Things That Make Me Happy

A clean house. Saturday is my cleaning day. By Sunday you wouldn't know it. But this past Saturday, I cleaned everything. I mean a "on your knees scrub the floors clean" clean. It was especially gratifying because Mister worked all day Saturday. I wan't cleaning around him, it was a full on clean.

The happy part is that we've managed to keep it clean ALL week long. And by clean I mean everything in it's place. Nothing laying around. Bliss.

I am not sure everyone was on board at first or realized the happiness it was bringing me until I got up out of bed on Sunday night to clean up the kitchen, which is usually left a mess, when Mister came to bed. I think the clanking of dishes said all there was to say and it's been clean sailing since...

Focus on Happy

Do you ever feel that way? Like they just don't get it. I do quite a bit at work when we're talking about recruiting (that's what I do)

But I feel it even more when I think about how I structure my days, my weeks, my months. Like I don't get it.

I feel like I spend the majority of my life hurrying from one thing to the next; on the way to the end of the day, the end of the week, the next year, something different, the next stage of life...I have a great life and I am hurrying through it without evening noticing what makes it good.

If I look back on my week, it looks like this - work, traffic, work, traffic, work, traffic,work, traffic, work, traffic. It goes without saying traffic sucks. Work, is work. It keeps me busy, pays the bills. I work for a great company but at the end of my life I am not wanting to remember traffic and life in a cube.(cubes also suck). It's time to add a whole lot of happy into my days, weeks, months. Man, it's easy to get lost in the rat race. Do you have any secrets to finding balance? to not living on autopilot? to getting the most out of life?

See that little swirling circle in the middle of the picture? It stops me from being able to post. I only get it at work. I think its a conspiracy.

Eat Pray Love

Is anyone going to see the movie today/tonight? Anyone read the book? I was invited to go see it with a group of ladies tonight who I always enjoy their company but I lack Time Energy Sleep.

Dancin Shoes

The dress for the reunion didn't matter. It was the shoes that got all the attention. Worth every inch and every cent.

The reunion was a ton of fun.

The Breakfast of Champions

or the breakfast of someone who went to the informal class reunion get together and realized an extra pound or two is no big thing. Just about everyone has one or two. Plus I can only get these doughnuts at home.

Cashin Out

My parents idea of fun. Playing the slots. My fun, people watching.

I smell like a cigarette and I saw a lady carrying her phone in her cleavage. Quite an afternoon.

Indiana Bound

11 hours in the car with Mister. Not sure why we need the GPS when we clearly know where we are going. From what I've seen so far I the better driver and that's not saying much. Wish us luck.

Hating Julie

Seems like this has been on tv a lot lately. I only like to watch the Julia parts. The Julie parts just make me want to kick the crap out of her.

I am trying to ignore analyzing what that says about me...
