Isn't this so true?
I often look forward to big things a little too much and sometimes miss those little everyday things.
Today, I'm sharing some of the little things in life that make me happy. You know that things that kind of happen often and sometimes you don't even think about them? The things that are easy to take for granted? Those things.
*A clean kitchen with the dishwasher running. There's just something about cleaning up after dinner, turning the dishwasher on, and just knowing it's all clean. AHH!
*This thing right here. Oh my goodness! I couldn't do winters without him. For some reason Tab just doesn't see the need in installing heated floors in the master bathroom ;) so for now this guy is my BFF. A space heater...how did I ever do winters without one?? The second I walk in the bathroom I turn that guy on and I'm much happier about my life.
*Coffee, a good book, and a carpool line
*Coming home to dinner all ready to go in the slow cooker. We discussed this yesterday and you guys shared some awesome recipes. Thank you for that!!
*I actually have a love/hate relationship with this one but there are moments it makes me so happy. Reading with beginning readers...I have had moments of wanting to scream in frustration and cry tears of joy all while this is happening. Nixon is ALL BOY! He gets home from school and is ready to go outside and play. I love that about him but that makes reading homework a bit of a challenge. He reads one page and then half-complains/half-laughs about having to keep going, but he does this on EVERY page. It drives me nuts, but by the 6th page he can have me laughing so hard I'm crying. (I'm not sure this makes any sense written out...fyi.) His sense of humor makes me happy too.
*It doesn't last long. Seriously...only a few seconds but that tiny moment when you have ALL the laundry caught up and the only dirty clothes around are what's on your bodies?? That makes me happy.
*Mexican food-need I say more?
*Every year I try to re-organize pretty much everything....closets, rooms, drawers, etc. It takes me a long time to do all that so when I finally get to that point of everything being organized-aaahhh! It makes me happy.
*A fire in the fireplace
*SNOW DAYS!!! Do we ever out grow this one?? There's just something about a snow day! An unexpected break that forces you to stay inside. We love a snow day around here.
*A new pair of shoes-they can just make my day better.
*When my hubby does bath time for the kids, it's one of my favorite things. LOVE that!
*An iced tea
*A freshly cleaned out and washed car-I try my hardest to keep my house picked up and clean, but my car is another story. 99% of the time my car is a disaster! When it's all cleaned, it makes me happy.
*Watching my kiddos do something they love-baseball, basketball, dance, playing with trains. It doesn't matter what it is but I love getting to watch them do something they enjoy.
Today I'm going to be living in the moment and enjoying all those little things. I hope you will too. :)
Happy Thursday, Ladies!!
