"The sun shines and warms and lights us and we have no curiosity to know why this is so; but we ask the reason of all evil, of pain, and hunger, and mosquitoes and silly people." ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Unlucky/Lucky I guess it's all in how you look at it right!

Today's gonna be a good day...yes today's gonna be a good good day.

That is what I am singing to myself this morning because isn't half the battle in your mind most the time.

So far this week I felt as though I could fall asleep on the way TO work, I'm just so tired!
Monday I escaped a possibly very bad accident with a "nudge" and a few paint scrapes on my bumper.
Tuesday ended with a warning ticket for going 50 in a 35mph (okay no one goes 35 on 3rd ave so don't be thinking JEEZ-O Jen)
and I've had no computer for 2 days at work.
Mark was home all day yesterday and accomplished (in my opinion only) nothing (as in laundry not put away, dishes not washed etc) I stayed up and did such tasks and went to bed at 11pm. blucky.

That would be Monday and Tuesday which brings me to this morning:  It's only Wednesday??
I got up at 5:30 and went for a walk. Isn't exercise suppose to give you more energy? Make you happy?! Endorphins?! Right?!
I am slapping a flower in my hair ~because who doesn't look happy when they have a flower in their hair
and I am packing swim suits so the kids and I can go to the water park after work
(this is preplanning here as I know I may be a bit "short" or "edgy" this evening so if we go to the pool the kids are spared my mood, we don't have to fight over going outside after work, because they want to and I think it's too hot and heck I just might have fun!)
...and I am fighting the urge to whine and whine and whine, but it's so hard sometimes! ~sigh

Today's gonna be a good day.......yes today's gonna be a good good day!

Let us rise up and be thankful, for if we didn't learn a lot today, at least we learned a little, and if we didn't learn a little, at least we didn't get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn't die; so, let us all be thankful. ~Buddha

So go forth and be happy.

update: Negative: Make that day 3 and no computer.
Positive: Coworker says you look so summery and happy today (check check: flower in hair does indeed create the illusion of happiness!)

Still in shock Jennifer!!!! and what a warning for going 50 mph. Did you cry or what?

Nah I was pretty sure it was going to be a ticket! I just handed over the papers and said "sure is a hot one today." It was one of those moments when you're like "of course I would get pulled over today!" sigh
