It's the Little Things

Yesterday I got my office in order, today I got my home in order. Unpacked, cleaned, got groceries, all that good stuff. I am generally not too stuck on any habits or routines, I'm quite flexible. But I did realize today that there are some little things I really did miss, and appreciate having back now:

My favorite Olay lotion for my face at night. Sadly, over 3 oz. sized jar.

Having a shower which is above my head, not requiring me to scrunch down to Asian-person size or cheap-hostel shower height.

My bedtime snack. And afternoon snack. And studying pick-me-up. Oh, come on, chocolate is Nature's cure-all.... :)

And in the spirit of the little things, when I took my shower today I did I very empowering thing. I tossed out my bottle of body wash. I was only 1/4 of the way through the bottle, but I hated the scent. I was only using that soap because I paid good money for it - all of $4, I think. But life is too short to be cringing when you reach for the soap...

Now I get to buy myself some much better-smelling body wash. I might spend all of $10 this time - look out!


  1. I traveled a lot last year for interviews, etc. and didn't want to check bags so I invested in some smaller containers to put my regular products in for travel (for products that don't make travel-size). I definitely think it was worth it to have my favorite products with me.

  2. Haha, my husband just got back from a trip to an Asian country a few days ago, and spent about 20 minutes in the shower in our house. Apparently, he had to take all of his Asian showers on his knees. Ouch.

  3. what?!?! you're not "Asian-sized"?
