good thoughts for a change.


I've been a tad bit bummed the past week. So, to help bring some cheer back into my soul...I'm making a list. I like it when other people do it, so I'm going to do it.


10 things, this weekend, that made me smile.

1. On friday when my husband said, "I want to take you on a date. I'll go anywhere with you. Shopping or some kind of store...Whatever you want." "what?" "I want to go somewhere with you that I don't like, so it's all for you."
(Unfortunately for me, I had no desire to go shopping anywhere. But we did do chores together and it's always easier and fun when there's someone else to share in the agony.)

2. When my sarcastic comments to my friends don't get destroyed by the un-emotional internet...Meaning, I love that my friends get me.

3. Knowing my sister-in-law will be here for a visit on Thursday and our plans include Mojitos ... and so far, that's all.

4. my husband's writing more

5. a clean house

6. tea pots and loose leaf tea

7. bike rides

8. the breeze

9. adorable old men

10. cuddles


This took me a surprisingly long time to compile, and the weekend's only half over and therefore shouldn't be hard to recall. I think it's mostly a testament to the sad state I've been in lately. I'm working on a more cheerful approach to tomorrow.

I hope Monday the 13th brings a brighter day.

1 - It is one day closer to the Scrivners coming down and visiting.

2 - Eric and Sarah have been married one month.

3 - I am thinking of you and hope to talk soon.

Aw, all of those sound so nice! Especially the one of you and Andy doing chores together :)
Maybe I should do this list too, since I have been in a kinda sad state too.
I fly back in one week. :)

Bleah! Your list is too cutesy. I would take off the breeze and include 8. Finally popping that zit inside my nose which grew when I tweezed a hair out and it got infected.

Now that's a real pleasure. Hope this week went better. Ciao!
