*tap, tap*... is this thing on?

OK, people. That last entry? That was supposed to involve audience participation. Don't make me turn it into a meme! I just wanna hear from you... what are some of the small (or really small) things you really appreciate? What simple things make you happy? Leave it in a comment, or I will be forced to start a meme!

Damn, you are pushy. :)

What simple things make me happy? I dunno. Chocolate. My husband. My friends inside the computer. Is that enough?

My paint color turned out ok.

My furniture might arrive soon.

I'm getting an ultrasound tommorrow.

That last one might turn out to be a double edged sword...

Oh, sorry. I've been working major overtime at work and by the time I get done working, all I have the energy for is lurking, if that.

Simple things that make me happy?

Uninterrupted sleep.
My cockatoo sitting quietly on my shoulder.

Hi Sara :-) I meant to comment but I turned into a pumpkin at midnight.

Actually I was totally thinking along those exact same lines on Sunday night, while getting into bed with T. I said to him, "we're so lucky - we can afford pajamas!" I was thinking of people who live in refugee camps, and realizing how many simple things we take for granted that make me happy - in addition to 1) pajamas, we have 2) books, 3) good friends, 4) hot rice and beans with cheese for lunch, 5) hot tea, 6) woolly hats and, not so simple, each other. I'm definitely feeling thankful these days.

p.s. I went pwp, send me your email that you use to log on if you want me to add you to the list of readers (eep6 AT cornell DOT edu) - actually that goes for anyone reading this!

When I get down on things, I remind myself of all the wonderful things in my life that I have:

- My twin pregnancy
- My husband
- My loving family
- Our jobs that we love

Pretty damn good life.

Sorry I've been a bad blogger.

-Working from home.

-Being financially stable.

-My family.

-Fall weather.

-And most of all--being PREGNANT!

Just catching up today.

I am thankful for:

My puppy dog who consistently cracks me up even when she's being a pain in the rear

My husband who cares so much about this baby already that he nags the heck out of me for updates

Making into the 3rd trimester with very, very few complications/issues/troubles. There are no words to express how thankful I am for this blessing.

Luna bars, particularly the Chocolate Peppermint flavor.

Hope all is well!

I am thankful for pants that don't fall down everytime I move! This is something that I haven't experienced since I got preggo and I don't imagine I will again until I can wrap a belt around this tummy of mine!

My future baby
My husband
My family and friends!

Beautiful, crisp, cool fall days when the sun is shining and there isn't a cloud in the sky--then a fire when the evening gets really cold. The sight of my cats curled up together on the rug in front of the fireplace. Carving pumpkins with my nephew.
There's more, but I'll stop there. Thank you for making me do this--I have been so bitter lately that I really needed to stop and think about the little things that make me smile!

Well other than this pregnancy...
things that make me happy are:
Lying in bed with a good book
enjoying a delish meal
My home- I just love it

Simple things, yet I'm happy to be able to enjoy them.
