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 done with school and work for an entire month!!!  Even better, I can sleep in every day!

I ended the semester with 3 A's and a B!  I met my goal of raising my GPA!!!

We had lots of yummy food at the pot luck at work yesterday!

I got a beautiful ornament from Katie's Ornament Exchange!  I'll post a picture next week.

I saw an owl sitting in one of the trees at school the other day!  Never seen one before except at the zoo; wish I'd had my camera with me.

I'm all done with my Christmas shopping!

I'm going to a Christmas party tomorrow!  One of my friends just had a baby and I'm hoping she goes too and brings the baby.  I'm kind of doubting she will though since the baby is less than a month old.

With all the time off, I can scrub my house down from top to bottom and spend tons of quality time with the boys!
*****
I got lots of cards in the card exchange this year.  Haven't opened them all yet but I'm workin' on it!  Finally got my cards yesterday so my first big project is to get them done and sent.  Some of them may be late and for that, I'm sorry.  If you sent one, I thank you and one will be on it's way to you shortly.  

I had two free sets of cards from Shutterfly but when I went to go order them, I discovered I still had to pay shipping which would have been more than what I could buy cards for at the store so I didn't get them.  I really would've liked to, but $$$ is super tight right now.  

Fortunately, I was able to pick up an extra shift Wednesday and worked 10 hours.  Usually I close but the last three days, I opened.  That meant getting up at 4:45 AM which just absolutely KILLED me!  But it's what's gonna pay the mortgage so I didn't complain.  I asked to work yesterday afternoon after my last final too but they didn't really need me so I just grazed at the potluck for an hour instead.  Because really, who doesn't like hanging out at work when they aren't being paid?  lol

I'll be around to visit everyone soon.  Sorry I've been a bad blogger lately and haven't visited as much as I would have liked.  It wasn't because I didn't want to!  Sometimes there just aren't enough hours in the day...  

14 showed me some love:

You are having a better week than me!
I am trying to follow your example and not dwell on the bad stuff though.

Congrats on the grades and I'm envious of your chance to sleep in! Aren't owls the craziest little creatures when you see them in the flesh?

What a wonderful happy list! I didn't make a happy list, but I will share a happy thing. There is a house not far from mine that decorates with Christmas lights like crazy every year. It gets bigger and bigger each year that they do it. Every time I come around that corner and see those lights, I smile! I love those lights~!

4.45 AM, that is so early it almost feels like the night before :)

But, good to get extra work when you need. Enjoy your time off. You deserve it.
