Another AWESOME thing...finding your keys

As I was reading my AWESOME book I read one entry about finding lost keys...You know, you are ready to walk out the door and you realize that you don't have your keys, you search and search, (he goes on and talks about stages of searching) then open your door and find them hanging out of the lock.
Well, a few weeks ago, as Chris was walking out the door to go to work after lunch he handed my keys to Kayla. First, never, ever give keys to Kayla! she loves playing with keys especially real ones. Second, if you do, keep an eye on her. I wasn't really paying attention and didn't see what she did with them. later that day I was looking for them and couldn't find them. I didn't really worry about it...days later we still hadn't found the keys (I totally blame Chris for this one). We went on vacation and I was quite concerned about leaving without my keys...who knows if she left them outside and someone picked them up, if we lose Chris' keys we don't have another spare...We went, no one used them to steal all our stuff, and we didn't lose Chris'. Then one day Chris asked Kayla to throw something in the sink, he watched her throw it in the garbage! We figured that my keys were long gone, having gone out with the garbage. A few days later I was getting ready for teacher leadership (for church) and needed somewhere to put some water bottles. I opened up a big bucket we had sitting in the hallway waiting to be taken downstairs...there were my keys!! it was AWESOME!!!!

1000 awesome things...

I got a new book today. I've seen it around, but picked it up at WalMart (that's Ryker's favorite store!) And now I'm inspired...It's all about the little things that make your day. It started with a blog and hasn't stopped. Now I'm going to join in on the awesomeness! (I think I got that from watching Chuck, it's awesome if you haven't seen it before) I haven't blogged for awhile, but I am going to be better (not that anyone has noticed, but it will be good for me) I am going to include some of the things that make my day better when I'm having a bad day, or the things that just make a great day awesome!
*living on higher ground, literally. It's been raining here and most of Southern Alberta is flooded out (highways are covered in water, fields are lakes) but we've had no problems so far with water in our house!
*a job that I love. I just got a new job this week. I'm now working in the operating room at the hospital here in Taber. I love the nurses and doctors that I work with. It's a challenge, and I love a challenge.
*dancing. Blake is our little dancer (she danced before she walked) and will dance on command!

*sleeping babies. I love when everyone has naptime, doesn't happen too often, but when it does it's AWESOME

what makes your day awesome??
