March 24, 2009 quirky 6

Everyone has them. Each of us has a few little oddities that make us unique and well…….quirky. Before I list mine I wholly admit to some slight OCD issues, they are all things I wish weren’t true, but alas, they are.
1. In my laundry room, the spare hangers have to lined up by type and color. I have clear hangers and plastic tube type hangers. I’m actually ok with mixing hangers in each closet, but I do have to have them lined up and the kids think it’s funny to re-arrange them for me. All the pink hangers have to go in the girls room, and I tend to give Kevin only blue or white. There are a few odd brown ones, and I hang clothes that I might not like on them…….weird.
2. I have to have the closet door closed when I go to bed.
3. It annoys me if the toilet seat is up(the covered part, heaven forbid if the other seat is left up…..I teach my men right)
4. I sleep with one foot out of the covers…except if I think it’s really cold. It’s sort of my temperature regulator.
5. I like to fall asleep with the TV on.
6. I fold underwear and match socks….everyones…..I’d almost rather do the laundry myself.
7. I rarely walk around in bare feet, I usually have on socks or wear sandals. We have wood floors.

So tell me what makes you unique……..and yet perhaps quirky.

    Hi Anita, Thank you for visiting my blog. I really appreciate it; I’m new at this. I enjoy your ‘quirks’ post enough to perhaps blog mine and link to yours…once I figure out how to accomplish that! One quirk I have is that, no matter where I am -could be in the home of a stranger or a doctor’s office, anywhere, if I see a crooked picture on the wall, I HAVE TO STRAIGHTEN IT. HAVE TO. A bit of OCD, I guess. 🙂 I’ll be following your blog – I can identify with it. 🙂

    I get totally nuts and out of sorts with open issues that impact my life. I “need” things settled and decided. It totally makes me obsess to wait in order to find out how things will be; I just want them decided and done! Also, I get nutty bored with mundane routine tasks and will often let them pile up just to make them a more interesting challenge to conquer. Right now I have this pile of laundry that is just nuts for a stay-at-home mom! Then, there are weeks when others would think I was Martha Stewart about such tasks. I just change the way I tackle these things back and forth because of boredom. I also check my alarm clock 3-5 times every night before I go to bed. When I think something is super important, I sometimes have a need to repeat it (to the family member who needs to know it) three times in a row and that makes them insane 🙂 I am totally anal about some things and then I totally blow off other things. It is like I am a stickler for perfection in some areas and embrace complete imperfection in other areas. I am a stickler for accuracy in legal, financial or work documents and I will insist the tiniest little thing be changed if it isn’t right (while others roll their eyes at me about it).

    Oh you’re so fun!!! I LOVE the one about your natural temperature regulator! hee hee 🙂

    I absolutely must have all the bills in my wallet lined up with the faces going the same direction. I think this goes back to my first job working at Burger King 20 plus years ago…all the bills had to have the faces pointing to the left in the cash drawer…some habits never leave! 🙂

    Happy Tuesday!

    Denise 🙂

    Oh my word. We’re nearly the same person. I do all but the last. I still go barefoot often.

    Oh, and truth be told, I don’t always sleep with one foot out of the covers, but almost always.

    WOW, you and I have a lot in common! My hubby and i both sleep with one foot out of the bed and it has to be the same foot always!

    I like to fall asleep with the t.v. on, too…that’s why I fall asleep on the couch almost every night. My hubby doesn’t like it so much when he has to wake me up, though. (Sometimes I’m grumpy when I’m half-asleep. 🙂 )

    Your quirks aren’t that weird. I’ve seen worse. *smiles*
