How I Know I'm Becoming a Real Adult....

I made a splurge purchase today. The item in particular was something I've had my eye on for a long while now. Each time I pass by it in the store I go through the same internal conversation:

"Do you really need that?"
"But you know you can make due without it, right?"
"Well, of course I can 'make due', but that's not the point here. The point is practicality."
"How practical can it be for that price?"
"'re right. I'll wait for it to go on sale."

So I waited. and waited. and waited. Then, FINALLY, my beloved neighborhood Target came through for me! I saw that it was on sale, and this time around I told that little voice in my head to shove it because I was FINALLY going to buy this......

All Glory to the Swiffer WetJet!

(No, this is not a paid endorsement for the Swiffer WetJet. I wish it was, but I don't think they want a salesperson who's so creepily obsessed with their products....)

I kept telling myself that I could make due with a bucket and rag, just like my momma taught me, but no. I can't. I like cleaning, and when I go on cleaning binges randomly throughout the week, I daresay that I LOVE cleaning. So yes- I am going to buy the WJ and say 'to hell with it' regarding the bucket and rag. 

And this post- ladies and gentlemen, is how I know I'm slowly losing the battle with adulthood. I am downright giddy about buying a cleaning product. Using said cleaning product will be the highlight of my Wednesday. Please direct your pity accordingly...
