"Things I Love" - Like A Real Boy

  • Listening to Peanut's Dreams [in full detail - never a short dream from this kid]
  • When someone gets my humor.
  • Walking into a heated building after being outside for 44 seconds.
  • Being lifted off the ground during a hug.
  • Taking a long freaking hot shower after a long freaking run.
  • Clean [lavender smelling] sheets.
  • Ambien - minus the texts I don't remember sending after taking it.
  • When the Pita lays on my side of the bed for a few minutes . . . so my side will be warm.
  • Having cereal [food] fights.
  • Letters.  Like real ones, with envelopes & a stamp.
  • When the Pita calls me on accident and starts rattling off a stock trade before I say hello.
  • A An outdoor run with an old friend.
  • My "job" as a Mom.
  • My other job that brings in money.
  • Hugs.
  • Seeing Peanut play volleyball.  Loved.  Volleyball.

  • My iPhone. Sorry, I do.  Especially, the texting and camera parts.
  • Laughing.....like ab workout kind of laughing.
  • Holding a sleeping baby.
  • Being kissed on the top of  my head.
  • Folding hot [clean] laundry.   [ya, I stay freaking away from that hot, dirty stuff]
  • Andddddddddddddddddddddddddd . . . .
that MY girl will be home tonight.
Holy. crap. I. have. missed. her.

Happy. Freaking. Friday!

I played in the Junior Olypmics Volleyball tournament many many years ago. Wish I'd kept playing...

I am loving that PITA warms up the side of your bed. If that doesn't say I love you, I don't know what does.

Also loving hot baths with a book, waking up Emma in the morning, my new gas fireplace because being warm is what it's all about for me, so can you send PITA over here. ya that would be weird.

I'm loving:

Leftover jambalaya and the fact that my 3-year-old loves it too.

Melting snow. I've been home since Tuesday.

My husband who is going to grocery shop for me.

My electric bill being lower than expected.

My kids getting along pretty well today even though they have been home since Tuesday.

Girls' night tonight! Woo hoo!

Love your list. :-D
