Let’s Go

Hurry up Mom.  The movie is gonna start soon.

Relax Monica, we will have plenty of time to get there.

But this is the premiere and I have waited years for this book to become a movie.  There will be a ton of people there.

Ok, but remember we have tickets already, so it is not like we are not going to get in to see it.  And if the snack bar line is too long, you can go ahead into the theater without me. I am ready though, so we can go now.

Thanks Mom, I just can’t wait!

W is for writer

This letter was kind of a no-brainer.  I wouldn’t be here if I didn’t write.  I wouldn’t put words out there if I didn’t want them read.  So I am a writer.  Now I would LOVE to be a paid writer some day, but for now I am happy that I can connect with one or two people here with my blog.

I have been writing poems off and on since I was in junior high school.  I have always found it somewhat therapeutic to get the sad, mad or glad feelings out on paper… especially the sad ones.  If not the thoughts just fester and it is no good for anyone.

My dream would be to have a book of poems with some pictures I have taken.  But I am too unsure of my writing to take the plunge and put my words up for criticism.  The blogging community has been so kind to me I feel really comfortable here.  I am a writer.  Come read with me.

Happy and Grateful – Day 206

July brings fireworks, picnics, pools and air conditioning.  It is a time for those of us in the USA to celebrate our “birthday” and a personal time for me to celebrate life.  It is hot and humid days and thunderstorms cooked up at night.  I am continuing my challenge to find happiness and gratitude in every day.  Join along in the comments or on your own blog.  There is always good in every day.

The forecast was wrong.  It got warmer than they said and more humid again too.  I swear that is the only job where you can be wrong a good percentage of the time and still keep your job.  But I survived it and am so ready for the rain that is supposed to come tomorrow.

A strange day where I got very little sleep between phone calls and people knocking on my door… oh well, maybe I will sleep better tonight.  I did take about a half an hour this morning to finish the book I just couldn’t stay up and finish last night.  I was grateful my daughter recommended it to me.

Just a little bit ago I got an email from a friend of mine.  It is always good when I hear back from my friends, it makes me happy.  She had good news too about some financial matters that had concerned her.  It turned around enough she was even able to get the used car she was looking at upgrading to.  That news made me very happy.

I need to try to make up some sleep hours now… I know it doesn’t really work that way but I will be happy if I can get a full 5 hours before I have to get up to take my boyfriend to work.  I can always go back to sleep for a little more rest as long as the phone is quiet and nobody stops by.  May you have a wonderful night/day!  Keep looking for happiness!

Day 83 – 100 Days of Happiness

I have sat here watching the cursor blink off and on for far too long with no clear direction in mind.  There are a lot of little moments of happiness but not any one thing that stands out better than the rest.

  • I took my car to the repair shop to get my door replaced… got a nice little Camry to drive until it is fixed.
  • The snow that fell yesterday all melted away today.
  • I got a book in on hold at the library I have been looking forward to reading
  • I made it to an Al-anon meeting and saw some people I haven’t seen for a while
  • I got a text from a friend I hadn’t heard from in a while
  • Finally made plans with my daughter to get together for lunch this week

All good things, but not one that stands out.  I could even add the adorable smile from a cute little girl at the library who was waiting with her mom when I walked in.  Happiness some days is all around us in small but wonderful doses.
