I realize the past few days of posts have been chock full of meme’s and listy goodness, but this week has seriously ROBBED me of any energy and/or time. I am so darn ready for a weekend, it’s insane. In fact, I’m at work early in hopes of completing all of my grading, so that this weekend can be work-free! Of course, blogging doesn’t get my papers graded. Oops.
Anyways, here’s what I’m thankful for this week:
—Emails, tweets, and snail mail from dear friends and new friends. I really love those little contacts during the week! They make my day.
—I went through a Smith’s phase a few years ago, but the (500) Days Of Summer soundtrack has reminded me how much I LOVE The Smith’s. And Morrissey, who (sorry, Other Smith’s) is basically the point of The Smiths.
—A really great Back To School night last night with grateful, positive parents.
—My sweet mom calling me yesterday to ask if I’d purchased a certain cookbook yet and then telling me she had it in her cart to buy for me! I was soooo delighted—my mom is always the best, but these little things make my day.
—Grabbing dinner and sitting outside Whole Foods with Andrew on Wednesday night–it was such a nice break in the middle of the week.
—Feeling really positive and excited about some things I have planned to teach.
—Looking forward to seeing two of my best friends in the whole world this weekend! I’m soooo looking forward to brunch and girl talk with two of the gals who know me best.
What made your week great? What are you looking forward to this weekend?
