Harmless Little Compulsions

I must always eat M&M's and other candies like it in groups of even-numbered amounts: 2, 4, 6, etc. I've done that as long as I can remember, and it appears I have passed this compulsion on to my daughter, who's 24. I must also kiss my children on both of their cheeks, never just on one, lest their stores of affection be lopsided.

Yes, I'm weird. ;-) What's your weirdness?

Lol, I was just talking about this with my friends today. I was dicussing wanting the baby to be born on an even numbered day too.
Love you Mom!

Hey, baby, I love you too, with all my heart. You are the coolest young woman I know. You are going to be one fantastic mother and social worker!

1. I must cut my waffles 3 squares across by 2 squares high. Makes the perfect bite size.

2. My artichoke leaf piles have to be neatly stacked and all the same height.

Ooh! Artichoke leaf piles! I hadn't thought of that. Thanks for the new compulsion venue, RevRosa. I'll have to think about expanding my repertoire.

Light switches -- I'll walk across the room or up/down the stairs to make sure the switches are in their "proper" positions. Also, towels and shirts, folding of. I'll refold entire baskets of laundry to get them right. Otherwise, I'm a total slob.

Oh, Kathy ... have I got some great big laundry piles for you! Anytime you want 'em, they're yours.
