Let's Get Real Monday

I followed the "Let's Get Real" posts about spring cleaning a couple weeks ago, but did not post my own. This time I decided to join in the fun. "Let's Get Real Monday" is kindly hosted by Randi at I Have To Say.

This week's theme: My Favorite Things. I thought about many options. My favorite things about being a stay-at-home mom; favorite books; favorite corners of my home. But, perhaps in an effort to encourage myself, I decided to post My Favorite Things About Having A Cold (which I do). Here they are, in no particular order:

  • Chicken soup
  • Really soft Kleenex
  • When my husband rushes in the door after work and shouts up the stairs, "I'm here to take care of you!"
  • How good it feels to rest my head against the back of the sofa
  • How wonderful the cool air felt on my face when I went outside to get the mail
  • How wonderful the warm air felt when I went back inside
  • Giving myself permission to not do everything on my pre-cold to-do list

What the heck, I'll do two. Here are My Favorite Things That I Appreciate More When I Have A Cold:

  • A well-behaved child
  • Strong, sweet, hot tea
  • Chocolate
  • My sofa
  • Socks
  • The Internet
  • The DVD player
  • The remote control.

You should play along! C'mon, everybody's doing it! :)

Your hubby call when he gets home is cute!

I hope you are on the mend and I am glad that you are still finding things to be thankful for when you are sick!

What a creative list! I always notice how much I appreciate the little things of life when I'm sick and can't enjoy them as much. XO, Jill
