Bouncing off the walls

So I  *might* be bouncing off the walls a little bit tonight...
You see I gave up caffeine about eight weeks ago...
Today, they were giving away iced cappuccinos from Tim hortons (which are my favorite)...
They are not caffeine free and they are not sugar free (which is something else I have tried to avoid recently)...
My hands aren't shaking but just barely...
It is amazing what can happen when you get chemicals out of your system....and then have them again...
It was a really good cappuccino...

So...I thought I should do my Thursday's Smiles....which I haven't done in a very long time...
Here you go:
End of the  month is tomorrow.  I have missed goal by a lot and there is nothing that I can do about it.  First time in a year and a half.  I am not stressed.  As part of my not living to work mantra that I am trying (again) I have decided that I did the best that I could this month with what I had to work with.  I am happy with the work I have done this month and am set up really well for next month, so I will be happy with that.
My parents are coming next week.  Spent part of last weekend straightening up the house and cleaning and organizing.  There is still some left to do but it will get done this weekend.  I called the cleaning lady to come in and actually clean the house on Monday.  I will not apologize for this.  My house needs a deep clean and I don't have the time to do it.  I work hard for my money and will spend it to get this done and be very happy with the result.  Plus it means that I can spend time with my husband this weekend doing something fun...just the two of us.
Lobster season is in full swing and they are cheap!! One of the benefits of living up here is that it is cheaper to buy lobster than almost any other meat during the summer....and it's my mom's favorite so we will be able to have that while she is here....I love being able to make her smile.
I am off next Tuesday through Friday.  I can't wait to have a vacation where I stay at home..
My parents are coming next week and spending the week with us...in our own space...with no one else around...and for no particular reason.  This is the first time this has happened...They have been up before but always with other people or for a specific reason.
i am working on a project at work that is different from what I do every day.  makes it much easier to handle the day to day drudgery when I know there is something else that will require my brain.
My kitties have been super duper snuggly lately....I love it!!
I hope that your corners of the world are happy and healthy....I think of you all every single day as I marvel at your well crafted words, your art, and your kindness.  Thank you for letting me have a glimpse into your worlds.   You inspire me, make me smile and give me unending joy.  I don't say that often enough to you all...sending love, hugs and smiles to each and every one of you tonight!


  1. It's a twofer - Lobster season and the 'rents in town? OMGawd, how am I NOT planning a trip to come and visit you? ::giggle::

    No, seriously, that is fabulous news. I am so happy that your parents are coming. Family is the best, and it's nice that you and yours are so close. It's a blessing.

    Enjoy your lobsters. I still look at the pics of us eating the ones you sent and it never, ever fails to make me grin like a fool. Best night EVER! Thank you.

    Love you always. Hugs and kisses, JG

  2. I love happy posts like this one.
    Not sure I could give up coffee. I probably should try..one day.

    Hope the visit with your parents is wonderful
    Sending hugs
