List Friday

Yet another week that I don't have a decent idea for a flashback.
My last list was a summary of everything that annoys me. I think it was a little negative. I'll go to the complete opposite end of the spectrum and list some of the things that make me happy. This is by no means comprehensive....just a few of the things I can think of before going to bed.

(Have you ever wondered why my posts always show up during the 5 am hour? I write them before bed and schedule them to post in the morning. I am NOT up at that time)

* When I wake up early in the morning and find that Spencer is sleeping soundly, Ginger is snoring lightly and Michael is sacked out. Then going back to sleep myself.

*Enjoying a perfectly medium-rare steak with a nice glass of red wine.

* When the phone rings and I see on the caller ID that it's a friend calling unexpectedly.

* Sitting at the island at my parents house and talking to my mom while she cooks.

* Taking a walk with Ginger and Spencer where Spencer doesn't whine and Ginger doesn't stop to sniff or try to eat something gross every 14 seconds.

* Getting a greeting card in the mail.

* Finding a good deal on anything.

* That moment when all the dishes are done and the kitchen is clean.

* Finding a random good movie on TV when I didn't think anything watchable would be on.

* Ice cream

* Reading a book that I've been wanting to read and finding that it was actually really good.

* Spencer laughing.

* Watching Ginger sleep. It's very relaxing to watch a dog sleep.

* When I'm driving on a freeway that is at least 3 lanes and every move I make "works".

* Touring model homes and critiquing the good and the bad designs.

* That feeling you get on the way to the airport when you're going someplace awesome. And then the feeling you get when you finally get there.

* Hearing a song that reminds me of being 16 years old. Or 17 or 15 or heck, even 13.

* Iced coffe.

* Date night with Michael- no babies allowed. Doesn't happen very often.

* Finishing a project that I've been putting off (usually paperwork at work).

Wow- that was a lot. And it didn't take very long. I guess I'm feeling happy tonight.

These pictures don't have anything to do with the post.
Spencer has a new place to play. He loves sitting on the bar stools at the island. I think it makes him feel like a big boy. He insists on eating his afternoon snack here too.

Great list - it made me smile. Plus I am so impressed that you know how to make things post while you are sleeping . . . very cool!

Jenn- you too can make posts appear while you sleep. At the bottom of the box where you write a new post, click on "post options". Then you can change the date and time it will post. I've actually written stuff days in advance!
