Making Me Happy Monday

Welcome to yet another edition of "Making Me Happy Monday"! These weekly entries seem to come so quickly!

And, I am ashamed to admit that I missed last week. Due to sheer chaos in this house paired with the fact that there wasn't a ton of stuff on my happy list.

However, I am back, and determined that no matter what is going on in my life, I will make it a priority to find at least one thing that is making me happy each Monday. Luckily, this week I've got a few!

1) The Tummy Tornado swept through and took Hubby prisoner, but it did not go full-blown. Luckily, it seems to have been a 24 hour thing and Hubby is already feeling much better (knocking wood and crossing toes as I type).

2) The Mad Hatter and I had a wonderful weekend! Saturday (while Daddy worked and Mommy played tax widow) we had an impromptu playdate with a very good friend and her two adorable kiddos, and Sunday we spent the afternoon at the beach with Sweetheart and Poppy! We were busy and exhausted, but had so much fun!

3) The weather got into the very low 50's this weekend - could it possibly be that spring might make an appearance this year after all??

4) Hubby and I had a date on Friday night. Yes, it took place at Temple for a multi-congregation Board Members dinner and Friday Night services, but we had a babysitter and there were no children in attendance. And there was wine.

5) My new Blackberry phone! Or should I say Crackberry? I got the Storm and HATED it. After one week and much deliberation over whether I could learn to love it (I couldn't), I traded it in last night for the Curve and I am one happy girl. Hubby thinks he's going to find me walking around with my iPod Touch in one hand and the Crackberry in the other. He might know me a little too well.

6) Trader Joe's. Before we got ours a few months ago, the closest one was a 45 minute drive to MA. And I did it. But now. I can go ANY TIME I want. And this may not be a good thing for my wallet, not to mention my waistline. But everything I find there is so wonderful! My latest discovery addiction: Vanilla Joe-Joe's (thanks Elaine!). I'm pretty sure Elaine likes the chocolate ones, but I bought vanilla because MH prefers it to chocolate. I think I've eaten far more than she has. If I don't stop eating them I may just turn into one!

7) Drugs. Thanks to the addition of prescription strength Zantac to my already rather large dose of prescription Prilosec, I no longer feel like I have a hole burning through my throat. Yes, this is just a band-aid, and I have to see a gastroenterologist (which is most definitely not on my happy list), but the fact that I am not spending 24 hours a day in severe pain is a definite improvement from last week.

8) My godparents' daughter (and dear friend of mine) finally gave birth to her baby on Thursday morning (she was pretty overdue) - an absolutely GORGEOUS little girl with the most beautiful name and fullest head of hair I've ever seen on a newborn. Even better? My godparents' son and his wife had a little boy just 6 weeks ago - how amazing to become grandparents twice-over in such a short period of time, and get both a perfect little boy and girl?

9) MindJolt games on Facebook. This is going to be my demise. If I thought I wasted enough time playing on the computer before, I am in serious trouble now. But oh, what fun (and challenge) it will be going down!

Oh my gosh. We were typing our posts at the same time! And we both ended up with 9 things. I think we're on the same wavelength, which has to be about 3000+ miles long. I hope you liked the present I sent you in your e-mail ;). (The way I use those, is to just copy the pic and save it, and then just select it, and link it with the dohicky in the post box, like you would highlight and link a name. Clear as mud, huh?)

These are all great!

And p.s. I acutally like the vanilla Joe Joe's better than the chocolate ones. Crayz, huh?

I'm curious to know what your friend named her baby. That kind of stuff is on the brain these days... ; )
