Good Things

IN the spirit of continuing to post about things that make me happy, here are a few things that have made me smile.

Faux Kate Spade handbag purchased at Goodwill for 1.99

My garden in bloom again.

I'm still on-again off-again, as I'm sure my infrequent and weird posting reflects. Spring is here and I'm loving the good weather and long days. I'm less than a week from an 11 day vacation, and Thomas's and my 2 year wedding anniversary is this coming Monday. I've got plenty to smile about.

Still, I'm struggling to stay on an even keel. The kids are always particularly trying during the week before a vacation, and my gas bill came and it's 300 dollars, because you know, excellent.

It's weird: in the spring I get these crazy urges to do chores. Like, right now, I just really want to mix a big tub of OxyClean and go out and wash the cement in front of the house. Seriously. And I think I'm going to indulge myself in that today. I also crave giving the dogs a bath. And I'm finally feeling ready to tackle the music room wall that has been waiting for a revamp since November. Maybe spring cleaning is a real and actual urge, instead of just something mom's say to get everyone to pitch in once and a while.

'instead of just something mom's say to get everyone to pitch in once and a while.'

That was not a happy comment!

Well. I think your flowers are lovely. And your purse -- great find! Very happy things indeed. And you didn't even need to do a mini-triathlon, like I did, to find the happy. :) Which may be the best thing of all.

For a knockoff, that's a pretty durn cute, and you can't beat two bucks!
