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've spent the entire week doing absolutely NOTHING!!! Actually, I used the time to clean up the house a bit.
I've gotten to sleep in most days!
I'm pet sitting my dad's beagle!
My rose bushes are blooming!
The weather has been beautiful!
I've gotten some new followers recently! Welcome!
Don't forget to sign up for my Fourth Annual Doggone Dog Swap! Click on the link for details. The last time I checked, I had 8 participants and a few more who said they'd email me over the coming weekend. I got to participate for the first time last year since there was finally an uneven number and it really was a lot of fun! Who doesn't love to get mail that isn't bills or junk? And just think, you might even make a new friend!
My mom is on vacation for a week or so, so I've been pet sitting my dad's beagle. He really is a sweetheart. I'm reminded several times a day how much bigger and stronger he is than my little chi's. Since he's been here, there's never a dull moment. He and my two boys think they need to be on top of me every moment of every day. It's not so bad during the day (most of the time), but it's torture at bedtime!
I've discovered that my little Chico is apparently gay. He thinks he needs to have sex multiple times a day with Scamp. Scamp (the beagle) has been fixed, so he has no idea why Chico has been trying to mount him. I've constantly been pulling them apart. I can tell Scamp is getting fed up with Chico but he's been really patient with him. I'm going to have to give Scamp a bath before he goes home.
I'm still trying to catch up with everyone since I've been away for awhile. I've been around to almost everyone at least once, I think. If I haven't, I will be soon!
