THINGS THAT ARE MAKING ME FEEL BETTER RIGHT NOW

I had a long day at work and got a headache in the middle of a 4-hour stretch of teaching with no ibuprofen access. No pills in my bag. No co-workers or carpool buddies with pills. I came home, popped some sweet relief, and crawled into bed.

    My little lovely girls telling me about decorating the Christmas tree at grandma and grandpa's house this afternoon.
    Big's favorite ornament = brass trumpet and French horn tied together with plaid ribbon. Little's favorite = motorized and lighted Hallmark holiday parade with floats that go around and around.

    Listening to my husband make up sub-plots about tooting and things being creepy as he reads "The Sweet Smell of Christmas" and "Raggedy Ann and Andy Help Santa Claus" to the girls at bedtime.
    He's doing voices, too, and they're laughing their heads off.

    This can be so hard, y'all.

    Overhearing littler girl whisper herself to sleep.
    Our rooms are next door to each other, but I usually go downstairs after they're tucked in and can't hear this.
