Everyday in May – Day 14 – 10 Things That Make Me Happy

10 Things That Make Me Happy

* – Venti Caramel Machiato, non fat with whip. But I will do a Grande if I must… Or a tall if pregnant.  A coffee will suffice if need be.  Maybe I’m not so picky.

* – A Nursling.  The closeness, the eye contact, the fix anything-ness, the grin that spills milk

* – A clean house.  Do I even need to say more?  Even better when it’s cleaned by ‘not me’

* – Football.  College.  SEC.  Hogs to be more precise.  Notre Dam is questionable now because of their “not exactly Catholic Catholic-ness”.  Tailgating, football parties, the prep is as much fun as the game itself.

* – My Children’s Laughter.  There is just something magical about it, especially when it’s a good ole belly laugh.  It’s infectious.  And the fact that it means they are having fun together vs attempting to kill each other, it’s always a plus.

* – Being with my husband.  I don’t care what we are doing – yard work, shopping at Lowes, watching a dude show (as long as it isn’t to crude), whatever.  I just like being around him.

*  – Vodka. Or Jager.  Or coconut rum.  Or white wine. Yup, I said it.  And apparently, I’m not to picky with this either.   It helps with the sanity.  (Funny story, I was 30 years old before it occurred to me – I can have a beer for no other reason then cause I want one.  So I did.  That’s what happens when you spend your 20’s pregnant and nursing.)

* – Blogging. I mean, really, do I have to explain?  It’s my journal.  And cheaper than therapy.

* – Our Families. The one thing we missed the most in Texas.  We don’t see eye to eye on most things, we have had our share of struggles.  But they are there regardless. 

* – My Momy Friends. Granted most of them are online, but nobody quite understands being a mom to many young ones like others that are or have been here.
