  1. My DH is on his way home and called to see if I want anything, obviously knowing this is not a great day for me. He said "I think you need a treat - how about some spaghettios?" (okay so it's a little secret love of mine, spaghettios)

  6. As befitting my name and partly why I chose it-- going outside for the first time and feeling that wonderful sun hugging your face and your body. It's like heaven to me, and I crave it.... that's about the only time I can say I actually feel "good."
