So I think the right thing to do for Wednesday Thoughts today is to write about "things that are making me happy" rather than vent about all the things that are buggin me. (That would make for a more interesting post, but would probably lead to fighting as well, so I'll just do the happy one instead.)
I captured this wild kitty yesterday and he temporarily made my life complete until he escaped my friends arms and ran free. He was so cute!
I've decided owning a Vespa would make me happy. Random, I know.
Three members of my family just graduated! Katherine with her MFA and Polly and Dana with their bachelors degrees. I couldn't be more proud of them! And I'm really looking forward to the big graduation party we're having for them Saturday night!
This Sunday is Mother's Day! And this weekend is also my nephew's SIXTH birthday! I can't wait to celebrate both.
Last night my friend Erin came over to hula hoop outside. The weather was perfect - it was the kind of weather meant for optimal human comfort. You know - neither too hot nor too cold. Perfect spring weather. And it got me thinking about what will be appearing soon: fireflies!
Hula hooping has been making me happy lately. It's relaxing, fun, and good exercise! Win-win-win! Even my friend Adam has gotten into it. He likes it way too much when I reference him on my blog so I try not to but this is too funny not to share. After hooping a lot recently, he declared himself: "a hoopa loopa, like an oompa loompa but different."
Ok, after focusing on the positive for a bit I think I'm feeling a little better.
What's making you happy today?
