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?!
