Small Thanks Meme

I was inspired by this blogger to contribute to a “Small Thanks” meme where people list small, easy-to-overlook things that make them happy. So here are things I’m thankful for today:

– I have an excuse to prepare a long and elaborate meal.

– I have just received the most recent season of Law & Order: SVU on DVD which will make grading a breeze.

– I have finally discovered how my pension fund works and it exceeds my wildest expectations. It’s like a Socialist dream, or something.

– N. has received a new version of his favorite video game and he’s happy. And when he’s happy, I’m happy for him.

– My niece Klubnikis is turning 3 years old on Saturday.

– Our departmental party will, for once, take place at a really good restaurant.

– I have been so productive this week that I feel justified in reading a new mystery by Peter Robinson.

– There are only 2 weeks of classes, after which I will have a semi-sabbatical until the end of August 2013.

Feel free to list your small thanks!

  1. A friend of mine has a disabled child. Chronologically two-years-old, functionally she’s under one. She can’t walk or talk, and has only just started to crawl.

    She absolutely adores me. It doesn’t matter who she’s with, as soon as she sees me, she’s struggling to get to me. Once in my arms, she coos, giggles, and dribbles over me. If I put her down, she cries.

    I have no idea why she likes me so much, but it doesn’t half give me the warm fuzzies to be loved so much.


  2. I’m not American but I got a day off too so I could go and have lunch with an author I met recently at a book signing whose book I loved.

    I’m grateful for lots of things but particularly having the means to live my own life. My boys are pretty cool too. They surprise me every day (mostly pleasantly).
