2. I just won a giveaway from Barefoot Angie Bee (check out her blog. She's awesome and super hard core)! I'm so excited; I've never won anything, but I guess I had good karma entering it since I entered it with the hopes of winning the prize to give to my hubby. Good Karma! I'm going to keep reminding myself to earn more good karma this week.
3. I do love my job. It's exhausting me this week, but I've already had a few good laughs with my students and with my friends (there's nothing like kids to give you a good laugh). Tomorrow I start teaching one of my favorite books, Fahrenheit 451. I can't wait to hear what my students have to say about it!
4. My son ate meat for the third day in a row. I used to be a vegetarian by choice for years and was beginning to think my almost 3 year old was making that choice himself (is it even possible to make a choice like that at 3? LOL). We've had difficulty getting him to eat any protein (and he can't eat tofu or soy products because he's allergic to them... go figure. A wanna be vegetarian who can't eat soy). Sunday he ate bacon (in fact, he loves bacon now! But who doesn't love bacon. Honestly, it's the greatest thing on the planet!). Monday he ate a few meatballs, and tonight he ate some more meatballs. Okay, it's not life shattering or amazing, but I'm pretty excited about it.
5. I found yet another reason to love my hubby: He just booked a weekend getaway for our anniversary in October. We're going to stay the weekend at a Bed and Breakfast in Annapolis. It's not too far from our house, but this allows us to get away and be close to home just in case Dill has some weird reaction to food, pollen, or let's face it, air. The kid is allergic to everything! It'll be the weekend after the Baltimore Half Marathon, too, so even more reason to celebrate.
There's certainly more I could add, but five is a nice number (and a magic number in mythology...). I hope you found something today that reminds you how good life really is.
