Am I crazy

for going home for lunch today and spending the entire time cleaning the house?

Jake called me crazy OCD lady when he found out. In my defense, we're having company over for dinner tonight, so I just wanted to make sure the house was as clean as possible. And I typically do go home for lunch every day anyways, to walk Spencer and just decompress from work because we live 3 miles from my office. Is my OCD at a whole new level?

In 45 minutes, I was able to unload the dishwasher, wipe down all the kitchen counters, put away a whole basket of laundry, wipe down 2 bathroom sinks and clean 2 toliets and swiffer vaccum the kitchen floor! I'm pretty damn proud of myself!

Hopefully I won't need to be committed for OCD anytime soon!

That is awesome. You shouldn't think of it is a OCD but more like Time management!

Haha love it! I have done the same thing before. This was my last week being able to come home for lunch. Once I'm moved I'll be too far! Oh well. I bet Spencer loves having you come by.
P.S. Did you get the package I sent you? I was worried because the place I mailed it didn't have a box :(

You are so not crazy! I did the exact same thing today, and we aren't having company until tomorrow night for dinner! I live about a mile and half from work so I also go home everyday for lunch, and it feels good to be productive. However, somedays I do just veg with the dog during lunch. Anyway, if you are committed for OCD, I'll be right behind you!

Not crazy at all! I go nuts before company comes over. I keep our place pretty clean, but I do go a little crazy before anyone comes over... :)

Not at all. When I lived closer to the office, I would do the same thing. It is a theraputic break and frees time in the evening for company, studying or other obligations.

Now I live an hour away, but I will go in a bit later to clean sometimes.
