Reasons to smile

I guess not everyone needs to find a reason, but... What made you smile and/or laugh today?

My first LOL of the day was caused by this LOLdog.

I went to the uniform laundry room at work yesterday, to ask if I could try on a size smaller in my trousers. And they fit! The laundry lady asked me if I needed a new shirt, too, so I tried the next size down in that, too. And it fit! Wow. My pants had been slipping down my hips a little for weeks, but last week they got ridiculously slippy. So happy to have confirmation that my body's changing shape/size a little. :iloveyou:

Humming along to the occasional good song at work... it's amazing how much it can lift my mood. ;)b

Overhearing customers' reactions when they can't decide whether flowers are real or not. It's hilarious either way - when they think fake are real, or real are fake. ;D

My reason to smile is that the Food Lion nearby me is closing down and their entire store is 50% off tomorrow morning... including dozens of untouched delights such as Boca nuggets, Amy's meals, sweet potato fries, dressings and whole grains and even vegan shampoos and conditioners... I am going to break the bank tomorrow. :D

That reminds me of something I saw on pinterest.  A person had two clear glass vases and filled one with those colored glass beads people used to place in vases - a bead per 1/4 pound.  For each quarter pound, she'd transfer a bead to the other vase.

Kind of like this:

What is this pinterest? Someone in my family is really into it.

I smile because I'm really enjoying the Deftones screaming in my ears right now. Good stuff.

I'm still happily mellowed out from a late afternoon at the beach yesterday and my arthritis flare up is waning.  Beach time is the best medicine.

I think thats pretty cool in all honesty :D it wouldn't be something I would do but for some people I could see that being a big motivator!
I use my wii-fit every morning to weigh myself, my big motivator will be when it stops calling me obese and tells me im just overweight LOL yeah that sounded a lot less pathetic in my head  :-[ :o :-D :-D

I went to the Pinterest page just to see and they had a comment on "olive oil as a facewash."
The lady who has cured my excema (how do you spell that, anyway? No matter what I do it looks wrong) has me wash my face with bitter chamomile tea twice a day, and at night I beat a teaspoon of olive oil with 4 drops of water to make an emulsion. This is my night-cream.
It works.

Went for the 3rd physio session today and it is a LOT less painful. Still hurts, yeah, but I can really notice the difference. Maybe I can stop eating ibuprofen like breath mints. We've gone from uberpainful to a localised feeling that someone stabbed me in the shoulder.

During my flight to Las Vegas yesterday, I had a fairly decent conversation with the guy next to me.

During the flight to Portland, the beautiful flight attendant liked my tattoo.

Once in Portland, while on the tram, a very cute woman and I talked a bit. 

Last night, I had a three text seperate conversations going on with jessimaka33, IdrilAsphodel, and intheend.

I went out drinking with my roommates/friends. They told me about the hell they endured while I was gone. They really were spoiled with me as a roommate.

Annnnnnnnd lastly (but certainly not the last of the greatness)..

The weather is predicted to be sunny for the next few days annnnnd I'M IN PORTLAND!!!!!!!!!

I'm starting to again feel like JFM. Let's hope it'll last! :)
