(Deana-age 11-writing out her own idiosyncrasies)

I had the pleasure of spending time with my sisters yesterday afternoon. And what better way to spend time, than to think up unusual habits that mark (or mar) the personality of the others. While I scrapbooked, my oldest and youngest sisters went investigating into their lives, in an effort to 'discover' (or at least admit) five idiosyncrasies concealed in the hidden chambers of their being. I wasted no time pointing out their ::smiles:: 'uniqueness' to them. Let me tell ya-though she's lived less years, this was a lot easier to do with Deana, than Joleen-who seemingly came up pretty normal. It wasn't long before the table turned and the focus landed on me. Having been labeled from time to time with O.C.D., it didn't take a considerable amount of time (or even five seconds, for that manner) for my loving family to come up with many idiosyncrasies that I possess.

In no particular order-

1. I clean my apartment, always from the laundry room to the walk-in closet, or visa versa, but never starting in the middle.

2. I am constantly readjusting the placemats, as I walk by, so that they are the same distance from the edge of the table as they are from each other.

3. I sing and play Christmas music, literally, all year long. With much joy, I often share the songs that are stuck in my head, so that my family begins humming the same tunes.

4. Like my sister, Joleen (who tagged me-inspiring this blog), I cannot sleep if there is anything covering my feet-no socks, blankets, or anything else; my feet control my temperature!!!

5. I'm not sure if this counts as 'unusual,' but I almost always have toe nail polish on.

6. I run all my errands in a circle...I hate backtracking.

7. I spread PB&J on my bread, very lightly, but making sure not to miss a single spot.

Welcome to blogging. Have fun with it.

It's addicting.

And if I could give you one piece of advice...

post in YOUR blog before you go read anyone elses blog or you could find yourself wrapped up in reading other blogs and then be out of time to write in your blog. We all need to sleep at some point.

Oh Aimee, you have become your grandmother!!!! LOL, I can't laugh enough over our simularities in housekeeping. Although you couldn't convince my mother that I cleaned anything as a child. Good luck and I will be an avid reader of your blog just as I am with Joleen.
