Hi. My Name is Sammy and I...{am a little neurotic} #TTT

It's week 3 of #thoughtsthingsthursday already...and today I'm going to spill the beans about...how neurotic I am - we're still getting to know each other, right?  The good, the bad, the ugly!  I'll list 3 things because it's my 3rd installment of #ttt!

So, read this list and tell me if (a) you think I'm totally nuts, (b) you think I'm nuts but don't want to hurt my feelings so you tell me I'm fine ;) or (c) you do these things too! 

  1. Re-check that I turned off the stove top/toaster/oven/coffee pot.
    • The last thing I want to do is start a fire (duh!) so literally every time I leave the house - even if I haven't used the oven in 3 days - I check to make sure that it's off!  My brain is telling myself that it couldn't possibly be on because, hello - it's been days! - but I can't put my nerves at ease until I've checked it,,,,again.
  2. Lock my car - over and over.
    • I can remotely lock/unlock my car from my key ring.  And, even though I leave nothing of value in my car, I have to hear the beep while I'm locking it at least twice before I go into a store.  People in the parking lot must be like - what does she have in there that she obviously doesn't want anyone getting? lol
  3. Re-check that I set my alarm.
    • I really never set an alarm...I have a 4-year-old that wakes me up between 6:30 and 7:00am every day so he's my alarm clock!  When I do have to set the actual alarm...if my husband has an early meeting, if I have an appointment, if we're leaving for a trip....I have to check and re-check that I set it for the right time, and am/pm!  It's pretty annoying, even for me! lol
As you can see I'm a checker, and a re-checker, and a check-er again!  I could really go on about my idiosyncrasies but I think these are enough to give you a good idea :)

What do you do that you know isn't necessary but you can't help it??  Join in and tell me something - so I don't feel like a weirdo alone! :)

I'll be back later with my WOD!

  1. I always re check my hair straightener like a hundred times. Sometimes I even go back home to check it!

    1. Ditto with my straightener, too! and the blow dryer - although even if I left the blow dryer plugged in NOTHING would happen! lol Thanks for the comment, Elise!
