As a change of pace....here are a few things that made me happy this week. In the grand scheme of things, none of these matter. But when you just have those little moments of *smile*, it really can turn your world around, even if it is just for a second.
We put the snow shovels away, and although our yard is a big squishy mess....it is clear of snow. The crocuses are in full bloom....and my perennials are coming back!!!
Words with Friends!!
G-man and I almost always have a game going. Over time, he has gotten much better, so alot of our games come down to the wire. However, I had a terrific game Wednesday night!!! I had a 126 point word, followed by a 93 point word! End score was 614 (shattering my previous high score of 516) to 216!!! G-man wasn't even bummed...he just was excited for me that I got over 600!
This wasn't THE one I saw....but it is the same color (blue with that lovely faux wood panel! Sexy! NOT!!!!!! ) The reason I smiled....the one I saw had "antique car" plates. I think a car has to be 40 years old to qualify for those plates. I smiled for 2 reasons: 1) They are just so ugly, I have no idea why someone really wants one....but having a 40 year old car is still something to celebrate, and 2) It brings me back to when I was pregnant with Sassy and Bossy. I wanted them to have 2 middle names (and the ones I wanted were....well....an acquired taste.....) and G-man didn't want it. He countered with "if I can have a Grand Wagoneer, then you can have 2 middle names." Needless to say....we do not have have a Grand Wagoneer.....and my children each have one middle name (but they are still unique names, and I love them).
We have a new employee (per diem, so she won't be in the office much) and on Monday she had to drop something off, and had her 2 kids in tow. Beautiful children....lots of blonde hair! Her older daughter is 3, and just a cutie patootie. She really wanted to meet my boss's dog (English Bulldog), who is very very friendly, albeit a little excited when children come into the office. He stood by the gate waiting to get some attention, and this little girl all of a sudden got a little nervous. It was so darn cute to see her squatting, with her hands on her face, trying to decide if she was going to get any closer. She decided that maybe NEXT time she comes to the office, she will pet him. She did wave bye to the dog though. :)
Have a great weekend!!!!!
