Some things I am thinking about today...

Sad stuff:

So sad that one of our Bengals, Chris Henry, died today. I was sincerely hoping he was on his way to a solid recovery. I am praying for his family which includes three small children. What a tragic loss of someone who was trying to turn his life around. Life is precious and fragile.

Silly stuff:

Full plastic bottles of Ragu spaghetti sauce do not bounce, but they do make pretty splatter paint picures on the wall if you drop them.

I need to paint my nails more often. I did last night for my husband's work holiday party. My kids are totally facinated and can't stop looking at them. I sort of like them too, my poor hands get all dried and cracked in the winter so it is kind of shocking to see them not covered in band aids. They are however, already chipped from making cupcakes and wrapping presents for hubby's work friends. Oh well.

Nice stuff:

I always give my mailman goodies at Christmas. He is so sweet and he seems to really enjoy his job I have seen him at the grocery before and he said, "I know you, you are _____" and he rattled off my address. Like he knew me based on my house, so cute. Anyway, I gave him his treats early since I had them made and today he was delivering a huge box to us and he was just gushing about the treats. Saying how good they were, what a nice surprise, etc. Giving really does make me feel better. Tomorrow I am taking some to the dry cleaners, the ladies that work there love my kids and they truly go above and beyond to get Paul's stuff clean. Believe me, that is quite a challenge most days so I am excited to give them some sweets too.

My hubby sent me this altered photo from his I-phone today. How sweet he is to take time out of his busy day to send me a little something. Hey, how is it that he has time to do that but I am running around like a maniac!
