good stuff

My friend Shana is finding grace in every day and I want to play, too. Especially after this week, which while not exactly bad felt uninspiring and nearly useless. And I hate that because what if I really did only have 37 days left in my life and I just spent numbers 33-36 being all grouchy & negative? Foolish. So here are some things that I am immensely grateful for, in no particular order:
  • A pleasant drive to a pleasant workshop with our school's beyond-pleasant counselor
  • Fantastic ham sandwich & Pepsi at a quaint deli in Longview
  • Helping a student who was near tears work through his short story writer's block
  • The spontaneous, vigorous hug from that student after he busted through the block
  • Successfully getting up early three days this week
  • Apple almond tart in the teachers' lounge
  • Finishing Season 1 of Dexter [Shana! Let's get together so I can give you cookies in exchange for Season 2!]
  • Seeing a preliminary floor plan for our new building
  • Grocery shopping (even without hottie checkers...sigh)
  • Italian chocolate bars from Stu's sister
  • Pizza with best friends

How were you blessed this week? Let it out.

Dude. If you're not already doing it, watch Prison Break next. I absolutely postively 100% guarantee it is for YOU (and Stu).

I was blessed with:

- a beautiful bouquet of flowers!
- the company of a friend I don't often see
- flirting
- a belated Christmas present
- a warm home on a freezing winter's day
- delicious food

Having my best friend back from Denmark after 3+1/2 weeks. I was missing her!

You need to check out (or send Stu to check out) my Thursday blog--it's so you that I linked to you.

Season 2 is right here in my hot little hands, waiting for you. I've got a Carlie basketball game tomorrow at noon-ish followed by a trip to your side of town for my weekly Trader Joe's run. Email me your cell number and maybe we can meet up while I am on the east side : )

Miracle Worker opened to spectacular reviews. My seventh grader got another week of straight As and our 15 year old dog hasn't died yet! Wonderful idea in the midst of the $ funk.
