    I thought it was time for a just because thread. :) So.... I'll get started:

    Today my niece and I went to Sweet Frog (which is enough to make me smile :D ) While we were sitting there eating our frozen yogurt a little girl came up and sat with us and began chatting. She was so stinking cute. Her grandmother came over and apologized to us, and we told her how much we had enjoyed the visit. Before they left, the little girl came over and hugged us goodbye. :hugs: It made the day for both of us.

    True conversation... I laughed so hard.

    Me: I need salt and fat for dinner.
    BF: Um. How about pork rinds wrapped in bacon and drizzled with cheese?
    Me: (long pause) I was thinking more along the lines of Chinese takeout.
    BF: You have a serious lack of imagination.

    I couldn't get something from the top shelf at a store and someone helped me.

    I've gained back about twenty if the pounds I lost because i injured my legs and haven't been able to stand up for long periods of time led alone work out. Even minor walking my legs would kill me and then my knees would feel like someone kicked me in them.

    Two months ago i went to the gym I tried the elliptical and within a few mins I was in excruciating pain. Same thing with the exercise bike snd walking around the track. I was very frustrated because those three workouts are considered low impact and my doctor said other than swimming, there was nothing else I could do for cardio. He recommended I lift weights but u wanted to burn fat, not just pile on muscles.

    I kind of developed a phobia of the gym because it hurt me so much to go and frustrated me because without it I kept packing on the pounds

    I went back to the gym yesterday and got on the bike and I was able to ride 35 mins. I went back again today and did 35 minutes on the bike and 10 minutes on the elliptical.

    My grin was ear to ear because my body has obviously been healing itself and my pain is getting better

    A friend of mine once shared something her friend told her. She said that if you ever need a pick me up feel good compliment, just visit a car dealership. It was a joke about sales people laying it on thick. Today I was at the mall to look for an outfit for a second interview and there was a make up sales GUY who was likely on commission and just laying it on really thick with the compliments. It made me smile and remember my friend's comment.

    Playing restaurant with my little boy, well more like playing drive-thru. Every morning I go to Sonic and get a Diet Coke. He has a wooden swing set play thing with a clubhouse on top of the slide. He'll go up there and stick his hand and say, "Here go. Diet Coke." I'll give him money, he goes to the other side and pretends to push buttons (cash register), comes back to give me change, and tells me to have a good day. :)

    Watching my son grow up. He says the best things and he always makes me smile!! Today, he put on a talent show for Tigger using a Puppet Show from my classroom. He later was playing with a toy cash register. He gave his Oma a dollar. She then asked if she could buy a kiss with the dollar, and he kissed the dollar! LOL it was too cute. It's making me sad that summer is almost over for me :(

    I asked my fiance to make me a bookmark on a piece of notebook paper while I was reading and he was drawing. This is what he made:

    It makes me smile and laugh just looking at it. It's our kitty and dog. :)

    The look my puppy gives me when she wants the the lamp turned off so she can doze in the chair. She will stare at the light, stare at me, and repeat until I turn it off.
    She is so smart!

    My closet....

    My project this week has been cleaning my bedroom (aka the dumping ground for everything I can't find a place for or don't want in the public rooms).

    I invested in cute bins and storage thingies (a technical term) and whoa - I am very close to having a grown up, organized, uncluttered bedroom. It feels great!

    I love The Container Store - if I don't think about how much money I am spending.

    When I came out of the front door of school after a long, sweaty afternoon of packing and lugging boxes to my van, 4 of my students were on their bikes and skateboards. I heard, "MrsC, MrsC, MrsC! I'm so glad to see you! I didn't give you a good-bye hug!"

    Yesterday I took my niece (3 yes old in Aug) and my son to the lake for the day. On the way home she had to call her mom. She kept telling her mom she had to much fun.

    Yesterday, I had lunch with 2 friends from school. Smiles and laughs.
    Today, I smile because it's my 27th anniversary and I'd marry him again tomorrow.

    I picked up my engagement ring yesterday from being sized. It's back on my finger where it belongs. My fiance picked it out all by himself (we didn't even talk about it--I wanted a surprise) and it is perfect! We will be getting married exactly one year from today; I can't stop smiling!

    Things that made me smile:
    • Dinner with a friend who is also moving to a new school
    • Holding another friends baby
    • Saying yes to a new teaching position
    • Knowing that this time next week I will be getting to play with my two nephews

    Yesterday: I was able to help out an older woman I know. Just offering to let her borrow something of mine made her so happy.

    Today: I have the nicest mailman ever. He throws out a treat for my doggy when he's out in the yard. I watched doggy sniff around for the treat and he couldn't find it so I had to go out in my slippers and jammies in the wet grass to help him LOL He was so happy when I found it for him I swear he smiled at me. That made me smile too!

    I am currently going through IVF (we are using a surrogate to carry) and I had a scan today. They are we're shocked at how well I am responding and said that it all looked picture perfect. I have NEVER had good medical news in my whole life. No matter what the outcome, I want to hold on to this good news. I was grinning from ear to ear:)

    I didn't sleep very well last night and apparently slept through my alarm (the music just became part of my dream)-woke up about 20 minutes late. I went to step out of bed and there was my puppy just lying beside the bed waiting for me to wake up. I think she knew I needed the sleep because usually she won't hesitate to wake me! ;)

    Pier One refunded me thirty extra dollars today and I didn't realize it until I was back in the car. I returned to the store and explained what happened and the manager said he appreciated the honesty and told me to keep it. :)

    Loaned a dollar to a lady in line at Wal-mart - her smile could have lit up the store!

    My kitty-cat's kisses when I got home, and my puppy-dog's tail wagging so hard I think it gets sore!

    I helped her momma take them to the doctor yesterday. They are up to 11 lbs and 5 oz (pictured) and 9 lbs 10 oz (her sister). If you all remember, their triplet only made it 6 days.
    I'm 'babysitting' again tomorrow. Their parents need to paint, so they will be home but I will be on baby duty.

    Redman (cat in avatar) following me from room to room as usual and taking a nap with me. He acts just like a faithful old dog and will even wake up from his nap to follow me to the next room or outside. He made me smile (and laugh.)

    I love when cats think they're dogs! Mine are like that too. All three will follow me around unless one or more is off napping on a windowsill.
