I Simply Remember My Favorite Things.....

And then I don't feel so bad.

I really need this today. I have been dealing with a screaming, whining, vomiting, pooping little boy for almost SEVEN days! I didn't know kids could be this sick for this long. It's seriously worse than when he was an infant-he gets up every two hours to eat and then vomits half that up. Needless to say, I am running on very little sleep and I am getting a little grumpy. So I am going to tell you about 25 things that I love, rather than complain some more about my life :)

  • Zak-he's been so great with Jakson this week- getting up in the middle of the night, taking over when he gets home from work, having patience when I have none. Also his witty although sometimes dorky remarks-he makes me laugh!
  • Granola cereal
  • Garage Sales with Zak on a Sat. morning
  • Going on walks with my family
  • Scrapbooking
  • Glen Beck (talk radio)
  • Dashboard Confessional-especially "A Mark, a Mission, a Brand, a Scar" album
  • Jakson's infrequent hugs
  • Starting a good book
  • Project Runway, the Office, and American Idol-I have to admit I also enjoy "The Real Housewives of Orange County" on BRAVO :)-guilty pleasure
  • Talking to my mom and dad on the phone
  • Organized rooms-remember the obsession with the label maker?
  • Finding really cute boys clothes
  • Jakson's smile-the one where his eyes squint shut
  • Checking the mail-it's just so exciting!-you never know what you're going to get
  • going on a date-or a weekend (I love Anniversary Inn)
  • the Library!
  • Fetticuni Alfredo and Mahkni Chicken (Indian food)
  • Taking pictures
  • IKEA-just window shopping there is fun
  • quiet mornings (and dark-I don't like light in the morning-weird, huh?)
  • having a trip to look forward to
  • front loading washer and dryer
  • going to concerts-especially when it is all "General Admission"
  • swing dancing
I feel better now.

sorry jak has been so sick and for so long. he's so young to get such a violent stomach flu. make sure he doesn't get dehydrated. i had to take rylee to the ER once because her flu was so bad that she needed on IV. glad you have some favorite things to keep you sane.
