Happy Hour Friday

 
I am happy to have a few free moments to actually post 'happy" things.  I could be taking this time to clean my bathroom before I head off to the "grind", but I chose to be with you. 
I am happy we have had a blissful couple of weeks with  snow.  This snow has been with us since around Christmas, and it is still a pretty white.  I don't remember a winter recently with such a beautiful landscape.  I feel uplifted when there is a blanket of snow surrounding me in winter.  (please,no boo's or hisses)

I am happy that with the help of SparkPeople.com I am tracking what I put in my mouth and I have lost  about 7 pounds since New Years. I have a long long road , but I am glad for this start. I am hopeful that by losing weight my knee pain will lessen.
Since the tear in my knee in July, life has not been pleasant in the weight bearing area. I realize I am too young to be so screwed up. and I need to take control of what I can to make my life better.

I am thankful this rotten ass cold seems to be getting better.  I am a big boob when I am sick, and very whiney (can ya believe it).  I am sure that hubby will be happy it is going away, as he has graciously (he had no choice, and ignored me as much as possible) put up with my whining.

I am thankful daughter's wedding plans are falling into place. 
I am thankful that I have a job to bitch about. I am thankful I sit in maddening traffic to get to work, as that means I still have that position.  I am thankful that I have a non- stop "inbox" as that means I am needed there.  (keep saying this over and over and you will eventually believe it, I do )
I am thankful for early indications that show a turn in the economy.  I hope consumers follow the suggestion that it is, and spend.
 I have much more to be Happy About, but for now, I need to brew another cuppa Joe and get to work.


Thatssssssssssssssssssssssssss all folks!

I'm happy that you decided to let the bathroom go and blog instead. It's much better for you! I'm happy you love snow. I like it too, when I don't have to drive in it. I hope that cold continues to get better. Happy Friday.

haha I'm not sure if this happy hour really counts as Happy! It was kinda pushing it I think! But I like that you're finding the silver lining on everything. We can't all be chipper all the time.
Thanks for playing along!

I also like your ability to find the silver lining. That's something I don't always do so well. When life gives you lemons, make limoncello!

Your list is great!

7 lbs! That is great! You have reason to be happy right there.

I could do without lingering snow, but to each his own!

Lisa, 7lbs is awesome! That's a big deal! I get excited about losing 2lbs, but that's probably just me fluctuating. Keep it up though!! Let's do this! :-)
