For today's Sh*t Men Say link up I don't want to throw Bradley under the bus here and say that he is a slob... but let's just say that his version of clean and my standards are very, very different.
Let's back track a tiny bit. I grew up in a small house. Six people. Three bedrooms. One bathroom. Not much room for stuff and as a family of 6 we had a lot of stuff. That also meant we did not have enough room for said stuff most of the time. We were by no means hoarders - but small space, lots of stuff made me loathe clutter.
In my world there should be a place to put everything. A closet, a shelf, a drawer, etc. This is where Bradley and I tend to differ.... Bradley views our kitchen counter as the space to drop everything when he comes home. He also feels the same way about our living room floor, his side of the bedroom, the dining room table, etc..
The other day I was giving him a hard time about not putting his things away and he had the audacity to tell me that he was not dirty, but that I was just too clean.
Too Clean?! I was not amused. I was so annoyed. I think I even threw whatever I had in my hand at the time at him... which let's be honest it was probably some of his crap I was picking up. Too Clean?! There is no such thing. In fact, if I had more time on my hands I would clean even more, because a clean home is a happy home.
Cheers to being clean!
