Why do I do that? Am I the only one?

We had just a few dishes (couple of plates and some silverware) from lunch. I decided to wash them real quick. I ended up wiping down the whole kitchen. It did not need it. I do that all the time. Am I the only one who does that? Wipe down the kitchen even when it does not need it?

  • I just always think my kitchen needs an extra swipe too. Even if it's clean...I just feel like things settle on my countertops, dust etc and I just LIKE a squeaky clean kitchen area. There is always SOMETHING. Kids get tea..they drip. Kids run water they splatter everything up...it drives me nuts, YES. I wipe...all the time. I gripe about this too now and then,:D.

  • Definitely not the only one. I went to rinse dishes and put them in the dishwasher and ended up taking some off the table which meant the whole table got cleaned, do a few of the larger dishes by hand, and cleaned the sink as well as the entire kitchen counter, the microwave, and a quick wipedown of the exposed surfaces in the fridge.

  • I am itching to go mop the kitchen floor. I just mopped last night after the kids went to bed. It is not dirty. Grrr
