I can't stop reading the news, and it is making me so angry, so I need to refocus. I am such a not-angry-at-the-news type of person but I guess we all have our breaking points. So hey, what happened to you today that made you happy? Let's share.
  1. My daughter got her braces off!

    Breaking my no-photos of my kids on social media policy because today sucked.
  2. My kids both had good parent-teacher conferences
  3. I made turkey chili AND banana muffins
    I am basically Betty Crocker, I think we can agree.
  4. I get my new book cover tomorrow!
    Okay, it was supposed to come in today and didn't , but it is something to look forward to tomorrow.
  5. One of the dogs pooped on the carpet, and I'm 99% sure I blamed the right dog.
    You fellow hound owners know this is a real triumph, am I right?
  6. That's about it. What about you?
  7. The water came back on three hours earlier than they'd threatened!

  9. The Wiz Live on NBC
    It was so great! The cast was incredible and the production value was higher than the last two NBC musicals and UGH I want to talk about Uzo Aduba forever

  11. A friend from grad school passed my resume along at the foundation she works at which I just applied for a job at!
    That sentence was horribly written. But I'm tired and I've been drinking beer.
