1) The Internet. I work with younger people who have never known life without the Internet, or a cell phone. I'll go ahead and date myself. Yes, I've used pay phones plenty of times and I remember when you couldn't just use google to find an answer. You had to go an encyclopedia, or a library, start with a card catalog and go on an expedition. It's nice to have knowledge at your fingertips sometimes.
2) Good neighbors. Let's just say a thoughtful neighbor did something helpful today. To get into more specifics would expose my total absent-mindedness and this is 5 things I'm Loving This Week, not a confession.
3) My flexible schedule. It's great to have a flexible schedule, just as I'm getting burnt out from work, I can try to get other stuff done and better yet- spend time with my son going to his favorite park.
5) Spring! There's something about hyacinths and tulips coming up that puts me in a Spring Cleaning and happy mood. 60 degrees and sunshine helps too : )
