Hi, My Name is Ruth and I am a Washer

I have a problem and I can't stop.
I am a WASHER.

I have to wash.

I can't go to bed without dishes being washed.
If I ever do, I feel so unbelievably guilty that I didn't get them done.

I have to wash all the dishes before leaving the house.
I don't want to come home to dirty dishes.

I have old lady hands from washing my hands and dishes.
I hate wearing gloves.

Honeyman and Kiddo have learned if they take something out of a cupboard, don't set it on the floor and than put it back in the cupboard.
I will go get it out and wash the bottom of whatever and the bottom of the cupboard.

They think I am odd.
But, whatever touched the floor and that isn't sanitary.

At Christmastime, my sister and nieces come to make cookies and I am constantly making sure they have washed their hands, especially when one of them has to text during cookie making.
They laugh at me.

But, you have to be clean.

Now, I must go WASH something.


  1. Don't feel bad, I am the same way. Now go wash something.

  2. OT, I did. Now kitty has a clean litter box.

  3. oh you so remind me of my aunt! She's always washing our dishes during christmas!

  4. You would have a wonderful time washing at my house!

  5. I have one word for you: My grandma was the same way, thankfully this sort of thing is not hereditary.

  6. Nutschell,
    I do that at Thanksgiving. As soon as we eat, it's dishes time.

    Ilene, you could help and we'd both have fun

    Alex, LOL. I wish it was hereditary so Kiddo would say " hey, why don't I wash all the dishes for you?" Sadly I don't think that's ever going to happen.

  7. I'm not just a washer, I'm a cleaner. I can't relax until everything is back into place and cleaned to where it is supposed to be. Get the Neutrogena Hand Repair cream though; after all that scrubbing, it works miracles!

  8. mma los angeles, Thanks for the advice. I do hate my old lady hands.
