I think I am a pretty typical Type A personality. I like things orderly and in their place. I am punctual. In certain situations, I don't like to delegate, because I find it less stressful to just do things myself. This personality type does not necessarily compliment the life that Monkey Toes and I have opened ourselves up to. Having a house full of children, I have had to challenge myself to adapt, and not always very successfully. I find myself more at ease and more able to enjoy life when my house is in order or a "mess" is cleaned up. I'm always a little envious of those who live by the phrase, "the mess isn't going anywhere, so you may as well enjoy your _____________" (family, weather, etc.). I tend to think, "yeah, the mess isn't going anywhere and that's precisely why I need to clean it up now." Don't misunderstand me, my house is far from perfect. As I type this, I have Raman Noodles stuck to my floor (I usually wait until they dry-up a little. They're easier to clean up that way) and a mountain of laundry to tackle. My hallway is lined with kids books (an obstacle course) and there are tiny pieces of paper that keep showing up from my children trying to make confetti. So in an attempt to take a little stress off of me and hopefully begin teaching my kids some responsibility, I have given them a chore chart to follow.
