Small Pleasures

  • Long hot showers
  • Quiet time
  • Air conditioning
  • I found out that if I go to Half Price books, I can get magazines for 50 cents!!!! I can't buy the current issue, but if I don't mind waiting a WEEK for weeklys or merely a few weeks for a monthly, I can get them for 50 cents. That so rocks! I've let all my magazine subscriptions expire so this was an awesome find.
  • Being able to take Rock Band to Alcatraz so the kids can play to celebrate their last day since they've had perfect behavior for me!
  • Money from teaching summer school
  • The nice guy who works at my local video store who lets me get free movies if I'm going to show them at Alcatraz
  • Books
  • libraries
  • my niece and nephew
Hey, it's a start...

I love it! Stay on the bright side. You are most definitely meant to be happy.

Leann- thanks!

Cheryl- thanks lady! I'm not sure about the happy part, but... one step at a time, right?

It's those "small pleasures" that will get you through the days of rough times. Keep thinkin' positive. What's that old adage about "when life hands you lemons?" Well we could drown in lemonade at our house, but we aren't.
