The Good In Life

Okay I admit that there is some good in my life even if I am for the most part choosing to wallow in my own self pity (cough, Holly, cough! ps - she has the cutest kids/husband/life).

So an overview of the good.

I have my health. That is the one that everyone starts with right? But you see in my family its something of a rarity. Just last year in the span of 4 months my mom had a heart attack and then a bout with diverticulitis. So the fact that for the most part I am in tip top shape is something to celebrate.

I have a job I enjoy that has an amazing perk attached that is a fabulous distraction for me on a regular basis.

My pets are amazing. I have 2 dogs and a cat you have heard about a couple of times. They bark, they shed, they keep me company. Plus they have proven that if they leave me...they come back.

Friends. I have a great support system of friends; those that I talk to daily and those I hadn't talked to in years. Yet, they have all come together and been there for me; phone calls, texts, sleepovers, cards and prayers. I couldn't ask for more.

My sister and my kind of sister. My two most favorite people in the world.

Books & Magazines. Seriously, I could do nothing but read for the next 3 weeks and still have material left over. I love reading so I assure you this is a positive.

My upcoming trip to Clear Lake for the 4th and the following long weekend in Colorado. Not a work trip for once! I am driving with my best friend so that her grandma can spend time with her family. Two things to look forward to, Nordstrom Rack and hiking at Breckenridge. Now if I can just find a way to get back here in the winter for snow skiing I will be a happy camper.

And yes, I may just to go to Hawaii for a friends wedding in September. I am just trying to prioritize this trip in with all of the things I have to think out in the near future; buying a new house means closing costs and down payments and the purchase of horse just means money down the drain.

But a week on the beach? That does sound nice. Very nice.


  1. That's my girl! See, SO much good in your life! Not saying you don't deserve to have a pity party (God knows I have had my fair share), but you sounded so sad, I thought it was time for an intervention! :)

  2. At least you didn't witness yesterday's bathroom incident! and go to hawaii.
