Daily Awesome = Conversation

How does one get so much pleasure from something so simple?  The daily awesome is not so much in the technical definition of “awesome”  of expressing awe in the remarkable or outstanding but more in the informal sense, that sometimes you have to slow down and appreciate some of the common, everyday things we take for granted.

I’m busy. Your busy. We’re all busy. There is never enough time it seems and most of it is by our own doing if we are really honest with ourselves. Every once in a blue moon the  Evil Genius and I get time to reconnect. Last night we had a CONVERSATION. You know that thing you do when you actually talk with someone not just at them. I think it really goes a long way in the maintenance of a marriage.  

Daily Awesome = Cupcakes

I was feeling a little dejected and low.  I came home after work and said hello to my girlies as usual.  My oldest asked me how my days was.  I said, “fine, but I have a headache.”  She then asked me if I needed a hug? Of course I accepted. 

I went upstairs to lie down.  I must have fallen asleep.  I woke up to the sound of tinkering from the kitchen.  I came downstairs and my girles said, “aww, we were going to surprise you when it was ready.”  The Evil Genius was making dinner and my girlies were making cupcakes.  I could taste the love.

Daily Awesome = Found Keys

I hate that feeling when you’ve lost your keys!  You go to where they should be and grrr, gone!  So you retrace your steps.  You pat down your pockets once, twice, maybe three times a charm.  This was me this morning.  I went from room to room trying to find my keys.  I even looked in the fridge…well you never know, right?   Then it occurred to me.  No.  Did he?  He did.  The Evil Genius had left 5 minutes before me and started my car.  So no the lost keys wasn’t a great start to my day but finding them in a toasty warm car was awesome!

Daily Awesome = Clean Dishes

Today’s awesome was relayed to me by the Evil Genius, my husband.  He said my oldest daughter was cleaning up the kitchen after dinner last night and told him he needed to help her dry the dishes first…then he could go play on the computer.
