high or low moment?
 
Tonight I was standing over the stove, eating slightly burnt roasted orange peppers and french bread, while listening to a podcast featuring Tim Meadows (love) and Rhett Miller (still making up my mind).

I was very happy, but not everyone would have been. I call it a "high" moment, though for some, it would have been a "low" moment, especially on Easter.

Describe a high/low moment of your own.........

For this weekend -
high moments - getting my easter basket from the oddparents, my dad's artichokes and easter bread, my sister's passover brisket, coming home to find Big Head Todd sitting on the patio waiting for me.
low moments - migraine, stepping on the scale, having too many people asking for favors, help, taking up my time.

Peppers make me burp so badly...it would have been a really LOW moment for me.

And why are you eating over the stove, instead of the sink?

My high moment of the weekend: Discovering Walking Dead, and getting to watch 3 seasons of it all in one weekend, all my kids home for the holiday, lots of great food.

Low: I was sick with a terrible sinus infection, thought I was going to die. Obviously I didn't, so that's another high moment I suppose.

I've had low moments where I ate rice, hot sauce and parmesan cheese for dinner..and then maybe leftover dessert. Because I was too lazy to even order in. Oh and then to top it off, Coke, and I rarely drink soda.

I can't think of any highs recently :(. Although I'm on a real high right now, about to leave work early to go to the home opener baseball game, super excited!

I don't mean good or bad moments ---- I meant moments that you personally think are high or low, although you realize that some people would label things very differently.

I don't know why I eat over the stove. I'm not a great dish do-er, so usually that would explain it (as in dirty dishes left in the sink), but this time things were clean. Maybe I just like the heat, and I don't have to carry the hot pan as far if I eat over the stove? I never thought about it before.

I didn't get the permanent job I applied for where I'm temping. Part of me is crushed (what? how could they not like/want me????). Part of me is happy, it's a long drive, I'm still not over the mental abuse of my last job (seriously, I have heart palpatations when I get up to go the restroom and there isn't anyone to tell where I'm going. Yes at my last job I had to ask permission to use the restroom).

So it's high and low, crushed yet relieved?

Today I woke up at ten, ate breakfast, then went to sleep again and then woke up at three, when I had a candy bar and am currently watching gossip girl. I'm sure MANY people would consider that a low moment, but, I don't know, I think it's a high. I know how to properly relax!

claudine19 04-01-2013 07:16 PM

What kind of candy bar, and why do so many people like gossip girl?

Just curious (in a neutral way).

jeepcurlygurl 04-01-2013 07:19 PM

Hmm. Well, in the summer I come home for lunch and sit on the front porch and watch the world go by for an hour. I'm sure others would find that so boring and a low moment, but I love it.

CurlyEyes 04-01-2013 07:28 PM

Hershey's, cookies and cream!! the best flavor in the world, from a purely objective standpoint.

I couldn't tell you why I like gossip girl - it's not that well-written or realistic. it's just a very dramatic show with a lot of pretty people and pretty clothes and some snappy one liners. it's very ridiculous, and for some reason really addictive.

I spent Easter on my couch, alone (except for Finlay), watching season 3 of Downton. I loved every minute of it, but I know others would consider it a horrible lonely day

High: I was able to go see a disability lawyer.

Low: I had to go see a disability lawyer.

My high moments tend to be similar to what claudine, jeep, and PerriP described. Little things are very pleasing/satisfying to me. Sometimes during the course of a day, I just find a perfect moment in time. That's a high for me; probably wouldn't be for others.

Curlyminx 04-01-2013 10:39 PM

Low point - having an emotional connection.

B-wavy 04-02-2013 05:53 AM

^ minxy, some day soon that will be a high for you.

That sounds like perfection to me. I love to sit outside and listen to birds, and furry creatures in the woods. I will do it for hours, with camera in hand, and take pictures of any animal I see. I don't have to talk to anyone, or listen to peoples BS. I just stop and enjoy the little things.


Yesterdays high: After being productive, and running errands. I sat in the sunshine, cleared my mind, and relaxed. It was wonderful.

Low: When the sun went down I came back inside and couldn't stop thinking about everything I needed to do today.

You are my kind of gal, PerriP.:wave:

My high moment right now is being alone in the office drinking a hot cup of hazelnut coffee with a little creamer. aaaaaaaaah........

My low moment will be in about 30 minutes when the coffee kicks in. I can't drink coffee. I'm going to bloat up, hurt, and may have diarrhea. :help:

My most drastic high/low moment was 6 years ago when K was released after 2 weeks of treatment from the children's hospital having survived RSV as a premature infant and we come home to discover my dog Bear died that day. He was still warm. My entire extended family was so ecstatic K was okay and so was I, but my heart was broken and I cried for days and days and days.

I cry even now, just typing this. :crybaby:
