We're all a little crazy..

When I saw that Michelle was hosting a "Does that make me crazy?" link-up, I just knew that I HAD to participate. A local radio station here in Dallas actually does a segment on this, and it never fails to make me laugh!

So, here goes!




I can't go to sleep at night until I've checked to make sure that the stove and oven are turned off.. even if I haven't used them that day.

Sneezing while driving scares the living daylights out of me.

I don't like for my food to touch, and I eat it in a certain order. It just tastes better that way.

When I eat candy (M&Ms, Reese's Pieces, Skittles, etc.) I sort them out my colors, and eat only even numbered amounts.

When I take pictures of myself, I always take 2. One with my eyes really big while I smile and another where I don't do anything but smile, I don't change my eyes. Then, I see which one I like best before I post it.

If I can't delete an email right away, I will make a folder to put it in. I absolutely hate having emails sitting in my inbox.

So, you tell me - do these things make me crazy?!

Oh my gosh ... I sort my candies too! and I can't stand having emails in my inbox. I deal with them right away and file them. It is seriously like torture to have emails in my inbox!

I do the same thing before I leave the house...check the stove, lights, straightener, and door lock haha.

I don't like my food to touch either!! (and that'll probably be on my post that I'm writing now)

And I also sort my candy out!!

OMG love when Kidd Kraddick does this bit.... makes me laugh out loud... I like to pop zits does that make me crazy?

Life With Lauren said...

LOL I check the stove every night too even if I have not used it. Have a great day!

R said...

The food touching thing is one of my biggest OCD issues. It's what has me freaked out about boot camp. What if my food touches and I had to eat mixed stuff!

You would probably hate looking at my email inbox. I currently have 193 unread items and I get to it when I get to it....lol

J said...

I don't like my food to touch either, and I eat one thing at a time. The Hubs thinks it's funny to make my plate for me and make sure everything touches. It drives me crazy!

The Vintage Modern Wife said...

Have you seen those awesome food divider things? You put them on your plate when you're plating your food so they don't touch. Then, when all your food is on the plate, you remove the divider. I feel like you need this! lol

Oh gosh..reading this made me feel so much better! As a child, before going to bed I had to be the one to check all the doors/windows etc were locked, and stove turnd off (apparently I couldn't just trust my parents to do it, I insisted I had to see it with my own eyes, haha), and while I don't mind if my food touches, I do eat it in a certain order - I am not a 'mixer'. For example, I will eat all of my potato, then all of my steak, then all of my carrots and so on - no idea why, and I know it is completely random, but I don't even notice I am doing it anymore until people point it out (and think I am strange, hehe).
Love link ups like this, it makes me feel like my particular brand of crazy isn't so crazy after all - its fun!

Amy said...

found you via the link up!
Fun story {to only scare you further! ha} about sneezing while driving. A friend of mine did that and got in an accident and broke her arm & nose...you're welcome! :)
Ever since she told me that i'm petrified as well, hah!

Neely said...

I only eat candy in even number and same colors too

SEL said...

I always take more than one pic too, but I look ridiculous in both, so it doesn't even matter.

I'm totally with you on the email thing. I can't stand having any number on my screen saying I have emails. It makes me feel anxious. But my husband? Has had over 100 emails as a notification and it doesn't bother him. UGH.

Nicole said...

Here's what makes me crazy: When I'm sharing ketchup with someone (like to dip your fries in), I like to keep it in a nice, neat pile. It drives me NUTS when someone comes in, fries a-blazin, and smears ketchup all over the plate. Crazy I tell ya!

Nina said...

wow I love your list. they absolutely don't make you crazy. I love that everyone has these cute little flaws :-) Me for example I can't stand when people eat on the couch - I always feel the need to clean up afterwards or have a look if something fell off!
Also when I use the stove I have to double check if I turned it off correctly - even have to look 2 or 3 times. Have the same issue with my care - I always go back and try the door handle if its really locked - crazy or cautious ?? !!

Leeann @ Join the Gossip said...

Lol I'm the same with food. I get so grossed out at Thanksgiving when people mix their food together!!

Julie said...

I think we talked about this before but I hate hate hate my food touching also - icky! I'm kinda OCD about my inbox too, I like it cleaned up as soon as I can get it that way also.

Michelle @ The Vintage Apple said...

You're SO STINKIN cute Amber! I hate sneezing when I drive!!!! I'm so convinced I'm gonna run off the road!!!!

Thanks for linking up!!!

I'm the same with emails but at work I just can't come up with a folder for everything. It annoys me but a ton of folders annoy me too!

JKT said...

I HATE sneezing while driving! It freaks me out- definitely NOT crazy. I hate having a cluttered inbox too BUT I kinda use my inbox as my 'to dos' so I don't file anything until it's done. It kinda stresses me out! I need a new system...

Jeannie Clemens said...

None of it makes you crazy...however, you probably have made your kids crazy, my kids claim I made them crazy. Hmm.

JMc said...

Oh I hate emails sitting in my inbox too! The inbox is just for things that I need to reply to or resolve in some way or another. Then it either gets deleted or moved to a folder.

emt817ftw said...

You have no idea how much better your post made me feel. My kids make fun of me for the way I eat my M&Ms. Even colors till the end! Sneezing doesn't bother me at all, but I hate, hate balloons. They scare the livin "you know what" outta me. I also will NOT leave anything in my inbox. My philosophy is "do it, delegate it, or dump it". I take it very seriously.
