I have noticed the older I get the more OCD I get. Or maybe I am just now noticing how OCD I really am?
For example, I like my bookshelves neat and orderly arranged in groups by Author and then in order of publication oldest to newest. Weird, right??
I also like my DVDs arranged alphabetically.
I can’t stand when emails clutter my inbox. I want to read an email, answer it and them delete! Can’t stand junk or clutter.
I also can’t stand notifications on my phone. It drives me NUTS when I look at my screen and it looks like this….I MUST get rid of all the red dots immediately!!
I also like my house picked up every night before I go to bed. Doesn’t have to be spotlessly cleaned but everything MUST be in it’s place. I am a neat freak.
I also noticed that I do things in a certain order, like the order in which I do things when I take a shower. First, I wash my hair and then I put the conditioner on. I leave the conditioner on while I then wash my body, shave my legs (if they need it), wash my face, and then I rinse out the conditioner last. I take a shower in this order every time. Anybody else have a certain routine?
When I’m at work I like to write my patient list out and the times all their treatments are due and I stick to that list. I can honestly say that it pisses me off if I get new patients or patients that transfer from other floors to mine and I have to add their treatments to my list. Not because I don’t want to do the treatments but because it throws my list off.
This is also why I don’t care to work in the ER anymore….all the unexpected traumas that come in or treatments throw me off.
I am also a list maker. I can get way more stuff done if I have a list ready and can mark things off as I go.
I used to be big into couponing and so I have a little stockpile of certain items. I have them stashed away in my closet and in rows in order that I want to use them.
I also have a drawer in my bathroom full of stuff, again arranged in order I want to use them…
And a stash in my laundry room…
I seriously haven’t bought any cleaning stuff or personal hygiene stuff in over a year.
Weird right??? Am I the only weirdo out there??!!
