Where Does My Joy Come From - 27

Where does my joy come from today....
.... the fact that a woman can change her mind. The other day I read (I think it was KathyJo who posted it) that a woman's mind is cleaner than a man's because she changes it more often. Made me and hubby snicker. Yesterday I ripped the old rusty microwave from the kitchen counter and kissed it good bye. Today, I reached for the empty spot about 4 times, to heat lunch, to heat coffee, to heat tea, to defrost veggies for pizza topping. Yeah, so I will go look for cheap microwaves next week. It was nice to wish the old times back, but I am not ready. Instead, I will grow all my own vegetables in summer. Let's see how that goes, lol.
.... I realized yesterday night that Zoo Tycoon is a Microsoft game, and after long years of never being able to play it, I could reinstall it to this laptop and play to my heart's content. Years ago, when we first bought the game, one of the girls always hogged it. And being a good adult, I pretended I didn't care. But I did. I played it this morning, and forgave my MacBook for breaking. Now if I could just figure out how to hire more maintenance staff. My Zoo is so cram packed full, that the garbage cans are continuously overflowing. How unattractive.
.... daughter Julia is coming home tomorrow!!!! At least back to the US from Argentina. She will have a very long flight, and her best friend will pick her up from the airport. He spent the last year studying abroad and then traveling Europe. And then she will come home to us for the weekend. Wine, snacks, Settlers of Catan. I think it will be a lovely time (we have to work both weekend days, but a little Julia is better than no Julia)
