Some good advice I've heard is, especially when times are tough, it's important to enjoy the little things. So here are some little things that I enjoy:
1. Crunching leaves (although I get mad when they are soggy)
2. Tackling Lewis and being astonished every time he is able to stand up with me dead weighting trying to hold him down
3. PB&J or just J sandwiches, pigs in a blanket, Kraft macaroni and cheese, tomato soup and grilled cheese - tastes like childhood! (PS: Lewis, I just thought of what we should have for dinner tonight)
4. Lewis said he likes me cause I'm just as big a dork as him - how true that is!
5. When we walk to school together, even though I am glarey cause it's cold (glarey does not equal grumpy)
6. ESPN Game Day will be in Provo, Utah, at LaVell Edwards Stadium: This. Saturday.
7. One of my classes finished today
8. Last Saturday, we shoot our nephew, Caiden, with Nerf gun darts over and over again while he ran around in circles over and over again
9. Sometimes Lewis starts singing the very song that is in my head - it's weird.
10. Waffles with two different kinds of homemade syrup for Sunday dinner (we have three recipes for syrup now - maple, buttermilk, and blueberry)
11. We tried out a new cookie recipe - straight from the introweb - and it was actually really good - in both dough and cookie form! Thanks, Kitchenaid and internet.
12. Yesterday I figured out why the division of fractions algorithm works (I'm turning into my dear aunt Holli)
13. Google Voice
14. Our insanely comfortable bed, especially when it's cold because I can snuggle up under all the covers (sheets, duvet, and quilt) and make Lewis complain that I hog the bed
15. The smell of Lewis' deodorant and/or cologne
I could go on, but there are probably at least a million little things I could think of that I have started to enjoy more since really taking that advice to heart. At least! It certainly makes life more fun. I like it, anyway.
