when all you want to do is take a shower, #movingday

All you want to do is take a shower.

That's it.

You have two days' worth of sweat and grime all over you, and the only time you're not sweating is in the air-conditioned car.

Your ankles feel like they're about to break because all you've done all day is carry things and go up stairs and stand around wondering where to even start.

All you want to do is take a shower.

The baby is finally down for the count, and the shower is yours.

But then you have to dig through one of the many "miscellaneous" boxes to find your face wash, body soap, shampoo, and razor.

Then you have to put up the shower curtain, because you didn't do that earlier.

All you want to do is take a shower.

You finally turn on the water and set it to a tepid temperature, because it's just been so awfully hot today.

You step in that shower and watch the dirt wash off your feet.

You've reached Nirvana.

I always think of "opposition in all things" when I have moments like this.
