Catching it

Lately, I’ve caught a lot:

I’ve caught up on my sleep after catching the walking bug

I’ve caught wind of some good networking info.

I’ve caught myself laughing, singing along and trying new things.

I’ve caught more tasks than I bargained for in team meetings and made it through to tell the tale.

I’ve caught a look from the Hubbs, hugs from the grands, and smiles from the boys.

I’ve caught on to new technology.

I’ve caught a view of the Tigers’ bullpen …

Hello, Tigers! photo from

I’ve caught a shy smile on another’s face when I gave them a compliment.

I’ve caught a movie .. in 3D!

I’ve caught a plane and a few new tunes, but I haven’t caught a spring cold, thank goodness.

I’ve even been told that I’m a “catch.”

“The Constitution only guarantees the people the right to pursue happiness.Β  You have to catch it yourself.” ~Author unknown, often attributed to Benjamin Franklin

So, what have you caught lately?
