Top 3 Thursday!



Today's "Top 3 Thursday" is all about this:

What are your top 3 quirks?

I have to say, I always appreciate these daily memes, but this one I had to join in.. because if you know me well, then you'd know that I have probably more than just 3... I'll keep it to a minimum, so here I go:

3. I have to join in with COAWM on this one (I can't leave her alone because it wouldn't be fair), I too am guilty of popping my husband's pimples and blackheads.
He's all by himself with his face, but if it's a big juicy back pimple, I'm there. And he, very sweet husband that he is, returns the favor. Not that we have horrible skin, but it's nice to have a partner help keep your skin situation in check.

2. I'm not sure how quirky this is, so I'll take a risk here..but I HAVE to have my refrigerated food all pushed to the front at all times. I'm the same way with our pantry,too.
If it's not in the front and I don't see it, it won't get eaten. And if it doesn't get eaten, well that's just wasting. So, every single thing has to be up to the front for me to see. And if Rick puts away groceries, if I let him (yikes), I have anxiety seeing how he throws everything into the fridge and pantry in odd places and all over, back and front. Wow..typing that out makes me very freaky.

1. I guess this goes in line with #2.. so I'll add more to this quirk: I hate it when things are out of place. If certain papers on our computer desk, the checkbook, keys..anything is sideways, moved, or rustled, I get anxious. So, I have to fix it again. If my kids library books are mixed with their own books on top of the side table I have to fix that. If the shoes by the front door are all over the place, not paired together with their twin, I have to fix that, too.
Wow, I think I need help.
So, what are your quirks?

haha, you're not crazy. I don't put food in the drawers of the fridge because I don't see it and will forget its there. I have also organized each shelf in our pantry and will put the food in the 'right' place after my husband messes it up, lol.

Ditto on the "everything has a place" thing ... I soooo totally agree!!

Thanks for backing me up with the pimples! I'm amazed at how many women have fessed up to that, too! We're not alone!

Thanks for stopping by today! And I thought I could probably go on and on about my quirks, but it's good to limit them. Everything totally has it's place! Love it!

I have to wait for the 3rd. step before getting on an escalator.

I obsess about not having enough outdoor lighting in the backyard.

I have to let the cold water run a bit, before filling the ice cube trays. The ice has to be clear, not murky. PP

The pantry / food thing I can relate to -- so I clean the fridge and re-arrange the pantry quite often just to be sure we are eating what we buy! It is making those $200 plus trips to BJ's truly worth it!

My husband is the same way with the fridge food, like yogurt...new ones in front, older ones behind them.

Sorry it took me so long to stop by.

Thanks for playing our game!
