Okay. I have so many “little things” posts backed up. The posts all contain information about items or products I love, or easier ingredients in cooking. Yada. Yada. And I will get back to those next week with a review on one of my favorite products. But this week, I bypassed all of those topics to discuss something kind of important.
You see, it has been a hot commodity at our house in the last two weeks.
The story goes: Two weeks ago we ran out of soap.
There was no soap to be found.
There was none on the ground.
None hiding in a drawer.
Or on the floor.
We checked under the sink.
It was the battle of the stink.
And you would think that I would remember to buy some. But I kept forgetting. At first I told the kids to use shampoo. But then I remembered how expensive my shampoo is. I scrounged up a cheap bottle of body wash that was laying around from who knows when or where or why. And I ignored the problem.
Two weeks passed. On a whim, I grabbed two bars of soap at the store. I brought them home and proudly presented them to my husband. He was so excited. I was the best wife ever (him forgetting that I was the one who let us run out of the stuff in the first place).
I am telling you, this week, the shower is amazing. What a luxury this “soap thing” is. You seriously must try it!
It’s the little things: An everyday object not being taken for granted. It truly became the best “little thing” in life.
So, have you ever run out of an everyday product? Did it feel like a luxury once you had it again?
