Maybe, it is just me.


When Grace and I visited Savannah a couple of weekends ago with Abby and Logan, Abby made an off hand comment about me being OCD.  I was busy shuffling bags around and organizing everything immediately after lugging it all up to the bedroom.  We were staying for one stinking night, y'all.  I'm weird, I know it... but that's not the only reason I label myself with the word weird.

First off, I'm a natural born redhead AND a lefty.  Only 2% of the human population is a redhead (thanks Wikipedia, also thanks for this tidbit "Cultural reactions have varied from ridicule to admiration; many common stereotypes exist regarding redheads and they are often portrayed as fiery-tempered." I laughed, because it is true.) and only 10% of the human population is left hand dominant... so double weird.

I crave clean.  I can't go to sleep if the house isn't picked up.  I'm always cleaning, always moving to organize something.  AND EVERYTHING has a place in my house.  Which apparently my husband doesn't get?  I enjoy vacuuming (I was literally grumpy this last weekend because the vacuum was out of commission until Amazon got us a new filter..)... that alone has to make me weird.  Who enjoys vacuuming?

I miss driving a stick shift, writing on a paper calendar and reading books with real pages, not a finger swipe.  I like sending mail to people.  I take documenting Grace's life in a scrapbook very serious.  I hate when tasks stay on my to-do list for too long.. and by the way.. that is a written on paper to-do list.  NOTHING beats marking off a completed task.  Weird? Maybe, maybe not.

I've got my quirks, that is for sure.. but that is what makes life interesting, right?!  Finding out your daughter may be left handed dominant too?  That is the cherry on top.

Tell me I'm not alone in my weird quirks... what are yours?!
always,

  3. Reading real books is my favorite. My e-reader actually broke, and I haven't felt the need to replace it.

  4. I could write a novel of my weird quirks. Luckily, my husband is very understanding, haha.

  5. I love reading real books too! But I don't like vacuuming. That's why I got a Roomba. But Evelyn LOVES the vacuum. It's pretty funny. She follows me around when I have the real vacuum out and tries to climb on it while I vacuum!

  7. I definitely get cleaner and more obsessive as I get older. Dirty dishes in the sink didn't used to bother me...

  8. I love cleaning too! And cooking constantly (but I'm not a big eater). It's the Virgo in me? Are you Virgo? Virgos love order lol

  9. You are not alone. While I can live in a messy house, it's only for a short time. I'm having trouble finding places for everything, but love it when it's clean. My mom is left handed and I was born a red head :) I cannot STAND dirty dishes in the sink. I will stay up late, just to get those done. I think your quirks are what make you, you. :)

  10. My house is never clean enough so I have given up. But I still need my book to hold and a list. I was a giddy school girl on Monday when my paper calendar came in at work.

  11. I still have a paper calendar that hangs in my kitchen and I LIVE by and I borrow books from the library because I refuse to read them on a tablet.

  12. We sound exactly the same except for the clean/organization part...I mean, I LOVE having everything clean and organized, but I put too many irons in the fire and it's hard to clean around the zillion projects I have going on. Hopefully I can get it all in order before CQB comes!
