things that make me happy

  • Spring arrived before my allergies this year.

  • Yesterday Bug was outside for three hours at the playground across the street. Donnie and I tag-teamed but Bug went strong the entire time building a city in the sandbox, watching for pirates from the top of the slide, swinging, kicking the soccer ball, contemplating the story of "The Tortoise and the Hare" and keeping an eye out for "ghostessess." Best part of all was when he came to us an hour before his regular bedtime announcing he was tired from all his work and should go to sleep.

  • "Madness" seems the perfect word to describe this year's NCAA tournament. I haven't been able to watch much of it but what I have seen has been fun even if I have NO teams in the final four.

  • I've actually made time for reading...I feel like I've been reunited with a long lost friend.

  • In one week our convention will be OVER.


  1. A child that says he wants to go to sleep? It doesn't get any better than that! Right now I would settle for some spring weather, however. :)

  2. He wanted to go to sleep?? THAT is awesome!

  3. Wow! He WANTED to go to sleep? amazing...

  4. Reading and spring - two of my favorite things.

  5. I have neglected my reading lately as well. I've just rekindled our relationship and it seems to be going well so far.

    My allergies have been a nightmare!!!
