....because I'm perfectly capable of labeling myself. I suffer from a moderate case of anal retentiveness. There... I said it! It's not something I am very proud of. I fact, I am definitely envious of people who have a more casual approach to the stuff of life. I wish I could just put something in a cupboard and be done with it, or, even better, just leave things lying around and not let them bother me. But I have a compelling need for order which means that the said item does not just get put in a cupboard or on a shelf, it gets placed in a container in the cupboard with other same or similar items and, more often than not, the container will have a label which categorizes the contents. So very sad, I know!
I said that I "suffer" from this condition, but the real suffering is probably done by my family. Exhibit A above - each child has their own basket for the various items that, in other homes, with better adjusted mothers, would just lie around.
Here are further examples of my love for labeling. I won't show you any more evidence from my own home lest you decide to have me committed. However, when doing some research for my post, I noticed that I am not the only one with a love for labeling. There is a whole world full of people like me....take a look...
These pictures make my heart sing!
I am envious of those people who can just shove something in a cupboard without a second thought. But if you are one of those, don't feel too smug, because apparently the opposite of anal retentive is anal expulsive and that doesn't sound so great either.
Maybe I'll stick with my label!
If you are one of us, you might be in need of some storage containers or baskets....
