What a beautiful post. I actually like the every day task of weeding the way some people like to pop bubble wrap. I feel the compulsive need to pull them and feel a little satisfied rush when I do. Now if only I felt the same way about my doing my laundry . . .


I love that sentiment... I am definitely going to have to save that excerpt to share with my boyfriend later. A wonderful thing to keep in mind.
