What's Good

It has been an emotional couple of weeks for me and mine; it feels like we have been living the epitome of "when it rains, it pours" lately.  When times get tough, I find that it helps to remember the things that are good, and the things that are still making me smile.  Call me a hopeless optimist, but I'd like to think it keeps me sane and grounded.

So as I greet this weekend with open arms and heart, I hope to usher out the bad, the sad, and the stressful by appreciating some of the things that are just plain right.

Starting this afternoon, I will no longer be living the bachelorette life.  My partner in holey-jeans-wearing crime comes home to me today.  Hallelujah!

Speaking of that guy, I have him to thank for bringing me out of my baking slump.  Dr. D's favorite cookies (recipe here) are fresh and ready for the nom-age.

My coping mechanisms are typically either chocolate or new nail polish colors.  Have a guess at which one won out this week.

And of course, J-dog continues to be an endless source of entertainment.  Last night, Silence of the Lambs happened to be on television.  I chewed my nails through the whole thing and J-dog slept---until Precious the dog got yanked down into the pit in the ground by that conniving kidnappee.  After that, J-dog was glued to the television, no doubt to see to it that Precious got the proper veterinary attention after the whole ordeal.

...and: The Lion King is coming back to theaters in 3D.  I mean really.  That's just great.

just so you know, after I read this post, I was out and about and I saw that brand of nail polish. They had it in a grey I bought it. because of this. And I love it. Fan-freakin-tastic!

PS Though I know you want to move far away from here, part of me doesn't want you to because one day I would like to utilize your photography services. *lesigh*

@chestnutmocha: It is quite true... I really wish I could travel back in time, take eight-year-old-me by the shoulders and say, "I know it seems impossible now, but you have NO IDEA how much more awesome this movie will someday be!"

@Kaytlin: I love Essie polishes! They somehow seem to last me longer and not chip as easily. Glad to usher in another convert :) Also: have camera, will travel. But who knows where we'll actually end up!
