So I have this really weird thing about me, call it a pet peeve I guess, but I have serious issues with my toothbrushes, my towels, and my blankets. I love my husband very much, but he, for the life of him, hasn't figured this out about me in our almost 3 years of marriage. I just barely bought Cameron and I new toothbrushes, his is the blue one (for boys) and mine is the purple one (for girls). The other day I grabbed my toothbrush, started brushing my teeth and Cameron looks at me and says "isn't that my toothbrush?" I said, "no, honey, yours is the blue one". His reply, "oh, I've been using that one for about a week now, oops". My reply... throw up noises. Yes, we kiss and share the same saliva, but plaque is not the same thing. Sorry honey. Now the towel issue is something that has been going on for 3 years now and probably will continue the rest of our lives. My towel is my towel, and no one else's. I know, I know, you use them when you're clean, but I like to know that it's just being used on my body for some reason. Cameron goes through towels like I go through toothbrushes :) His towel is my towel, my towel is his towel, a towel's a towel to him. So you can imagine me going to dry myself off to an already wet towel almost everyday. Once again, I love my husband, but the other day I had just given him a lecture about it, then watched him get out of the shower, hesitate and point back and forth at the towels... 'brown towel, green towel, brown towel, green towel...?' I watched for a second to see if he could get it and finally said "green towel!" Maybe I should start color coordinating and buy Cameron everything in all the same color! I just thought of that just now, I'm a genius. Now we won't get into the blanket thing too much, in 3 years Cameron and I have shared blankets on our bed maybe 5 times. Luckily he has issues with it also! I just don't share blankets. I like perfectly clean blankets used by only me. Just know that if you ever stay at my house there will always be clean sheets and clean blankets... and they'll be washed immediately after you leave :) Maybe I am a little bit crazy, I don't know, but hopefully one day I'll get over it!
