I've been meme-tagged, or whatever it's called, by Snave of Various Miseries. I am supposed to list five weird things about myself.
This was a tough one. I could easily list 5 weird OCD habits, but I wanted this to be more mainstream (if you can call it that,) so I limited the OCD weird stuff to the first 2.
1) I rotate stuff. I am constantly rotating silverware, glasses, dishes, towels, canned food, and as Tom can attest to, socks & underwear. I do this so everything gets evenly worn. For instance, I don't want the same 3 spoons getting used all the time, so I make sure to put those on the bottom of the stack when they come out of the dishwasher. Freshly cleaned socks & underwear (and t-shirts) go to the back of the drawer so they can become part of the rotation.
Recently, Tom noticed that his underwear had numbers written on them. I did this because I wanted to make sure that he wasn't pulling underwear from the bottom of the pile (out of rotation.) I kept a chart in the laundry room to keep track of what was being worn. Due to this brilliant detective work of mine, I discovered that he WAS pulling them from the bottom! This has been an issue for us ever since. (He doesn't understand the importance of rotation.)
3) When I was little I didn't play with dolls, however, I had tons of stuffed animals. Now, as an adult, I don't have children...but I have 2 dogs and a parrot.
4) I don't like to leave my house very often. When I do, it isn't easy getting me to go over 5 miles beyond my comfort zone. In the rare occasion that I have to go to St. Paul, it sends shivers up my spine. Not only because it's far, but because their streets aren't numbered correctly.
5) And last, but not least, I can proudly stand up and say, I have NEVER set foot in a Walmart. Ok, that's not really weird per se, but it's a good thing.
That's my list.
Motomama, if you have time, you're it!
