wednesday smiles
Life Lemons
My smile:

The sun is shining.

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 December 2007. 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. :)

Love your icon. ;)

Oh, man, you have my empathy. :( DH and I lived in Boston for a few years, and the weather was simply miserable. Like Dementors, it can suck the life and spirit out of you!

The awesome afternoon I had with sweetjamielee Monday.

- I've been having a terrible headache since Monday evening, but a couple of hours ago I realized that it had been gone. So, no headache now!

- I seem to be doing better at my new job. It will be very long until I can do it right, but baby steps...

I wish you a fantastic week.

- Saw ziggystarduzt last week and had a very awesome time playing with kids' toys on Granville Island and playing board games with her and her husband. :D

- Am currently at bea_tricks's house!!! Her cat is ridiculously effing cute and she is lovely. We have eaten much food, watched much TV and are fully intending to go do tourist stuff today. :D

- SpaceDay tomorrow!

My Wednesday smile is two-fold:

1. Plans are finally shaping up for the wedding in January and I can lay low for several months and chill and not worry about it.

2. One of my best friends told me today that she is pregnant, so I have my very first surrogate niece/nephew on the way. I may not want any of my own, but I'm really good at spoiling other people's... Sadly, they are in Detroit, but I'll still be sending all kinds of stuff her way.

I woke up this morning
I made oatmeal cookies
and I have 4 episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation season 1 and Sherlock Holmes: The Hound of the Baskervilles to watch

that's about all I can think of today

My daughter did AWESOME work at swim lessons today. So. Proud. She's like a little fish. And Ben actually TRIED, even though he hates it and hates getting splashes of water in his face.

one day closer to the weekend.

REALLY REALLY REALLY fun job at a kids art camp!!!!! and i'm feeling much better, thanks for asking!!!

I've gone to the gym or worked out at home every day for the last 7 days IN A ROW and today I am taking a day OFF! (OK, so today is Thursday now, but oh well!)

1. It's summer and I sometimes have more free time than I know what to do with!

2. Harry Potter & the Half-Blood Prince comes out in less than a week - and I got tickets to a midnight showing! :)

3. Did some hanging out with friends this week that I hadn't seen since school got out at the beginning of June. And made more plans for the coming weeks :)
