Things that have recently made life happy:
– Dinner is cooking in the crockpot right this minute. – On Saturday, I went to Target and was looking for some black tights (to wear in, you know, eight months when it’s actually cold) and I found some for forty-seven cents apiece. That’s right. I bought two. I shall be going back to buy more, I think. – Blaine and Kristi brought us some delicious cookies on Mother’s Day and those cookies have certainly perked up my lunches. Alas, I took the last ones today. – I bought a swimming skirt to go with my swimsuit that I got for my birthday and hadn’t yet worn and that skirt was 50% off at the Nike outlet. Yippee. Also, cute. – Bart also got a new swimsuit (hooray – I loathed the old one with a deep and abiding intensity) and it was 60% off. – We went swimming with B and Ralphie (and their disturbingly cute children) this weekend for the first time this summer and it was glorious. We shall be inviting ourselves over often. – I talked to my mom for two hours on Mother’s Day. It pays to be the first one to call. – My mother apparently didn’t realize that kids are supposed to send their moms things for Mother’s Day and not vica versa, since she sent me a book in the mail on Monday. – I found out this morning that I got all A’s this semester (two A’s and one A minus). I’m sincerely hoping this means the school wants to give me a fat scholarship next year. – We’ve gotten up on time for the last two days and gone to the gym. Makes me feel happy. – I started taking iron pills about six weeks ago at my mom’s suggestion and I no longer feel like vomitting all over my shoes after running 0.06 miles. It’s quite glorious, actually.
