wednesday smiles
Life Lemons
My smile:  I feel half-dead, but I am, in fact, still alive.

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. :)

Writing plot is a KILLER. But 8600 words so far, and halfway there! Go, me!

Go you! What are you writing?

I found a chocolate bar in my desk at work :) Will not check expiration date...

Chocolate expires? *looks at ceiling, whistles tunelessly* Never heard of such nonsense! *wink, wink, nudge, nudge*

I really need to fish for happy things this week, so this is good for me. You are definitely a positive influence on me, doing these Wednesday smiles.

Lemme see....
Okay, I had 2 wonderful LJ friends from whom I had not heard in a long time respond supportively to a post I made in my personal (awstuff4friends) journal. Even though I knew they loved me as much as I loved them, it was a nice surprise to hear from them and extra special in my time of need.

My mom's knee isn't bothering her just from regular use anymore; only when she overdoes it, now.

My parents almost have all their stuff moved to the downstairs bedroom and bathroom, which means I'll have the upstairs to myself soon!

Thanks again, only_more_love, for helping me think of some positive things that happened this week. *hugs* I really needed that. More than you know.

podcasts and summer vacations

also, my new icon. *points at icon*

glad to hear you're doing well!!!

It might sound weird, but I am so happy the staff meeting I had this afternoon was NOT regarding me fucking up in any way. It's my boss who's feeling the heat, not me! Yay!

Also, I'm falling back in love with Harry Potter, thanks to the new movie coming out.

My kitchen is put back together! There is floor space! One can walk through without it being an obstacle course! There are COUNTERTOPS! The DISHWASHER is loaded and there are no dishes sitting around randomly!!!


My boyfriend who is away working away called me at work today. He couldn't really talk and was kind of whispering and then said, "oooh, gotta go." It made me smile just to speak to him for all of 20 seconds :D

I only just realised the other day that you added me as a friend and I had not added you. Sorry about that!! I added you now so you can read all my crap. ;)

I love posts like these...Bones used to get me over the Wednesday hump of the week, but now it's on Thursdays and on season break so these are great.

My smile today is from camp. I started this week as a counselor at preschool camp and today one of the shiest kids came over and wanted to snuggle and play animals with me. Makes me feel loved. :D

Two things my 3 year old said this week made me smile (laugh out loud):

"There's poo in my hiccups...yeah, in my tummy! Let's dance!!"

and then this morning:

"Mommy you got a big butt...wiggle it! Whoa whoa whoa! That's wiggly!!:

See? I'm smiling again just writing it down!

It's not being a very good week for me, but a couple of nice things:

- I'm having holidays in August. Just two weeks, and a coworker-and-friend and I are planning to travel somewhere together.

- I'm starting my new job next July 1st.

Being alive is wonderful.


I got a promotion, and accompanying raise, today. Woohoo!

I'm going on holiday tomorrow! :D To see ziggy and bea and space and YOU and jamie and liz and have lots of happy fun times. *glee*

(If it helps, you can plan to sleep while I visit and pull stupid faces at your baby. *nods sincerely*)

*Heating pad & midol.

After a month of rain, the weather was absolutely gorgeous today. Just perfect.

Good report from my kid's summer school. Can't ask for more than that!
