Time to refuel

This actually is a burnt out light bulb. 
MAN. My light bulb is burnt out you guys. I'm busy at work, I have a zillion errands to run, I can't catch up on hausfrauing, my mind is going a mile a minute all the time. I'm feeling the pull from many directions, and pressure to do and be from all sides. My brain seriously felt like it might fall out of my head yesterday.

This morning I thought about the small things that made me smile over the past week and it helped me relight my fire enough to switch it into gear and finish this week out in ass kicking style.
  • Sleeping with the windows open
  • New nail polish
  • Catching Overboard on tv
  • Staying up late to finish a good book
  • Sleeping in
  • Laughing so much my cheeks and stomach hurt
  • Dreaming about soft ice cream
  • Found money
  • Seeing lots of sweet mullets in person
  • A successful new recipe
  • A coupon for a free iced coffee
  • Two vats of iced coffee in my fridge 
  • Spending time with my BFF 
  • Hearing one of my more obscure favorite songs on the radio
  • The arrival of US Magazine in the mailbox just as the weekend is starting
  • Leftovers from my neighbor =  don't need to pack my lunch
  • A cheery little pitcher
  • Drying lavender
  • Kisses from my dogs
  • Getting a video of my brother's first college soccer game from my mom since I couldn't be there
  • A funky bottle adds a little disco to dish doing 
  • Fruit in a bowl
  • Turning off the Republican National Convention and going to bed
  • A shopping trip with MFD
  • The smell of baby powder
  • Brother's Pizza
  • Getting veggies from my uncle's garden
  • Brie
  • A three day weekend looming in the not so distant future
What's getting you over the hump today?

p.s. I mentioned coffee twice in that list. That calls for another cup. Cheers. 


  1. I have heinous allergies and kind of aboring week at work this week. Not to say I don't have work to do, but nothing exciting going EXCEPT I got PROMOTED to manager, which is something to which I've been striving for years! So I've pepped my week up with celebrations, congrats balloons from my bestie, some sushi and a new pair of earrings. Hurrah!

    1. Now that sounds like a stellar week. Many kudos! Enjoy your celebrations!

  2. This is my favorite kind of post! This morning it was so gorgeous out that I started cleaning up the garden - typically a back breaking event. I just kept telling myself how fortunate I am to have the time and the strength and the willingness to do it, and that the garden wouldn't bring me anywhere NEAR the joy it does if I didn't work it with my own 2 hands. Just kept repeating how grateful I am to be able to do it. The proverbial Indigo Girls' 'Hammer and a Nail' came to mind.
    Now my hands are a bloody mess, so I will work on my nails, and toenails too. Again, lucky to still be able to reach the aforementioned appendages!
    The whole gratitude list thing is an incredible tool for peace of mind, eh?

    1. It really does center you, to think of things you're grateful for. It brings serenity and makes the big bad things seem not so big and bad.

  3. Accentuate the positive whenever possible!
    Just found this on the Twitter- missed it on the facebook!
    That is a positive to me.
    Will re-tweet immediately!
    Carpe noche(it's 7:05 pm now)
    Love your momma!
