    It depends what it is. I can range from 1 to 10, depending on the particular task. On average, I am probably a 5-ish.

    Depending on what it is.In my younger years(he he),I use to be a 10.Then I got so xhausted from it all,I let up on myself and started to enjoy life more.

    Since I’ve realized that it is impossible to be perfect, I just give things my version of perfect, which is simply my best shot.

  4. Gary says:

    I’m similar to Pam. I used to be a 9 but have learned to let things go a little and live a little more.

    I am with Morocco on this one!

    I’ve gotten better with this. I can actually walk past a small mess and it won’t freak me out. Ask Jason and he’ll tell you that’s a lie! Seriously though I am so much better. I always thought, a clean perfect home is a happy home. Really a home full of love is a happy home. With certain things I do like pretty perfect but I’m starting to be okay with everything not needing to be in place all the time. I used to be like this with like sports or anything that required skill, if I wasn’t perfect I wouldn’t play. Being less perfect is a lot more fun!!!

    One man’s perfection is another woman’s 5 on a 10 scale.

    It’s taken quite a while but I’ve finally gotten my Mrs. to lower her expectations.

    House don’t need to be hospital clean, just sanitary. We can clean like we have OCD when all the kids are gone.

    I used to be a 10 but since I had kids I have gotten better. I am probably a 5 now.

  9. Joy says:

    I’m only like this with certain things. If blinds are crooked or a picture is hanging “off.” That kind of thing really bugs me. I have to wear matching socks. I need things “even.” Just little stuff like that but I’m not “perfect” and don’t care.

    8- I’ll be honest! I hate to admit, but I am a perfectionist. Like Nikki, I have gotten better. But I differ in I DO believe a clean home is a happier home!! If mama ain’t happy, nobody is! And I am NOT happy if my house is messy or things are not organized! I come from generations of neatfreaks, raised in a house where the dishes are done, put away, floor swept, things picked up daily.

    Eric and I just started doing a “15 min pickup” rule where before we go to bed we both go around and put things away and straighten up. I feel 10x better and happier now!! 🙂

    It depends on what it is. When I was in college I was a big perfectionist! I had to get 100%, I had to do everything just right, I couldn’t miss one class even if I was dying. I don’t care much anymore! I realized I can only do the best I can and sometimes that’s just not perfect! Everything I’ve gotten much better about. You have kids and the house being perfect seems to go out the window for awhile!

    Can I just answer with my star sign? Ok perhaps that is the cheap and easy way (I am neither and I’ll deny it till the end of days) – With myself I am probably close to analatic 15, with other things probably a 5 but I often find myself correcting skew things and arranging random items into colour co-ordinated neat piles… Right where are my pills…

  13. javajunkee says:

    depends on what it is and who is doing it. If I want the job done right I usually have to do it myself! Aint that always the way it goes?

  14. nikki says:

  15. Joy says:

    OMG!!! Okay, I’ll go over there!!! ROFLMAO!!!
