I am a bit OCD about one thing, okay maybe a couple of things, but my biggest OCD moment is ensuring that all of the windows are covered when darkness falls upon the Earth each night. I have always been someone who will tack up a towel or blanket on a window if no curtains or blinds are there because I just do not like the idea that it’s dark out there and light in here.

Chances are that there are only wild life, such as the three deer who frequent my yard, staring into the windows at me, but I don’t care. In my mind all of my windows must be covered because that makes me feel safe and secure. I love that there are so many blind options for windows and blinds tend to be something I would be more apt to purchase over curtains for the main house windows.

The reason I much prefer blinds over curtains is because they are quick and easy to pull up and put down, while curtains are great ways to encourage my curious little one to hang from. Yes, K man loves to hang from curtains and it drives me BONKERS. So each time I can replace a curtain with a blind it leaves me with one less headache or situation with the little one.

Do you prefer blinds or curtains, how about OCD issues, anything that you have to just deal with each day or else it literally drives your mind crazy?

      I am so happy I am not the only one with this OCD issue 😉

    I don’t like for people to be able to see in either. We have huge drapes in the library (the room facing the road) and for some reason the plastic thingies that hold it on the track have started popping off and breaking. Makes me have to arrange them a bit to make sure there are no peep holes left open at night, lol. I’m going to put new ones up, but it’s such a pain…then I’ll want to clean the drapes, and the track, and well, you get the idea… it may be a little longer before I get around to it. 😉

      It is funny that you mention that Rosey! I do the same thing, fiddle with my long bedroom curtains, they are over french doors in my bedroom, to ensure there are no “peek holes” :-)
