The Day with 14 Reasons

Monday was a particularly crappy day. Why? Who knows. Probably because I live in Gainesville, but my life is elsewhere.

I decided on Monday night that I was sick of crappy days. So I sat down to think of all the good/funny/unexpected things that had happened to me that day, and emailed them to my mother one by one. There were seven in all.

So that's the project: find seven reasons to be happy everyday, hopefully with photographic evidence. Post to blog. Repeat.

Today will be the one day with 14 reasons: yesterday's (which I sent only to my mother - Hi, Eemah! - by email), and today's. Ready?

Monday, October 5th, 2009's reasons to be happy:
1. I am eating dinner before 8 pm (I'm on my way back to Hillel...but still).

2. #2: I have flowers in my house that look like this, and I mix-and-matched them myself.

(The first picture is of the flowers I have right now. The second - prettiest - ones were from Rosh HaShanah, and the faraway ones were the first I bought myself).

Oh! #2.5: I have a comfy futon...which I sit on when I'm not holed up in my room. But I'm too antsy to wait for that picture to load :).

3. I get to watch videos of Amiad Binder. (Wow, that sounds creepy now that this is for public consumption. But he's just so cute!)

4. You (Eemah) sent me these.

[Note to self: these pictures are equal parts cute and annoying. I guess this blog thing is harder than it looks.]

5. I got this email today!

  1. 1. I like watching Amiad Binder video's too, though the one who loves them more then anything is Amiad himself. He actually requests sometimes to watch specific ones.
    2.Savta Sharon is a close second
    3. no. 3 on the list must be you, Navah Michal.
    4. I didn't get home from work in time to see Amiad before he went to sleep, but he got on the phone and with no prompt said "Abba, come home?" and then said "Layla tov!". I love it when he talks in Hebrew, even if he has a little bit of an accent.
    5. Luckily even if I miss Maayan going to sleep I still get to see her during the night. Several times.
    6. as you can see I'm a little obsessed with my kids, but I'll leave at least no. 7 for something else.
    7. um...hmmm...Amiad? oh...no...something else...something else...this is hard... Oh! I got it, I saw a really nice qoute, that I think you'll like too.
    הרואה לשנה - נוטע חיטה, הרואה לשנים - נוטע עצים, הרואה לדורות - מחנך אנשים.

  2. That's a great list of seven, Nahum. Love the quote. You're about to get two shoutouts in one day on tomorrow's post. I think that's a record.
