Today I happened to be snooping around 'One Cluttered Brain's' Blog......who happened to be snooping around 'Scary Mommy's' Blog...and both of them were talking about what gives them Joy in their lives...... So I thought I'd join in too, for a chance to win a 'ONE THOUSAND DOLLAR American Express Gift Check' to spend on anything that I want.....so here's the......
Simple things that bring Joy to my life: (in no particular order)
1.) Finding a $20.00 bill in my pocket. (.....in a jacket or a pair of jeans that I haven't wore in weeks.)
2.) Getting a phone call from my kids. (...for no specific reason...just to talk.)
3.) Ice Cream (specifically 'Strawberry CheeseQuake' or 'MooseTracks')
4.) Going out to eat! (.... for Cheeseburgers!)
5.) Stepping on the scales to find I've lost weight. (...even one pound, I'm not picky!)
6.) A clean house (...that I didn't have to clean!)
7.) An Ice Cold Beer (or Margarita, or Red Bull & Vodka, or Sparks, or Vodka & Tonic......well....you get the picture.....) after a long day at work.
8.) When my husband tells me he loves me... (just out of the blue, for no reason at all.....and he hasn't even done anything that requires forgiveness.)
9.) Playing 'hookie' from work. (...and doing absolutely nothing all day long but laying around in my pajamas, curled up on the couch with an afghan, watching 'Lifetime' movies, eating chocolate chip cookies, french fries, tuna fish sandwiches and drinking cappiccinos and Red Bull all day long.)
10.) Having an awesome 'Hair Day'! (....and then seeing lots of friends around town - that you haven't seen in awhile - who happen to look like SHIT!)
11.) An entire day watching a 'Two and A Half Men' and 'Til Death' Marathon on TV.
12.) Finding out my 'Long-Lost-Great-Step-Uncle-Twice-Removed' has passed and left me $25,000.00.
13.) A broken or smashed 'Garden Gnome' (...gnomes are evil, my friends!)
