Finding the Joy Sunday! (Oct)

Totally stealing from AmyD ( at Ignore Me Its Easier).
Also totally posting this like 3 days late (yes it is Sunday!)

This week:

* Hours on progress being made on my easy peasy - but pretty swap scarf

* Hours or progress made on our school work.

* Finding 2nd hand bookstores with awesome books in awesome shape, and finding the book I was looking for.

* Big box bookstores, that have what I'm looking for on the shelf that allows me to use my gift card from a couple months ago. (and nice tellers that remind me since I'm buying homeschool books I should bring in my Letter of Intent and get discount cards - and maybe the manager will be nice tomorrow and credit me the discount even though I don't have the card yet! LOL!)

* Finally turning in our Dollies for Haiti to our Girl Scout Council - and M finally finishing hers so we could turn them in!

* M loving her homemade dolly for Haiti and wanting to make some more! :)

* Soccer in the Rain, and a dry car to sit in at the edge of the field! LOL!

* Family walks in the rain, and the need for new raincoats.

* Planning Christmas Vacation having just arrived back from Fall Vacation - a real Christmas vacation - like over Christmas! LOL!

* Hours of decluttering - and finally seeing a difference! :)

Where are you finding JOY this week?

I am just browsing blogs seeing as how I just started the whole blogging thing. I find your blog inspirational. Many times we forget that there are things in every day life that are joyful and we focus on the bad things so we can complain about them. Your blog is refreshing!

thanks mamajen. I get my inspiration from my blogging friends and those IRL (in real life!) and from my kids. I've had my share of hard times, and my share of good and I'm learning to find the joy in a week that may have been gawd awful! LOL! By finding the little things that make me smile. I've written my fair share of down and grumpy and downright fractious blog-posts - but I'm learning to take the good with the bad.

I homeschool my girls - so we're always in each other's corner, that can be hard at times or it can be a joy... so finding those moments is important sometimes, and sometimes just find 10 things that made me smile in a week - can spin it from bad to good! :)
