So cute haha I'm not nearly that bad!
Another clue that I'm more about words than design (as if there were any doubt)-- I've been know to choose paint colors (wall or nail) based on their name over their color.
My son's room is Blue Dart, our family room is Chocolate Cheesecake, I chose Armed and Ready for my nephew's military-themed birthday party...words.
"Q-tips, ice cream, soy nut butter" over and over and over again = my last 3 minutes shopping at Wegmans.
I get super mad when I forget something. Especially something as important as those 3 things.
Measure twice, cut once.
Or, in my case, measure 4 times, then cut while panicking that it's wrong and you're ruining everything.
Reassure me when I ask later- the curling iron is off, my house is not burning down.
These things actually do make me happy. And if that is wrong, I don't want to be right :)
Little Guy couldn't go to sleep because his (usually OCD) aunt made his bed with the sheet upside-down hahaha. Totally my kid.
I think I'm pretty organized and efficient. I know what things I can multi-task, and what needs my undivided attention. Some may say there's a method to my 'madness'. I'm a fast worker because of that.
Here's where that becomes a problem...
Gmail recently changed their messaging. It totally threw me off (and I still don't think it's an improvement). It's not that I can't learn new things, or that I'm technilogically-challenged, it's just that I have to literally reprogram my brain/fingers to click in a different sequence/pattern. It took me about two weeks to adapt.
And just when I did, Wegmans totally rearranged the store. These two things don't seem related, but they are. Stay with me, here.
I write my shopping list in shopping order. As we run out of bananas, it goes at the top of the list since produce is at the front of the store; powdered sugar goes at the bottom because baking supplies are at the end of my route, or at least they were. I went in last week and was greeted by a whole new set up. I walked in circles at least 3 times, despite the iPad-equipped employees who were directing traffic (at least I wasn't the only one). I hate wasting time!
So is there such thing as being too organized? Too rigid? Sadly, I think there is.
