I'm not a teacher, but I love #4 with my own kids. It's funny how they can drive me bonkers, but with one smile or a hug just turn everything around. ;)

I've posted my Thursday Thirteen, too. Enjoy!

Isn't it amazing how the smallest, most simple things can bring us such happiness? Great list!! How do I make CARAMEL apple cider?!?! I love regular apple cider!

Hi! My mom was the home ec teacher at your old highschool, (um...yarbro or Ward) and my husband is one of your old friends brothers (Wineman...I'm not big on givin' names)
Anyway, I found your blog through myspace and thought that I would start the Thursday Thirteen as well.

I can totally relate to almost all of those (except the Happy Meal). I love #4 too, I'm a music teacher and it's always great to get spontaneous hugs from students.

My thirteen's up too. Cheers!

I miss the cardboard box happy meals! They were the best!

Warm chocolate chip cookies--Yum!!

My TT is up!

Wow - people DO read my blog!

slackermommy - yeah, I had no idea when I woke up this morning how appropriate this particular TT would be for my day...I definitely needed to think some happy thoughts!

PJMama - I know that isn't your screen hame here, but it's what I knew you as first, so it's what I'm using. Anyway, I get the caramel apple cider at Starbucks, but really just add caramel syrup and whipped cream to your mug of cider and it's just as good as theirs.

Crazy Beautiful Stranger - hey I know who you are! *sings* "It's a small world after all!"
