1- that lance is a better mood today, we had some problems yesterday and it wasn't a good day, he was at the end of my patience, he was very whiny and yelled a lot, but today he has been so good, not defiant, playing by himself, not as demanding (though he can't talk yet, he can be pretty darn demanding, leading me everywhere)
2- for the five dollar gift certificates I get for having a kroger credit card, my bill went from 26 dollars to 21, yeah!
3- for walks in the snow, yesterday we had cabin fever so I put lance in the stroller and bundled him up and went for a walk, it began to snow on our walk and it was nice to enjoy being outside and the snow (the snow never accumulated, but it was still pretty)
4- for dishwashers, i have been putting off cleaning the kitchen because my hands are so chapped that they hurt, but it could be worse, if we didn't have a dishwasher I would have to wash everything by hand and then I would really have chapped hands, i love my dishwasher and I try and only buy kitchen stuff that can go in the dishwasher
5- Jeff not working his morning job- because he doesn't have to get up, i have been able to have an hour quiet time every morning which really has helped me these last couple of weeks
