The Apple Doesn’t Fall Far from the Neurotic Tree

I love things to be clean, neat & organized. My owner’s manuals (and recipes) are in page protectors inside binders, divided by category tabs. I love an excuse to use my label maker, and I can’t help but drool over beautifully organized closets and pantries. Give me a shopping spree in an office supply store/container store and I’d be happy as a clam.


So, I couldn’t help but laugh when my son started lining up his cars! My husband would make fun of me because I like to eat my food in a certain order, and when I have something with colors/flavors (Skittles, Mike & Ikes) he would watch me and try to predict which I would eat next. Would I keep the colors even, or would I eat a flavor I like least, first? (I don’t do this anymore because I don’t get to eat candy any more, my kids would just take it, LOL.)


When my son did this to his Annie’s chocolate/vanilla bunny cookies/crackers, I had to take a picture & send it to my husband.

Now if only he will turn out to be more “organizer” and less “pack rat” (like my daughter)…hee hee!
