Harry Potter. I know that there are a whole lot of people out there who think the books are poorly written, or full of evil, or just plain silly. But you know what? For me? They’re fun. I love that when I’m reading them, I believe that the world is magical. I love that Cooper and Alex are starting to get into them. I love that my mom is coming up to spend the night so Aaron and I can finally go see Half-Blood Prince. Woohoo!
Health. So I was just diagnosed with Polymorphic Light Eruption, which is pretty much just a fancy way of saying that I’m allergic to the sun. Which really kinds of sucks. For the rest of my life, I have to stay out of it when I can, and slather on the SPF 85 when I can’t avoid it. It means that when I do break out in the totally itchy, gross-looking rash, I have to treat it with some lovely-smelling steroid lotion. Totally hot, I know. But even then… I am relatively healthy. My family is relatively healthy. And when we do get sick, we have the luxery of going to a doctor or a hospital and getting better.
Home. There’s no place like it. And even though the one I’m creating is far from perfect (see “Good Enough”), it’s ours. It’s where I sleep the best. It’s where all my stuff is. It’s where my whole world is.
Healthy Choice Premium Fudge Bars. Where have they been all my life? And for any of you Weight Watcher aficionados, they’re only one point! (Merci beaucoup, Evonne.)
Heat. It’s hard to appreciate it when it’s 95 degrees outside, but ask me again in February, and I promise, I’ll be very grateful for central heat.
Half-Price drinks at Sonic. Every Tuesday and Thursday, we pick up a round to drink during swimming lessons. And if we make it to the drive-through before 11am, they’re 50% off. Did I mention they have Diet Dr. Pepper? Heaven.
Incredible! I can’t believe ‘H’ was so hard! I bet ‘I‘ will cooperate and be inordinately and inexplicably easy.
