OCD . . not officially diagnosed

I don't know if this falls into the category of OCD EXACTLY . . but I find it hard to part with things, purely physical THINGS without some sort of goodbye.

Case in point, today at work, I took my 2005 calendar down to hang up my new 2006 Lighthouse calendar (that I snagged for $1 at Target!). I felt bad simply tossing the old calendar in the trash. I had to kind of hold it for a moment and then give it a kiss before throwing it away.

Get that look off of your face. I know that's not normal.

Happy New Year.

At least you throw yours away! I stick my in a drawer for a few years only to clean out that drawer 3 or 4 years later just to throw it way then.

I know....that's even more not normal!!

At least you throw yours away. I don't....I have calendars for the last 10 or 12 years. It's sort of fun to look back at them from time to time (when they float to the top of the junk pile) top see what I was doing on this day 10 years ago. I KNOW that's not normal! I am definitely a junk collector.

I cut mine up on New Years eve and use it as confetti. But, there are a few things that I do that make me wonder if I have a hint of OCD. Like, walking in the snow tonight, carying grocceries, I had to make 3 trips and I couldn't step over the same tracks I used before. There are others, but you don't want to hear them.

I usually keep mine a year, why I have no idea.

Wanna hear OCD, though never officially diagnosed either.

I check my locks & gas stove several times at night before i go to bed.

I have this look on my face because you actually spent $1 on a calendar!

Happy New Year OCD! Cheers, ;)

How FUNNY! No, it's NOT normal but I do the same thing. I actually have some saved, God knows where, lol!

I just changed out the pages of my day timer and thought for a second before I tossed them out. I must have that OCD condition too.

Have a fabulously wonderful and healthy New Year!

yeah, I can't throw mine away either. THey stay for quite some time.

Excuse me while I go dig myself out of a mountain of other things I can't throw away.

Happy New Year!

I do the same thing.

Oddly, I can remember a lot of what I've given away to charity before moves, evven though I would never need those things again. Like the super cute, litle pink sea-shell flower pot I bought once at a second hand store, never used, and finally forced myself to give away. Yet I can describe it perfectly, can't I?
