You know it's been a rough few days...

when you get excited about:

* watching "Say Yes to The Dress" with your daughter on a Friday night and discussing the merits of various wedding dress styles

* buying therapeutic nail polish (to keep your fingernails from peeling and cracking) and painting your nails with clear polish

* taking the dog on a walk out on the front lawn

* making yourself toast and coffee for breakfast

* tasting the toast and coffee

* carrying a laundry basket down to the laundry room and not feeling like that was a full workout

* dancing to a few songs from your favorite workout class in your pajamas

* taking a long, hot shower and washing your head (no hair left, just my head...)

* cutting images out of travel magazines and pasting them into a new journal

* writing in your journal about anything and everything but kanswer

* walking through Trader Joe's, sampling, and then buying superfruits dipped in dark chocolate (even though you don't like dark chocolate but at least you can taste it)

* buying a song on iTunes after a friend posted a video link to it on your facebook timeline
(Muchas gracias, Manolo. Me encanta.)

Smile / God Has Smiled On Me

* being able to come up with a list of simple things that are making you smile after a rather rough few days

* knowing that this list will get longer over the days to come
