Manic Mom's Mental Myriads

Stop by and have a laugh from Manic Mom's Mental Myriads on Motherhood, and some other stuff too, but mostly motherhood, wifehood, thoughts on writing, etc. No politics will be discussed here or geography, and I will not be solving any mathematical equations. Just some BS on whatever I feel like blogging on...

The Simple, Good Things

Music that makes you want to walk faster

A cold bottle of water on a steamy day

Chewing gum that never loses its flavor and you can crack it really loudly

Having your son tell you that you are the most beautiful girl in the world

Feeling like you are doing something good for your body/health every day

Getting up at 2 a.m. to check the children and sneaking into their rooms, and knowing you are so extremely blessed to have the little munchkins who are not so little any more


Sharing a passion with others

Meeting friends for grandeicednonfatsugarfreevanillalattes

Taking the kids to the pool

Date nights with hubby that go so well they remind you why you got married in the first place -- cuz you have fun together and you LIKE being together

Hating your parents' dog but secretly liking the fact that she wound up sleeping in your bed, under the sheets, flushed right against your legs the whole time they were here


Boston cream pie light yogurt with low-fat granola and a diet pepsi for breakfast

Great decorating finds (I've been on a roll!)

Digital cameras so you can take goofy pictures of close-ups of nostrils, eyeballs, tonsils


A Starbucks in Target

Barnes & Nobles

Ditto what I said after I said Target


Money to buy books

Sleeping in and stretching sideways across the bed

Having someone pass by you and you say, "Have a good day," and they smile and say "You too!" and you already know you are having one

Waking up to find a new screen saver on your computer that says your husband loves you, loves your kids

What are some of the simple, good things in your life? I hope you have many!

Silence's beauty if often overlooked by people, in general. I love a good half hour of peace and quiet.

Amen sister! Add a glass of wine and a hammock and it's all good!

Having the quiet time or ability to drown out enough noise to read a book...even better a really good book!

The smiles children use to melt your heart and lets you know they love you.

A great dream...whew

text messaging...great for little love notes during the day.
