Happier Days

Ok, sorry everyone. I'm such a complainer, but I gotta keep it real! Everyone has bad days. Thank you to all my kind friends for supporting me and loving me through my rough moments!!! It means a lot to know that I'm not alone. And the bad day has passed. So to make up for it, I'm going to list 10 things that make me happy today.

  1. Today, the rain makes me happy. It was getting too hot too fast. And the rain is good for the garden I planted. I'm still crossing my fingers that anything actually grows!
  2. Walmart Yes, it was the grand opening for the Walmart on Bangerter and 134th! Woooowee! I went with the boys and it wasn't as crowded as I thought. Everything is new and stocked. Awesome. And it's only 3 minutes from my house. Big smiles here.
  3. M & M's They are my favorite. My comfort treat. Just plain M&M's. I really loved the crispy ones, but haven't been able to find them since I was in college.

  4. Quiet time. Max is asleep, Lukas is playing quietly and I have a few quiet moments to do whatever I want. After this, I think I'll curl up on the couch with my M&M's and read more of "Eclipse".
  5. Clean Laundry. It usually takes me a couple of days, but the laundry is practically done and I have clean clothes again for the whole family! YAY! It's quite an accomplishment that we all have to do every week and today I'm happy it's done.
  6. Pizza We're having pizza for dinner b/c I don't have a lot of time tonight to make a big meal (I have a primary activity and Pat has an EQP meeting). I bought a yummy self-rising crust pizza. And caesar salad. Done lickety-split. No worrying about what to eat for dinner.
  7. DVR All the shows I miss during the day, I can easily watch at my convenience. Shows I never miss thanks to DVR...LOST, The Office, Ellen, Oprah, Hell's Kitchen (more for Pat, he loves to watch Gordon yell), Eli Stone, American Idol.
  8. Allergy Medicine Feeling good, no itchy eyes, sneezing or runny nose. Nice.
  9. Showers I actually got one today. Mmmm so clean.
  10. Blogging I love checking on you all. It's fun to hear about your lives and it helps me to be happy!

Shower are so refreshing!! It's nice to litterally COUNT your blessing sometimes. It puts things into perspective, and always makes you feel better.

That is the best list! If I made one of my own it would be very similar. I love Lost and I love DVR!!! I'm glad you got past your bad day...we all have them!

You are so good to always find the good even in the middle of your bad. How do you do that??? You're awesome JaNece. Just remember we have to have bad days to appreciate the good days. It's called opposition my friends. Opposition. The necessary condition in this world of ours... (Hahaha - that's from My Turn on Earth. Do you remember that song???)
