Own Up To The Odd

So, apparently great minds think alike, because just after I came up with Quirky Thursday, a friend of a friend came up with “Own up to the Odd” which is, essentially, a meme challenging people to confess to their special little quirks… along with it though, she’s setting up a link forum on her site, so you can go read about the weirdness of MANY people, and hopefully feel a little more confident in your own special oddities. Heeheehee!

Some more confessions of genuine weirdness from me:

I never thought this was unusual until other moms started telling me how weird I was…but laundry does not pile up at my house. Occasionally we’ve been known to run out of somebody’s socks (usually because he went through 2-3 pairs a day stomping in puddles or playing in snow). But in general, I do laundry one or two days a week. I do hate folding the clothes, but I don’t mind washing them.
I also don’t like anybody else to help with the laundry (except folding/putting away). I have my own little system and I have a really hard time not getting frustrated if somebody messes with it. I also get annoyed if someone drops an item into the wrong basket (we have separate baskets for the different loads).

I do not mind doing dishes or loading the dishwasher. I HATE unloading/putting them away. I do not know why this is, but it’s a big deal with me. One of the nicest things Hubby can do for me is put away the dishes, regardless of whether he washes the next batch.

Seriously...this not letting laundry pile up thing...I just can't relate. haha. I wish I would launder my clothes in an orderly fashion. Also, I HATE putting dishes up. HATE IT. :) I enjoyed your quirks.

Yeah, I hate putting the dishes away too. But I love thinking the dishwasher is clean (and not unloaded yet) and opening it up to see dirty dishes in there. Bizarre?

You can come do laundry in my house any day. Between 6 people and cloth diapers, I do at least 2 loads a day. Even Sundays.

Hm... Laundry seems to pile up around here even when I do a load a day! Maybe we have too many clothes?
I'm the opposite with washing, though, I'd rather fold and put away than man the machine. Of course our machine is currently in an unfinished basement accessed by outside stairs...
Thanks for sharing!
