more little cheer

These made me smile:

  • the blossoms on our pear tree, the daffodils, and the forsythia (thanks for reminding me to look, Amy—did I use the comma appropriately? Wait, don’t tell me and let me live happily in punctuation ignorance)

  • the cute squirrel who insists on eating the buds off our pear tree

  • the way one of my special cats can shake his head and then act as if he is off balance—which he probably is

  • the way my husband laughs over a commercial he finds hysterical—we have no clue what the commercial is advertising

  • the thought of getting to use the sledge hammer again

  • some of the assertiveness I had in my 20s and 30s is now returning and there are some companies who aren’t going to like it because I’ve learned how to be assertive without getting mad or sounding aggressive

  • looking forward to spying on the garbage man on Monday to see if the company that picks up our garbage is the same company I saw pitching recycling in the same truck as the garbage—I don’t flatten boxes and clean out containers for them to be trashed πŸ˜€


About April

I'll come back to this when I find out who I really am. I've been through some extremely rough patches but they have made me a better person. I blog if my brain is functioning first thing in the morning.

    I swear, sometimes I think you and I are leading some kind of parallel life. I’m gearing up to hit the used car guys with a big dose of assertiveness without crying on Friday.

    Glad to know your forsythia is all golden and beautiful. And the comma looks good to me. Keep in mind that I’m a known comma abuser, though. I can tell you that our three kids are major proponents of the “Oxford comma,” which is the comma that comes before “and” in a list – so I’m certain in this case your comma passes muster. Geez, my kids are such nerds.

      That is so funny you say that you would cry when being assertive. That is exactly why I have been avoiding confrontation. When I get mad, I cry. How effective are we when trying to make s a point while crying?

  2. Commercials like Three customers ahead of us Jimmy. Jimmy says, “you’re not helping”.

    Sometimes crying can be effective. πŸ™‚

    I love this post – so positive. I anticipated something so great from the title – more little cheer. Taking cheer in little bites is much more palatable than as a buffet anyhow. Brilliant.
