things that make me happy

1. Having people at the garage where I take my car (a) know me by name when I call, and (b) let me take a car {albeit a minivan} for the day when they can't repair my car fast enough to make them happy.

2. My first full stat run at the lab reading differentials (counting white cells, red cells, platelets and such under the microscope). Finally a new skill!

3. The boys on the back of the sofa looking out the window waiting for me to come home.

4. A perfectly brewed pot of Teavana Silver Needle tea.

5. Pillar Gypsy salami from Central Market to nosh on while trying to get tired.

6. Knowing that I have friends and family that are there for me if and when I need them.

My car is still in the shop, I'm getting PMSy crampy, didn't have time to go to the gym, and (because of the car) I can't finish my Christmas shopping for my family due to lack of fundage. Things should have really sucked all day today, but for some reason I just can't get out of a good frame of mind. In the grand scheme of things, I still have it pretty good. Hope I can keep it going in the morning!

(and yes, this is the 3rd post today--3rd time's the charm!)
