As Time Flies

Short and Sweet for The Girl's Feel Good Friday.  Not short and sweet because I'm economical with my words (just ask my husband) but because I haven't had more than 5 minutes of time to myself lately.

5 things that made me smile this week?

  1. My van ride home from Michigan.  Actually I didn't just smile,  I laughed out loud at my 18 year old.  Poor thing, throwing up in front of non-family members while your mother laughs at you.
  2. My flower vase full of flowering mint and zinnia from my garden.  (What is the plural of zinnia, because I definitely have plural zinnia this year?)  Flowers always make me smile; flowers I've grown from seed make me practically maniacally happy.
  3. Watching my children swim at night, under a crescent moon, while chatting with friends.
  4. Watching my teens play a game of night-ultimate frisbee (with a light up frisbee)  in a pitch black field with their friends wearing glow stick necklaces and bracelets to mark teams.  It looked surreal.  
  5. Looking back over our month with our visitor from Switzerland.  I took her to the airport this morning with a genuine sense of sadness.  How could a month already be over?

I feel totally the same about #2. I like the idea of maniacal happiness.

The one about your kids swimming at night while chatting with your friends sounds lovely... Hayden is doing swimming lessons right now. One of his friends is in the same class with him and I am friends with his mom. I have thoroughly enjoyed chatting with her during the lesson. It has been super!

With the exception of your visitor leaving and the puking, it sounds like a great week.
