10 Things That Made Me Happy This Week (Vol. 20)

This week turned out much, much better than I thought it would given my difficulty adjusting to the spring time change.  In addition to my easier than normal transition to EDT, here are 10 more things that made me happy this week:

Date night with R to see Cabaret.

It was sunny and 80F degrees on Tuesday.  

My St. Patrick's Day t-shirt. It reminds me of my trip to the windy city a few years ago on St. Patrick's Day to see the Chicago River turned green.

Even though this didn't happen this week, I'm going to include it anyway. On Monday, March 7, I met author Caroline Kepnes, author of YOU and Hidden Bodies.

The internet at work is working smoothly again. (Fingers crossed it stays that way!) The previous 3 weeks have been super frustrating when I wasn't able to do things that are an essential part of my job - such as IEP writing, because I couldn't access the IEP documents online.

A hilarious after the kids had left chat with my roommate and school custodian.  I laughed so hard that I cried!

Listening to The Help by Kathryn Stockett.  This audiobook has been in my Audible library for over 3 years, but for whatever reason, I just never got around to listening to it.  It's really good so far.

Kristin's "More Screenshots From My iPad" blog post on Thursday.

Spending some time with this sweet, but stinky gal who desperately needs a bath.


Hoping this finds you well!  Thanks for stopping by.  Have a terrific weekend!


  1. It sounds like you have had a great week! I love the idea of the Chicago River turning green on St Patrick's Day! Your dog is gorgeous and laughing with friends is the best tonic of all. Have a lovely weekend xx

    1. It actually turned out a LOT better than I thought it would. It started out rough, due the time change, but rebounded rather well. The Chicago River is an amazing sight to see when it is turned green! Never in a million years would I have believed that it would be such a vivid, shamrock green, but it is! When the powdered dye goes into the river, it is a bright orange. As it is churned up by the boats zipping back and forth, it turns green. It was really cool to see. Thank you for the compliment about my dog. Have a great weekend, too!

  2. I wouldn't choose Cabaret as date night entertainment, but to each her own I suppose.

    Cool shirt.

    The first time I saw a commercial for The Help (the movie), I didn't know it was a period piece. So I thought the people making the movie were racist.

    Cute dog, but I doubt she'll bathe herself.

    1. My husband and I have season tickets, so we see all the touring shows that come through town. Cabaret was interesting. I'm glad I saw it, but I have no desire to see it again. Thank you. No, Miss Thing, despite her cuteness, will not bathe herself. It was be wonderful if she could.

  3. oh, love your st paddy's tee! i've heard really good things about the audiobook version of the help. and so cool you met Caroline Kepnes!

    1. Thank you! The audiobook is really, really good. Great narrators (one of which is Octavia Spencer who played Minnie in the movie version)!

  4. I had a rough Monday, tired as all hell and then fine the rest of the week, thank goodness.
    I just love your dog and those eyes. They make me melt. :) Have a great weekend love.
