* the little love note that Rich left for me in our pile of mail
* the ability to play the piano, and how much of a stress-relief it is
* text messages
* patient people, especially when I am driving
* Rich letting Sadie sleep with us for the first time last night!
* Sadie not getting sick after she ate a mushroom from our backyard this morning
* my manager, who makes Ride-Alongs actually fun
* chocolate-covered, peanut-butter-filled pretzels from Trader Joe's that are only 35 calories each
* my mom calling me all the time. She's in Alaska right now, so I miss that!
