¿Qué le hace feliz?

Oh, Happy Day!
Today did not start off quite as I had hoped. I woke up late. (Really only by 3 minutes, but those three minutes really do a number on my drive.) Fortunately I always figure out what I'm wearing the night before, otherwise, I'm standing incoherently at the front of my closet, bleary eyed and squinting unable to figure out what to put on. At least I had one thing going for me. I arrived to work, five minutes late, but at least I arrived. As I was sitting there I was discussing my choice to be happy. Happy's competition, Cranky, was beginning to win me over. Then I thought, maybe I should come up with a list of things that cause me to be happy. The difference is that I decided to think of weird, eccentric things that bring me some level of joy. There is God, family and friends, but there are also smaller, every day things. In no order of importance here are some things that I thought of:
  1. Chipotle- For those of you who share my feelings toward Chipotle, you know just what I'm saying.
  2. My teeth- I know it's been months, but I can't help it.
  3. Stickers- haha! My fave sticker, "Vote for Jimmy" from Jimmy Johns (of course)!
  4. The smell of leaves burning.
  5. Quiet.
  6. Grape Koolaid.
  7. Bamboo and beavers in the wild.
  8. Flowers- I'm a Lily, Star Gazer, fan.
  9. Cleaned off counters.
  10. My favorite beach in Kenosha.
  11. The word "akin"- Finding different uses for it recently has been quite the challenge, but entertaining in the least.
I am sure that there are others, but those are some for now! Feel free to add your own!

Miscellaneous things to note:
  • I have been trying to figure out how to post a video on this here blog thing. Someone even sent me directions, with pictures! Um, yeah, I don't know. I am determined, however, to figure it out.
  • Based on the clothing I have hanging in my closet I decided to try something new in order to make sure that I cycle through all my clothes. I have all my sweaters/shirts hung down the row in my closet. I am going to wear one right after the other. (I guess that's usually what people do- hard to wear them all at the same time.) But this way there's no choosing. It's like a surprise every day. We'll see if I can keep it up.
  • It was pointed out to me that I have begun to start every sentence with the word, "so." I even find myself typing it. If you happen to experience me using the word so- please wack me.
