Random Acts of Shifeness


  • Two things that don't help my OCD: First thing "House of Cards." Netflix released "House of Cards" last weekend and I tried to resist but I binge-watched that show in one weekend. Did a lot of camping in the living room and what is worth it? Nope but I did it and now I can move onto something else to obsess over.
  • The second thing: My kids. We have two light switches that turn on the kitchen lights. I use the one in the kitchen so when the lights are on or off, the switches are facing the same direction. Hayden and Kyle insist on using the one in the dining room so that the light switch in the kitchen looks like this: 


  • Would this drive anyone else nuts? Well it's making me crazy and I just noticed how the screws are not turned in the same direction so I'm going to have to fix that problem. I might have issues.
    • I was doing some Googling to find a song to listen to in the morning to help me get my mind right and start the day in a positive mood. Well based on what the "experts" think is a great song to get your day going, I have come to the conclusion that I would be buying a new alarm clock if I heard "Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go" at the butt crack of dawn or I would probably end up in jail for assault as someone is going to end up with a shoe horn in their ass if "Walking On Sunshine" is the first song I heard in the morning. Here's the link if you want to see their list of suggested songs. 
    • Hayden and Kyle were having a conversation in the back seat of the car on why it was important to wear your sear belt. Hayden didn't want to wear one and Kyle informed her that the police would give her a ticket as well as take her away to live with a new family. Those penalties didn't faze Hayden. Then Kyle told her they wouldn't be able to play together anymore. Hayden was still not persuaded. Finally Kyle won her over by letting her know that she wouldn't get any more smoothies. Victory for big brother.
    • Random fact of the day: "Don't Stop Believin'" has received more thumbs up than any other song on Pandora. Over 20 million. I like that song a lot but not when I watch these people sing it, http://www.rsvlts.com/2015/03/03/dont-stop-believin-karaoke/
    • Quote of the week: If I'm ever on life support, unplug me. Then plug me back in and see if that works. - Bill Murray

    Hayden saying hello and wishing you a great weekend. Also the scene of the great seatbelt debate with her big brother, Kyle. And the old, creepy dude ... well that's me. 

    Thanks for stopping by. 



    I will persevere. I will keep moving forward. I will be the stream.

    They make covers that you can put on just one side of a switch, but that would be just mean :)

    When we moved in our house there were switches that went to outlets (to turn them off and on). We would flip the switches and couldn't figure out what they went to. It took a couple of years to figure that out when certain outlets wouldn't work until we flipped the switch. I'd like to meet the person who thought up that idea.

    Yes. I have a light switch in the hallway that I do that exact same thing with, right down to the screws being turned the same way. Not sure if it's an ocd thing... Maybe a Dad thing?

    I KNOW HOW YOU FEEL.... I have two light switches in my kitchen. One is there in case we come in the back way!!!! NOT my idea, you understand, they came with the house. Anyway, I am hell to live with if those switches are out of sync.

    Love the way Kyle handles things!

    The switch thing wouldn't bother me, but I always make sure the screws are the same when I install something, so that means it's completely normal. ;)

    There use to be a Food Lion(?) commercial where they would sing
    "Good morning, good morning" and whistle in a super cheerful way, it made me want to destroy the TV, a terrible way to start the day.

    The light switch thing would bother me too, but not the screws. The screws is where it looks like you might have a screw loose. But don't we all.

    I have nothing to say about light switches but about "House of Cards". I watched the seasons out of order. It went 2, 1, and then 3. But when season 3 came out, my boyfriend and I watched all thirteen episodes of it the day they came out. At the end of the day when we were finished, it was past midnight and I was both tired and anxious to know what would happen in season 4!
