I’m the type of person that likes to do what I hate the most first. I like to get it out of the way. For some reason, I hate to set the table. When I worked, I did it before I went to work so when I got home, it was already done.
Now that I’ve gotten older there are just certain things that really bother me. I can’t imagine having a sink full of dirty dishes. I hate the way that looks and I think about it until I do them. So, for me, I do them as they get dirty, they never pile up. When I’m done with my coffee for the day, I get it ready for tomorrow. I go even one step further, I also get my filter ready for the next day. So I always have coffee ready to go if someone comes over and wants it.
If I’m emptying the dishwasher, instead of putting all the dishes away, I’ll set the table no matter what time it is. Even at noon!! I won’t always set it set it but I will put the dishes, silverware and glasses on the table instead of having to get them out later. When I go to bed at night, I’m completely ready for when I get up. I have my coffee cup sitting upside down with my spoon on a napkin so all I have to do is POUR THE DELICIOUS start up fuel I need, right-now….right-now!!
I guess what I’m saying is if I can get anything ready ahead of time, that’s what I do. If I know I have to set my alarm, I set it a day ahead. I like to know what I’m wearing a week (well, maybe not a week!!!) ahead so I can make sure it’s ready. I plan meals days in advance. I don’t wait until my gas gauge says empty, I fill it before it’s empty. I’m just not good at flying by the seat of my pants and I worry about the little things I have to do so I get them out of the way as soon as I can.
Am I a weirdo???? Is there anyone else out there like me????
