It’s all about the little things, you know what I mean? A generally blah day, but the little things turn it around. For example, Friday. It was my day off work, so I figured I should run outside. That “feels like 7 degrees” on my weather app was not enticing me one bit. But then, I saw this on my Starbucks app… really? Molten Chocolate?? And I had my iPod all full of new and interesting podcasts… that was all the motivation I needed to get my butt outside.
Once I got to the park, I was not thrilled to actually get outside and run. In fact, my fingers were freezing so bad from taking a couple of pictures that I had to circle back to my car and stick a pair of mittens on top of my running gloves. But once I did… heaven!!!
Luckily my day turned around when I stopped at Kroger for my Starbucks drink. I found this kickass bouquet marked down to only $4.99!! Score!
Then I stopped at Rite Aid to pick up some Valentine treats for my sweethearts and found out I had $20 in rewards awaiting me, so this was free!!
Next, when I got the mail, I got all of these magazines!!! I will admit it – I’m kind of a magazine hoarder, but I love magazines and I have great hopes to read them all. And best of all, those are all free subscriptions due to rewards from airline miles and answering surveys.
Annnnnnnd…. my daughter went to her first dance. Valentines day dance at the Jr High with her friends. I think I was more excited about this than she was!!
Oh – one bad thing did happen. Our kitchen sink clogged and Alan spend 3.5 hours unclogging it. That really sucked. Not the way anyone would want to spend their afternoon, snaking out the pipes. BUT, he had the skills to fix it, and we have vowed (again) never to put grease, meat, potatoes, or celery down it ever again.
Hope you had a great start to your weekend!

Q: What magazine subscriptions do you get?
Q: Have you ever had to unclog your kitchen pipes?
It’s so gross and stinky!!! Kudos to Alan for being such a handy man!!
