Things I am happy about

Considering the week I had (didn't get the hospital job, bad back issues, another crappy snow day, my weight creeping up on me, and the continuing fun of parenting a teenager), I decided to take a page from ToDoList and blog about things that I am happy about.


  1. I have a patient and loving husband
  2. I live with two great cats
  3. Just seventeen more months until I'm vested in my organization's retirement plan
  4. Just fifteen months left until I'm plastic-debt-free
  5. I have a job that I find challenging where I am usually appreciated for my contributions, and where the benefits are pretty darn good
  6. I have an awesome collection of music
  7. I have an great collection of books
  8. I have a great memory for trivia
  9. I love movies
  10. My friendship with BriWei
  11. My other blog-friends (Barbie2Be & Summer, especially)
  12. Keeping in touch with friends from the mid-Atlantic (ChangeJunkie, Cobwebs, and D & S)
  13. Pleasant memories of people who I've parted ways with
  14. No gray hair yet (in my 46th year on Earth)
  15. Listening to audio books
  16. That I enjoy going to the gym every day during the work week. It's not just about burning calories. I also crave the mental change of pace (plus, I listen to audio programs while I'm working out).
  17. My relationship with my half-brother
  18. My relationship with my step-brother and step-father
  19. My relationship with my sister-in-law, K.
  20. I finished my taxes quickly, and I am getting a well-deserved significant refund.
  21. We just started an eight day break from our son (and he from us), by putting him on a plane to TX to visit his grandparents

Awwww...back atcha.

You're one of the few people that I really miss being so far away. I value our friendship, and I'm thrilled that you feel the same.

(I'll quit now before I get all mushy and ruin that Morticia Addams vibe I've been trying to work on.)
