Look, I have never been diagnosed with OCD, but I have found that as I get older, I have weird things that need to be "just so" or I get all wigged out. Here are a few:
My car keys--I KNOW I just pulled them out of the ignition and put them in my purse. That doesn't mean I won't check, double check, and re-check for them before I actually lock and close the door.
Locking the house at night--Again, I KNOW I just turned the knob to lock up. I clearly remember doing it...but there I go again, padding through the house in my lovely nighttime attire to check one last time before bed. (And sheesh, it's not like a deadbolt is going to keep someone out who really wants to get in.)
Making the bed with freshly washed sheets--The only time I ever strive to make the bed absolutely perfectly is right after I've washed and dried all the bedding. And then, it doesn't matter if I'm going to get into said bed mere minutes after making it...it must. be. perfect. Hospital corners? Check. All pillows accounted for? Check. Top sheet folded over just so? Check and double check. Weird.
Labels out--Yeah, I like to see what's in my cupboards, so what? Is it so wrong that I also prefer everything to be arranged by size, brand and type of food. Is it? IS IT?
OK, enough about me...what are slightly OCD things YOU do? (Please, make me feel better!)
