    Quirky Habits

    Okay I admit it, I have quirky habits.

    I hate to turn off music in the middle of a song.
    If music is on, I can't turn it off when I'm going to take a shower.

    When I'm pouring something, usually food, into a container I pour in the amount I want then stop and pour in just a little bit more.

    I arrange my eggs in the carton so that they are balanced. The reasoning is that I don't want to pull it out and flip it up or down because the weight is all at the front or back.

    Okay, confession time!

    What quirky habits do you have?
    I have this rope in my hands. I can't figure out whether I found a rope or lost my horse.

    quirky habits -- hmmmmmm I've never thought of this!!!

    Okay -- I insist the most used kitchen utensils go in the 2nd drawer down and the least used go in the 3rd down drawer....

    I have to have my pans stacked by size --- even the fry pans

    Those sound more anal retentive than quirky -- ROL

    I refuse to eat my watermelon when the rind is on it -- I have to cut it off

    I'll have to think some more!!

    BTW - I love your signature line down there --- LOL

    I tap my spoon on my tea cup after stirring the sugar and milk in. I do this so the spoon doesn't drip of the way to the sink. I turn the kitchen light on to answer the kitchen phone. I have a lot more but both of these drive my husband up the wall.

    I make sure all the labels are facing out when I put canned goods on the shelf. It's kind of quirky but it also helps when you're looking for something.

    The toilet paper and paper towels have to be placed so they roll from the top down! I've been known to rearrange these at my daughter's and friend's houses...so pathetic!

    All of the light switches have to be in the same position LOL We have a lot of switches that can be turned on or off from more than one place in the home so we have rows of two or three light switches. They all have to be up or down...I will go through the house and flip them all to make them right.
    I know I have more but this is one that my husband just doesn't get lmao

    The coffee grinder has to be lined up exactly so it covers the electrical outlet behind it.

    The coffee maker sits equal distance between the coffee grinder and the placemat that holds the coffee fixin's

    When applying hand lotion, each hand has to have the same amount of squirts. Same goes for my legs.

    I always fix my husband's coffee first. The dog always gets fed before the cat. Dunno why I do that.

    Geez, don't know if I'm more anal retentive or quirky. But -- I can leave a pile of clothes on the floor NEXT TO the clothes basket for a week and it not bother me.

    Balancing the egg carton as you do makes perfect sense to me, as does tapping the spoon so it won't drip. I just thought those were common sense rather than quirky. Turning on the light when you answer the phone also makes sense because you might need to jot a note. Pans won't nest unless they're stacked by size. I don't have a lot of habits I can't rationalize some way. It's my husband who has the quirky ones! (How come we don't have a little imp face among the smileys here?)

    I tell my kids and nieces and nephews that if a prospective mate does anything that is the least bit annoying to you, take a good hard look at it because if you marry him/her you will be dealing with that forevermore, and it will only annoy you worse over time.
