1- bright sunny Sunday, not overly hot, while the mean cheese was playing on the swingset my bubs and I played catch, complete with baseball and mitts....now this does not seem like a big deal to most people but for me, well it was huge. I am not a tom boy, not athletic at all, in fact usually doing most "sports" related things brings back horrible memories of being bullied when I was a kid in gym class. I do love baseball though, so this was wonderful, the sound of the ball being caught in the mitt, well it was like magic. In fact I was not bad at the whole "hustle and catch" thing, barely missing. My bubs was impressed that I was not just a complete bumble-lard out there. Now I have dreams that I missed my calling in life, that I should somehow be a baseball woman...do they even have those
2- Finally seeing Juno, we went last night to the "dollar theater" a couple miles from us...I loved it, though I was distracted by seeing the book microphones in so many of the shots, was this because I saw it in the dollar theater?? Did we have some non edited version of the movie, was this on purpose....it did not bug me as much as the very vocal crowd in front of us screaming about it every time they were seen. Also the fact that this same group of people kept saying how it was not nearly as good as "Superbad", as if they were supposed to be compared.
3- Scribble feeling better and being really cuddly ever since he has been sick and had to be taken care of, now he is s total love bug...Charles Shultz had it right when he said "happiness is a warm puppy"
4- one of my best friends was "diagnosed" with MS several weeks ago...now there was something in her that would not settle with that, she got second, third and fourth opinions on this...now she has received news that she may not have MS....now this is a chance, but it is hope, so I guess #4 on this list should just read, HOPE.
5- going to my favorite Indian Newsstand and finding gems....I love the people that run the place, the conversations I overhear while in there are the reason I love going, there is nothing like hillbillies buying $100 in lottery tickets and trying to talk football with a Buddhist...I dare you to listen to a convo like that and not smile.
