Tears of Joy

Miss 11 left for camp this morning.  Her first camp!  I didn't know whether to be excited for her or be worried about her.  She was so excited I didn't think the camp was going to live up to her expectations but she rang after dinner and she said its even better than she thought it would be so I am so glad she is having a good time even though I already miss her like crazy!  It is so weird to not have her in the room next to me. Just another sign of how quickly they are growing up :(

Happy List
7.  Horses
8.  Alone time
9.  My kids growing up
10.  Crinkle cut hot chips
11.  Kiefer Sutherland

Hate List
8.  Headaches
9.  Roadworks
10.  Leaving your cash and cards at home when you've just travelled a great distance and need them
11. Broken fingernails

Now we're even!


  1. Oh, I hate leaving home without money or cards. Just happened yesterday. I was in the checkout line, too. AGH!

  2. I have a lot of catching up to do around the blogosphere, but I just wanted to pop in and let you know that I LOVE your Happy/Hate List idea - what a great way to keep life in perspective! Hopefully the good will start outweighing the bad someday soon? =)

  3. I don't like headaches and roadworks either! This is a cute idea. I used to keep a gratitude journal where I forced myself to write 10 things I was grateful for at the end of each night. It has been years since I wrote in that journal. I may need to pick it back up!
