My smile:

Some days you really have to reach to find that smile.  Oh, here's one:  I'm pretty sure I have a cold, and not the flu.  :)

And here's another:  it can ALWAYS be worse.

Only elephants have 22-month-long pregnancies.

I can has perzpective. *g*


I mostly post fannish things in this journal, but I think it's easy to forget that there is a real person behind the fic and the Bones commentary. Same goes for other people, of course. So I'd like to take a minute to acknowledge our humanity.

If you'd like to do so, please tell me something that made you smile this week, no matter how small. Could be the snuggle your dog gave you on Monday, the song you discovered on Tuesday, or the way your significant other smiled at you today. I've been posting these since last December. If you feel up to it, please respond—here, in your own journal, or elsewhere. Feel free to post more than one thing and/or respond to other comments.

Why am I doing this? Because I think it is far too easy to get caught up in the stresses, big and small, that we all experience. Being able to focus on one positive thing, however small, can give one a valuable sense of perspective.

Why Wednesday? I figure a little mid-week cheer can't hurt. :)

Three fat, lazy, shiny cats who each chirp or purr or talk to me every time I walk into the room where they are stretched out or curled up like lumps on my bed. Never fails to make me smile and talk back to them when only one of them actually speak English. ;)

Seems we're in the same place today - it could always be worse...

Hope you'll feel better soon :)

I'm smiling about the fact that if minor things like work contacts being idiots get to me then I'm in a good place - that is not really what matters.

Ha! I know that one, let me sing along....

While I want all my friends to be happy and smiling your comment makes me feel so much better :) Thank you TT!

Hee :) A problem shared, and all that *g*

-I finally called my hair stylist to get my hair cut!! I've been wanting to do it since December (it actually covers all my back and I'm sick of it), I think, but real-life's a bitch and you never can do what you want. So next Saturday... bye-bye long hair.

-LOL with my niece counting from 1 to 10 in Spanish and Basque without mistakes.

I hope your week goes very, very well. *hugs*

ETA: Totally random thing. A few days ago I saw a T-Shirt with the quote: "When life gives you lemons, just order tequila and salt". *g* It made me think of this post.

I gotted smiles coming outta my ears today...

1. Everyone I know on LJ for being SO fabulous when I was feeling shitty yesterday. I ♥ my online friends!
2. New windows and front door just ordered - unreasonably exciting *g*
3. My kids for being so amazing and going back to school after their half term break without a murmur of disagreement. Esp Joe, all 3 1/2 yrs of him *squeezes J*
4. You! Having you back about the place more has been fab!
5. This vid by leviathan101 which I CANNOT stop watching at least once a day. It does my heart good to know I am not the only BB obsessed crazy around here (like I didn't know that already) ;)

*hugs*

Your kids are so much more mature than I am. They'd probably done a far better job dealing with silly journalists than I did after my long weekend away ;)

Yeah they would probably have told them they were stinky and smeared chocolate on their clothes - could've worked!

I rest my case... Although I wouldn't waste any chocolate on the press, not even for smearing ;)

Surely smear campaigns are the press' job anyway? ;) *groans*

I walked a lot today and I'm so tired now...but it felt sooo good! And I also found out that S3 DVD Box Set of Bones is finally here in stores right now! I went to the nearest to my home and couldn't helped but adored the cute little orang-y box...I even took a picture of it because I'm crazy like that and it was way too much awesomeness! Someday ALL the original season will be mine! Mwahahaha.

My smile: my house is reasonably clean (cause I thought company was comin', even though they ended up not...). gives one a small sense of accomplishment... and I'll really be smiling if DH notices that said house is cleaner when he gets home (not holding my breath on that one!).

SOOOOOO incredibly glad you do not have a 22 month gestational period... ZOMG! *crosses fingers that your bun is done bakin' soon* :)

That icon always makes me smile :)

BENEDRYL! Because yesterday my four year old was one walking hive due to a before unrealized penicillin allergy, and today he's just kinda blotchy and not nearly as itchy!

- My mom and sister are on their way to my house, be here tomorrow sometime
- And I just had an amazing ice cream :)

Also my cousin just had her baby 2 days ago, good luck with your little one, babies do things in their own time of course


opening night for my show tomorrow!!!! and a new moleskine diary. yay.

i hope your cold goes away!!! *wields excalibur in an attempt to vanquish cold with bones related things*

*I subbed for nothing short of dream classes on Monday.

*Gorgeous semi-spring weather today that made me wish it would actually hang around instead of disappear as it undoubtably will.

Feel better soon, sweetie. (((hugs)))

My smiles were a little difficult this week. I've been feeling restless and out of place so this is a good exercise for me.

*an upcoming trip to Disney World, just me and the SO
*warm, spring weather on Friday
*got my down comforter dry cleaned (finally!!)
*played tourist in "the nation's oldest city" on Sunday.

Hope your week goes well, just waiting on le bébé to get done taking her own sweet time, lol.

I went on a nice long walk with my doggies this afternoon!
