Shower in the dark… you know you want to.

Before I get to today’s post I wanted to share a little website that I LOVE.  Are you a big online shopper?  I AM!  A great way to earn some cashback while shopping online is to use  Most of the bigger online merchants accept it now and you can earn a certain percentage of your purchase back.  I am actually expecting a check for $65 on November 15.  All for shopping online for Christmas and other gifts.  I’ve been using it since 2008 and receive my checks quarterly.  I’ve always received them on time… and I’ve never had any issues as far as purchaing and item and receiving my money back.  Check it out today:!
Remember this crazy little poll I had in my side bar a little bit ago?  The reason I was asking was a) to see how many other crazies are out there and b) because if there were a few I would share this next bit of info.

First off, My name is Kim {hi Kim!} and I shower in the dark.  OK, so not always, but I wake up at 5:30 am and have 1.5 hours to get myself and three children ready to go to school, daycare and work.  So yes, sometimes I wake up and I don’t really want to be up, so I get into the shower with the lights off and just have some time to myself.  No bright lights, nothing.  Just dark.  But this can pose a problem.  You see, if my husband has moved my shampoo and conditioner bottles around it can be a real hassle.  Especially this time of year. I mean the sun doesn’t come up till 7:00, so there is no chance of any sunbeams shining through my window to shed some light on which bottle is which.

Enter glow-in-the-dark puff paint!  I put a dab of the paint on the cap of the conditioner and spread it around and I’m set.  And it still works even without light all night.  The first morning I gave it a try I got in and looked at where my bottles should be and didn’t see a thing and I was bummed because my idea didn’t work.  BUT THEN, I grabbed the bottles and looked closer and sure enough there was a faint glow… which may have been brighter but since I’m blind as a bat without my contacts, who knows!  So YAY! No more shampooing AFTER conditioning.  Oh and the mornings where my hubby showers first and when he showers with the light on {because I am here to tell you his secret: he showers in the dark a lot too!}, my conditioner top glows bright as can be. Even me, Mrs. Magoo, can see it from afar!
Oh, and just a side note – if you don’t have glow-in-the-dark puff paint, any puff paint will do.  All you have to do is feel the cap and you can tell there is paint on it!
Happy Showering!

    Too cute! And hilarious too…never tried it, but sounds relaxing and somehow isolating but in that no-child-around-to-peek-in-or-flush-the-tiolet-way…so yeah, the GOOD way!
    Would bee fun to freak out my hubs like this too!
