My sister's new boyfriend came to town to meet us last night. I really liked him and now I'm sitting here wondering if he liked us too or if we potentially ruined it for Jeni. Either way, it went well and I pray that he'll stick around. He seems great.
Somehow we got on the topic of OCD. It turns out that Daniel thinks that we all have some sort of obsessive compulsive tendencies. At first I disagreed. Then I started thinking. And laughing at myself for the quirky things that I do daily that I don't even realize I'm doing.
For instance, when I wake up, I HAVE to get my breakfast ready in a certain order and eat it in the same way. It's slightly different from pre-pregnancy days because I wouldn't have dreamed of eating a pop-tart for breakfast every day, but other than that...it's the same.
-Go to the coffee pot and pour my coffee.
-Pop in my pop-tart.
-Pour milk while it's warming.
-carry milk and coffee to computer.
-grab pop-tart and place on a paper towel.
-Eat pop-tart while drinking milk.
[and before you comment, yes I'm pregnant. GASP.]
Next issue: the bathtub. Every single time I turn on the water, I have to turn it all the way to the left and then back to the middle. If I didn't do it, it would feel so wrong.
I want the couch to be exactly where I know it needs to be on the rug. If it's not, (ask anyone) I'll obsessively move it until it's perfect.
The same goes with just about any of my decorations. Picture frames must be straight and if someone (jokingly) moves something, I'll notice, find it and return it to it's proper place.
Jeni, Daniel & Chad went on to tell of their quirks and we all laughed.
Now I'm curious--
what are yours?
