Half Full Friday - On A Saturday!

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 taking the annual home tour today!  I LOVE this tour!!!

I learned my crush's name!  :)

I did my speech early for Communication 101 so for the next week, I can just sit back and relax while the rest of the class does theirs.  And this speech was the reason I learned my crush's name!  :)

I got lots of birthday wishes this week!  Thanks to everyone who sent them.

While I didn't appreciate being called into work on my day off, I'll appreciate the extra money!

The rain finally seems to have stopped!

I saw a beautiful patch of rainbow this week!  It wasn't very tall but it was wide and very vibrant.

I meant to post this yesterday but I was busy, busy, busy on Thursday trying to prepare my speech (which I left to the last minute!) and didn't have time.  And then  yesterday I wasn't feeling so hot.  I kept telling myself it was nerves from having to do the speech - I'm sooooooo not a public speaker!  But I couldn't seem to shake it, even after.  When I got home from work, I checked and it turns out I had a low grade fever.  I really think I have a sinus infection and need to make an appointment to get some antibiotics.
I'm so excited for the tour of homes this afternoon!  I love going, even if I feel slightly depressed afterwards that my house isn't nearly as nice as the ones on the tour.  I haven't been able to go for the past few years because it's the same weekend one of my volunteer activities has a big retreat.  I was supposed to go this year too but told the head chairperson that I couldn't make it.

Stay tuned for Monday's post, it's Part II of my adventures with Flat George.
