Just Keep Smiling

I'm in a list mood today, mkay?  No reason for this post to be in a list form, but sometimes a girl just needs a list.

1.In my effort to stay above the drowning force of laundry, I sometimes forget to check pockets.  It's pretty normal for me to find {very clean} loose change, Lego men, and the occasional lip balm.  This week I found a new item as I was pulling wet laundry from the washer.
 Clean string cheese.  
Just keep smiling.

2. I have a deadline fast approaching that I am getting very nervous about.  It has to do with running shoes and a little road trip.  Being off the treadmill for a week really put me behind schedule, and a little jiggle to my wiggle.

3.My daughter turned 10 over the weekend.  On the eve of her birthday she came to me sobbing.  I don't want to turn ten tomorrow.  Hiccup.  I want to stay a little girrrrrrlllll.
Just keep smiling.  Me too, baby.  Me too.

4. Ever have a moment that you could kick yourself for not having your camera ready?  That happened this week as I was driving.  I had to pull off onto the shoulder so that a log truck could pass me.... with a full sized trampoline (with net attached) resting atop the logs.  One man was holding onto the trampoline so it wouldn't "fall off."  Ya might be a redneck....
Just keep smiling.

5. We lose stuff round here sometimes.  Overall, we are a pretty organized family thanks to my man, but sometimes we just can't find stuff.  Yesterday I discovered why I can't find the obvious sometimes:
Seriously.  A boot in the freezer.
Just keep smiling!

Laughing hard over here! First the cheese stick got me...but the boot brought it on home!

All I can say is, I'm glad there's more than one house that is all smiles. :)

I really needed this...many thanks.

That boot looks like it's on display! I think you'll need to share the story behind that one!

So sweet about M wanting to stay a little girl. I remember I felt the same way and sometimes still feel like it.
Post gave me a smile!
