Five things that made me happy today:

1. A little housecleaning this morning. Dusting here. Mopping the floor there. OK. That’s enough.

2. Sometimes when the cats are ready for bed before me, they sit quietly a few feet away and send me mental messages that it’s bedtime. When they’re not ready, they’re busy taking a nap in a nearby chair.

3.Ruby back at Mathnasium tonight after a week off. She’s always excited now when she comes home after class.

4. While Ruby was in class, I walked down a few doors and ordered a fresh pizza. It smelled up the car and tasted pretty good when we got home!

5. Max and I went to the bank to discover our new user names and passwords since the bank has changed ownership. The security questions were laughable. They were made for someone in their first year of college. The street my best friend lived on as a child? My oldest cousin’s nickname? The name of my favorite teacher my first year in high school? [Mrs Japp. Math. Astonishing.] Where was I first kissed? Really?

I’d love to hear what made you happy today.

Keep going.
