Good Things

Waking up early and not having to rush around like a madwoman to get Austin to school on time.

Reading a novel & getting so into it that I don’t want to do anything else.

Getting emails.


Checking sites and blogs on the Internet.

Getting together for coffee with friends.

Sugar-free treats like Chapman’s Dutch chocolate ice cream, Reese’s peanut butter cups, Hershey’s chocolate bars with almonds and Crystal Light Pink Lemonade.

Being Coke-free for five years this month.

Going to scrapbooking crops with friends.

Reading on the couch with Austin (both me reading chapter books, like the Chronicles of Narnia, to him, and him reading his books from school to me.) Watching him become better at sounding out words, making connections and doing math. Playing word games with him & seeing him get all excited about what he’s learning.

Cuddling with Sage in the evenings in the blue leather chair to get her to fall asleep.

Sage’s naptime.

Playing “I Spy”, “Knock, knock,” Hide & Seek, and Chase with Jonah.

Watching Survivor on Thursdays, cuddled together on the couch, eating popcorn, naming off who’s in and who’s out during the opening credits.

Friends who love & support me.
