Don't you love it when...
...you come home from a hard, stressful day's work (because your shirt was inside out half the day!) and find your significant other has done the dishes, cooked diner and has it waiting for you on the table?

Dont you love it when you go down the 1/4 mile? Doing the long burnout so your tires get nice and sticky? Getting set as the lights light up and you look at your opponent... Looking down at every yellow light turn on as the excitment builds in you a little more with every light? Revving up your car to get a good lauch, hearing your beast roaring just waiting for you to let it go? As the last light turns green, its go time! Popping your clutch and feeling your body sink into the seat as your head goes back into the seat and before you know it its time to shift to 2nd, you bang the gear in as hard as you can and make sure you dont miss! You look for your opponent and your slowly pulling away as you bang into 3rd the needle going now over 70mph you feel your body go deeper into your seat and your head goes back again! As you go into 4th the needle now going over 90mph and getting to 100mph pretty quick! You look for your opponent but he's nowhere to be seen and you worry, What if he crashed or hit the wall!? But then you look in the mirror and you see his lights far far away behind you with you now well over 110mph!.. and you won! you cross the finish line and you won! Time to break slowly and go get your certificate biggrin.gif (timeslip)....

Dont you love that?

Don't you love it when

...you get together with old friends and it feels just like the good parts of the past all over again?

Don't know that I put it in the 'love it' catagory....but

I attended the wedding of my High School best friends daughter this weekend....the last time I saw her was 1986 when she would have been 7 or 8. She recognized me, by name, in the receiving line. Blew my socks off!

Don't you love it when...
you are helping your Kindergartener with her homework and she surprises you with all the knowledge that she is absorbing? I feel so proud, for both her and myself. She's my big girl smile.gif

Happiness is a new grandchild - and knowing your child has to wherewithall to raise it.

You get to spoil it and she gets to raise it.

I love it when I stumble across someone's simple, concise, and relevant comment that affects me just right at just the right time.

I love knowing where all my close family members are at this moment and that
they are happy and healthy.

Don't you love it when it ....Rains!

We had a spectacular Thunder and Lightning display overnight in the Bay Area....
Santa Cruz was hit with lightning from about 11pm to 2 am, and then it rained in torrential downpours into the early am. Haven't seen the rain totals yet but little gullies that take a weeks worth of rain to flow strongly were full with clear, clean runoff from the several inches of rain...

That definitely sounds lovely! I want to know that "sinking into the seat" feeling, well my car on the 4th would only go 60, then i need to shift to the 5th or else the machine will sound so mad that'd make you want to press the middle paddle immediately... biggrin.gif

I love it when I come home from work...my dog is expecting me to walk him..
but I get a reprieve and my son walks him instead. Not only that but he
bathes him as well. But now my pup is so full of frisky it's gonna take
both of us calm him down!

Don't you love it when people actually use their turn signals in traffic? It's such a rare sight - some say blinkers are a myth. If you're lucky, and I mean really lucky, the car that just cut you off at least used their blinker.

Don't you love it when you can finally ride around in the daytime with the car
windows down, feeling a nice breeze from outside, instead of having to run
the air conditioner just to breathe? I do and thankfully for the past few day
I have! smile.gif
