2001 started off on it’s typical dull note for me. By months end, it turned very gloomy with the my brother’s illness and passing.
After a few weeks of just general crappiness, I have sunshine in my life again:
- One of our best friends had a baby girl on monday morning. Annika Sigrund Burney, 9#, 22 inches, crop of black hair. Great fun intelligent well traveled couple. Every one is healthy and happy. I was just so damn thrilled for them.
2)Today I am suppose to receive via UPS …(drumroll please) a laptop computer. I am so very excited about this that I keep peeking out the window hoping for the big brown truck to pull into my drive way. I’m practically bursting into song, *" Oh ho the Wells-Fargo wagon is a coming down the road …" * (See #3)
Last night on cable I caught the last quarter of one of my favorite musicals, The Music Man. What an unexpected treat. ( I do own this video, but it is just not the same as a random surprise.)
I counted up all the money I’ve squirrelled away from watching a friends little one during the week ( not five days, that’s a killer) and when the visa bill comes in for the computer, I have the cold hard cash to pay it in full.God, does that feel good!
5)Something I never take for granted: my kids and ones closest to me are healthy.
What has made you happy lately?
