On our child free weekends when my son visits his dad, sometimes I’ll stay for a few overnights with T (my guy). We have two separate homes and don’t live together.
Here’s my confession..I’ve stifled it on the overnights so far, but I sing in the shower. Loud. And stuff like Kelly Clarkson, Pink (Rockstar is my new shower song), or Carrie Underwood.
He knows I’m a singer (avocation, not my job) but he hasn’t yet heard my shower concerts!
Fess up! What are yours?

I think my husband knows pretty much everything now. Even my gross habit of nail-biting that I tried to conceal for years! Ha! I like this question though. 🙂

I hope T gets used to the singing..He already is used to the fact that on a stressful day, I have a bubble bath. Period. It is my little ritual. Maybe one morning on one of our child free weekends, I will get up enough nerve to belt out a few Carrie Underwood songs in the shower!

I don’t think he knows how much time I spend reading messageboards, blogs, and facebook. I don’t really try to hide it, but I don’t volunteer it either. It’s kind of embarrassing – I have plenty to do to keep me busy without it!

fi doesn’t know how much time I waste online. I think he’d be dissapointed…he’s always getting on me to read more!
I’m a nail biter and fi hates it!
But here’s the weirdest thing that I do which fi just found out about: i shake the carton of milk before pouring a glass. I don’t know why, it just became a habit and now I can’t have a glass of milk unless it’s a little frothy!

Um, he doesn’t know I still hang out on Weddingbee even though we were married this past June 🙂 I feel kind of silly about it! He knows pretty much everything else though!

My ‘secret single behavior’ (SATC reference) is similar to Charlotte’s. I love to get in front of the magnifying mirror and do my grooming. Now that we’re married and living together, I have to make sure to close the bathroom door to avoid discovery.

@LatteLove: I have to shake it too!
I also tap my pop cans. FI does it too now when he hands a soda to me.
He still doesn’t know that I can’t stand closed shower curtains. Our shower has a glass door.

FI knows about mine, has for a long time, but it still amazes him every time he sees me do it.
I NEVER take the first item (or item at the front) off a shelf/rack at a store. For example, if I’m getting a Coke out of the fridge-thingy at a gas station, I reach behind the first one and grab the second. Same with cereal boxes at the grocery store. ANY boxes at the grocery store. Even clothes on a rack. I just feel like a lot of people may have touched the item closest to the front, and I would rather have an untouched one. LOL. This is soooooo OCD, and I know it. But very strange, because I don’t have any other OCD tendencies at all! Does anyone else do this??

@ lattelove, I always thought you were suppose to shake the milk… like how you shake juices haha
@honeybun… I totally do this too! my fiancee thinks it’s so funny, but i feel the same way about more people touching the first one, i learned this habit from my mom.

I never set my alarm for the normal alarm times.
Never: 6:00, 2:30, 5:45
Always: 6:02, 2:37, 5:49, etc.
I’m so wierd. I also do this with my car volume. It’s never on 20, always 21 or 17 or something like that. And the microwave…never heat anything for an even amount of time.
FI still doesn’t notice. I’m scared he’d send me to a shrink if he did. 🙂

@flipflop: I haven’t heard of that one before! But I wouldn’t send you to a shrink for it either
That does remind me of something though – whenever someone asks me what time it is, I tell them the exact time. Like right now I’d say 11:39, instead of rounding up and saying 20 ’til 12 or something. People seem to think that is the strangest thing…I think it’s very normal!

@ honeybun – I’m a little OCD about it. I’ve never met anyone else who does it…even the people at my job at teh psych hospital think it’s ridiculous.
I do that with time, too. If they ask what time it is, I figure I should be giving them the exact time. Duh!
