This past weekend I reorganized my apartment for the, no lie, probably 6th time in 4 months. My fiance is away on deployment and well, I tend to organize and reorganize everything, I want to make things look and function better…over and over again. I think I love it, then I think it can be better, so inevitably, it changes…again.
Every time I change our home, I get all excited, take pictures and send them to him! Here’s how the conversation goes…
ME: “I really love it this time! It’s definitely staying this way!”
FIANCE: “Looks great babe, we will see what it looks like when I get home. lol.”
And…as always, he’s right, because as you guessed it…I change it again! Luckily, he is a clean and neat freak like myself so, my actions aren’t as bad as they may seem.
BUT, I may have come to a conclusion as to why I do this… I read a quote the other day and it seemed to be one of the reasons for my madness.
“She knew she loved him when ‘home’ went from being a place to being a person.” ~E.Leventhal. I thought, well, this quote absolutely nailed it on the head. I’m trying to make our home more “homey,” cozy, and comfortable…but nothing seems to suffice. Nothing will ever be in the right spot, nothing will ever make our home more comfortable, and nothing will ever be considered home until he is here with me.
So, FOR NOW I have truly made our home as comfortable as possible until he returns, but if you’re an organizational neat spaz like myself then know these few tips…
So, as we all have heard before…home is where the heart is and well, my heart is with my fiance overseas. Therefore, home will not be same until he is back in my arms because together is our favorite place to be.
However, in the meantime, my fiance is a trooper for supporting my organizational addiction. When he comes home…he may need my help finding everything, but that’s okay… because WE WILL FINALLY BE HOME TOGETHER.
I LOVE DOING LIFE WITH YOU
**Does anyone else organize like me? How do you feel when you’re done? How does your significant other feel when you go into spaz mode?”

There is no ‘I’ in team! How many times have you heard that in your…
