A Joyful Week

I've actually had a great week.  It makes it much easier when you focus on the small things that bring joy into your life. 

I have found joy in letting Nate watch Cars only when I want him to.  That means distracting him by other doings during the day then when I need to relax (FB, eat, veg out), I act like it's a big treat and I'm cool Mommy again because I'm letting him watch "movie Cars, Mama".  I swear he thinks that's the title of that movie.

My sister Michelle's birthday was yesterday.  I find joy that she loves her new purse from Mom and me.  I love that I've talked to her on the phone about 47 times and on Skype a couple times this week.

I love that I got a Lilith Fair 2-for-1 coupon code last night so I finally got off my tush and bought tickets.  IN DENVER.  FOR MICHELLE AND ME.  SISTERS-ONLY TRIP!  My only anxiety is that I've not even been away from Nate for one night in his entire life.  Now I'm going to leave for 4 days.  Happy and nervous.  And definitely excited.

I'm full of joy that I have a great husband who I'm celebrating 10 years of marriage to today!

Thanks Whimsy for the joy challenge this week.  It's been, well, joyful!  Mission accomplished.

I'm so glad you've had a agreat week. You deserve it!

And I like the idea about Cars watching for Nate, I need to adopt something like that for Alice and Sesame Street. The Street watching has gotten a little out of control around our house.
