If You List It, It Will Come... Happiness, That Is!


I've gotta be honest with you guys.  I am grumpy today.  The reasons why aren't really important, but I'm grumpy.  I hate being the bad guy.  I hate having to take away priveleges that I, personally, was looking forward to.  But, sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do, right?  So, since I'm in a grumpy funk, I thought it would be beneficial to me, to sit down and list things I am happy about.  Since Mamarazzi is hosting, you gotta know I'm gonna join in!  Once you've checked out my list, head on over to check out hers.  Then, link up yourself...it does a spirit good!

1.  Since we got our grocery shopping done last night, we were able to spend the morning playing Wii with the kids.  There is nothing better than watching Bubble jump along with Mario.  Of course, watching Boo dance around on top of a laundry basket, and Bug doing B-Boy moves as they sing "Bet on it", and "Best of both worlds", would be a close second...

2.
    Roon is letting me run away from home!  In September, Roon has to go out of town on business :( so I will be home alone with the kids for a whole week, including Labor Day.  As a reward for not killing them, not throwing a tantrum about it, accepting my responsibilities with grace and dignity, he is going to send me away from home a week after he gets home on a girls only, no kids allowed spa getaway!  WAHOO!!!  I get to spend time with my sister(s) and sisters in law, and have a break.  I know I'll miss my kids within the first hour of the flight, when I can read a book instead of referee fights, or clean up vomit, but I'll try to survive...
3.  I came up with the most fun monthly blog linky party!  I'm so excited about it!  I'm going to wait to give all the details until my blog makeover is done, but just to wet your appetites, here's a taste of what it's going to be... 

For all of you on diets, have no fear.  I'm right there with you!  This is just a hint, I promise, have I ever led you astray before?  It will be SUH-WEET!!!

Whatdaya know?! I feel better already! Thanks Mamarazzi!
