Full of Grace

  • That it was warm enough to open the windows wide after everyone in our household was sick with colds and a stomach bug. Fresh air does wonders.

  • Getting major “super cool mom” points for getting tickets to see Adele in concert. I was one of those who waited in the 45 minute queue and got lucky.  My daughters now think I'm amazing.  It won’t last long, but I’ll bask in it for a little while.

  • The most strenuous thing I did on Sunday was to pick up a phone to order pizza.

  • Celebrating another Beaner birthday together.  It was a little difficult as it was her first birthday in many years without a boyfriend but there’s nothing like a fine Italian dinner and a bottle of wine to soothe the rough edges.

  • Working a Make A Wish booth for a couple of hours and having a parent of a former wish receiver stop to say thank you. Her son got his wish and died a year later at 9 years old.  It made me remember that there is nothing I am more thankful for than the health of my children.


  1. I also think you are a super cool Mom for getting tickets for your daughters to see Adele.

  2. Thanks for the uplift, 8. A good reminder that the simple things really are the best.

    Oh, and those Adele tickets? Both Traci and Zoe waited on the phone for however long and neither got tickets. Darn it! We were all going to go together...

    1. I did it online and now I'm kicking myself that I didn't order more than 4 tickets. Seats in the section we got are now going for $900+! Of course if my daughters piss me off between now and then, you and Zoe might be in : )

  3. Love this list - it's just so full of happy!

  4. I love the Make a Wish part. Such a lovely thing to do.

    Congrats on winning the Adele lottery. Wow! What a fun show that would be to see.

  5. good score on the tickets. I am just not that cool...
    I have no clue what is going on with this weather - I can wear shorts on Christmas day... Just means a whole lot of muddy paws...
