Today, I was tired...for some reason it seems to be my normal state these days. But it was DH's day off and I didn't want to disappoint him because we had a lot to accomplish today. So, I did what I needed to at home and we went out to do some errands and shopping. At one store I almost felt like passing out but I just kept hold of the cart and prayed for strength trying not to let him know how badly I needed to go lie down.

We finished everything and came home and I made up a bunch of burgers for tonight and for the freezer then sat down here at the computer. He just brought me a cup of tea and said "I know you gave extra effort for me today and I really love you for it. But now it is your turn to relax and I will cook the burgers". Hmm, my smile last night was because HE made an effort to do something for me and my smile tonight is because he acknowledged I did the same for him.

I guess I have to accept the fact that whatever he does makes me smile!

Okay, how come the word "smile" often appears in red in posts and then it disappears. Is this only happening to me or do others see it too?

I am just about to go to a New Year's Eve afternoon party with my mom. There should be a band. I am looking forward to seeing her smile a lot.

How much this community cares for it's own and how no one can be MIA very long without someone starting a thread in their honour.

Yes, the party was wonderful and my mom and I had a great time! She was grinning from ear to ear.

What made me smile was getting PM from DC friends wishing me Happy New Year. Thank you dear friends.

I've been smiling for about an hour because I've been watching Shrek 2. I've never seen it and it's so funny. The characters are a hoot, especially the Fairy Godmother. Loved it when she went through the fastfood drive-thru. My kitties and I are watching it, but they don't seem to be a bit interested in Puss in Boots. Too bad. Antonio Banderas rings MY chimes.

My boys adore Shrek and we have the DVDs. It certainly gets me laughing a lot. There is a lot of humour in there that goes straight over the boys heads, but that I enjoy.
