a happy list.

As I've mentioned (pretty frequently, I know), life is a little crazy right now. You know those times in life when you  say to yourself, "If I could just make it to Wednesday?" Or "If I could just make it to Friday?" Yep. That's me right about now. I'm not trying to wish the week away, but I've got a group project on Wednesday that I really can't wait to be finished with, and Friday... well, Friday is Friday. So, to help myself enjoy the moment, a happy list.

- After a series of tweets and messages, last week's blog post got a shout-out on Makeunder My Life. I may have wet my pants a little. Makeunder My Life is one of the first blogs I ever followed, so to be included on her blog line-up was a huge compliment. Definitely made my Monday a little brighter.

- New blog followers. Hello, new-to-me readers! I'm thrilled you're along for the ride!

- One of my very best and dearest friends is coming into town for the weekend, and her timing couldn't be more perfect. I can't wait to catch up, even if it's just over coffee.

- I have a feeling some of my "prizes" may be coming this week, which means two happy things: snail mail and pretty things to wear.

- The girls' Bible class that I prayed and cried over is going so. well. I don't want to jinx it, but really: It's all going better than I ever imagined. And I am so very grateful.

- A major project for one of my classes will be complete after tomorrow. I'm thinking I'll be able to breathe a little easier when it's off my list for good. Fingers crossed.

- There's finally a little chill in the air. Could fall have come early to Florida? I'm hoping so.

- I managed to finish Cold Tangerines last week, and can I just say: I love Shauna Niequist. These essays had me rolling on the floor, crying into my pillow, and making a mental list of what I need to be doing to enjoy my simple life. I'll do a recap in my monthly book reviews, but basically: Read it. I think you'll like it.

I'm feeling more like Pollyanna already! Happy Tuesday!

Congratulations! Very cool, but shouldn't that be Pollyannie? Glad you're almost through with your project, hang in there.
