The first definition of anal retentive according to the urban dictionary is: A term used to refer to a person who feels a need to be in control of all aspects of his or her surroundings. Hmmmm, my recently retired husband doesn’t take it that far . . . I don’t think. Since he retired he has been doing projects around the house. Some . . . most . . . have to do with organizing something or other. Yesterday it was the 300 plus CD’s he’s been collecting since 8 tracks and vinyl records become obsolete. We now have a bookshelf with all the CD’s in alphabetical order by artist, except for the genre’s, that are kept separate like Jazz, Classical, Christmas. It made me nervous. I kept wandering into the room waiting to see what “stuff” of mine was no longer going to have a home. To his credit he put all his CD’s in order, found room for the DVD’s and . . . left a shelf for my music books. Mind you, said book shelf is in the “music room”. I was waiting to melt down when my music books ended up no where near the piano or guitar. Alas that did not happen. I was worried for no reason. I must admit I am just dying to go in there and put a “Billy Joel” CD in the middle of “The Who”. I will resist that temptation. I think I will enjoy the moment and breathe . . . until the next project.
