It's December [Dec. 3rd, 2007|09:26 pm]

How did that happen? Wasn't it just November like, three days ago?

The month got off to a good start, though, because we finally replaced the kitchen trash can. The Boy broke the old trash can climbing on it. It's been broken for quite a while, but I hadn't replaced it because I wasn't sure if I wanted to get the same style. I liked it, but it broke. And even though I liked it, it was a bit small, and maybe a larger size would be better, but the old one fit really well next to the counter, but maybe a different shape would look better, but...

See? This is me, trying to make a decision. For over a month. 

Which is better than the decision to get the original trash can, which took six years. Yes, for six years, we didn't have a kitchen trash can - we just kept a trash bag lying around. Honestly, we are so uncivilized it's a wonder God hasn't issued a recall on our opposable thumbs.

This time, the decision only took six weeks, instead of six years. In the end, I got a different trash can, similar, but larger, and a slightly different shape, and it took me all of three seconds to decide I hated it, and what I really wanted was the same one I already had. Except, not broken. So, in the real end, I ended up with what I already had, only even more sure that it's what I wanted to have.

The grass is not always greener, even when it's a bigger trash can.

Yep. That sounds like me, too. Well, except I still be using the garbage bag wondering for Mr Right Trash Can to magically arrive on my doorstep.

Oh, I have two. One in my bathroom and one in the garage so the dog doesn't chew icky unmnentionablables in the living room/on the lawn.

We must be living parallel lives. Our trash can broke at least 6 months ago, too. We finally saw a big square one at costco for really inexpensive, so we got it. And the lid pops up and hits the kitchen table. It's too big. But at least the lid pops up when you step on the foot pedal, so I'm not going to whine about it. Anymore.

Yeah, this one the lid hits the counter overhang, but I can deal. Like you said, at least it opens.

Whenever I find something I like, I need to remind myself I need 3-5 of them. I grow very attached to styles of things...

It's not December. I live in denial. No one is aging and the months aren't moving along. Summer just ended, it can't possibly be the countdown to Christmas and the advent calendar is NOT missing 4 candies already.

Not not not. :)

ROFL! I thought I was the only one who can be so indecisive on something like a garbage can. And the story about the garbage bag serving the purpose for 6 years before the trash can, I can so relate to that! My kitchen garbage can is too small because I've been borrowing it from our bathroom for ... I don't know how long. You wouldn't believe how long I will stand and study the garbage cans at Target and still haven't just grabbed one already. I admire you for blogging about this, now I can come out of the closet about it, too. I feel inspired to buy one now. ;-D
