    Re: What simple things make you happy?

    I got all my Christmas cards sent early this year. I still haven't decorated the house, but I'm waiting to do that this weekend when my grand daughter is here. I'm not sure how that will go having a 2 year old as my helper, but I'm sure we'll have fun!

    Lil Bit - Your tree will be very decorated at the bottom, and pretty bare near the top!

    I did that once when I was married. ONE of us thought that I was pretty funny, and that it was well worth the week in the dog house.

    My husband happened to mention he thought I might be as heavy as his ex-wife (she looks quite large!) I almost cried! His daughter jumped up and said how could you even say something like that! I was happy she stood up for me. That's a simple pleasure, knowing you have someone on your side.
    Yup, with donuts!!

    buglover, you have us on your side, too. I had an intense ending to my day, came home frustrated. I fixed some hot cocoa and I feel better already! The tightness in my chest and the cold feelings of frustration have melted away with the chocolate.

    Thanks Cootie! How funny would it be to have a huge picture of all of us standing side by side to stop people from making dumb comments! We've got FORT on our side!

    I do it because when I weigh myself EVERY day, I don't gain any weight back.
