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.........
Dogs and nature abhor a vacuum.
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.
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).
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!
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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
