  6. I like some semblance of order like there is a place for everything and everything has its place.But I am not fastidious in arranging according to heights or color.But then there are different folks,different strokes.No two are alike.
