Things I Love Thursday

Is it Thursday already?

If you had asked me what blessings I had to count on Tuesday, I would have been wailing in tears, wetly moaning about how unfair life is. It’s been one of those weeks where everything goes wrong, from job issues to money matters to health woes to ants in the house. Thankfully, after a wine-induced sleep, a bit of good news, and some talks with important folks (from calming loved ones to Powers That Be), I’m stressing a little less, and definitely dealing with it better. It just goes to show the difference a single day can make.

Here are some of the things I’m loving this week…

banks that will work with you      friends who help in a pinch      people who love you and don’t judge you       having a home; I feel so badly for those who don’t because of the floods and tornadoes over the past two weeks       still having resources and work, even with him laid off and my workload reduced       uber-cute kid movies as background noise; this week it’s Megamind and How to Train Your Dragon      uplifting music      Wood Sprite demanding to watch Glee–and dancing along while Finn sang “I’ve Gotta Be Me”      More television mirth in Modern Family      root beer       doodling notes to my husband while our daughter is in taekwondo class       debating Hellboy nuances with said husband      planning free summer activities and playdates       daydreaming about Sam Winchester      following all of the exciting Hunger Games movie news like an eager teenager       seeing Wood Sprite’s face light up when I suggested she make a tent under the kitchen table today       safely surviving tornadoes (while stranded at the store!)       receiving compliments on my work      exchanging stupid jokes with my husband (and even zanier ones with my kid)       free wine       singing karaoke with my family       fairytale books for teens and grown-ups       cold, cold, cold water kept in the fridge       disappearing pain       life-sized mazes at the library       bunny stories, egg hunts, and bird house building over the weekend       cleared deposits!       being told that everything will be okay, then believing it
