I have found something I have in common with my sister

LOL - I recently found out that my sister likes to pull all of the M&M's out of the bag, group them by color. Once she has done this she will eat one from the group with the most M&M's until it is equal with the next most, then she will eat from those two (or more) groups equally until they are equal with the next group, and so on... until they are all gone. Yup, when I get a fist full of M&M's I do the same thing! :-) So now, when I have a bag of them, I just resist this temptation by not dumping them all out. I only pull one or two out at a time. :-) Sad, I know.

I also find that I compulsively do things until I feel that they are at an 'even' point. I like to do things that count until they are at intervals of 5/10, or what ever the next tier is... but I have been known to surpasas the standard until I get to an 'even' number.

My beloved told me that the state Autism 'guy' (that we meet with twice a month in a support group) told her that it was 'interesting' to see me interact with DS2. Now, I am not sure what he meant by that, but I know my beloved refers to DS2 as my twin. "I was just the host" is often her claim. LOL :-)

I have no idea where I am going with this post. It's been one of those days...

In recent weeks I have had several people from my unit approach me about staying in the Guard. To be honest, I am torn. I really like serving. I enjoy the work. But I don't like being away from home. Mostly it's because I see the affect it has on my beloved. Only a few more months to go...

Verse for today:
Luke 17:11-19, ESV
On the way to Jerusalem he was passing along between Samaria and Galilee. And as he entered a village, he was met by ten lepers, [6] who stood at a distance and lifted up their voices, saying, “Jesus, Master, have mercy on us.” When he saw them he said to them, “Go and show yourselves to the priests.” And as they went they were cleansed. Then one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, praising God with a loud voice; and he fell on his face at Jesus' feet, giving him thanks. Now he was a Samaritan. Then Jesus answered, “Were not ten cleansed? Where are the nine? Was no one found to return and give praise to God except this foreigner?” And he said to him, “Rise and go your way; your faith has made you well.” [7]

I group mine and eat the least favorite colors first, leaving the best until last.

I do the same with Skittles as well.

What kind of a weirdo would eat them indiscriminately?!

The Guard ... Hmm. Yeah, a great place to be a light, but a real whippin' to be away from home so much.

Do you think most people have at least some of these tendencies? All of my life I've preferred even numbers to odd, etc.

LOL - I dunno, some people just resist those temptations better than others. :-)
