Odd Couple

Does a messy home (or office) make you anxious and cranky, or is cleaning something you just do before company comes over?


To be perfectly honest I don’t care how messy the house is. People are so used to me I just let them in my room and maybe apologize for the mess, but most times I just don’t care.

The tech guy who came recently to  my room to work on the old computer got to see what a slob I am. My ex-husband and I had some problems with that. He hated the mess and I could care less. I knew if I waited long enough he would clean it himself and he did.

I was a bad housewife. I also worked full time and had kids. Not that that would change anything. We were the odd couple alright.

About Tessa

My name is Tessa Dean and I am an author and blogger. My writing styles vary and I love writing using prompts. I am also writing my first book, a Memoir entitled "Government Property - A Memoir of a Military Wife".  This is being published on the blog rather than the traditional way. I am putting up chapters as I go along. I keep my blog filled with useful content, stories, and poems. Plenty to keep you busy. I have also been interviewed by blogs and had other posts published on many different blogs. I also wrote a series of articles on Bipolar Disorder for IBPF (International Bipolar Foundation). I am in my 60’s and disabled which allows me plenty of time to write to my heart’s content. I live in southern New Jersey and have 3 children and 5 grandchildren. My oldest grandchild is a Sargent in the United States Marine Corps.
