Thursday = Happiness

Today is Thursday and overall I'm feeling very happy.  Here are some reasons why.   A numbered list seems most appropriate for some strange reason.  :)  This is in not particular order other than the order they came to mind.

1.  Today is Thursday, which means tomorrow is Friday, which means then it is the weekend!!!  Do you follow my thinking?  This weekend, we are going back home to central Arkansas.  I get to have dinner with old friends tomorrow night.  On Saturday, I get my hair done!!  Then, on to have lunch with more old friends.  Really, can life get any better?  On Sunday, we are going to grill out for my mom.  Yum!!!

2.  Only one more week until Spring Break!!! Then, it's off to sunny Florida and Disney World for a week.  In case you are someone that doesn't know, Disney World is my absolute favorite place to go on vacation.  I can get away and forget the real world for a week.  If you ask me, life really can't get any better than that. We like it so much we just joined the Disney Vacation Club, which means we will be regular visitors for the next 45 years of our lives.  I hope our future children won't have a problem with that!  ;)

3.  I completed my second Couch to 5K workout today!  This is an app I got on my iphone that is supposed to train me to run a 5K in 9 weeks.  We'll see how it goes.  I have never, ever been a runner, but I have made it through two workouts so far.  This week I am doing a five minute warm-up walk, then alternating jogging for 60 seconds and walking for 90 seconds for the next 20 minutes.  I end the workout by doing another 5 minute cool-down walk.  Next week, it gets a little harder, so hopefully I can stick with it.

4.  I get a couple hours alone at home tonight.  While that is good news in itself, the part that makes me really happy is that Mike has something to do that is just for enjoyment for him.  He has joined a local photography club and they are having a class tonight on macro-photography.  I don't know a lot about it, but I know Mike loves photography and this is an interest that he can pursue that is just for him.  It seems that lately he has mostly been having to focus on work.  Working for the military, getting ready for OCS again, subbing, and his latest job at my school, which is being a personal aide for a student.  It's nice to know that he is going tonight and just having fun!

Now that you all know what is making me happy, I would love to hear about things that are making you happy right now!


  1. ummm.... hmmm. What has made me happy lately? WE ARE A WAITING FAMILY:) YAY!!! #58... joy unspeakable!
    and tomorrow being Friday is just icing on the cake!

  2. That my husband has taken yesterday and today off - which means he's home when I get home! We usually only get to see each other 2 hours MAX each day - so this is a nice little break of routine!

  3. Soooo jealous about DW. I love that place. And I'm in total agreement - the countdown to spring break is making me VERY happy.
