I know that sometimes people say that I can a little overboard with certain things. And I agree that I do have my ways about certain things. There are just some things that I think should and should not be done in a home that prides itself on refinement. For example, I don’t wear shoes in my home. Guests can leave them at the door in exchange for some socks that they’d find in either the male basket or female basket. Some people laugh at me, however, I just feel that what you wear on your feet outside should not be worn in your home. Now, I come from dirty New York streets and would never want anything that I step on out there in my home. LOL. So, when I started to keep my own home (wherever I lived when I moved from my parents), I did not like shoes being worn in my house. I do have other “antsy” customs and ways on how I keep my home and certain things that are just not allowed or must be done, ex: no street clothes on the bed, only clean dishes on the “clean dishes side” of the sink, no dirty dishes should be left in the sink (especially over night or if you leave the house), wash your hands as soon as you come in or even open the front doors, and so many more that sometimes I drive people absolutely crazy. I have a friend that calls and every time they call, I am cleaning my bathroom (as I do at least twice a day LMAO). They say, “What are you doing Sci, Cleaning your bathroom?” LMAO However, I will not stop!!! I recently went to someone’s home and their floor looked like it hadn’t been cleaned in a very long time and their bathroom, well, it nauseates me to even talk about it. This was a woman too. And I know that woman are traditionally known as being cleaner than men, but this was way out of bounds. This wasn’t “Oh, I missed a day or two.” This was more like “I missed a year or two.” Now, don’t get me wrong, sometimes, I may miss a few days of mopping if it doesn’t need to be done, I’d just get on hands and knees and clean some problem areas. Keep in mind that my whole house besides one area rug is bamboo and that’s a lot of damn mopping! I do slip up sometimes on dusting. By that I mean than I may only get to it once a week. Then it drives me crazy. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with wanting your home to look like t could be in a home magazine. LOL Don’t worry, I’m not crazy, just passionate. LOL. What are some customs that you keep in your Queendom / Kingdom that maybe we can all learn from and incorporate in ours?
