Day 12: Something I'm OCD about...

30 Days About Me

Psh- I WISH I was OCD about SOMETHING. I am definitely NOT a neat-freak or a germ-a-phobe or anything like that.  I don't care if my vacuum lines are walked on or not straight. I'm ok with my random piles of papers on my desk.  My family probably wishes I had just a little OCD, but alas... they are out of luck. I tried to think of something I do a lot or worry about on a regular basis. This is what I came up with:

  • I brush my teeth. A lot. I have ever since I got braces back when I was 12. I mean, I brushed them before that, but now I brush them at least 4 times a day. I don't like to have a not-clean feeling in my mouth. I brush right when I wake up, after I eat breakfast, another random time during the day, when I shower at night, and usually again after that. I CANNOT go to bed without having just brushed my teeth. It feels gross.

  • I check locks. I lock and re-lock my car doors when I get in the car. I lock them on my way out-- I inadvertently lock my kids in the car before they can get out on a regular basis.  I deadbolt the front door immediately when I come home. And it bothers me that my backdoor isn't locked all the time because the dog and kids are running in and out. I like things locked. It's safer. I guess I am pretty OCD about my safety in general. Ask my husband. He's the cop and I helped him prepare a class on personal safety. He taught a bunch of my tricks. ;) 


All in all I guess these aren't bad things to be "OCD" about, if you'd even call it that. I honestly couldn't think of anything else. What are you OCD about?
