Arguments With My OCD Husband

It's been a while since I've been able to talk about my experiences with my husband J, who has OCD. So I thought id add something new to some light into my life with an OCD husband.



J and I often have fights. Like any married couple, we fight about the usual stuff. But because he has OCD, we also have fights that to a normal person would be ridiculous.

Just tonight, after I put the kids to bed, I decided to go to the laundry room to get some sanitizer wipes to sanitize some door handles and things because both my kids have colds. My husband leaves his perfectly sanitized phone and keys on the counter right in front of the sanitizer container. He sanitized them every evening to get "work germs" off.

Anyway,  I'm in the laundry room grabbing a sanitizer wipe. J hears me and immediately comes in and stares at me. 
"Don't breath on my stuff!" he says.

I lose it on him. "Don't tell me what I can and cannot breathe on!" I yell. 
I fly off the handle easily when I'm mad. But I feel like I was justified in this situation. 

"I don't want your sick germs to get on my things!" He yells. 

"I'm not sick!" I say

"You don't know that!" J says 



And on and on that argument went. 
Being with an OCD person is so hard sometimes. I constantly feel like when he looks at me,  he sees this disgusting germ infested person. 


No matter how many arguments were getting into, Marriage is a commitment. And we both are working towards keeping our marriage happy and healthy. 



I am the type of person that likes to talk about my life. About all the craziness that most people wouldn't understand. It helps me to have these conversations because others will share things that aren't so perfect in their life. That just makes me feel better to know that no one is in a perfect marriage,  or that no one really has a completely perfect life. 

  Any silly arguments you have recently gotten into with your spouse/partner?

How I saved hundreds of dollars for Christmas.

Christmas is an expensive time of year for most.  For my family,  we set a strict budget for Christmas and try not to go over.  This year though is the first year I came out under budget!  We set a $900 budget for all Christmas gift purchases. Since I don't work and my husband has had a kind of crappy sales year, we needed to have a strict budget to not overextend ourselves. 
For a few years, I've been using some money making apps to earn a little extra cash for Christmas and birthday gifts. This year it's really paid off!  I was able to use $150 from these apps to put toward Christmas! Using rewards from stores has saved me a good chunk of cash as well!
Want to know exactly how I saved so much money?
Kohls: I love taking advantage of Kohl's because they have great deals,  and they give you kohls cash for purchases you make.  This year I did some shopping at Kohl's and ended up with $55 in Kohl's cash. So I was able to use that toward a few gifts for my extend…

How to Find Success in Life

Success is something everyone wants, but we might define it differently. A lot of people associate success with having lots of money or having a fancy job title. 
I think success can be a lot of different things. You can have success in relationships,  or creating that family you always wanted,  maybe it's being a successful athlete,  or getting that master or doctorates degree you have been working so hard to get. I think success can be anything you want that involves you to work hard to get. 
There are some things you can do to help you live the successful life you want.

My Favorite Finds of 2018

2018 is coming to a close. I cannot believe how fast this year has gone by.  2018 brought many fun things to my life.  For 2018 I made a goal to get out of my comfort zone,  to be a better parent, and to find more hobbies that interest me.  I did a pretty good job with all of these parts of my life. I started this blog which is really out of my comfort zone.  I've also been able to make a few new friends which are a miracle for me.   I worked on how I talk to my kids.  Apologizing to them more often when I do something wrong,  and making sure I tell them I love them as often as I can.  And as for the new hobbies, I've started a few.  I count my blog as a hobby since it's not really a money maker right now,  and I love writing for it.  
I've found a bunch of things that have improved my life in some way or another and I want to share them with you.  Maybe you might find something new you haven't tried or something that can improve your life in 2019!
