Celebrate the Small Things: 5/31


The things that have gotten me through this annoying week:

1)  Chocolate.
2)  Air-conditioning.
3)  FB friends.
4)  A husband who occasionally makes good suggestions.
5)  The hope that next week will be better.
6)  More chocolate. 
7)  Much more chocolate.  (I should  own stock in a chocolate company ... except I'd eat all my dividends.)




This post is part of VikLit's blog hop, Celebrate the Small Things. To be part of this blog hop, all you have to do is follow the link and put your name on the Mr.Linky list, and then be sure to post every Friday about something you're grateful  for that week.  It can be about writing or family or school or general life.  This is the funnest and easiest blog hop ever!

I hope next week is a better week for you! Chocolate definitely helps get me through life's less delightful moments too. ;)

Kate Larkindale said...

Chocolate is certainly one of the more important parts of life. Anyone who says otherwise is a fool... I just don't trust people who say they don't like chocolate.

Lara Lacombe said...

Ahhh, chocolate. Always there for you when you need it. Have a good weekend! :)

Hmm, let me guess: you like chocolate? ;)

Sorry to hear this past week has been so annoying for you. Crossing my fingers that next week will be better!

Hope next week is better for you! And here, have more chocolate. It's from my private Belgian stash ...

Rachna Chhabria said...

I hope next week is better for you, Lexa. Save some chocolates for me.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

All the dividends?
Big believer in AC - thank God someone invented it.
Have a better weekend, Lexa.

I gave you a shout out on my blog.

Thumbs down to poop weeks, thumbs up to a positive attitude that says, "Sunshine always follows rain and there is no joy without pain!" Hugs. X

(and gorgeous mountain sized chocolates!)

Nana Prah said...

LOL. I'm totally with you on the chocolate.

Leandra Wallace said...

Our electricity went out last night and so our air was kaput for a bit. Soooo grateful when it came back on, so I second 2. and 1. Oh, and 6. & 7. =)

Yum! Chocolate has been helping me through this week too :)

S.K. Anthony said...

BUT at the top of my list is most definitely chocolate too... that's the good stuff!

M. J. Joachim said...

Chocolate! Yes, chocolate! I could use a bit of chocolate right about now. It sounds positively delicious. Sorry you had an annoying week.

Al Diaz said...

Great list. Especially numbers 2 and 4. I couldn't manage this writing life without them.

Cherie Reich said...

Wonderful list, especially chocolate and air conditioning!

Carol Kilgore said...

Hooray for air conditioning!
And chocolate :)

Happy Weekend!

Chocolate and men...the perfect combination.

Chocolate and air-conditioning. Yep, that'll help take the edge off a crappy week. I hope your weekend is better, though!

Hey Lexa,

And not only chocolate, your adoring 'Farcebook' friends, a husband who has been known to make good suggestions, to really help you get over an annoying week, you get a comment from me, yes me, shy, humble and modest me who has suddenly realised that he is doing a run-on sentence which if it keeps going and starts missing commas you will find that you have to eventually take a breath. And with that, I'm going to have some real chocolate, as in British chocolate! Yay!

Gary :)

Old Kitty said...

Awwwww I hope you get lots more chocolate (and great suggestions! LOL!) this fine weekend!!!
Take care

VikLit said...

Chocolate and air con! Sounds great. I hope next week is better and has chocolate in it! :)

Donna K. Weaver said...

Been a tough week, huh? *hands over more chocolate*

Heather Musk said...

Chocolate is gooooooooood. I hope next week is better for you and if not, well, there's always more chocolate.

Suzanne Furness said...

At least there's always chocolate!

Nas said...

Great suggestion! Hope you had heaps of chocolate for your birthday as well!

Happy Birthday!

Misha Gericke said...

Sounds like a tough week. Hope the next one is a lot better.

Stephen Tremp said...

Without hope it is impossible to wake up in the morning. Hope is what keeps me going. Chocolate helps too!

DEZMOND said...

oh, I think I'm helpless being allergic to chocolate which gives poor little moi pimples :(

VR Barkowski said...

Without hope, nothing else matters ... well except for chocolate, friends, and family. But where there's chocolate, friends and family, there's always hope.

Indulge, Lexa! This is your birthday month, chocolate comes guilt-free!

Like others, I do tend to romanticize bygone eras. However, I am so very, very grateful I live in a time of air-conditioning, Advil, and Lindt chocolates. Amen. :-D

I'm adding purple pens to your list and ultra thin Sharpie markers. Love them. :)

J.L. Campbell said...

Bring on the chocolate!

Ms Misantropia said...

My week has also been very heavy. Things that got me through: Buffy, chocolate, wine, cupcakes :)

Patsy said...

That's where I've been going wrong - not enough chocolate!

Sorry to hear you had a frustrating week. I'm also a big fan of solving my problems via chocolate. Sending you some virtual chocolate truffles (my fav!). And here's to a better week!

Beverly Stowe McClure said...

I hope the new week is a better one for you. Always the chocolate.

Meredith said...

So I read your most recent post and I'm going to celebrate your HUGE news about Soul Cutter with you! *shakes pom poms* I think I've read an excerpt somewhere from it. HUGE CONGRATS!

And of course I celebrate the small things with you too. Especially chocolate LOL!
