Chin up, Chin Up, Everybody Loves a Happy Face

I ordered a laptop computer yesterday. I was so excited. I’ve been wanting one for a few years now, and our computer is very old and big. Then, I did our budget last night. I called Dell this morning. I cancelled the computer order.
So since I’m feeling a little bummed and crampy and greasy this morning, I thought I should write down a few things that WILL make me happy today.

  • it’s raining. it’s supposed to rain all day
  • my mother-in-law is coming over this afternoon to clean– not tidy-up but CLEAN. She does those wonderful things that you never get to like mopping the floors, wiping down baseboard molding, dusting…
  • i have several really fun knitting projects going right now
  • emma is creatively painting with paintbrush, paper and WATER this morning.
  • Mary is happily chatting in her crib, emma is snuggled under the covers watching Maisy and I get a peaceful shower. I may even dry my hair with the hair dryer…

  1. man, the budget thing. how I can relate! I love that you have chosen to look at the bright side and enjoyed reading your list of ‘good things’…

    p.s. hope you got to dry your hair! isn’t it funny how things like that become such a luxury once you have kids?

  2. Blowing your hair dry? REALLY! WOW! That is a bonus 🙂 These days I just don’t even have the energy! And your mother in law cleaning… AHHHH to have family near by. You are rich in my book 🙂 I’ll pray that somehow you can get your laptop. You are being so faithful to give it up to be responsible. My prayer is that God just blesses you beyond 🙂
