Day 673: A Day of Finally's

This morning I finally bathed my dog.  She normally gets this weekly.  Her previous bath this time, however, was the Monday before Thanksgiving.  Yuck.  Having a clean (and brushed!) dog in the house is definitely a Joyful Moment.

Every Wednesday I watch my friend's little boy while she volunteers at the school.  Every other Wednesday, it's in the morning during my usual workout time.  I've tried various ways to work around this, but hadn't found anything that really worked.

This morning I finally remembered that I actually own a treadmill.  A pretty nice treadmill.  Collecting dust in the corner.  So, I broke it out and the boys played while I ran.  It was a little challenging at the beginning, with me having to get off every 30 seconds, or so to solve a crisis.  But, eventually, they were okay and I put in a good run.  A fantastic and satisfying Joyful Moment.

Every year I like to get the kids cute new Sunday clothes to wear the Sunday before (or on) Christmas.  They typically are in need of new Sunday clothes by this time anyway, so it's a win-win.  But this year, I've been struggling to find what I wanted.  I finally found it today.  And it was online so I didn't have to go out into the cold for it.  Plus, I had a coupon for 20% off and free shipping!  Yeah, I'm pretty sure you can read between the lines here and just know that was a Joyful Moment for me on so many levels.

And I finally started editing my photos and catching up on my blog.  Technically, this started last night.  But it continued today and was still a Joyful Moment, so I'm counting it in my day of finally's.

Wishing you all Joyful Moments that finally happen!

I accomplished the 3 most important things I needed to do and with a good attitude. In fact, I enjoyed each one of those 3 things, in spite of all the things I hoped to do and didn't get to.
