Love/Hate Relationships

I hate...
  • when the brown truck of happiness idles near your house but doesn't leave you anything
  • when people in cars stop to have a conversation while you are waiting behind them
  • when the flooring person who was supposed to be here yesterday but cancelled and rescheduled for today is now late today


  • I love...
  • when the BToH rings your doorbell unexpectedly. BFF, your package is here!!!
  • when your roses are blooming
  • when you get an appreciative e-mail from the teacher you aid
  • when you ask co-workers to your birthday lunch and their faces light up at the invitation
  • when children recognize you in the grocery store and happily call, "Hi Mrs. Smalltown Mom!"
  • when the HH seems to have solved the problem with Frank's computer
  • when Ernest is asked to wear the frog costume at Princess Day at the zoo. Frog? Princess? I think he's going to be kissed by lots of tiny princesses!
  • when my great-nephew is excited that we are going to his pre-school's spaghetti dinner
  • when there are only 18 working days left until summer vacation
  • when the love list is so much longer than the hate list

    I was just about to comment that I love that your love list is longer than the hate list, and then I got to the last item on your love list!

    I'm with Cheri -- how wonderful that the love list is far longer.

    No doubt! When the love list is longer, you know you've got it right.
