5 reasons to jump for joy

So I've been a little cranky this week.  With good reason, but still.  I'm really more of a look at the bright side, optimistic type person and I've had about enough, so when I read Helene's post this morning, (which brightened my day!) I just had to join in on the fun!

The Girl Next Door Grows Up puts on Feel Good Friday's each week and has a few prompts to choose from that will absolutely make you feel better!  (a good idea for all of us in this winter funk!)  I chose

Just make a list. List 5 things that made you really happy this week. No matter how bad or boring you think your week was, I bet you can find 5 things.

So, here are my five things in completely random order!

1. It may really snow here tomorrow - a good 4 inches, with some ice, which means the kids will get to play in it.  AND my father, being the big kid that he is, bought us a plastic sled to replace the old red metal and wood one I have from childhood!

2. Report cards came out this week and the boys are doing above and beyond what is expected of them. I am so proud of my smarty pants!

3.  Little man has only had poopy accidents, he has got the peeing in the potty down pat!  Even wakes up in the middle of the night to go!

4. These fancy drugs that I am on have also killed the pain in my jaw that was driving me nuts.

5. Because I counted this morning, I know that in 76 days my bestest friend will be here instead of 708 miles away.

The Constitution only guarantees the American people the right to pursue happiness. You have to catch it yourself. ~Benjamin Franklin


  1. Glad you found some things to brighten your day! It's amamzing how many wonderful things that our out there and sometimes it takes us making a list for us to realize it!

    Enjoy your weekend!

  2. I love that Ben Franklin quote! I love that no matter how bad this week is, you can always start fresh next week.

  3. Those are 5 reasons to be happy for sure! It would be great if you all got snow and you were able to go sledding...what fun! Way to go to the boys on their report cards!

    Hope you all have a great weekend!
