Rochelle tagged me so here you go! I'm supposed to list 6 quirky things about myself. Link back to the person who tagged me. List the rules on my blog, and tag 6 "unsuspecting" bloggers to do the same.

Here I am in all my quirkiness.....
1. I constantly organize and then reorganize my piles. I have "crap" piles everywhere. Piles and piles of paper everywhere. I can't throw anything out unless I've looked/gone through it. I am constantly organizing things into separate piles. Piles to be filed, piles to be shredded, piles of junk mail, etc. Can you say paper overload??? Seriously, I can not believe how much "paper" comes into our house each day, and how much of it is garbage. I can fill a grocery sack of paper garbage a day.

2. I can stay up until 2 or 3 in the morning, and get up at 7:00 to start the day and get the kids off to school like I never missed a beat. Sometimes I've been known to stay up all night and never goto bed until the next day at bedtime and can still function like a normal human being.

3. I am a very last minute person. I often force myself to work under pressure because for some reason, instead of getting the task done early, I wait until the last minute to finish it up. It's not necessarily procrastination, because I don't wait until the last minute to start. I will start the "prepping" for my task well in advance, it is just the completing it in advance that I struggle with.

4. I CANNOT watch "my t.v." shows with anyone in the room talking. I CANNOT watch "my t.v." shows unless I start from the beginning. If I miss the first 5 minutes-nope can't do it. I wait until it is up on the internet where I can watch the FULL episode. (Wish we had DVR.) And I HATE it when people comment (whether it be good or bad, nice or mean, whatever) while watching "my t.v." show. It ruins the mood for me, and sometimes they talk right when someone on the show is talking and I miss what they said. Now that really bugs me. Also, if there is a commercial, and my hubby starts channel surfing, it really annoys me when he changes it back to my show and it has already started (even if it was only 5 sec. into it.) I have to see commercial before the show starts back up. What are "my shows"? Right now: Survivor, Gray's, Top Model, Biggest Loser.

5. I hate to clean the kitchen so bad that I would rather clean the entire house, or mow the lawn.

6. I am what I call a bargain shopper. I am not one to walk into a store pick up the first item I'm looking for and then go pay for it. I have to hunt the store for a sale, or for something similar to it, to see how the items compare one to another, and which one is the better price. I am the most frugal person I know. Maybe this has something to do with my coupon obsession.

I tag, whomever would like to share their quirks.

Love your quirks. We're a lot alike with the paper piles and our obsession with a good deal...although you are even MORE frugal than I am. I have seen your coupon blog. Very impressive.:)

You are definitely like Betty - can't throw anything away, haha.

I also am a bargain shopper and cannot watch my t.v. shows unless I'm alone without any distractions.
