Little Things

Today I am thinking about how it is the little things that happen that can totally make life happy!

* My mom came over and cleaned out a month's worth of rotten food out of my fridge. She took all the shelves out and scrubbed them. The woman also swept up enough crumbs off my floor to feed a small country.  And she watched the kids while I took a bath- ALL. ALONE. Only a mom would come and do that kind of thing and not charge you!   What an awesome example of true love!

* I watched the movie UP for the first time today.  Reminded me about how life is not always about the results, but about the journey.  Plus- a good cathartic cry during a cartoon is always a happy experience.

* My brother brought me some fresh peaches in a brown paper bag.  It just screamed summer. YUM!

* More yumminess was had from the dozen Panera Bread Cinnamon Crunch Bagels we devoured today.  Those things are the bomb diggity.

* My dad stopped by today and he reeked of fish.  Made me have flashbacks to blissful childhood afternoons spent at my Granny's creek catching carp and hunting for turtles.

* It's Deadliest Catch and Glee rerun night!  Enough said.

* All the kids are recovering beautifully from all their various illnesses.  I am thinking about how I could make millions by opening up a pharmacy out of my kitchen.  I am also feeling intensely grateful that we have health insurance.

* I am also grateful that my sob story of our recent disasters worked and my doctor just called in an antibiotic for me and didn't make me go into the office.  Score!

* I haven't been to the grocery in about 2 1/2 weeks.  Which means that we are sans at least one ingredient for just about anything I could cook.  You know what that means... Pizza Night!  Yippee!

* I am keeping my fingers crossed that the little people stay healthy and keep recovering because I just made plans with my BFF to slip out for a couple of hours to catch a matinee of "Eclipse" on Thursday.  Yay for me time!  Go team Jacob!

* I gave up diet Pepsi's for a whole month.  But with everyone in the hospital, I totally picked it back up again.  I would normally beat myself up over this infraction.  But you know what- who cares!?!?  I am chalking that up to serious psychological progress. (Or maybe my give-a-damn is just busted?) Either way- it was good to let go of the guilt!

* But most importantly, I am sitting here in my kitchen typing this post at 4:30 in the afternoon.  Usually at this time of day, all hell breaks loose in this house.  Stay-at-homers- you know what I am talking about. Your kids go psycho that hour right before dinner.  But miraculously, all 3 are currently enamoured with Sponge Bob and I haven't heard anyone scream "Mooooooooooommmmm" for at least 30 minutes.  Hallelujah!  Thank you Sponge Bob for helping preserve my sanity.

My mom cleaning out my fridge.  It truly is a thing of beauty!
Isn't she cute?!?!
