I think that what stops me sometimes from sitting down to write a post is TIME.  I feel like I don’t have enough time to create a solid post with an intro, conclusion, theme and a picture.  That’s stupid.  It’s 9:58am, Wednesday morning and I just did something weird and thought, “I wonder if other people would think that’s weird.  I should blog about it.”  And so I am. 

No pictures, no edits.  5 minutes, in and out.  Yes, calling a behavior or a person “weird” is definitely subjective but you get the gist.

8 Weird Things I Do

I don’t like it when my nails are long.  If one breaks, they all get chopped.

I cut my own hair and can count the number of times I’ve gone to the salon on ONE hand.  It’s a hot mess and that’s why I wear it up in a top bun.  (and also I’m lazy and hate styling it)

(Here’s the one that prompted this post) I look forward to drinking/eating the last little soggy bits of cereal in my kids’ breakfast bowls.  There’s probably a bit of “backwash”-action going on but I don’t mind and I simply love it.  Best cereal to do this with –> Frosted Mini Wheats.

I chew evenly.  I take bites on each side of my mouth and they have to end in an even number.  Don’t give me 3 M&M’s.  I want either 2 or 4.

Toilet paper.  The roll needs to spin clockwise off the holder or else I’ll take it off and readjust.

Clean floors are my jam.  We don’t wear shoes in the house.  Clara’s allergist suggested this when we had her tested but honestly, I use this as backup to my neuroses.

I hate eating big meals.  I like to snack ALL DAY long.  Unfortunately, I’ve trained my kids to be snackers and they’re always asking for food.  This isn’t a problem that I’m really trying to change so don’t give me tips.

My nostrils dictate how I sleep.  If one side is stuffed up and the other is clear, I put the clear side down, facing the pillow and sleep on that side of my body.  That may be the weirdest thing I’ve ever heard.


That was 5 minutes.  I’ll stop at 8 things.  Happy Wednesday!!!

QUESTION:  Tell me one WEIRD thing YOU do!

  1. I am a clutter PHOBE to a fault and when I’ve decided an area is cluttered I fixate on it until I’m satisfied- that might mean texting my husband to ask which of his shoes I can throw away or donate OR it might mean baking cookies cakes and whatever else to give to neighbors etc to clean my cabinet because I couldn’t go another day with it in its messy state…. I could go on and on. I have a friend who invites me over when she wants her house cleaned because she knows her clutter will ultimately get to me and I’ll just have to start

  2. I have to put on my left sock first then my right sock. Then I put on my left shoe, then my right shoe. If for some reason I don’t do this I’ll take them off and start over.

  3. YES to the M&Ms! I also like when the colors match up…if I have 4 m&ms, I like when 2 are one color and 2 are another…or they need to all be different colors…none of this 2 yellow, 1 red and 1 blue nonsense. I also prefer brown M&Ms…ever since a movie that I can’t remember in this moment what it’s called. haha!

  4. I have the same thing with my sleeping side being dependent upon my nostril situation!!! It is funny to read that someone else does that same thing!!!

  5. I can’t believe I’m about to admit this BUT because you went all out, I will too! I have to examine my face for blackheads/zits every single time I go to the bathroom…..
