It’s funny what mundane things we get excited about and which ones are just…mundane. We got two big boxes from Amazon the other day, both from ourselves, and neither of us could remember what we ordered. Starting mood: excited. Yay forgotten packages!
John opened the first one: a silverware drawer organizer and a salad spinner. Mood: still excited. Our silverware has been sliding around and getting all messed up in a drawer too small for the organizer we had, and we’re both tired of washing lettuce piece by piece.
John opened the second one: a little storage ottoman and rocking chair cushions. My mood: excited. We don’t have the rocking chair yet, but when it gets here (Monday?), I’ll have cushions to sit on and an ottoman to put my feet on. John’s mood: meh. I guess he’s too tough for cushions.
So for future reference, John’s happy about kitchen organization and super-bored by cushions. Noted.
