Besides the obvious of spending time with family and my parents ...specifically my DAD who turned 70!!
And.... getting to surprise him with 7 gifts (each with 10 items in them) to equal 70 items....duh!?
And.....opening the cabin for the first time which was a complete success.
And.....barely eating any sweets (totally amazing for me b/c my mom has a ton of sweets around the house!)
And.....staying at a hotel (and) going out to eat which was all paid for by the birthday boy and mom!

(And me only) I have never felt PERSONAL happiness/satisfaction over some thing I did and DID ALONE like I felt that morning after that run!! Truly every thing inside me was smiling!
The temperature was perfect, the body felt good, my tunes were pumping me up and I was ecstatic for hours.
Some times doing some thing for your self isn't such a bad thing after all. ;-) What have you done for yourself lately?
Up: I think I finally found an ice cream my kids won't like...Java Chunk! It tastes like coffee with chocolate chunks...Yum to me but ...
When its beautiful outside I feel like moving…walking,running,cleaning, sweeping, vacuuming (out my vehicle) painting, washing windows etc…...
That is I am officially 10 days in being 48 and YES, I have to say it is still going great! ha! (I guess the only way it wouldn't be go...
I will be hanging out with this angel. Chilling in my A/C keeping all the animals company .... and having a "toast" ...
