I’ve discovered the cure for incipient OCD

I honestly believe any one of these will work, but in combination, they’re incredibly powerful. At least in my case . . .

1) An enormous old house;

2) A “few” boxes that have been in various storage units since 2008;

3) Several inches of snow and plenty of steps to the front and back doors;

4) Hip replacement surgery.

If you doubt the potency of this combination, here’s a short testimonial. There are dishes (and a few other items that don’t belong there), on my kitchen counters. There are dishes in the sink, the dishwasher, in a partially emptied cardboard box in the foyer, and many more in the attic. A toolbox and electric drill rest on the rug next to the coffee table. A broom, a mop, a duster and a vacuum are “taking a break” in various rooms. The snowshovel’s filed a grievance with the union.

  1. Keep it up, Jane. You’ll get that house whipped into shape soon, and like your hip, as good as new because it has all the wonderful characteristics of an old house. ~nan
