Is there anything you do that you know you probably shouldn't? I'm not talking blatantly obvious law-breaking things, just things you know you probably shouldn't do.

When we're driving by people's houses and I see their TV on through their windows, I look in as we pass to try to figure out what show they're watching. So anyone who lives in my neck of the woods may want to close their curtains after dark.

NEXT!

Oh, ok--I was ready with some law-breaking ones! LOL

My biggest struggle is with sugar---my doctor has me strictly no gluten, sugar, alcohol or caffeine. YEAH RIGHT! So I drink decaf coffee and sneak chocolate when nobody's looking. *sigh* I suppose that's cut down on them both at least, but I told my DH that when I die, I want to be buried in a coffin of SOLID CHOCOLATE.

Lined with mocha.

Whipped cream on top.



With sprinkles.

Ok, I'll stop....


*whimper*

I do the same thing about looking in! However, my motivation is that I'm very interested in how people have decorated their houses!

However, I also have to confess that I don't really feel badly about doing this either.

Oh, I wouldn't feel bad about peeking... anyone who lives in a town and keeps their curtains open WANTS you to look! LOL

'Just my guess anyhow, so I always oblige them.

I dream too much (and really shouldnt) about living out in Oklahoma, Wisconsin or S Dakota somewhere. Reality is, if it happens in this lifetime, it would probably have to take something superior to my music and the band reuniting after 30 years, to get me to go there any sooner. And it better be worth leaving all of this...unless the whole band chooses to move too.

I do the same thing. I'm a walker and if I happen to be walking as it gets dark, I peek inside as I walk by. But with that said, 99.9% of the places I've "looked in" make me twitch! Out right squaller, some of them! Makes me wanna buy them curtains so I don't have to see the filth.

And I know I'm obsessively clean, but still....

Most places I peek into seem almost immaculate. I have six kids, so immaculate is something ONLY see when I'm peeking in someone else's house.

LOL.. and if you get something "superior" to your music here in Phoenix, and the band decides to move here?

There's more stuff that I should be doing, but I'm not, than stuff I'm doing, and shouldn't be.
