I have a saying "It's the small things in life". I usually employ this saying when I derive joy from some small thing: I got to the bus stop right as my bus got there, a new recipe worked out, my favorite item was on sale, I had a good run - anything really.
A while ago we went and saw the movie Wall-E. Loved it!! I thought that Wall-E was so cute and joked that I wanted to get a little stuffed one. Last night, darling hubby ran into Blockbuster while I ran into the grocery store to grab milk. He came back without a movie, but said he got something for me. A little stuffed Wall-E! I got ridiculously excited! Partly because of the actual little toy, and partly just because my hubby is so sweet and thoughtful. So I now have Wall-E keeping watch over me as I do homework.
