Donna Gets it Right ----

3 -04 -04

I Like It Like That!

I like the self-serve check-out at BJ’s Wholesale.

I like it when I find a parking spot right in front!

I like it when my Granny Smith apples are cold, crisp, and sweet.

I like it when it’s 75 degrees in March.

I like getting sniped on eBay when it’s something I really couldn’t afford in the first place. On the other hand….. I like sniping the winning eBay bid on stuff for my kids, even when I can’t afford it.

I like it when, out of the blue, my 3 year old son who is usually an animal says, “I wuv you Mommy.”

I like shopping the day after Thanksgiving.

I like Brunswick stew and grilled cheese sandwiches on cold winter nights.

I like a tall, white chocolate mocha from Starbucks.

I like a convertible.

I like bacon and jelly sandwiches on toast.

I like going on dates with my husband.

I like hyacinths.

I like the groundhogs that live in the tree line behind my house.

I like the song “In Your Eyes” by Peter Gabriel.

I like being 40.

And last by certainly not least….

I like Springer Connection. Thanks Jack and Dan for helping me to smile everyday.

Until next time……
