The idea of Feel Good Friday (hosted this week by LiaSophiaTomgirl) is to mention five things that made you feel good this past week. It's a good idea for all of us to be reminded to remember the good. So here I go. Feel free to join in on Feel Good Friday, or just check out the other entries!
Things to feel good about today:
1. Is it just me and my sweet tooth, or are Thin Mints even better than they have been in years past? What are they putting in those things, anyway? Why can't I stop eating them?
Is part of the attraction the fact that they are only available for about one month out of the year?
Would it be wrong of me to buy like 500 boxes of Thin Mints and then wait until late summer, and resell them for about $2 more a box? Would it still be wrong if I did that as a fundraiser for the National Fragile X Foundation? Come on, who wouldn't love a box of Thin Mints in the middle of August? I bet I could make a fortune off Ebay. To send to the NFXF, of course.
2. I am a volunteer queen lately. I just can't say no. Yesterday I volunteered as a judge at the 3rd through 6th grade science fair. Twice a week I'm at the school libraries doing a variety of things. Today I decorated a bulletin board to celebrate the birthday of Dr. Seuss. Who wouldn't love doing that?!
All this volunteering keeps me busier than I like to be, but today at the library at the boys' school I got to see Zack. He has speech therapy in a room that's right by the library and I had occasion to walk by there a couple of times. He didn't see me but I snuck a couple of glances in there. He was doing so great; sitting, paying attention, answering questions, trying to pronounce the words she asked him to.
He was so cute, sitting at that table,working. I don't know how she could sit next to him and not just wrap him up in a big squeezy hug. I swear my kids are more adorable when I'm not around them.
3. This kid who rides the boys' bus, Tyler, who I mentioned in this post -- this week, for the first time all year, he waved at me and said hi, two times. I've been saying "hi" to that kid daily since September and finally he said "hi" back. He's not even my kid, and it warms my heart so much that he's finally responding to me!
Well, that's all I got for now. Three feel good things is going to have to suffice for today. Because with all this volunteering and Thin Mint eating, I have neglected housekeeping duties all week. When you've been pulling clean clothes from laundry baskets instead of closets and drawers for three days straight, and dinner dishes are still sitting in the sink, it's time to stop searching online for pictures of Thing 1 and Thing 2 and get cracking.
