Wednesday Smiles
Perfect Imperfections - unexpectedbox
My smile:

Spring is kinda-sorta around the corner.  OK, so it snowed a little today.  But it didn't really stick.  And OK, so it's rainy, cold, and gray outside at this exact moment.  I know spring is still out there, giggling and playing hide and seek, and I'll catch her soon enough. :)

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. :)

L, am I right in that you are 4 days from due date?? :D *big smile*

*g* Yes'm. I'm guessing she'll come sometime after the 22nd, though. But that is based on absolutely nothing!

Thanks for remembering, hon. *hugs*

Hi girl!! I picture you so busy that this post was a surprise for me. :)

-I've been feeling less tired for several days in a row. You know, iron deficiency due to an enormous uterine myoma.

-We're having sunny days, very, very cold, but sunny.

-I make the best hummus in the world.

Have a great week, we'll be here whenever you come back posting. Say hi to Misha from us if you see her soon. ;)


*g* I am driving myself a little batty, which means I need this post more than ever.

I'm glad you're feeling less tired. Are you having to take iron supplements?

And sunlight makes everything seem a bit better, doesn't it? For me, the worst winter days are those bitterly cold ones where the sun hides, and everything takes on that horrible gray tinge.

I love hummus. Yum. Perhaps someday I'll have the chance to sample yours. :) See? I told you I needed this post.

Many, many hugs to you. Reading your comments honestly made me feel good. ♥

Are you having to take iron supplements? --> Yes, for three months, still two months left. It'll be like this until I accept to go under a hormonal treatment (which I won't) or get the myoma of hell removed (which will happen sooner or later).

I love hummus. Yum. Perhaps someday I'll have the chance to sample yours. --> If you're ever in Spain make sure to visit the north. ;)

I'm glad you're feeling good.

If only the heart listened to the head. *g* :hugs:

* Being shown around the city by my boyfriend, and hanging out at all the bays on a warm sunny winter day.

* New Bones ep for Canadians tonight :-D

* A whole week off work

Lucky you! Enjoy your time with your bf, and I hope Bones entertains you tonight. :)

Smiling at the open suitcase on the floor and the long weekend away from the circus that is my work :)

Ah... That sounds absolutely lovely. I do hope you enjoy your long weekend. And don't you dare think about work! ;)

Spring is kinda-sorta around the corner.
I certainly hope so :)

My smiles:
-Sun has been out lately, and despite the fact that it's not super warm, I'll take what I can get.
-Mid-winter break was this week (mon/tue/wed) for my school, so I've gotten some relaxing time in.
-My school's basketball team won a game on Friday in an amazing way - last second falling-down shot going in to put us over the top - against our rivals, and then last night won their first playoff game, also by one point. Extremely wonderful, as we'd had a bit of a fiasco the week before [if you want to hear me ramble about it, here: http://ggjunkie33.livejournal.com/21046.html]
-My birthday is tomorrow, and I'll get to finally be "officially legal". :)
-Your due date is coming up soon, right? That is extremely exciting! Hope things are going well :D

*I had a much better day subbing yesterday and I managed to get some fic written.

*Went to an awesome Ben Folds concert on Saturday. Best V-day ever!

Only a couple days left until your little one arrives? So exciting! :)

This week's smiles:
- My daffodils are sprouting even though the snow only went away on Monday.
- I hopefully only have one more week with a cast on my leg then physio.
- My friend came round this afternoon and we had a jolly good chat.
- My other friend is coming round tomorrow and she can tell me all about her trip to London and the visit to The Houses of Parliament.
- I just had delicious tagliatelli - small things are to cherish when you're trapped in the house!
- Your impendingness: see icon.

my smiles,

=my friend from new york is visiting
=i have spring break
=it snowed today, and it was very pretty!!

I am lying in bed with a heating pad under my neck, my computer on my chest, my son asleep at her feet, and my daughter snoring while plastered against my left arm. Bliss.

I understood math today! At least one of the subjects that I have to learn for my exam. That was pretty cool.
