I have to have certain routines in my day. For example if I don't do things in a certain order I might forget something.
Take for example my shower routine:
1. Get the water to the right temperature
2. Get into the shower
3. Wash my hair
5. Put conditioner in my hair
6. Put noxema on my face
7. Wash my body
8. Rinse conditioner out of my hair
9. Rinse noxema off of my face
10. Rinse the rest of my body
11. Pat dry slightly
12. Put my hair up in the towel
13. Slather on lotion
14. Pull hair out of towel
15. Finish patting dry
Do you know what happens if I wash my body first? I have been know to put shampoo on my washcloth and body wash in my hair.
I have to get dressed a certain way, go to work a certain way, etc.
Not following routines has caused me once or twice to go to work without my glasses, without makeup (scary), without my jewelry, and even once recently without brushing my teeth (gross!) - no Dory I do not have a toothbrush and bottle of water in my car for just such an occasion ;) but I did have flossers in the car and some minty fresh gum.
I guess I am 'haunted' by routines. My whole day can be off if I don't follow certain routines.
Are there certain routines that you are 'haunted' by?
