Ten Things to Smile About

July was a rough and long month in the CA home.  Personally, I would like to dig a very deep hole and bury it.  Let's look at it shall we:  the cat ran away, husband in the hospital, rotten neighbors and their children, being sick, breaking out in psoriasis, and the list goes on and on.  So participating in EmmyMom's Ten things to smile about this month was especially difficult for me, but absolutely necessary!!!

1.  On our first beach trip we had a stow away...a frog!  We used our wagon to carry things, and we figure it was on the wagon.  I never got a picture of the frog, but it was quite the spectacle.

2.  There is an iPhone cover I saw at Wally, and I just might be getting it, it has Perry the Playtpus on it!  I laughed so hard.  Loved it.  My niece was more into the pink one with the lips and hearts.  She just doesn't get the coolness.

3.  Despite losing Midnight, I like to believe someone kind has taken him in.  He's a beautiful cat.  In turn we have taken in two cats.  They are warming up nicely.

Especially this guy--Spencer.  He is very lovey.

4.  Going to see Brave.  A lot of people are trash talking it.  I don't know why.  I thought it was excellent.  My son, who hates girlie things was on the edge of his seat of this movie about a princess!

5.  When Kristin got a shirt that said BAZINGA!  I told her I would take it....I did.  But only long enough to wear it and pose in it.  

6.  Another beach trip.  This time with my bestie!  She has the picture of us.  It was sooo much fun.  Ryan rode a boogie board for the first time ever.  The kid is a natural.  He went in and new what to look for and what was not worth his time.

7.  Riding some waves myself.  It was fun.  I really enjoy the beach.

8.  Celebrating the fourth of July with the missionaries.  I love to give them a home at the holidays.

9.   Despite being in the hospital, the kids made the most of it and cheered up their dad.

10.  Surviving an other wise tough month and finding I did in fact, have things to smile about.
