Do you have a bad habit you need to change?

Since I was 19, I have worn expensive sunglasses. In my defense, I need them for my funky MS eyes. They have to be polarized. Now, I used to always clip them on my shirt -- and consequently, they were always scratched when they fell off my person. Now, I wear them on my head. So they're safe.

But I have a new bad habit. I shove my keys in my back pocket. Today, I went walking in the hills, and when I came back there was a note on my car. It said, "Your keys are at the map station!" Sure enough, I walked over to the map station and there were my keys. Isn't that so cool that someone did that?? So later, I came home, did the same thing with my keys and they fell into the toilet.

So clearly, I need to get a hook or a new system for my keys. What habit have you had to adjust? How'd you do it?

I had to learn to stop biting my fingernails down to the quick. I learned by spending grunches of money on artificial nails and the "perfect" manicure. With all the money I spent, no way was I going to mess up my nails by sticking them in my mouth! By the time the nails had to come off because of an impending surgery, I had stopped the well in fact that I have a hard time making myself cut my natural nails when they get too long!!

I am still working on changing my bad habits, but I have heard if you do something for 30 days (or 30times, I can't remember), it will become a habit.

However, I got a great laugh out of your keys and where they finally ended up. Good thing they didn't go farther down the toilet!

Wow, you got lucky that they had your name on them!

I used to bite my nails. That was REALLY a hard habit to break.

I love the manicure idea! I've tried different purses and clips to manage the keys, but somehow they always end up where they shouldn't. I was lucky I had a Buick and that no one else in California seems to. It was a Christian mom who did it because the note was written in crayon on a church bulletin, isn't that cute?
