This is what you get when you've got a broken tripod and can't find a single place to vertically prop up the camera without a significant lean in multiple directions and it's 20-something degrees which is way too cold to mess with it:

After now enduring 4 nights in a row of incredibly interrupted sleep (I'm not talking the typical 1-2 jolts awake from Adelaide's random crying, I'm talking 1-2 hours awake in the middle of the night), I'm done. Exhausted. Completely and utterly tapped out. So instead of dragging you through my self-pity right now, I'm going to go in the opposite direction.

I read this post on The Rockstar Diaries last night, and #1, it gave me comfort to know that other moms are finding these winter days to be incredibly difficult and #2, reminded me that the very best way to get through hard times is to have gratitude for all of the good stuff. So, here it is:

10 things that make me happy:
  1. Adelaide squealing and diving to me for safety when she tries to lure Bowser to her and actually succeeds.
  2. Jordan telling the maybe it's time to buy that new camera!
  3. The snow falling right now
  4. Gilmore Girls
  5. When I walk into Adelaide's room after she wakes up from a nap and she's smiling (which sadly only happens once a day at most... does that tidbit ruin the happy part?)
  6. My morning coffee.
  7. When Adelaide pops her head back into the living room to say "bye" when she goes to play in her room by herself.
  8. A crackling fire.
  9. Going out to eat. Not having to think of something to make or clean up is heavenly.
  10. Baking. Always.
Okay, I'm going to go enjoy this snow before it's gone.
