I'm sorry!

I think I may have discovered a new form of Tourette's Syndrome where instead of shouting out inappropriate obscenities I feel a compulsive need to say the words "I'm sorry". Seriously, y'all. My post from yesterday got me to thinking... So far today I have apologized for the following things:

To TheBoy for brushing moving the covers when I got out of bed (I'm pretty sure he wasn't awake when this happened)

To TheCat for shutting the door to the bathroom before he could sneak in

To TheBoy for jumping when he snuck up on my while I was blow drying my hair (clearly this was my fault!)

To TheBoy for trying to leave the kitchen while he was trying to enter it (yes - our kitchen is THAT SMALL)

To the woman I accidentally cut off while trying to get over to the carpool lane

To the man I purposely cut off while trying to exit the freeway

To TheBoy because he didn't think my joke was funny (I do have an often dry sense of humor)

To TheBoss for being late (to which he replied, "Exactly how LATE we're you here last night? I thought we already had this conversation." I love him.)

To the receptionist (pardon, Director of First Impressions) for filling up my water bottle at the cooler while he was attempting to get by to unlock the supply room door

To someone at work for leaving two messages on their voice mail

To the waitress for picking up my glass just as she was reaching to refill it

To my boss for going to lunch at all

To a woman at the coffee shop for being in her way when she turned around from the register

That's a lot of apologizing for one day... And the day isn't over yet! Does anyone else do this? Is this a symptom of the OCD which we already know I have? Yes, I realize it's self-diagnosed. But y'all! It's so, so true! I was up this morning at 4:00 am cleaning the floor in the bathroom! Cause it was dirty. I'm just saying...

LOL - well I was counting because I was curious to see how many times I actually did it!

Okay, I thought I was bad and had a need to please. You're just out of control with it. LOL.

I do the same thing, I say I am sorry 100 times a day!
