My Favorite Things! [22 Dec 2003|06:34pm]

[ mood | lovely ]

I love this song from the Sound of Music. Definitely makes me focus not on materialism but on the little things I have that keeps me bright and happy. Here's my list so far:

  • Striped minty toothpaste

  • Red Survivor buff

  • Paper snowflakes

  • Jollibee pocket pies (they're available here in the Philippines)

  • Unscented tissue paper

  • Whipped cream froth

  • Hello Kitty Nailcutter (but it's missing!)

  • Tulips

  • Sea lion kisses

  • White moving clouds

  • Sun-pool (chlorinated feeling) smell

  • Sandcastles with seashells

  • Traingle rulers

  • Pencil shavings

  • 5-subject notebooks

  • Meygan (the Bratz doll)

  • Strawberry ice cream


Here's a little something I made a few days ago in light of the theme. :o)

One of my favorite things is reading old diaries from when I was little. When I was like 10 years old. They're so much fun to read because they're so damn stupid.
An entry will start out like "Today I played a boardgame with my sister. It was fun. I also went to the store with my mom. She bought tomatoes and milk. I haven't done that much today. Bye."

AHAHHAHA. Yeah. That's all for now.

too long... [04 Jun 2003|08:50pm]

I've not yet written in this community, but I joined months ago. I just wanted to write this.

Some of my favorite things are as follows:

..when my four month old daughter (Gabby) looks up at me in the morning and smiles her cute little toothless smile..
..when Gabby is crying because I'm not around and there's nothing to be done until I come in the room and then she's all smiles..
..when Gabby looks at me and says "Urgoo gooooo.." (her "I love you") and sometimes "Momma"..
..when my husband, baby and I sit down and watch a movie together..
(I know this one's weird)..when I'm in a chronic pain attack and the percocet sets in..(I know, weird, but painless!!!)
..when Eric (hubby) makes me a rose bubble bath and I slide in and get all warm that he did that..
..when Eric kisses me and makes everything stop just for that one kiss..
..when things go right in my life..
..when Gabby takes my glasses off because she can't look at my eyes clearly when they're on..
..(cute) when Gabby sticks her finger in her eye but only cries when I pull it out..
..when I pick Gabby up out of her swing after she's fallen asleep and she just puts her head on my shoulder and continues to sleep..
..when I have enough energy to do things around the house and make things look the way they should..
..when Eric gets up and helps me out..
..pizza, chicken pot pie smothered with cheddar, strawberries and whipped cream, cheese, whole milk, chocolate (i can't have any of these)...

So there ya go. Long list, but they mean a lot.

Making a difference to people is one of my favorite things... [14 May 2003|09:38pm]

Sometimes you're given a chance to help someone out (especially in my job), and it leaves you with that bittersweet smile.

I spoke with a woman last week at work whose husband was dying. He'd been given anywhere from 8 months to a year to live. They were not offering him any serious therapy beyond that needed to meet his day-to-day needs and to make him more comfortable as he died. Every conventional course had been exhausted, and there was nothing else to be done except try an experimental treatment from a local university, and the bills were breaking them completely. So while I wasn't able to do much, I at least was able to match them up with some resources that could help take some of the weight off. She was so grateful for the slightest bit of good news that I don't know how to describe it.

Another woman had no feet and only one full hand, in addition to other health problems. Her main complaint? Well, mainly she was cheerful and upbeat, but... She was embarrassed because her doctor had told her she had to stop working or her condition would deteriorate to the point where she would be completely dependent on others to care for her. This woman was apologetic about receiving Medicare and Social Security after more than twenty years paying into the system while people more fit than she milked that system for all they could get.

It kind of puts things into perspective. Things in my life could be a lot worse, and it's nice to be able to make someone else's life better, if only a little bit.

One of my favorite things... [05 May 2003|10:46pm]

...is when a funnysexysmarthot girl hand-makes me a card with an illustration from a children's book on the front and a smooch inside and leaves it tied to my steering wheel in the middle of the night so that I, bleary-eyed, smile all the way to work after finding it there in the morning.

- coming home and realizing you have no homework (SELDOM does this happen)
- when there is nothing at all on tv and then suddenly you flip through the channels one last time and there is a really good movie on and you are like YESSSSSS
- looking in the mirror in the morning and thinking "wooo! i'm lookin pretty good today"
- thinking you did horribly but then getting your test back and finding out that you aced it. it just brightens up your whole day! :D
- when complete strangers smile at you in a sincere way (not fakey, gag me smile)
- waking up actually rested (i can't really remember the last time i experienced that one but i can imagine it being very nice)
- getting a back massage.. ohh yeahh..
- reading a really good book until you can hardly keep your eyes open because your eyelids feel like they weigh about 50 pounds and you are soooo ready to sleep.. ahh im gonna go do that now

byeee! :D:D:D
