I have a sister-in-law that is both wise and deep.
She says, "This is my life. And I'm in it."
Ain't that the truth?
You can't fight it. You just have to live it.
So you really, and I mean REALLY, have to savor the little things. Even when you have to force yourself to make something little seem like it's what's making your life worth living. Sometimes, grasping at straws is all ya got.
Yesterday, there were a few things that gave me small moments of satisfaction and contentment.
I can really only give an opinion up to 3/4 of the way through book two, (that was a mouthful). But they're awesome so far. The story is great and you don't have to put too much mental energy into reading it.
And all the characters are likable. (Even puss-oozing goblins who kiss 14 year old girls. That's right...now don't you want to read it?)
Next on my gee-I'm-glad-for-the-little-things list: the tacklebox briefcase.
You know you can't get Caboodles at Walmart anymore? And I mean the big plastic, tacky 90's versions. I have a ton of stuff for doing Lily's hair and it was overtaking her little bath caddie.
Kind of bad-A for hair accessories, right? Makes me feel like a hair-gangsta when I'm carrying it. And only $5. Not bad.
The third goody is this food chopper.
I originally saw how totally awesome food choppers were on What Would Brian Boitano Make.
He's just super-fantastic...just like the scrarf around his neck.
I used the chopper yesterday for onions. It was the most joyful onion-cutting I've ever done. No crying involved.
That was yesterday.
I wonder what will make bring me little moments of contentment today. (I see a fruit salad in my future.)
