Eccentricity Or An Aging Habit?

You see, I put the dates when it was purchased, on things like electric fan, rechargeable fan, lotion and other products. That is because I want to know for how long are we using it and have used it already when it becomes suddenly un-operational. I also fix the bills of my money in my wallet according to denomination and with their fronts facing my sight. I cannot leave our bedroom without seeing to it that the pillows and blankets are properly arranged and the bedsheet straightened well. I also wash my hands well after I have urinated or have touched money or anything. And maybe this is why my hands’ veins are big and sp visible already. I put things back from where they are kept, always. And my bag has become bigger because I put a lot of essential things I think I will be needing. Well, I guess I am eccentric as well as getting old already, that’s why I am like this. What about you, do you have any eccentricities or habits you think is already part of getting old, or is weird?

Yes, I can organize your things well. Provided that you will help so you will know where are the places of storage for everything.

You should be the boss now, but if only you are younger, many employer will hire a secretary, bookkeeper and treasurer like you. But of course, of you are the boss, you want that your secretary will be like that.

@ilocosboy actually my boss made me the HRD head before. But she retrieved me when she noticed that I am so pro employee. I don't want too much responsibility too so i told her to just retain me as her EA. She did and also made me one of the auditors.

I have lots of weird habits and eccentricities, but I am going to give them all up and adopt your eccentricities. They are so much better than mine.

Fortunately, most perishable products have expiration dates on them, because I am a stickler like you. It is not part of getting old, it's just having good habits. My bed is made the minute I awaken, the bathroom to our master bedroom cleaned daily, and hand washing before, after, and throughout the day. I even was my hands before giving the cats treats and afterwards. lol

I am glad, I am not eccentric, after all. I think because we are just making sure that what we buy is still good, we see to it that it is not expired yet. Yes, the bed has to be made also when I awaken, and it is also what I required my hubby the moment he wakes up, which he would forget to do sometimes so I make it the moment I see it unmade. You really love your cat because you make sure your hands are clean when you give them their treats. Well, that's also part of being hygienic.

@SIMPLYD We have a rule. Last one out of bed makes it. It's usually me, but my husband is fastidious and makes the bed very well. lol Yes, I treat the cat as if her were my baby. Too bad he chases the treats and eats them off the floor. Ha ha!!!

You sound normal to me. I also put dates on things when we buy them. Paper towels, toilet paper, or anything we buy in bulk I do this for. It gives me estimates of how long I used them and how much bang I got for my buck. I do keep my cash sorted in the right denomination from least to highest and all bills facing forward. I wash my hands and face frequently.

I am glad to know that what I am doing are normal. Isn't it nice when you know how much is the usabilty of a product or an pliance that we have at home. And how nice indeed when our cash is well sorted out in the right denomination in our wallet. And also i forgot, to know exactly how much we have in our wallet at all times. With washing of hands and face aren't the veins in your hands protruding because of that?

@SIMPLYD I really like knowing what I have on hand and how much what I buy is really saving me or costing me in the long run. I turn it into a game. No, I have never noticed my veins protruding because of washing my hands and face often. I must admit that after washing, I normally use lotion on my hands and a moisturizer on my face.

I really cannot stand any clutter., and that occurred when I was older. I make sure that everything is in its place and leave nothing lying around the house. Right now, I see my shoes, side by side, are not in the closet, and I have to put them in there right away! I am not that particular about other things, but I do need everything in its place.

I am so like you too.Everything , should always be n its proper place. So, when hubby just leave things, I would be annoyed and tell him that he should put things always in proper order. And that I become tired of his ways. So, he would now arrange his things well, whenever he used them.

So you have same habit as me. Then itis justa normal thing to do. Really you have a sewing kit in your bag before. Me, I have one at my drawer in the office. And it is so useful. My officemates would borrow it every now and then. I also have a cleaning nail kit complete with a nipper.

You are not eccentric. I also want to be sure the bedroom is cleaned and properly arranged before starting my other works. I wash my hands before and after I go to the toilet, you never know what you have touched, better not to risk an infection.

My daughter told me that I am an OCD because I keep on cleaning our bedroom and wants everything in order. Eccentric is someone who acts not ordinarily or weirdly. Like that of Jack Nicholson in one movie where he would see to it that he steps in the very same place where he stepped the previous days. ha ha ha

A mother would indeed be so proud if her child is so organized with his things. SHe has less clutter to clean and put into order.

It's not eccentricity putting things in order, marking things for evaluation. It's how to organize things and since yiu have practiced them over the years, they become now your habit. It hasn't to do with old age, though senior citizens are manifesting some sorts of forgetfulness.

And to that, I am assured now, that it's not eccentricity. I think indeed when we are used to being organized and systematic it becomes our habit. As to forgetfulness, I am not. Though, sometimes I lack focus. One moment I am doing something, but when I see something, I would go to it to do it only to remember I haven't finished yet with the first one. Although, I remember going back to it.

Ithink everyone of us wash our hands whenever we come from the bathroom. It's part of hygiene. As to the foods, we don't buya lot. we let the helper go to rhe market to buy produce good only for 3 -4 days. But that is a very good habit pf yours.
