Random Tuesday. Weird habits?

Since it has been dead around here, I'm just going to bring up a random topic. Tell us something about yourself that is a little strange. For example, a weird habit.

I'll start. If I wash my feet right before I go to bed, it makes me feel more relaxed and I can sleep better. Strange, but true.

  • I won't blow my nose (unless sick). I don't like the feeling. However, I thoroughly clean my nose out with qtips after every shower. I love a clean nose.

  • When I order a burger, I will disassemble it and eat each piece separately. Ex. Top of bun, then lettuce, tomato, etc.

    Haha, wow. That is strange.

    :) I don't do it all the time but most of the time. It is usually at sit down restaurants not fast food.

  • I always count my steps when walking. I've done so since I was a child. Like, it takes me 48 steps to get from the top of my stairs down to my laundry room, it takes me 74 steps to get from my parking spot at work to the time clock, etc. And I count them everyday expecting a change...but nope. Hah.

  • If I hear metal on metal scratching or something scratching on metal, I can "feel" it in my ears. I also have to negate the sound by making a less bothersome sound myself, like plastic on plastic or tapping my fingernails on something, otherwise the feeling the noise thing won't go away until I do.

    Weirdo, huh?

    @bandbgrams‌ I'm the same way with certain sounds. Like teeth grinding or a fork on a plate! *shudder*

    I also have to "negate" the sound!!

    Same here except to negate the sound I press on my ears.

    I also get weird joy out of cleaning between Patrick's fingers and toes.

  • I have a really specific bed time routine for myself. I have to do it every night, and I have to do it in the right order. It goes brush teeth, wash feet, wash face, brush hair, take ONE drink of water, lay down. If I get interrupted I have to start over, or I can't sleep.

  • When I see one of those abacus things for kids (the ones where some beads follow a maze like track) I have an obsessive urge to try it myself. IT doesn't go away until I do it so sometimes if I see one waiting at the doctor's office I'll pretend to be helping my toddler do it so I can satisfy the urge

    I also stand on the outsides of my feet when I brush my teeth. But only then.
    I totally do this too. No idea why. Always have.

  • I cant wear socks - they make my feet feel weird.  Like I go out in the snow in sneakers with no socks because I would rather have cold feed than wear socks. 




  • I have to put lotion on my feet every night before bed otherwise I can't sleep. Also, if I get up in the middle of the night, I cannot return to the same sleep position I just left. I have to switch sides otherwise I can't get back to sleep. 
  • I have to sleep with a floor fan to make some noise, DH always gets hot anyways even when it's -20 degrees outside. I'm a light sleeper and can't stand hearing my DH breathe next me.
    I also am a vacuum crazy lady. I vacuum every other day and sometimes before work. I don't know what it is but I love my 2 dogs but can't stand dog hair on floors etc.

  • I have to drink milk from a glass cup. It absolutely cannot be plastic or Styrofoam or paper. The thought grosses me out. Other drinks I have no issue with. ..just milk.

  • When I'm driving on a road with utility poles, I try to pinpoint when my car is exactly in the middle of the poles. It keeps me occupied when it's a boring road.

  • @peanutmuse, if I shower in the morning on the rare occasion (I'm a nighttime showerer), I will wash my feet so I don't "dirty" my sheets...esp if I wear sandals out that day. It definitely is more relaxing, agreed.

  • When I go to bed, I need to have at least three pillows---one under my head, one on the right side of my head, and one on my left side to snuggle with.  I also must have one foot sticking out of the covers.  If any of these are missing, I sleep horribly.

    i clench my jaw too when i cuddle my dogs or talk to.them. i noticed when lo was a newborn i did that with him too.
    i rub my feet together while falling asleep.
  • I'm also afraid of the monsters under my bed and must have my feet covered when sleeping.

    I redo Abby's diaper over and over again until the sticker parts are straight on both sides and her diaper is super straight on.

    I've said this before, but I have to put groceries on the convey belt in together by what it is: refrigerator, freezer, cleaning/bathroom stuff, etc.

    I love picking Abby's nose or wiping eye snots from my pugs eyes with my bare fingers - I'm gross! I wash them immediately but I enjoy cleaning my babies like a monkey I guess.

  • I have to kiss (more like multiple smooches) my kids cheeks every time I pick them up. Even my 5 year old. They have the softest chubbiet cheeks that I just can't resist!

  • You all are nucking futs. H and I got in the habit of kissing three quick times when we say goodbye and now if we only kiss once It drives me crazy until we redo it. I also pick at H and the baby like a monkey. We have three light switches in the bathroom and all three have to be on if I'm in there, I hate the unbalanced light.

  • I don't do it every night, but I also love the feel of clean feet in the bed.

    I clean LO like a mama monkey - ears, toes, nails, I love it!

    I like a clean nose too - so I use a neti pot about 2x week in the winter. 

    And my personal one: I will obsessively touch one spot on my scalp. It's kind of where my hair whorl is. There are times when that spot just calls out to be touched and I must.touch.it with my finger or my fingernail.
