Possessive Over My Kitchen
Are you like me? Are you possessive when it comes to YOUR kitchen?
Here on Lillie Mae Acres, that's just the way it is. When we invite guests over I usually do all the cooking. I very seldom ask guests to bring anything because I like to have it all preplanned and organized with NO surprises.
I have every kitchen bowl, pan, tool, etc just where I want it. My cabinets and drawers are organized according to my wants and needs.
I can't help it, it just messes me up for someone to get in there and start asking questions, going through my cabinets, etc. Can you tell that this has recently happened to me? I'm venting and you're the lucky set of ears (in this case eyes).
There is always an exception to every rule, right? The exception to this rule is my mom. She's helped in my kitchen before and it didn't bother me, I guess because I don't consider her a "guest" or "company". When they're coming over, sometimes I go all out and get fancy with my china sometimes I don't.
So here it is! Some of you may say that I should be glad to accept help in the kitchen while others of you may agree with me. We're all different. Here's another shocker for you. I also like to be the ONLY one to fold the laundry. I just like MY WAY of organising the linen closet too.
There, I did it! I told you just how POSSESSIVE I am, and I don't plan to go to a therapist about it either because I'm HAPPY just the way I am. Whatever works well, just keep doing it.
Have a good weekend.
