Habits...

As things are about to change in my household, can't help but think how humans are creatures of habits. Everyone has em' and some have more than others. I just never really thought about all mine before.

Long story short... Married almost 7 years, 2.5 of them without living with my husband. In 2 weeks, that's changing. Leaving me to ponder what disgusting, embarrassing or annoying habits I have come to acquire in that amount of time.

Could it be singing several different songs a day, mostly cued off a phrase that someone says. The way I sleep...Heating pad, the pillow arrangements, feet hanging out. The ever so dreaded leave the dishes in the sink till I get time to wash them. That's been pointed out...A few times...
Gosh, what else? Way too many to mention. I can't think of any OCD like habits, I don't go around a check things 3 times and another time to make it an even number. Although I like even numbers...Feels balanced.

I was singing my little heart out one night, then it occurred to me that someone will be able to hear me do this again. My night ritual is reading blogs, emails and (Oh my goodness) checking My Space and writing more messages. Sometimes...Looking at more....Is that all gonna change? Should it change? I don't want to change all of them. Should a person change their routines or habits for another? As long as it's not life endagering, why should you, right?

Oh, another bad habit, I unfortunately am a smoker. Yuck, nasty, I know better. I had a man with a trach coughing all over the place today. ALL FROM SMOKING. But, I continue. Usually right before bed, after eating and driving. I promised I would quit. One habit which is good to change....

So, I sit and wonder what other wonderful habits I have and if I'm the only one that acquired some. We shall see...At least I don't smell my socks after I take them off. I could do something weird like that.
