Why Would I Gamble? I Already Won the Jackpot!

I have been such a slacker with my Happy lists lately, but my list is so long this week, that I think it would be very selfish for me to keep it all to myself.  So, without further ado...

MY BATHROOM IS ALMOST DONE!!!  All that's left to do is hang the mirror and some shelves, so I anticipate being able to post before and after shots by the middle part of next week.  I can't wait!

Holding a sleeping baby, that doesn't belong to me.  Don't get me wrong...I LOVED holding my own babies when they were sleeping, but I don't have any anymore.  Boo is beyond the "rock me to sleep" stage, so in order to do it...I have to borrow them.  This, is "Spike", my friend, Baub's son (known as Booger Head over on her blog).  I get to babysit him about 4 hours a week, and it gives me great joy that I haven't lost the magic touch with a 4 month old.  Oh yeah...I rock!

On Friday night, we had a small gathering of friends come over for brisket and games.  The presence of 14 kids did not deter us from playing "Fact or Crap".  That is, until a toddler walked past us yelling "CWAP!"...
The evening was a success, and Roon has approved my idea to host them monthly.  Good friends and good food ALWAYS make my happy list!

Yesterday we used some free guest passes to take Baub and her family with us to Six Flags.  The kids had so much fun!  There were 8 kids between us, and the looks we got as people tried to figure out our family dynamic were priceless!  In addition, Bug was finally big enough to ride a "big" roller coaster.  3 down...1 to go!

The next few items on my list cannot be mentioned without mentioning my Roon.  HE is making all the rest of the items on my happy list possible.  I love him and appreciate him for all he does for me, without hesitation.  I really hit the jackpot when I sat next to him!


I get an entire weekend out with other women, to renew my spirit.  I just got my tickets, and cannot wait to atttend, and learn ways to  be a better wife and mother.  Just thinking about it makes me happy!

A few months ago, I mentioned the deal Roon made with me.  If I held down the fort while he was out of town on business, I could have a spa weekend with my sister.  Less than a month from now...
WATCH OUT, VEGAS!!!
