Joy #1. I'm coming out of my funk and actually want to be around my kids again
Joy #2. We're going to see the band the Afternaps with some friends this afternoon
Joy #3. I donated about 200 books to the kids' school a few days ago and this morning the director told me that each teacher took a lot their classroom and those that were left were taken by the janitor for his grandson and that they all found loving homes.
Joy #4. I am wearing jeans I haven't worn in 2 months today and they are tighter than they were the last time I had them on. There is NO joy in that but it didn't ruin my day and in that I find joy.
Joy #5. The American Idol finale is on tonight. It was 6 years ago that I was at the finale to see Fantasia win. I love the finales because I know what it's like to be there; see the celebrities, feel the confetti fall all around you and feel the heat from the fireworks. I think Lee has it in the bag, BTW.
Joy #6. The kids were kind to each other this morning. There was no fighting or arguing or unkind words spoken. There was laughter. Here is one moment I caught of Drew and Lauren playing:
What is your Wednesday joy??
