OK, so to make up for Yesterday's Rant about stupid, moronic people, I thought I would tell you some things that cheered me up just this morning.
My husband, all clean and still a little damp, snuggling with my daughter and I before he finished getting ready for work. Kenzie came in looking for Daddy and was so relieved that he was still there. Big huggies and kissies were had and then he laid down with her and I for a few minutes. I fall more in love with that man every time I see how good he is with our kids.
My son, thinking he is being sly by giving me a huge hug and then asking for chocolate milk. I know what you are after, buddy. Food, it's always food for you.
My neighbor's dog, Bella. She is visiting us today while her mommy, Angie, is at work. She is a Bishon Frise and the most stinking cute dog ever! Apparently, she has ditched Angie and run up to our porch for the last few days so she finally just brought her over to play for the day. She is great with the kids, and I love having her around. Plus I figure it is good training for when we finally get a dog.
When I check my email, I love getting messages from friends out of the blue. Today I got one from an old friend and I was delighted. Ooh, delighted, I like that word, too. It just isn't used enough. Delighted. Try it in a sentence today. You will be delighted.
Packing is getting me slightly turned on, I must say. We move a month from yesterday, and everything is coming together nicely. We got rid of shit at our garage sale so what is left is needing to be packed. I am a little sad to put away my kitchen appliances (oh, food processor, don't be sad, I'll use you soon. And stand mixer, you won't be far behind, baby.), but I know they will soon be sitting in a pantry of their own again soon.
My daughter dressed up as Hula Girl. She made this super hero up awhile ago because her brothers have Superman, Batman, and Wolverine costumes, and she had none. Since I can't find her a Wonder Woman outfit that doesn't cost less $50, she made up Hula Girl. She dances her way to justice. She has been dancing around with Bella for awhile now and I just can't help but laugh at her.
The smell of laundry, clean laundry, is wafting through the house. I use a scent free detergent, and Snuggle Exhilarations Wild Orchid and Vanilla fabric softener, and it smells awesome! I love when I hug Jay when he gets home from work and he still smells yummy.
Does that make up for being a cranky bitch yesterday? I hope so. I truly do.
