You Know your a Homemaking Dork When

I just have to post this because as of late this is so me. Are you a homemaking Dork?

Content taken from my google reader, original post make at A Rose in Mary's Garden

You think to yourself, " I wonder if there is a printable spreadsheet of laundry stains and how to remove them that I could print and laminate to put by the washing machine."And then your next thought is..." I should totally make one, I'll put it on my to-do list."
Your husband says to you "Well no one actually reads those books, there just to have as a reference, You look something up in the index when you need it", and you think "I really enjoyed that book."
Your two favorite books are: "Home Comforts, The Art & Science of Keeping House" by Cheryl Mendelson, and "Homemaking" by J.R. Miller.
You lay awake at night and think of ways to rearrange your pantry for optimal storage capacity and usability.
You use words like "optimal storage capacity".
You keep a spreadsheet of grocery prices.
You carry a three-ring binder with you when you grocery shop that contains the above spreadsheet.
You actually have a software program on your computer with all of the grocery items listed with their prices that generates a shopping list that tells you exactly what you will spend at the store.
Life without schedules, spreadsheets, notebooks, and charts sounds utterly terrifying.
There's no place you'd rather be than in your home, caring for your husband and children!

This is so me! My husband and I have palms and we "beam" our lists to one another. Since he is the official grocery shopper now, I just add to his list. :o) I love organization!
