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!)
~I'm happy because...
I'm feeling considerably better!

Today is payday! 

Today is my short day at work!

Because I was feeling bad on Wednesday, I spent the evening at home with my boys so I got to spend part of their birthday with them after all!  I usually visit my mom on Wednesday evenings.

I got an 84% on my Anthropology Exam!  It brought my grade down from an A to a B but I'm ok with that - there's still time to bring it back up.

I found 2 more people for my Government study group!  We each cover one chapter and share notes from the texbook and lectures with one another.

Sadly, my betta fish passed away yesterday.  He seemed fine when I went to bed Wednesday night but was dead by morning.  I know it sounds kind of ridiculous but I miss him!  I had him for 3 years and 3 months.  I lit a candle for him yesterday.
***Note:  this is not my fish!

I thought I just had allergies and the beginnings of a sinus infection but Tuesday night I realized I had a fever which lasted through Wednesday and finally broke on Thursday.  Maybe it was just a cold.  Still have a stuffy head but I'm feeling considerably better now and slept a good portion of yesterday. I didn't miss any classes or work even though I wasn't feeling great so I'm sure my body needed the extra rest.  My boys were very sweet, they curled up with me all day.

14 showed me some love:

Sorry I've missed Half Full Friday the last couple weeks. Fridays have been busy! Sorry for your loss, and that you've been sick!

Velvet Over Steel said...

Sorry about your fish... I actually do understand as my boys each had several pets including fish, ferrets, cats, dogs, birds, mice, monkey something of other mini type of fish (in which the son that owns them cried when they died because I left the window open one night.) We felt awful with each and every pet.. no matter how big or small.

Very glad that you are feeling better and hope you're still resting this weekend!! :-)

You have a lot to be thankful for such as a payday, good grades and the boys! Sorry about the fish, I have had many pass away too. I wonder if they live a long life?

SisterGoose said...

Yay for payday and I am sorry about your fish. :(
