Happy Thoughts

Can I just tell you how happy I am that it is Friday today.  This work week was a doozy (who uses that word anymore?  Apparently I do).  So let's just say that I am so ready for the weekend! Today I want to talk about things that make me happy because we can all use some positive energy to end this work week.

Chocolate
Well, this is a no brainer.  But lately I have been wanting chocolate so bad that I'm afraid to go to the store because I will buy a big bag and eat it all by myself. No, I will not share. Well, I'll just share with baby giggles because you know, there's no getting around that.

Feeling Baby Giggles
She has been so active lately.  Guess I am at the stage where I feel her all the time now.  It stills freaks me out but I am also amazed on how a tiny human can move around so much in a small space.  Sometimes she is so active that it is distracting especially when I"m at work.  But I am so grateful that I can feel her move and add these special moments to my life.

Having a Job
You all know that within the past 3 years I have been laid off twice.  I have struggled with wrapping that around my head.  It's hard especially when everyone around you seems to be in a "stable" job and moving on up and here I am starting from the beginning trying to prove myself every time.  But today, even with the odds against me, I am grateful that a group of people took a chance on me and that I took a chance on them. Even with stressful days, I am just grateful that I have a job.  I don't know where I will end up in the future, but I am cherishing the moment of having a job now and actually loving what I do.

Summer Work Hours
I am so happy that today on I get to leave at 1pm.

Family
My parents and sister literally live 5 minutes away from me.  This wasn't always the case, but it is now.  And I am so grateful for that.

What is making you happy today?

I'm happy because it's Friday. And that means I get to SLEEP IN tomorrow. And BOY do I need it!!!!!!!

And who knows, the signs of an active baby might mean that she will be a sleeper after she comes out? *fingers crossed for you*
