This week left me a lot to be disillusioned with. I had days when I just couldn’t take the news anymore. And then….sometimes you find out that hard work, good values do pay off. Yes Claudette- tell your teen that hard work does still count. And always remember to be grateful for the small things- because those are the things that get us through the bad days, and bring us to the good days.
- Mass transit
- weather pleasant enough that I was able to go out in just a fleece
- My friends daughter got matched for her residency! So thrilled for her!!
- clear plastic storage boxes. Happy day
- leftovers that reheat well
- Friends to discuss the whole college cheating scandal
- Facebook and Instagram are back up….whew…that was a close one
- No line at Trader Joe’s on a Thursday afternoon
- The College Counselor at my Daughters school
- 15% off and free shipping, which turns out to be next day because it’s being shipped from 10 miles away
- My amazing friends and support network who cheered and cried with me this week because it ended up being a good week
- My Midwest friend survived the horrible storm the other day- though the snow was pretty high thanks to the wind
- My doorman who was able to peacefully subdue a knifed person trying to enter our apartment building
- Blue Jays
- Counting- I have a lot of fears and hang ups, one of which is heights. When my daughter and I went to Paris, my kid wanted to go to the top of Notre Dame. Steps, tight spaces…yeah…good times. To calm myself going up and down, I count the steps. It gives me something logical to focus on. I realized at the gum today that I count in my head when I’m trying to get through a tough exercise. Counting calms me and gets me to the next part
- Went to Botanic Garden in the rain, and it was wonderful because the thing we were seeing (which was indoors) was not crowded. So pleasant!
- brewing a cup of loose leaf tea
- when the dog poops early in the day
- A heart warming chick lit novel
- Any Hallmark mystery movie except for Garage Sale
- My Daughter got into a college that she would love to attend. For the first time in six months I can sleep a little easier
