Happiness Is…

-My NaNo word count is 6854.  I’m finally ahead of where I need to be in order to finish by the end of the month.

-My birthday is in twenty days!  I love my birthday!  I like celebrating that I’ve been given another year of life.

-There was snow this weekend, but it wasn’t too terrible.  Plus, the snow covered trees were super pretty.

This afternoon I got a call, and during the conversation I was asked, “How would you like to be able to go home for Thanksgiving?”  All I could do in response was cry and mumble through my tears, “I’d…really *sniff*…likethat.”

In less than a month I’ll be home.

Things have been so overwhelming these last few weeks, just knowing that I’ll get to be home for Thanksgiving and my birthday suddenly made things seem a little less overwhelming.  I just gotta get through the next 29 days.

I can do this.

Okay, I’m not going to lie.  I’ve been feeling a bit down in the dumps this week.  A combination of things just put me in a funk, and to top it off I ended the week with what I’m assuming is either a mild case of food poisoning or the flu.  This led to me not wanting to write a happy list tonight.  However, the whole reason I started the Sunday night happy list was to remind myself of all the things (big, small, or completely pointless) that I’m thankful for.  So, onto the list…

-Clean showers.  Living in a co-ed dorm, using a shower that so many other people use, I’ve gained a new respect for the clean shower at home.  At home, I don’t have to worry about what nasty, unknown bacteria is lurking in the shower with me.

-Clean water.  There’s really no logic to this one, other than the fact that as I was trying to hydrate today it really hit home that having clean water is an incredible gift.

-The return of fall t.v.  I admit it, I’m a couch potato.

-This is my 61st post.  I’m really excited that I’ve managed to post something everyday since I set out on this blogging journey.  I don’t exactly have a good track record when it comes to sticking with things I start.

-Having hair.  Even though my hair is ridiculously frustrating, I really appreciate that I have hair.
