A Little OCD

I've decided I'm going to start doing some blog challenges to get me thinking and writing. So here goes with the first one-what are the last 5 things you do before you leave the house each morning. Well, during the summer, not much, but during the school year I definitely have a routine I do not deviate from.

1. Make sure Jose is ready- hair combed, face washed from breakfast, socks and shoes on, etc...

2. Wash the dishes...I can't stand to come home to dirty dishes in the sink.

3. Straighten the covers on the bed. Now the bed will have already been made, but Jose usually rumples the covers. I have to smooth them out before I go.

4. Check to make sure the blow dryer is unplugged and put away.

5. Make sure the coffee pot and stove are off....not just look...but actually touch the knobs to make sure they are all the way off. I have this fear that one day I am going to come home and find the house burned down.

Oh, and once the door is locked, I always have to double check it.....I'm just a little obsessive when it comes to my morning routine and boy does my day start off wrong when it is disrupted.

I am lucky to get out the door with my makeup on in the mornings!

Yep. My kitchen sink has to be free of dirty dishes also!!

I also like to have a clean kitchen and it vacuumed but that doesn't always happen! LOL
