I’ve been paying more attention to the bad than the good lately. Time for a look at the good things in life!

Tabitha is really enjoying her theater class this week. That’s really no surprise, but it makes the constant back and forth drive worth it.

One of the instructors told me yesterday that Tabitha is such a pleasure to have in the class. I thanked her and she said, “No! Thank you!” which made me feel really good.

I napped for an hour and a half today and the girls were just fine amusing themselves without once trying to wake me up.

Chris offered on several different days to stay home with me and help out. I declined because I never felt I was quite that bad off, but the offer was more than appreciated. In hindsight, I probably should have taken him up on it last week.

Daisy has not complained once about all the running around in the car we’ve been doing. I’ve tried to make it bearable for her so I guess I succeeded.

I have two fabulous concerts to look forward to at the end of summer- Green Day and Blink-182 w/ Weezer

The sun has been out 2 days in a row. Beautiful, glorious sunshine! Warms my soul. All windows have been open and the breezes are heavenly.

I have successfully given up caffeine. I had one day where I caved and paid the price by feeling nauseus for a couple hours afterward. It’s been almost 3 weeks and I don’t intend on drinking it again. Restaurants are a challenge, but water is better than feeling sick.

I had a wonderful date night with Chris on Tuesday. We had dinner first, though a quick meal as we were on a time schedule, and it was delicious. My sandwich was called the “yuppie veggie” and had artichokes, avocados, provolone and salad on warm bread. We saw The Hangover and while it wasn’t a laugh a minute for me, it was fun and enjoyable overall. The important thing was spending time alone with Chris.

I never really wrote much on it, but I went to a reunion of tons of people I worked with at Disneyland back in the ’90s. It was amazing how easily it was to talk with people I haven’t seen in at least 10 years. I had a fabulous time and cannot wait until we do this again. Way better than my high school reunion where I spent most of the evening only talking with Chris. I can’t even count how many people I chatted with at the Disney reunion!

Despite not being 100% well yet, I no longer need any meds at all. The coughing is more than managable and I don’t anticipate trouble sleeping tonight. I’ve been taking so much crap in the last week and a half that’s it’s a relief to no longer need anything but hot tea.

Dodgers won!

Chris and I are always on the same page in life, we’ve been together 15 years and I could not imagine a better mate.

    Good stuff!

    (I’m the complete opposite when it comes to weather, though. I get happy when it rains and curse the sunshine. LOL)
