HAPPY LIST : FIVE

March 09, 2015


This past week was crazy. I stayed home most of Monday because I felt really crummy. Sore throat/ears. On Tuesday I went to visit my grandma who had been sick for a very long time and started to really decline over the weekend. She passed away peacefully just minutes before my sister and I arrived, probably just as we were pulling into the driveway. I'm going to miss that beautiful woman so much, but we are all so happy she isn't suffering any more. And especially happy she is reunited with the love of her life who passed away over four years ago. I'm going to write a lot more about all that later. So needless to say, I missed most of school and work on Monday and Tuesday. Then there were times like Friday afternoon where within a matter of minutes I broke our doorknob, blew out the light in the bathroom, and ripped a hole in the pants I was wearing. So, big things and little things, and it was just a weird week. 

I am especially glad after a week like this one that I've been good at sticking to my goal of making regular happy lists. They help me so much. All week I pay close attention to the positive things that happen, and that seriously makes a huge difference in my mood and attitude and feelings and gratitude. and rhyming. Posting the lists here is another bonus because I love to look back at them and feel happy all over again. If you have a blog or keep a journal, try this! I think you'll love it.

// Stefan's grandparents inviting us up for Sunday dinner + his grandpa serving me a huge bowl of ice cream with strawberries for dessert even though I didn't finish my meal. / A Creamery + dollar theatre date night with Stefan at the end of a tough day. / Being married to my best friend who laughs at all the same things I do. / My sweet boss bringing me a pretty flower and thoughtful card. / Planning a seriously successful cub scout den meeting at the last minute. (three cheers for leftover finger paint from our birthday party!) / Scoring loads of good deals at the grocery store. Seriously makes me feel so good. / 99 CENT PINEAPPLE, COME ON / Winning a Jamaba Juice giftcard! I think.. the email was kind of sketchy. I guess this one is TBD. //

And now, for the first time ever, I remembered to write down a funny thing someone said! I seriously laughed at this foreverrrr.

Stefan: That's like my life motto. ... I don't live by it, but I like to say it.

And okay usually I'm not really into it when people post a ton of links to cool/funny internet things. It honestly just exhausts me to look through all of them. >>> But I have to share this video. <<< I already shared it on facebook, but it is literally my favorite thing right now. I can't count how many times I've watched it and I laugh out loud evvvery time!
