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.
