this week was good because of...
...a Saturday-night date on my day off in between two student leadership trainings.
...liking the most recent Bourne movie - even if I'm not thrilled with how it ended.
...Kitty's determination to get attention - even if it meant sitting on top of the papers I was trying to sign. (I imagine him saying, "oh, my bad - did you need these papers?")
...getting the must's done first, before the want's. Most of the time.
...seeing "Mary Poppins" on the big screen - and hearing everyone sing along.
...biting my tongue when sarcasm isn't the appropriate tone for the moment.
...one last Saturday at the pool before it closes for the season.
...having a fun girls' day at the pool - the conversations and company were a nice change.
...collaborating with a colleague to make lunch for our summer staff.
...the start of our fall training - even if this also overwhelms me.
...turning my idea for a door dec (top) into a reality (bottom).
...welcoming my student staff back - even if I did enjoy the mostly-quiet of the summer.
...trying the look of platform wedges and cuffed leggings - and liking it.
...a reason to go to Vegas. Because even if I don't go, I love this idea.
...a pink sunset (and sky) on Monday night.
...making it through a long week with not as much sleep as I would have liked. (Because seriously - being excited about going to bed at 1 am is not a good sign.)
...making lots of baked goods for a colleague friend's "Parents to Be Party."
...another colleague friend helping with the baking.
...Wildcat Guy's help assembling the goody bags for my staff.
...a submitted program proposal for a national conference with a colleague from another institution.
What made your week good?
