{ I ♥ OCD Tendencies }

So most people that know me would find it hard to believe that I am indeed a little OCD. Questionable right? Wrong. My OCD manifests itself in some very odd ways.

Such as the fact that whenever I am at the doctor's office I HAVE to straighten and fan out the magazines according to genre. I have a great system that I use.....Woman's magazines followed by the In Touch & US magazines followed by the health related mags and so forth. Who does that? Me.

Or how at night when I go to bed I have to take two bottles of water with me for the nightstand. Why two you ask? Well see one bottle inevitably will develop this disgusting after taste somewhere between 1 am and 4 am and I can no longer drink it, hence bottle number 2 comes in handy. If I didn't have that second bottle readily available I would then end up having this much too long debate on whether it was going to be worth it to go all the way downstairs just for water or if I could just deal with the bad after taste and would end up never being able to fall back to sleep. No comment please.

But by far I am the most OCD when it comes to my closet. You see I love my closet, it has it's own window and heating vent and it perfectly fits all my shoes. I love it so much that I can barely stand having any of Geoff's clothes in their. In fact the only clothes I let him keep in their are church clothes. Don't worry he has a decent closet in the extra bedroom. But anyway back to my closet. I have organized all my clothes by color and lengh of sleeves and this system has worked pretty well for me for several years. I can find what I'm looking for and don't have to waste time. Now this is where is gets ugly......

Today I came home and not only had Geoff put my laundry away in my closet ALL wrong but Carma the cat got in the closet and in an attempt to get to the top shelf tried to climb up my clothes with her little kitty claws and pulled so many of them off the hangers to the floor. It was a disaster.

And that my friends is why I love OCD tendencies....because clothes on the floor and in the wrong spots can cause me to have a little meltdown that lasts at leat 20 minutes!

{ What??? }

So I opened my email box that is linked to this account tonight and it was FLOODED with messages from my friends saying that I have been leaving them odd comments on their blogs. Upon further investigation I determined that someone is leaving comments from ME but it's really not from ME. Weird huh? So I changed my password but I don't think that it's the problem, it's like they are commenting and just using my name and blog link. I talked with my friend Jill and she said that the same type situation happened to her two weeks ago. What is going on? So anyone that gets a odd comment from me please disregard it and let me know so that I can try to let Blogger know so that they can fix the problem.

Thanks, Linds

{ Kitty? Anyone? }

I love animals.

That being said I can be found quite often chasing some lost dog down Ammon Rd. trying to help him/her find their way back home via me.

The dog tag licensing office in Bonneville County knows my cell phone number by heart I call them so much.

I seriously can't tell you how many times I have been late to work because I was on my way and had to stop to try to get some stubborn dog into my car so that he/she wouldn't have to die on the road that day.

Geoff is at the point where everytime I pull back into the driveway and tell him I found a "lost" dog/cat/bunny/cow/parakeet I'm pretty sure he mentally is hitting me in the head with a frying pan. Mostly because after I give him the above named animal I head back to work and he is left to deal.

All of that being said you can imagine the situation I was placed in when my little sis and her friend Kinze showed up at my house the other day with Carma. Carma is a tiny kitten that Kinze's dog found. She was so young that her eyes were not even open yet so Kinze bottle-feed her for however long. Well long story short: Kinze's dad said that the kitten is big enough now that it's got to go....and my sister knowing my vulnerability decided to con me into taking it. Who am I kidding it didn't take very much conning. Anyway here is the problem, Geoff is at work for two days and I haven't mentioned that we have an additional family member here yet. So I'm thinking I'll wait till he gets home and see's the kitten walking around and just tell him I have no idea where it came from? Sounds like an amazing idea right? That's what I thought.

On the off chance that this idea doesn't pan out the way I forsee it, does anyone want a really cute, housebroke gray tabby cat named Carma?

{ E.L.F. Addiction }

So has anyone ever tried E.L.F. make-up products? I bought some at Target a while back on a whim cause they had some fun colors and get this...they are ALL only a dollar. That's right every single product is one buck. So Here are some of my favorite products of theirs so far.

So here is the website E.L.F. and here are some great coupon codes ......if you spend $15.00 or more you can enter "CAROLINA" and get $7.00 off your total which covers your shipping (which is $6.95) ~OR~ if you spend $25.00 or more you can enter "FREEBRUSH" to get a cool professional brush set. FYI you can't use both coupon codes at once so you'll have to choose! Plus I think currently they are doing BOGO (buy one product get one half off) Hurry Over!!
