A semi-related factoid: I won't even make coffee with a foreign maker because I totally destroyed one (that wasn't mine) once by relying on my natural intuition.

One word: HOTEL.

Say, you're in the process of moving into your new place, and your mom likes systems... Why not have your mother arrange you kitchen for you? And when she finishes that, the bathroom? Then Moomin's room! You'd get all that moving in stuff out of the way, and your mother could go home knowing that at least part of your house was in the proper order.

I keep saying it - I invited her to organize my kitchen in the optimal way. but she demurred.

1. Open bag of coffee.
2. Pick up tablespoon from drawer.
3. Pick up die from Monopoly box in den cabinet.
4. Roll die.
5. Count dots on upper surface of die. Divide by 3. Add 1.
6. Carefully measure that number of tablespoons into coffee maker.

This is a remarkably insightful post about rules-based behaviors. My dad rather proudly recounts the time he took a psych test somewhere and the guy rather mildly pointed out that my father wasn't particularly 'rulebound.' He has tried to encourage this kind of behavior in me and my sister. But I have found that there are people, like your mother, who simply operate better if they have some rules, even completely arbitrary madeup ones. I do this for people at work sometimes.
