I feel like I've been moaning too much lately about my little problems and my dislike of January. So, for a change of pace, and in an attempt to see the glass as (at least) half full, here's a list of things that make me happy at the moment. My more than 3BT, if you will...
~ Alan was able to stay home today to look after Dylan (who is sick again, poor little guy). We're lucky that he has the kind of job where he can do this on occasion. I think a "Daddy Day" of resting on the couch with some BBC Kids and a bit of Lego-building will be just what the doctor ordered.
~ Sweet little Sawyer at playschool this morning, planning to make a painting for Dylan, with glitter on it (was there ever any doubt?!) to make his big brother feel better.
~ Kelly sent me a nice long email this morning, along with a virtual pot of tea and plate of cookies. I miss Kelly and wish she still lived right around the corner so we could do the tea and cookie thing like we used to, but I'm grateful for the internet, writing paper and long-distance phone plans... all the things that keep us close despite the physical space between us.
~ My running clinic starts tonight. I've got the schedule for the next 14 weeks printed out and ready to post on my fridge. I'll be running 3x a week, and then racing in a 10K run at the end of April! Does this mean I can call myself a "runner" now? Awesome.
~ It's not raining today. There are patches of blue sky peeking through all over the place. Maybe I'll take a lunchtime walk around the block.
~ Cassie is sending me a parcel! Have I ever mentioned how much I love getting mail?
~ Fill Your Well's Kimbirdy gave me the Kreativ Blogger award! Yay!!! (more on this later...)
~ I'm grabbing a quick cup of tea with my sister after school. Guaranteed that we'll find something stupid to laugh our heads off about. And there will be biscotti. Yum.
~ LOST starts again, two weeks from tonight! Have I ever mentioned my deep and abiding love for LOST?
~ Recess. Even now, at 35 years old, I get to have recess every day! 15 minutes of peace and quiet, a cup of tea and a snack. How could you not love recess? There goes the bell... Must run.
But, just before I do... What's on your list of things that make you happy right at this very moment? Do tell.
