Is it just me?

I make a to-do list, so I can remember what needs to be done in a day.  If I end up doing something that wasn’t on the list, I will add it to the list, so I can mark it off the list.

It sounds weird, but it helps me feel like I accomplished more during the day.

Does anyone else add things to their list, just so they can mark them off the list?  Maybe it’s just me.  Maybe I’m weird.


Odd Man Out

I admit to feeling like the odd man out, at times.  It seems like I have nothing in common with my family.  I love my family and I mean no disrespect.  However, we clash on a regular basis.

I enjoy spending my days writing and letting my mind wonder.  I spend a lot of time reading.  My sleeping schedule is at odds with the rest of my family.  I have a tendency to ignore rules or view them as suggestions.  I like to shake things up and do stuff that seems silly or even stupid.  Also, I tend to drive my own family members crazy.

I have wondered if I was switched at birth.  Maybe my parents took home the wrong baby, but I look so much like my family that’s probably not the answer.  Maybe I am pulling from some long forgotten recessive gene.  Whatever the answer, I am the weird one in the family.
