not for me. i have severe ocd and i tend to get stuck in specific areas for long periods of time leaving the rest of the house a wreck. Luckily a lot of my obsessivness about cleaning is directed toward the lving room, but sometimes it goes to strange places like the closet under the stairs or the hallway and stays for weeks. My therapist is trying to figure out how to make an exposure out of this situation but since it happens so sparratically and is sometimes beneficial, its hard to do cuz she doesn't want me to stop caring about cleaning alltogether.
I could agree with that. I feel like crap my house looks it and when I'm okay my house is SPOTLESS Lol.
Quoting Simple-Beauty:No. I clean when I'm stressed or mad, but I also clean because I like order and cleanliness. I'd say it's messy more often when I'm content/happy, because I'm not in a "must be in control" state of mind, and taking it out on my house, lol.
sometimes. i know i sure havent been feeling the greatest and housework is slacking. then there are times im just too busy playing with the kids, or not in the house and housework slacks
Oh wow I don't think so, in that case I would almost always be happy because my house is almost always clean.
Quoting PeaceMuch:Messy as in filthy/nasty, yes I would assume that person was depressed. Just normal messy, no. That's normal in a happy home imo. :)
Agree, sometimes in the weekends when my dh is off we go out and I do not worry about cleaning so my house has toys here and toys there, in no way am I depressed or mad on those days lol.
Not really. It is a reflection of how busy I have been. If it is a disaster, it means I haven't been home and haven't had the time to clean it... it's really as simple as that.
