More Molly McQuirky

Last week I introduced you to my "difficult twin" Molly McQuirky.
There are things in Molly's house that are always done the same way, every time.
These are the things that make Molly's little OCD heart sing.

Molly does her crossword puzzles in ink. Blue ink. Starting at the lower right-hand corner and working up to the top.
When Molly makes Peanut Butter Brownies, she lays out the Crack&M's in straight rows. Now that she is looking at this picture, she thinks there's something wrong in the way that there is no rhyme or reason to the color scheme of the reds, pinks and whites. Unsettling, to say the least.

The rolling scrapbook cart. It has slots and pockets and the best part of all is the little loops to organize the Sharpie collection. Isn't is pretty?

This is how the grocery list gets made. Item, size, sale price, coupons.
The list is made on an envelope with the coupons inside.
It always looks this way. It must always look this way. If it doesn't, Molly makes it look this way.
You don't think Molly is weird, do you? Her mother does.

The Molly in my house is 10 years old and ALWAYS arranges her sharpies/crayons/colored pencils first in ROY G BIV order. (That's red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet -- in case you don't have any obsessive compulsives in your house.)

i actually think that writing the grocery list on an envelope that include the coupons is a great idea!

maybe i'm weird too then.

You know, my friends tease me that I'm OCD and I always argue the point. But maybe they're right. Because before I read your caption about the brownie, I looked at the picture and immediately thought, there's no pattern to the M&Ms. That doesn't look right. sigh Alright, I'll go back to my therapist!

btw, LOVE the your name for M&Ms ... Crack&Ms! Ha!

I "fix" the toilet paper in OTHER people's houses! ;)

I thought the M&Ms looked a little off, too. Molly is quite the organized person when it comes to the things that matter. (I am amazed at the shopping list on the envelope with the coupons already inside. Wow.)

I don't think you're weird. At all.
