Imaginary rules

I'm all about control. I'm one of those folks who's likely to say "No, I'll just do it, you won't do it right" (unless it involves power tools, then the hubby can do as he sees fit!).

So I make up imaginary rules for myself. Imaginary, because there's no one who really cares about whether or not I follow them, and because I rarely write them down. The new rule I've come up with is:

No shopping at Joann's unless I've ridden my bike there, or if Dianna's along.

Now, no one's going to hold me to this but me, of course, because who cares how (or if!) I get to Joann's? I guess it makes me feel like I'm in control of something that briefly seemed a little out of control...like my remnant buying habit.

We'll see how it goes. 

Do you do this, readers? Make silly rules for yourself, I mean??


  1. I do, and then I break them and feel guilty, and then make more, and so on and so on. It's a vicious cycle.

  2. Yep, totally. I'm a control freak. It makes me develop a twitch to see my husband doing something I know can be done better.
