Today is a better day and to keep the momentum rolling I'm going to give you five lists of five things to think about.

Here we go!

Five things that make me happy!
1. I've lost 9 pounds.
2. I dropped ten points off my cholesterol too! (I feel really old having to monitor this!)
3. JP is my friend. She's awesome!
4. Spring seems to be getting serious about showing up!
5. I had a problem free day working on SAP today. Only one thing and I got a fast answer so all is good!

Five things that make me sad:
1. I wish my siblings were closer (and nicer sometimes).
2. The Senator's been sick this week.
3. I backed out of multicultural day at his school because I just couldn't squeeze it in!
4. I have to drive to Wisconsin on Friday. I really hate that drive.
5. There's virtually no action on our house.

Five books I recommend:
1. The Ugly American by William Lederer.
2. Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman
3. The Bible
4. The Lorax by Dr. Seuss
5. Any collection of Mark Twain's work. He is really a brilliant satirist in my mind. Yes, I'm simple. So?

Five Movies:
1. Crash
2. Se7en.
3. Blazing Saddles.
4. The Quiet Man
5. Breakfast at Tiffany's.

5 Undeniable Facts:
1. Anyone that doesn't like children isn't to be trusted.
2. Crayons are therapy in a box.
3. So is playdough.
4. If your dog doesn't like a person, you probably shouldn't either.
5. Trying to keep cats out of the bed is a total waste of time.

Oh and a bonus:

5 things I would like to do in the next five years:
1. Adopt again.
2. Go to Italy.
3. Buy and Rehab houses.
4. Go to Australia
5. Learn to Kayak.

What's your list?

Excellent lists Lisa - I'm glad you're feeling more upbeat.

Congratulations on the 9 pounds, that's freaking amazing! Tell me all!

I would suggest that when you have some free time (next year sometime?) that you read Sue Monk Kidd's The Secret Life of Bees. It was a really heart happy book.
