10 Things Tuesday - Things that cheer me up

So I am having a kinda poopy day.... well not really kind of, a full on poopy day. And so I did my best to cheer myself up and thought I would share 10 things that usually help me do that (and truthfully, I also asked some other friends to do the same so it might rub off on me too!)
So... here are my 10 things....

1. Glee -
yep, just call me a Gleek. It can still be sad sometimes... but it is a show that doesn't make me think too hard and often makes me sing along... So thanks to the wonderful writers who come up with crazy lines like "You wear more vests than the cast of Blossom" or "I don't brush my teeth. I rinse my mouth out with soda after I eat. I was pretty sure Dr Pepper was a dentist" ...

2. Reminiscing -
is there anything better?? Tomorrow is my friend Alissa's 10th anniversary so tonight, we chatted on the phone about how crazy it all was - the phone call on Monday night in which she asked myself and the roommate at the time which days we were off... when it was discovered we were both off on a Friday, a Friday the wedding was to take place. The crazy stagette where we discovered why Alissa really shouldn't drink (but what a truly hilarious discovery it was), the forgetting of the wedding dress clear across town and my insane drive to retrieve said dress, the rushing of the ceremony so that we could watch the very first ever Big Brother finale.... ahhhhhhhhh good times they were. Thanks for the chat dear friend :)

3. Spiced Pumpkin Lattes -
thank you Starbucks for the comfort of fall in a drink. Non fat, half sweet, extra hot if you please!

4. Favourite Photos -
There is nothing better than a favourite photo. I often look back through old files at my old pictures and they always seem to put a smile on my face. It may not be the perfect photo, it might even be blurry, but they always seems to cheer me up. So thanks to the brilliant person who invented digital cameras and made it that much easier for me look back at a whole wack of photos! This is a favourite from last week :)

5. Books -
whether it be a new book for me (just started The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo last night) or my most favourite...snuggling with my kids and reading their favourite (current fave is There's a Dragon Downstairs) reading just makes me forget my troubles and takes me to another world. I took a break from reading for a while and it feels good to be back so thank you to the many talented authors who can do that.

6. Cheese -
cheese is my comfort food. Hot, gooey, melted yummy cheese. I was smart and avoided the fridge downstairs tonight but I am not making any promises for tomorrow! Thank you to all the lovely cows who make cheese!

7. Bubble Baths -
take me away Calgon. Okay, so I have never used Calgon, but do have to say that my kids bubblegum/strawberry/fruit punch/whatever is sitting on the shelf works just lovely!! One day, I will have my own bubble bath but for now theirs does the trick just fine! Thank you kids for sharing so nicely! (PS did you notice the names of these?? How cool are they?)

8. Pajama Pants -
I don't ever wear them to bed or I would probably die from over heating but when I am having a poopy day, there is nothing better than putting them on and just being cozy. I am currently sitting in a lovely pair of penguin flannel jammy pants that Cheryl surprised me with on one of my trips to New Brunswick and they are C.O.M.F.Y.... and penguins always put a smile on my face! So thanks to Cheryl for my awesome jammies! (PS, while these are cool, the ones that Cheryl made totally outdo these!)

9. My Kids -
even though they can drive me crazy... and today one of them came home with the first ever notice from the Principal about misbehaving... my kids cheer me up. Their snuggles can melt away my blues and their kisses can make my heart swell with love. Thank you to God for 3 amazing blessings in my life. (and this pic is about 2 years old but one of my faves!)

10. Did you see yesterday's post? Because that song just does it for me. And so thanks to Meg for finding the file and sharing it with me - you rock!!!!!!!!! Just in case, here it is again for you!
