Day 6 Thursday Thirteen #18 -- I Smile Because

This has been a long week. I could grinch about a lot of things, but I'm trying to be more positive about the things going on in my life. Instead of the thirteen things that are out of whack at the moment, I decided to find thirteen things I've had to smile about.

1. With the way my hair is cut now it is hard to tell a good hair day from a bad hair day, so I call them all good hair days.

2. I'm going to be fingerprinted tomorrow. A new thing for all public school personnel. Now if anything happens to me I can be identified by my fingerprints on record with the state.

3. The price of gas was down to $2.10.9 last Sunday. Wha-whoooo cheap gas!

4. The election is over and there will be no more political ads for a while anyway.

5. Although I haven't lost any more weight, I haven't gained any either.

6. We have had very pleasant weather the past few days. Cool mornings and warm afternoons. That means the kids get to play outside everyday.

7. I've only had to cook one night this week. (Which could explain why I'm not loosing weight.)

8. A student who was a wee bit of a pain to work with moved last Friday. Things are quiter without said student.

9. I got a picture of grandchildren, A and B, playing in a pile of leaves outside the polling place yesterday via my cell phone.

10. The water bill and electric bills were both down a little bit.

11. Hubby put the dishes away out of the dishwasher and then reloaded it. (I got a good one in him.)

12. I enjoyed going over to friends house for dessert last evening. She makes wonderful German chocolate pie.

13. I live in the greatest country in the world!
