Ok, I know I am not the only one out there that has at least ONE OCD tendency. If I sit here long enough I could probably think of a few. Actually, here are a few.

1.) I never close cabinet doors. It really drives Daniel nuts...cause he runs right into them cause of his height. I can easily walk under them...but not him. The reason I hate to close cabinet doors...I HATE the noise it makes. I dont like the slam!

2.) To put my makeup on...I sit
not on the bathroom counter... but in the bathroom sink. It is more comfortable that way. Well, this is what I do when Im not pregnant. Now, I HAVE to sit in a chair.

3.) When it is cold outside, at bedtime I tuck my pjs into my socks. I look my sexiest when I do that. ;)

4.) I hate for my food to touch and mix with each other. I realized this quirk when I was a flight attendant and my roommate at our hotel/apartment went and got/brought us back breakfast. On my plate she had all my favorites and with a napkin...she got a napkin, rolled it up and separated my food choices. :) I thought that was the sweetest thing she could do...cause it showed me that she really knew me...but then wigged me out...cause that showed me that I was weird.

5.) If I am cooking...the kitchen LOOKS like someone has been cooking in it...there are ingredients, utensils and such all over the counters. But if Daniel is cooking...I am right behind him picking/cleaning up EVERYTHING and putting it away... even when he is not done with it. Ex. He could go to the drawer, get a spoon to stir something, stir, put it down to get something out of the pantry. That is when I swoop in and put it in the dishwasher. Daniel gets frustrated cause he needs that spoon to mix in the ingredients from the pantry.

6.) This one is not big...but everytime I go to get my hair done at the salon...I have to go home and style it myself. The hairstylist could have done an amazing job...but still no matter what...I have to go fix it myself at home.

7.) I cannot stand buffets. I will only go if I HAVE to. The reason for this quirk:
I have seen a kid drop a buffet utensil on the floor, say oops and then put in back in the food.

But recently, last night actually. My friends sweetly informed me that I may need to go see a doctor when they heard of my latest OCD. I found out that not only do I not like my food to touch... I am freaking out about Micah and Ky's clothes touching in the drawer. I am sure that once Ky is here and I will have 3 kids to keep up with, I will quickly get over it. BUT, for right now as I am starting my nesting process, I am wigging out just a bit that their clothes are gonna touch. Not because of cooties or anything like that, but I just would hate to have Ky miss out on wearing something that gets pushed to the back of the drawer cause of Micah's big boy clothes are in the way. :O) So how am I gonna remedy this? I got a LUVs diaper box and cut it in half and now the drawers will have "sections."

Oh, I feel much better. :O)

I did the exact same thing with Tristan and Aiden's clothes. I did not want them to get forgotten just because Tristan's is bigger and already in the house easily acccessable. I didn't have to do that with clothes per se (I did with Aiden's new clothes and his hand me down's) but I did that with any towels and wash cloths. A year later, I still refuse to share wash cloths or towels between the two. They each have their own and that is that.

It's a good quirk.

You did the box thing! Hooray for you. And we were just kidding of course about you needing therapy. I'm glad you found a solution to your problem!

And I love that we both tuck our pants into our socks. I'm sure our husbands are so attracted to us when we do that. :)
