A whole lot a happy

This is a week of happy.

I'm lucky to say many things have made me happy this week and there are a few happy moments up my sleeve.

First... It's Spring Break and I'm LOVING it! Time spent with my boys just makes me plain happy. No doubt about it, bring a smile to my face, happy.

So far this week we have.....

Had a movie night. "Alvin and the Chimpmunks" had us laughing out loud. It's pretty cute.
Spent a day in downtown Seattle pretending to be tourists. Always a good time.
Dug for some change and spent some time at the local arcade. Boys dig that for sure.
Put on our lovely bowling shoes and had a fun afternoon at the bowling alley. STRIKE!
Who knows what the rest of the week will bring. I'm hoping for some sunshine and more fun.

Karen's Birthday made me happy, knowing she was touched by my post made me happy, and the fact she didn't hate me for posting some photos from way back made me very happy!

Next.... My good friend, Brenda, with whom I work at the pharmacy has decided to stay and not leave to go to another pharmacy. Hip Hip Hooray for us!! I was so bummed to hear that she might take another position at a pharmacy closer to her home, but she chose to stay because she knows she's happy where she is and because her not-so-healthy father is nearby if he needs her.
I just love this gal, she makes work fun and she is so great at what she does... She is such a positive person and I think she makes me a better person just by being around her.

Today, marks the one week point for my latest push at getting healthier. My sister-in-law, Shannon, and my friend, Bill, asked if I'd be interested in joining their attempts at getting in shape. I think this was the push I needed to get me going. There is nothing more motivating than knowing you have to report to others on your progress. We all told eachother what our goals were, how we planned on achieving those goals, and then every single night we have to email our progress reports. SCARY! But, so far, it seems to be working because I'm 2.4 pounds lighter than last week and I feel better about myself and have more energy. All good things.

So... Happiness abounds and I'll bask in it's glow

More happiness to follow...check back soon to get the latest installments.
