Half Full Friday

Half Full Friday is a series of weekly posts that Eyegirl originally started in June 2009.  We believe that a lot of our happiness is determined by our attitude about the things that happen to us.  So by participating, I'm deciding to see the glass as half full instead of half empty; I'm choosing to concentrate on the positives instead of dwelling on the negatives.  The Half Full Friday posts are a way to do just that.  They're a list of the things in my life that have brought me happiness over the past week.  I'm determined to find something good in each day.  Are you?

For the next week, I'd like to challenge each of you to keep a list of at least one thing that brought you happiness each day.  Be sure to link up here once you've posted your list!  (This isn't a blog hop so please only link up if you've participated by posting your happy list. Thanks!)

My dad gave me chocolates for Valentine's Day and my mom got me Peeps!

One of my friends and I went out to dinner together on Valentine's Day!  We decided we'd be each other's Valentine since neither of us is in a relationship.

The restaurant gave us heart balloons!

I got a very pretty scarf in the mail from Amber today!  Thanks, Amber!
All the snow we've gotten in the last three days has melted quickly!

I have a four day weekend!!!

Yes, four glorious days to do whatever my heart desires!  I cannot even begin to tell you how happy this makes me.  I need those days off just to recover from the week I've had.  Monday, I had a test.  Wednesday, I had to lead a discussion in History.  I'm soooooooo not a public speaker!  But it earned me 20 extra credit points so I did it.  Today, I took 2 tests and have one more to take online before midnight tonight.  It's open book, open notes so I'm not too worried about it. It's timed though. 

One of the tests I took today - I'm kind of pissed about it.  The professor gave us a study guide on Monday.  I spent literally the entire day yesterday studying for this stupid test.  And you know what?!  The majority of what she told us to study was not even on the friggin' test!  As I drove to school this morning, I was trying to go over the terms and stuff in my head and my mind just drew a blank.  I was so freaked out about it because the professor likes to use big words and my simple mind doesn't always immediately comprehend them so I wasn't sure what to expect since I knew we'd have at least one essay question.  (Turns out there were 6!)  I feel like I did ok though - it was easier than I expected.  Not to say that it was easy because it wasn't but it was easier than what I thought it'd be.  I'm not going to get too cocky though because I thought my Government test was easy too and I only got a 70% on it, even after studying!

My main plan for the weekend is just to relax and spend some quality time with my chi's.  Hopefully I can catch up on some of the sleep I've missed out on from all the stress this past week.  I also want to catch up with all of my online friends.  I've missed having time to do that every day.  I should probably do some housework too.  And of course, there's the homework.  Never ending mounds of homework...

Woof! Woof! Being Thankful n grateful for the "little" things is precious. I'm aware that I bring happiness everyday to my family.
RELAX for the weekend is good. School work can be tedious n takes a lot of time ... just take it easy n try to enjoy it to make it easier. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

I hope you're enjoying your long weekend! The first two days here were SO warm but yesterday cooled down and today is not looking any warmer! Easing us back into the regular week ahead, I guess!

Thanks for all your comments. :) I'm on the same page as you with regard to babies growing into children. I'm not sure about how it will be when the baby is no longer a baby but... I have to believe I'll be more comfortable with my own child. LOL I hope!

Happy Monday!
Jill (Zona's Mom)
