1) my pups and kitties, even if the pups won't shut the *@!% up!
2) my school family/friends, both those of the past and present
3) the almost finished dishes... i let them pile up for WAY too long
4) having a new outfit picked out for the first day of school, even though I'm a teacher
5) the memories of my dear friend who passed away this week and remembering her smile, she fought lung cancer for almost three years and just lost her battle... she had a beautiful smile and laugh, it makes me sad to lose her, but I'm happy to have known her, to have memories, and to know she is out of pain.
