So does seeing this sheepish grin on Sheridan's face after she put on her oh-so stylish outfit. And her boots. Don't overlook the sassy boots.
It's been a week ... a doozy of a week. And I'm tired.
... The baby cr*pped in the shower tonight.
... A friend has been going through personal struggles which have me sad and sleepless.
... I have a never ending cough.
... The girls have been fighting. Ugh the fighting. The time-outs. The missing movie night.
... The dog escaped from the yard. Again. She wandered several blocks away and was returned by a neighbor.
... And the girl's school, located directly on the beach, was canceled today due to the tsunami warning.
But after taking a few deep breaths, I reminded myself that I appreciated many things too. Like my friends ...
... And P.F. Changs.
... And sorority sisters.
... And for babysitting in-laws.
... And day-care.
... And Skype.
... And Words with Friends.
... And an email from the builder stating that our house should be underway in the next few weeks.
... And for Facebook ... with its ability to reach out to friends in Japan and surrounding countries to find out if they were OK after yesterday's devastation.
But most of all? I'm truly thankful that I didn't have to share the garlic mushrooms.
