  • I count stairs. If I get to the top and its an odd number of stairs I do some fancy footwork a la Fred Astaire, hopping up and down the top step, until I feel like my legs have each stepped up an equal number of steps. Heh. Getting better about this in public, though.

    When unloading the dishwasher, I put the freshly washed silverware under the silverware already in the drawer. This ensures that all flatware is used equally and none of them feels useless or left out. :/

    My vehicle must be locked 3 times via remote. Once to lock it, once to make sure it's locked, and again to make sure the 2nd locking didn't cancel out the first locking. Ha.

  • Organizing markers, pencils, crayons by color.
    My dishes have to go in the same spot- I get fidgety if they don't.
    I have to do the same thing every morning or I have a really bad day.

  • Locking my car doors. Even if I know I locked it when I got out, I have to go back and check to make sure they are locked!
