I needed to make a list today, so I thought I’d post it.
And if you need a little happiness boost, you can join me in the comments.
1. DST starts a week from Saturday.
I don’t enjoy the hour switch in and of itself, but I really, really love having an hour more of daylight on the later end of the day.
In a little over a week, the sun will not set until around 7:00 pm and that makes me feel like spring and summer are well on their way, even though it’s still cold.
2. I opened a new pack of coffee filters.
You know how they get sort of stretched out after a while? And how hard those stretched-out filters are to fit into the coffee maker?
I had completely forgotten how tidily they fit when they are new out of the package!
(in case you missed it: yep, I started drinking coffee.)
3. Sonia’s knees are gonna be ok.
She’s had intermittent knee pain for a while, so I took her to see an orthopedist.
Happily, we found out there is nothing structurally wrong with her knees; she’s just a little too flexible (which can cause alignment issues) and she needs stronger quad muscles (which help with alignment issues.).
So, PT it is for her.
(I had knee pain at her age and ended up having to be on crutches for three months, followed by surgery. So I am very happy that PT is all she needs! Phew.)
4. Sonia’s birthday is this weekend.
This lil’ peanut is going to be 15! So some birthday fun is coming up.
5. It’s sunny here today.
If there’s light pouring into my windows, the world seems much more full of hope and happiness.
I can mange to be grateful when it’s cloudy, yes, but it’s just a whole lot easier to feel perky when the sun shines.
