  • Movies, books and my spices should be in alphabetical order (easier to find that way!)

    I can't stand to have the blinds drawn during the day...feel too closed in.

    I can tolerate the boys to be in similar outfits, but can't stand it if they match (unless it's sports team gear!)

  • I like to keep things on even numbers if at all possible.
    When I eat colored candy(like M&M's or Skittles) then I will make sure there are identical numbers of all colors and then put them in a group so Im eating one of each color. Like if there are 3 reds and 2 greens and 2 blues Ill eat a red seperate to even the numbers out and then Ill pair up a red, green and blue and eat those at the same time. Make sense?? LOL
    I break the tab off my soda cans when they are empty and stick the tab in the can. DH hates that one.
    When I sleep, I have to have hair covering my ear for fear of bugs getting in my ear(quirk I picked up as a child after seeing Star Trek: Wrath of Khan). I figure, if bugs tried to get in my ear Id feel them in my hair and be able to get them out LOL.

  • I get silly over how my classroom desks are. If I have them in groups, no problem. They can be hap-hazard. If they are in rows, it makes me crazy. Kids can't just sit down. They flop down and push the desks. The rows become zigzag lines. This is where I get weird. If they are to be in a line, I want them in a line. If they are deliberately out of order - fine. It's exhausting.

  • My radio volume has to be an even #, too.
    The hot water kettle has to be on the back left burner facing to the right when it is boiling. When it is done then it has to be placed on the back right burner facing to the left.

    My medications have to be placed in a specific order, label facing forward, and taken in order from left to right.
    The closet door has to be shut before I go to bed.
    My feet have to be on the bed and under the covers, no matter how hot it is - just in case something from under the bed decides to grab
    I can drink my coffee only out of certain mugs and no one else is allowed to use them.
    The milk container in the fridge has to be facing forward with the handle on the right side.
    My magnets on my fridge doors are in specific positions and I keep them that way.
    There are others.....
