ever gotten slightly ocd and protective of your home for a few days after cleaning it, stooping to pick up little bits of dust or dirt on the floor or counters? i get like this after a few hours spent cleaning. for a couple of days afterward, each bit of dirt or dust is like an affront to my work, and not tolerated. after about 48 hrs though, this feeling dies off, diminishing to a literal or figurative shrugging of the shoulders and eventually not even noticing, at least until next month's round. weird how i can let cleanliness more or less slide and procrastinate house cleaning, yet i get so gung ho while doing it and so proctective and vigilant for a few days after the fact.
