Where Does My Joy Come From - 24

Where does my joy come from today. ....
....hubby and I ventured out to get me a new laptop. I went with the cheapest possible one that still has everything I need. Since I am stingy (kind souls call it frugal), I declined his offer to get me what I really wanted, a MacBook Pro, to replace the one that just broke. That one was given to me by my daughter Julia. She had gotten it as part of her scholarship when she started college 5 years ago, and needed a lighter one for schlepping around campus. Here's to befriending a Microsoft machine again. May our friendship be long, prosperous, and mutually respectful.
....got to see daughter Sarah and her boyfriend Scott at BestBuy where the computering took place. We brought college books she needs for her first day of classes, but forgot at our house. Turns out, she still wants to drive up to visit with us for a breakfast before college. It's not quite on her way, but we are always happy to see her.
....daughter Julia texted us that she is back in Buenos Aires from her weekend trip to Uruguay. She has the flu, is homesick and just wanted to crawl into bed. We convinced her to skype with us just for a few minutes. We had a lovely chat with her, heard a few stories and got her to laugh a little. Now she will have much better dreams. Mission accomplished.
