Wednesday Smiles
Life Lemons
My smile:  I'm not dead yet.

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. :)

*Mom keeps getting good reports. *big smile*

*A gets to go to Vacation Bible School w/ a friend on evenings the rest of this week. Free up a little time for me and gives her something fun to do!

*C has been doing well with the separation anxiety this week - and as much as I've been having to leave him with people I trust but he barely sees/knows, that's been a real blessing.

[Really missing my hubby, my own house/bed/computer and my personal routine though.]

Hurray about your mom! That is really good news!

And I am completely jealous about your little break from the kiddos! I'm thinking of starting a babysitting co-op in my neighborhood. I need a wee bit of down time as well.

Thx, hon!
And the kids ARE with me so I really haven't had much break - when I am away from them I'm sitting with my Mom at the hospital... I guess that counts as a break. lol
The babysitting co-op would be amazing. We have absolutely noone to babysit for us. When I come down to visit family, I usually have lots of options. The only reason I'd ever consider moving back to BFE. lol

I've got plane tickets to San Francisco and am going home for an extended weekend.

The weather in Connecticut is beautiful for the first time in a while.

I started watching NCIS, which is a pretty amazing show.

Aww! I hope you have a great visit at home! That sounds like a real blessing!

My dad keeps trying to get me to watch NCIS also...but I am worried about getting into another show. I know there's a loyal fanbase out there.

(BTW - love your icon!)

Thank you so much!

NCIS is my grandfather's show. He absolutely loves it, and I never bothered to watch it but it's awesome. I've only seen five eps so far but I would definitely recommend it.

Glad you like the icon! I love yours, too! The squints have the most elaborate Halloween costumes--it's so impressive.

HUBBY started a new job!!! Hurray! And making more too! =D

*looks around* wait it's wednesday? Where was I and when did that happen?

- Boyfriend came home WAY before dinner tonight AND have promissed that he'll get out of work early-ish tomorrow to so that he can join me and the princess at my mom's b-day dinner.

- found my engaged-to-be-engaged-ring that i've been missing for months (only took off because my fingers got all sausage like while preggers)

In no particular order:

* witchman visiting the doctor while insured for the first time in 8-years.

* getting accepted to graduate school.

* seeing more of witchman now that he's working (yeah, can't explain it, but it makes me happy)

* riding my bicycle in to work (even though it wasn't the best of rides this morning)

* snuggling up with the witchpups

In the same vein as yours: I did not get struck by lightning in Monday's epic storm.

I had a pleasant day at work today.

I'm making chicken with couscous for tea and ignoring my toothache.


- It's summer! Soon! I (hopefully?) get to come say hi to you in person at some point. :D

- It's v. shallow but I've got a pretty decent amount of positive comments on a fic recently which always cheers me up. :D

YAY for not being dead yet. No deadness for L. Have pie instead. *hugs you*

-A coworker and friend, who I had a big argument with a few weeks ago, and I, are ok again.

-I've been with a stupid smile in my face since last Saturday when two friends and I went to that concert.

-Some people that make me easier to smile everyday.

It's good to be not-dead, isn't it? Enjoy it. *hugs*

yesterday my nephew graduated/was promoted from 8th grade to 9th grade. and a couple of his friends said I was "cool" and that made me laugh.

two more half days until summer for me!!! =)

congrats on being alive! ;)

*seeing the bevy of ficlets from you! Off to read :)
