Happy and Grateful – Day 328

November brings a chill in the air and the start of the holiday gatherings of family and friends.  I can’t believe I am down to the last two month of my challenge to find happiness and feel gratitude every day.  I hope you join with me in the comments or your own blog in this challenge.  No matter how small there is always a little good in even the worst day.

I woke up to a blinking cursor… out like a light in the middle of my post last night.  Darn fatigue!!  So let’s try to back up a few hours and get this done finally.  Oops!

It was the infamous Black Friday when hundreds stand in long lines for a chance to save a few dollars on something going on sale hours later.  …I have never understood why.  There is no sale that will get me out of sleeping and standing in the cold (although this year’s weather was unseasonably warm) at 4am.  I have always figured if I was meant to have it then it will be there when I arrive fully rested later in the day.  So I do not partake in the insanity that is Black Friday.  Most years the sales are on the same things except a few hot item toys and my daughter is well past the toy age.  So I was grateful to stay home and away from the crowds.

Actually spent a lot of the day worrying about my boyfriend who I am sure has the flu – body aches, fever and stuffy nose.  But there is no excuse on one of the busiest shopping days of the year not to be behind the register.  He did manage to make it through most of his shift and management let him leave about and hour and a half early.  He came home and just slept and took medicine.  I was happy he was able to rest fairly well all night.

Now I must get on with my day instead of sitting here all day I have things I should try to get done.  Remember to find your happiness and feel your gratitude.  Have a wonderful day/night!
