Happy Thoughts.

I'm feeling rather hateful at the moment.  Harsh thing to say, but also true.  This usually happens when I don't receive a particular grade I was hoping for, almost always when this particular grade is on a paper.  This morning I woke up early to take my final exam and worked through it with an unfortunate pounding headache.  Received said paper, growled at grade, then came home and let Mable out.  Of course  she stepped in her own poop (time to shovel, John!) and then ran upstairs before I had a chance to wipe it off her paws and jumped all over my white bedspread.  Not exactly the best morning.  All I can say is that I hope my husband's morning is going a bit more smoothly seeing as he's currently in a med-school interview.  Phew.

It is frustrations (and anxieties) like these that lead me to declare that it is time for some Happy Thoughts.  So, without much ado, I'm going to declare a few of mine, in the hopes that it'll cheer me (and maybe you) up.  Here goes.

1. I'm going to have a new nephew in exactly four days.  And then I'm going to get to meet him very soon.

2. I'm not always miserable and Mable isn't always a total disaster...

in fact, sometimes she melts my little heart.

3.  This house is a happy thought.  Especially the light fixtures & the outdoor fireplace.

4. Scotland scenery is a happy thought.

6. Christmas and New Years, aka: the best occasions to wear sparkles.

7. Christmas decorations = mega happy thought (& sight).  And Christmas is right around the corner!

8. Despite major and minor frustrations, there's a lot of love in my life.  So, that's my last (and best) happy thought.

I think it is working.  What are your happy thoughts?  What do you think about to get back in a good mood? I'd love to know!

I don't know in which class you received a less than desirable grade- but it most certainly couldn't have been WRITING! Miss Annie, you have a true gift & my 'happy thought' is that some day I'll be proudly saying: "I knew her when...".

My happy thought: having you in our family.

Yes, lately I have had more than my share of bad luck and it seems to pile up. Then there's the weather (climate change?) and politics. Cooking helps to cheer me up, but my stove is broken and they don't know if they can fix it! However, having friends and family who love you is the number 1 happy thought. And having a warm place to live is another. Also, the library.
