So I was jejely sitting on my own when my husband came into the living room to ask me what happened to my toothbrush…it wasn’t in the holder. I said “oh I put it in the garbage” – its time to change it. And he goes how do you figure if the bristles aren’t frayed and stuff. I was like well it takes me about 2.5 to 3 months to finish a tube of toothpaste so once toothpaste finishes, then the lifespan of the toothbrush is over. Anyway he went on to talk about how would I know when to dispose the toothbrush if he was sharing my toothpaste. Fortunately in the last 10 years I have never had to share my toothpaste because I either lived alone or whoever I lived with doesnt use the same toothpaste – my parents use Crest, my husband uses sensodyne and I only ever use colgate total (anything else really gets on my nerves)!
My husband went on to detail some of my habits such as changing sheets & duvet every 2 weeks and towels once a week and how he thinks I am a little too meticulous with stuff. And I am like I actually am lax with the towels and sheets as I went from every 3 days for towels to 1 week and every week for sheets to 2 weeks. He of course clarified that he thinks its nice I pay attention to stuff but he noticed I am never even a day late with it.
It actually got me thinking maybe I have some sort of organisational OCD. I do not consider myself a neat freak by any standards but I am also particular about separating clothes into darks, lights and whites and putting them in the machine without mixing etc.
So please i have questions – feel free to answer honestly we are not judging.
1. How ofte do you change your toothbrush?
2. How often do you change your sheets?
3. How often do you change your towels?
4. Are you satisfied with the frequency with which you do these things or do you think you should change the timing?
PS: June started off on a high note, news that I waited to receive the entire May came in on the 1st.
