Quirks

Matt tells me I have issues. I do, but doesn't everyone have their own little quirks? I like to have a few certain things my way in my house. Some people label that OCD. Why can't we call it CHS - clean housekeeper syndrome or something? Anyway, I will not rattle off my list of particulars - thank goodness. But I do want to share something a little weird. I am a little interested in numbers, but more importantly how long things last in my house.

When I get our electric bill, I look at how many kilowatt hours of electricity I use and divide it by 30 days because I like to know that number - how many kilowatt hours we use in a day and how much $$ we spend a day on electricity. (last bill about $1.52/day) The gas bill already comes with that number for me - how much gas we use in an average day. I know in my mind how much money per day our house costs us to live in - our house payment (every 2 weeks) divided by 14 days.

It isn't that I am majorly pinching pennies, I just like to know what that per day number is. That is one of my quirks, not necessarily CHS, but a definite quirk.

So here is one I did for the past few months:
I wanted to know how many loads of laundry I do. Plain and simple. I was interested in that number. So when I opened a new package of fabric softener dryer sheets on January 19th, I wrote that date on the box with a sharpie. I use a sheet in every single batch of laundry I do, so I know that it is an accurate number. Well, on June 13th I finished off the box. 120 dryer sheets and 145 days. Interesting . . . I do 120 batches of laundry in about 5 months. Or just to make it fun, .823 loads of laundry everyday. Not sure how that could happen, but that is the number I wanted.

You are wrong with your numbers! I believe I did two loads of laundry at your house and I often put in two dryer sheets per load, then again, sometimes I only put in 1/2 of a dryer sheet! I will never tell what I did! HEE HEE
