pathetic highs

I guess it doesn't matter if you're job is primarily in the home or corporate or in school. We all have little things that give us a rather pathetic high. Just a moment ago, I thought, Sweet! I'm going to treat myself to a load of sheets and towels! A whole load of laundry, but MUCH less to fold.

seriously. super and lame at the same time.

How about you? What lame thing gives you a minor thrill??

Hmm, getting the mail is what comes to mind right now.
I'm a loser.

Clean bath mat. There's nothing like it.

It doesn't matter how messy the rest of my house is, if my bed gets made I feel like everything is in its place.

SIMPLY cleaning the house from stem to stern. There were years, I'd have to feel accomplished if I cleaned one toilet. Having the time and energy to do that is so very satisfying!!!

Aaaaaaahhhh. Any load of laundry with Snuggle gives me a high.

Perfectly vaccumed carpet with all those lovely lines! I'm getting so excited just thinking about it that I might go vaccume right now!

Mandy said...

I totally agree about the bath mat! And just like you- linens are so much easier than a load full of clothes.

I also love clean mopped floors! I mopped yesterday and it lasted a whole hour until a glad of chocolate milk and a broken candy thermometer ruined everything...

hmmm... i like using up ingredients in the house and throwing away/recycling the packaging. completion gives me a pathetic high.

freshly washed rugs. organizing the kids clothing drawers. mopping under the couches.

I like the vacuum lines too. Also, a clean car rips me up -- I spend a fair amount of time in it!

a clean kitchen. The rest of my life can be a mess, but as long as the kitchen's clean...

when my husband declutters

finding great deals at the grocery store, plus a great coupon that helps even more

I love when it's time to clean out the dishwasher and there isn't a stack of dirty dishes waiting to go back in it right away. Great post! I laughed. I certainly think the same way about laundry, because it's one more load checked of my list but half the work of a regular load of clothing to fold.
