Check out this monster!
That would be my almost-to-big-for-my-mouth veggie burger bagelwich!
I wasn’t sure if I would be able to fit it all in my mouth (TWSS)…
But I dug deep and achieved victory!
On top of a toasted onion bagel, I enjoyed one of my favorite veggie burgers, topped with ketchup, mustard, relish, lettuce, tomato slices and sauerkraut.
I inhaled this lunch!

Weird Things I Do Daily
And now it’s time for some randomness!
As I took Sadie for her walk this morning, I started to think about some of the odd things I do day in and day out. I think everyone has a routine of some sort and habits they do each day.
Here are some of the odd things I find myself doing throughout any given day:
- I always wipe the doggie eye boogers out of Sadie’s eyes immediately after I wake up.
- I jam out to throwback CDs from my junior high and high school years as I get ready (think Alanis Morissette, ‘NSync, Night at the Roxbury soundtrack, Dave Matthews Band, OAR, etc.).
- I ask myself whether or not I really need to shower after the gym… and then I always do. I hate showering and am convinced I never would if I didn’t work out.
- I visit the Breast Cancer Site and click the big, pink button to give a woman a free mammogram.
- Whenever I leave the house, I always say, “Bye, bye Sadie. I love you, baby girl. Be good. I’ll be home soon.” She understands me.
- I think to myself that I should do more yoga.
- I take a bite out of one of the frozen bananas I have stored in the freezer and put it back into the bag while I’m making breakfast.
- I plan on making one thing for dinner in the morning and then change my mind after lunch (unless it’s a crock pot meal!).
- I have an internal debate as to whether or not I should try to convince Ryan to just eat fro yo for dinner with me. (This is every day. Seriously. Thank goodness all of our fro yo places are at least 10 minutes away or have awful parking arrangements.)
- I think about getting another dog and check vizsla rescue websites. Ryan banned me from sending him pictures of dogs that need rescuing. It makes him too sad. I tricked him into thinking I adopted a vizsla puppy about a month ago and he was actually really excited, so then I felt awful! He’s been wanting another dog for a while now, but I’m still nervous and apprehensive about it!
- I always have to kiss Ryan good night. We’ll often be up late talking and eventually I roll on my side and get so, so tired, but I always have to kiss him goodnight or I’ll feel like it’s bad luck and I’m jinxed or something. So strange.
- I pick at Sadie’s toenails and check her ears. She hates this. I think it’s the big sister in me coming out… I like to pester.
Question of the Afternoon
What is one odd thing that you do daily?
P.S. The Fashion page was updated this afternoon.
I think I do a lot of odd things, however I think I must do them so much that I don’t think they’re odd anymore!
I go OCD first thing in the am and use the dust-buster on my cats litter box room! haha!
I also always check my bank account and FB early am????
Every morning I tell my dog what day of the week it is. On Fridays I pick his paws up and we dance while singing friday!
That is adorable!
Katelyn @ Chef Katelyn says
Hahaha I am the saaaame way, I hate showering! It is just too much work. Slash I do that for my puppers toooo!
Chelsea @ Go Chelsea Go! says
I also wipe the eye boogers from my cats’ eyes, ask myself whether I really NEED to shower, and say goodbye to my cats 🙂
Haha! I do the same dog things too! My husband has to tell me to stop showing him dogs on petfinder on my iphone when we’re home. 🙂 And I also tell my doggie “Bye! Be a good boy, Mommy and Daddy will be back soon! Love you!”. He thinks it means “Go run outside and find the treats we hid for you!”. 🙂 He gets a scavenger hunt every morning!
I kiss my doggie on the head every night before she goes into her crate to sleep so she knows that I love her.
Mary @ Bites and Bliss says
Awwwe ,the “bye bye, sadie!” thing reminds me of what I do with my cat. I always says “I’ll be back soon, Chloe..you be good. I love you!”
kris (everyday oats) says
Haha, I really enjoyed reading all the odd things you do throughout the day. I really think if I didn’t work out everyday I’d never shower either. I just find it such a hassle!
Michelle @ Lifewithacrazypup says
1. I always HAVE to kiss Alex goodnight as well! Even if we’re frustrated with each other, we both know that a kiss is mandatory! When he’s gone (which is a lot 🙁 ) We “kiss” on facetime on our iphones. We’re lame!!
2. When I leave I always either say:
“Bye Hunter– be good! Momma loves you!”
“Cya next week Hunter. Or next month. Whenever I feel like comin’ home! Just kidding — see you in a few!”
I wash my feet every night before I get into bed – started in college when I was wearing flip flops all day walking to and from class. If I washed my feet before bed, I somehow justified that I didn’t have to shower every night.
I check FB before I get out of bed and before I go to sleep. Its like Im missing out if I dont.
I sleep with the TV on, I cant sleep without noise.
I have to have ALL the doors/cabinets/drawers in the entire house closed. It creeps me out if they are opened.
I have A LOT of OCD habits :-\
Oh yum! now i really really really want a veggie burger!!!
And its so funny you don’t want to shower after the gym, lol that is my favorite time to shower cause a nice cool shower feels sooooo good on my muscles:)
And i always wipe the eye boogers off my dog!
jen @ taste life says
I have to kiss my guy goodnight and before either of us leaves the house. I say a prayer to keep my cats safe during the day while they’re out and about. I must make my lunch and snacks for the next work day the night before.
Your posts are so fun!
I also hate showering! Yes! Actually I hate the whole getting ready process – blow drying, straightening, makeup blah, blah, blah. I just want to wake up & be perfectly ready!
I do lots of random & OCD things during the day:
-When I wake up I always check groupon. Sometimes I’ll even read the discussion part of the groupon even if I’m not interested in that groupon because I like to see what other people are discussing! Lol!
– I always drink coffee out of the same purple mug. I have 2 mugs but one has a tiny chip & I hate drinking out of it
– I drive my kids to school & in the car I always say “are we ready?” in a sing song voice & they reply ” yes, we are!” actually just my 4 year old says it , my 10 year old just looks at me like I’m nuts.
– I always check on my kids once or twice in the middle if the night to see if they’re breathing. My oldest son was born 15 weeks early & would randomally stop breathing when he was a baby. So the need to check on my kids at night has stayed with me.
Lots more, but I’m sure I’ve met my quota of comment space!
My boyfriend picks our doberman’s toenails every night in bed while we watch tv. I thought it was the strangest thing ever! I don’t think I will tell him he is not the only one because he might start to think he isn’t a such big weirdo after all!
Cait's a Runnerchick says
way to power through and stretch those jaw muscles to fit around that burger…i think that’s got to count as some kind of yoga, no? haha. oh man, i love reading about random habits other people do because it makes me feel like such a quirky weirdo myself! lol. wow, i’ve got quite a few myself, but i’ll stick with the sadie theme you’ve got and say that every night before i go to bed i give my cat a treat and say, “nite baily-boo!”
1.) I call my boyfriend and talk to him every night on the phone, and when we are together we always HAVE to kiss good night too. 2.) Check my 4 emails accounts (ridiculous! I need to cut one of them soon)
Elena @ GagaForGrapefruit says
i do the SAME thing with my boyf! there have been times when i fall asleep, and so has he, but i wake up and wake him up to give him a quick smooch or else i get stressed about it! i do the same thing before he leaves for work! i have to wake up and give him a hug and kiss or else it’s bad luck! so weird 🙂
Alyssa @ Life of bLyss says
because I’m probably secretly a guy in a girls body with how much I love baseball, quoting wedding crashers/anchorman/the hangover, and hitting people with “that’s what she said” comments so often….. my favorite part of this whole past was most def the (TWSS) note.
..and the fact that you abbreviated it.
Emily @ Glitz Glam Granola says
I usually wash my hair every other day (it’s just way too much work to do daily) but some days, I can put it up in a bun or a cute pony and make it work for the office. But I ALWAYS plan on getting up to do my hair and then I make that call in the morning… and that call is to go back to sleep 99% of the time haha. This isn’t a daily thing, but I also ALWAYS check my phone anytime I’m with someone who is talking about someone else that is in my phone. I just get so concerned that my phone might call them that I have to double check! I guess I also pick things up with my toes- hair ties, papers, clothes, you name it haha which is def weird.
I am also obsessed with fro yo and I used to do it for dinner way too often. Now I only make it a treat if I’ve already had dinner!
Jamie aka "Sometimes Healthy" Girl says
Weird things I do daily? hmmmm. I make a visit to the fruit guy around the corner (his apples are so cheap!) and buy 3 apples. And I usually eat all three every day! I also have different Pandora station for different times of the day:
Morning – Boys II Men station
Walk to Subway – Rascal Flatts
Work Day – Rascal Flatts, Taylor Swift
Subway Ride Home – IT ALL DEPENDS ON MY MOOD 🙂
Leah @ Why Deprive? says
I say almost the exact same thing to my dog whenever I leave the house too. Every single morning she walks me to the door at exactly 7:34am (shes freakish that way), and I tell her, “bye sweet girl, be good, have a good day, I love you. See you after work.” Im so glad Im not the only one that does that!
Those tomatoes look AMAZING!
One thing that’s odd that I do daily – and it drives my bf nuts (and not in the good way) – is play with his nipples while cuddling before going to sleep at night/before getting out of bed in the morning. I can’t help it – it’s like a weird comfort thing, like a kid that sucks their thumb.
Yah, I’m a weirdo.
Niki (Life's a Payne) says
Hmm, I had to think about this! But when I am sitting down studying or standing up at work for a long period of time I find myself doing variations of yoga stretches! It is really bad since people walking along the street can see me at work… oh well!
Lindsey @ Happy or Hungry says
I died laughing at TWSS! I still love a good that’s what she said 🙂
I also have to kiss my boyfriend goodnight before bed, and always say “good night, I love you”
And I also tell my cats to be good when I leave…even though all they do is lay around all day.
The first thing I do every morning when I get to work is check my horoscope… My Nana is a horoscope FREAK so I think this has been ingrained in me.
Ha! I love this post. I do a ton of weird things daily. I also pick the eye boogies out of my dog’s eyes…and I make the bed immediately after I get up.
I always tell Molly I love her and be good, and when I come home and she’s at the door, I say “How was YOUR day punkin?” and give her a kiss. Love my dog 🙂
I check FB every morning. I turn the bathroom fan on every night because I need white noise to sleep. I also eat the same breakfast almost every single morning.
I don’t know if it’s odd but I MUST check Groupon everyday! lol I’m addicted to all the good deals 😉 I also feel the same way about kissing my hubby goodnight, I feel like then we can go to bed even more peacefully and wake up in happiness 😀 Another one, I always tell my dog “Good night Muffins” when we’re going to sleep 🙂
This was SOOO funny!
Megan (Running Foodie) says
“I hate showering and am convinced I never would if I didn’t work out.”
I’m the exact same way! I don’t really mind SHOWERING, but I hate the moisturizing, hair drying, hair straightening, etc etc routine afterwards!
I never answer my house phone! I live with my mom and grandmother so the call is either going to be for one of them- my friends etc call my cell! Another weird thing: if i have a bad thought, i knock on wood and my head (DONT ASK)!
Alisa @ Running with Knives says
I have one mug that is my tea cup. When somebody uses it for something else, I have to wash it about a million times.
Also, my dog doesn’t get eve boogers, but she gets long strands of fur that stick out of her eyes. It’s weird, I’m trying to capture it on camera to show people. But I pick those out, many times a day.
Lisa @ I'm an Okie says
Here’s something weird: Sean has just a little bit of dandruff—and I pick at it everyday. Gross, I know. I’m like a freakin monkey.
I always have to kiss my hubby ‘bye in the morning. He’s usually sleeping. Then I kiss my dogs ‘bye’ in the same order every morning, oldes to youngest.
At work when I open my daily windows and the little tabs appear at the bottom of the screen they must appear in this order: work IM, work email, internet with work site up, Word, Excel and student system. If it’s out of order I get a little crazy.
Amber Faye @ One "Faye" At A Time says
I do so many weird things on a daily basis, it would take me ages to try to name them all! I am a weirdo, what can I say? 🙂 I think it’s more exciting that way!
Gina @ Running to the Kitchen says
Haha, these are great! My phrase to the dog when leaving the house is “bye bye Ginger, be a good girl, I’ll be back soon.” I swear she looks at me like she understands 😉
While I feel that this isn’t odd, I never do it in front of people: I get as close to the bathroom mirror as possible and do a full-face scan. There are parts of my face that I spend more time on than others: nostrels, crooks of my eyes, and the little mole that’s on the side of my nose.
I also always pack my lunch for the next day AS SOON AS I get home from work – before changing out of work clothes or washing my face or beginning dinner.
Haha, I do the same thing with my dog! The eye goo and I always say “I’ll see you later. Have a good day. I love you!” She’s usually under the bed going back to sleep already (weirdo), but it makes me feel better at least.
The weird things we all do are so funny! I click the Breast Cancer Site every day too (and the Animal Rescue one) and I do the same thing to my dog. I say, “Bye, Diesel. I love you. Be a good boy and don’t cause any trouble.” 🙂
Cindy @ The Flipping Couple says
We adopted a second English Springer last Fall. Twice the work, but twice the love! We don’t regret it, even though it’s been a lot of work. Hope you can find another puppy to love!!
Jessica Corbin says
You mentioned that you click the Breast Cancer Site everyday! I think that is great because I work for the company that produces this wonderful site! I help three Buyer’s here with their suppliers that produce all the items on the website! This company touches my heart in so many different ways and it was so cool to read from your blog that this is something you do everyday. 🙂 Thanks for contributing, makes our job that much better!
It is such a great site! So glad I can help promote it! 🙂
Amber K says
I don’t really know if there are any weird things I do daily. The very first thing I do in the day in the exact same thing I do before I go to bed though, brush my teeth!
I also drink lemon water every morning while my computer boots up and then I check my e-mail first thing. Nothing weird or out of the ordinary.
I CONSTANTLY wipe the boogers from my dogs’ eyes. They can’t do it themselves, so I feel like it is my duty to remove them, haha.
*clean out my cat’s eyes when I wake up too and when I get home from work.
*on weekdays, I eat Heart to Heart cereal with cinnamon sprinkled on top and milk (either cows or original sweetened almond). I just can’t get away from it! It is sooo good.
*floss my teeth every morning except on Saturdays, because I gotta give myself a break. I really look forward to Saturday mornings just because of this.
Allie @ Healthy Balance, Healthy Life says
I also hate taking showers! I plan my workouts specifically so I don’t need to take more than one…sometimes I go without one and use baby powder to keep my hair lookin’ fresh–don’t tell anyone.
Chelsea Brant says
I too, tell our dogs good bye! i’ll tell them i love them and we’ll be back shortly! haha 🙂
