Thursday Thirteen

Little things that make me obscenely happy:

1) Finding out that the expensive summer camp Belly's going to will now offer FREE hot lunches and snacks to the little tykes.
2) Spell checking a document and finding out there were no mistakes. That gives me some perverse gratification.
3) Losing 2 lbs when I wasn't trying. *snort* Not like it happens, but it would make me happy.
4) Dressing my kids up. This week I have GB going to school as Chicken Little in a yellow hooded towel with an orange felt "comb" on the head.
5) When my cat is nice to me.
6) Getting a message from my grandmother that ISN'T an email forward.
7) Banana pudding (which keeps #3 from happening)
8) When my husband does really nice things for me without me asking.
9) Getting Big Bertha into a tight parking space without having to file an insurance claim afterwards.
10) Answering questions that impress my kids. "Wow, momma, you sure know a lot about hip hop!"
11) Meeting really awesome moms online, since I used to think only psycho stalkers did that kind of thing (I swear, the restraining order is almost expired...)
12) Taco Fresco
13) Reading books that are so fascinating that I can't put them down.

Good thing we know you're a woman and a mom or #11 would be really creepy.

You are lucky on #10. I have yet to find something that I can impress my boys with.

Monique said...

Aren't these lists great?!

I love your #10. BTW- Elliot loves banana pudding but I don't make it not sure how. I think it's banana pudding and vanilla wafers but it's not my thing.

Don't hate me Chica, but I used to lose weight without trying. A few pounds here and there. But not anymore!!! Wah!!

And as a disclaimer, even though I wasn't "trying" I was doing a lot of physical labor at work that I'm sure helped it along.

I want those days back sometimes.
