Is anyone else COMPLETELY swamped this week? I keep sending my kids' school the stinkeye, because their school made this entire week a holiday. Aren't we frazzled enough trying to get all this holiday magic to happen-- especially those of us with "people" coming over-- without having bored kids fighting and arguing all the live-long day? I'm in favor of school. a) It's educational, b) they have people with whistles to break up arguments (maybe that's what I need. A whistle...), and c) the kids come home mentally exhausted-- PLUS school sends homework to keep them busy at home. I miss sending them to school. Yay for Mondays! (Can you just see my kids' glaring faces as I cheer them off to school?).
But this is Thursday, and as loyal followers might know, we do happy shiny shout outs on Thursdays-- woot woot! Here are some of mine:
- It's Thanksgiving! There will be pie. Oooh, is anyone else in favor of a backwards Thanksgiving? It could be an all-pie feast! With turkey and green bean casserole for dessert. I don't know about you all, but by the time we roll out dessert, everyone is so full they say things like, "I couldn't possibly have pie-- oh, maybe a sliver." I'm ready to cut to the chase. Give me the pie first and I'll have a sliver of turkey.
- A Rejection-Free Disneyland Day! Some of you may know about my Rejection-at-Disneyland, (it isn't a very long piece of backstory, but click HERE if you want to reminisce with me... ahh, good times). This may be the only downside, and I mean ONLY downside to Blackberry: mobile rejections. However, once you've taken the big R standing in line at the Happiest Place on Earth, you can pretty much roll with ANY rejection and keep moving forward. So I say, Blackberry rocks! (See? Notice it's still positive. It counts-- neeners).
- A Surprise Party! Surprise birthday parties for adults are so awesome. My good friend's party was last weekend and I think my favorite part was the moment right BEFRORE the unsuspecting birthday girl walked through the door, where all these adults hid and giggled like little kids. It's so rare to see adults with genuine joyful gleams in their eyes. (Psst. Hey good friend, [who reads this blog but has never set up an account to become a Follower. That's okay, it's cool] you're getting a blog post mention! Yes, it took me long enough, but I couldn't find a way to work in sweet bread and coffee mornings. The surprise party was golden).
Okay everybody, don't be shy. What happened in the last week that made you smile? Share your good news! No announcement too small! No exclamation point too over-the-top!!!!! If it made you smile it's worth sharing, because positivity is what the Coaster is all about. :)
