>I must think happy thoughts right now because J is a bit miffed at me for having eaten his last-Friday-dessert. I seriously somehow thought he didn’t want it. I don’t know how I came to that conclusion because I realized this evening HE VERY MUCH WANTED IT!! My best guess as to why I consumed it is: it was TIRAMISU (coffee!!). AND yesterday, while attempting not to fall asleep while tutoring, it was the only coffee available to me in 5 minutes between kids. Plus, it being almost a week old, I didn’t even stop to think about it….

Enough airing of The Jarvis Marital Problems. We seem to fight over desserts a lot. Hehehe:)

Here are a few things that make me happy this week:

  1. Lizzy and I eat a piece of zucchini carrot bread each evening.
  2. I played my violin very well today while practicing and only slightly less well at my lesson.
  3. My fingertips are getting calloused!!!
  4. I have exercised 5 times in the past 7 days.
  5. My house is clean!!!
  6. Coming home tonight are: my mom. my sister. my brother. I get to see them all tomorrow afternoon, after work! Sadly, leaving on Saturday are: my sister. my sister. my brother-in-law. my nephew. my nephew. my delightful niece. Alas, I will not be able to borrow any children for 2 weeks:(
  7. Lizzy goes home tonight! We will have the house to ourselves. Oh. My. Gosh. I am just about jumping with excitement!!!! J and I have remarked “This is how it will be when we have kids? We’ll only be able to have face to face conversation after 10:00? We’ll be exhausted and only want to clean the house and then sleep? AND SHE’S A GROWN KID. AND ONLY ONE KID.” I’m a little disappointed in us already.
  8. I went to the library on Monday. I got a ton of new books, 2 of which I’ve already read 4 days later. It had been 3 weeks since my last book and all the magazines I’ve been catching up on aren’t as good as a book. What made me sad was my $5 fine for late books. Sigh.
  9. J is wonderful:)
  10. Spock hasn’t gone to the bathroom on our carpet in weeks! J’s idea of aluminum foil on places Spock especially loves seems to be working. Also, my efforts at cleaning carpet helped too. I have to think this because if they didn’t, what was all that effort for?!?! 20 pounds of baking soda and a gallon of vinegar!!!!
That’s all the happiness I can give you this week!!
