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 on your own blog.  Thanks!)

My mom brought over some super yummy cupcakes a few days ago!

I had fun window shopping earlier this week!

I'm going on the Garden Tour tomorrow!  We try to go every year.

I got a new follower!  Welcome!

My volunteer project is done!  We'll meet up to discuss what went well and what didn't, but for the most part, we're pretty much done until next year.

I apologize for not being around Blogville much lately.  I'm going through a very stressful situation right now and I try to keep this blog positive for the most part, so I've kept away.  I really missed everyone, and hopefully you missed me too.  At least a little bit!  I'll try to do better.

I start class on Monday.  It's a one week class from 9:00 AM to 9:00 PM.  Apparently, the class is broken down into three sections per day, so it's not just a straight 12 hour lecture.  It's about the history of the capital.  We're going to be taking a lot of field trips and doing activities and stuff.  The class description sounds like a lot of fun, so I'm looking forward to it. 

With that being the case, I'm not sure how often I'll be around next week.  We supposedly have time in between sections of the class.  I'm bringing my laptop and hoping I can use some of that free time to catch up with everyone.

It's almost June 30th, so if you haven't gotten your goodies shopped for and sent out, you only have 8 more days to get on that!  Don't forget that you'll need to email me and your partner your tracking number.  There are a few of you who aren't included in this rule, and you know who you are.  I haven't heard from most of you.  Remember too, if you accept a package but don't send one out, you'll be outed and blacklisted from joining in the future.

Last year, I posted links as they became available.  I was thinking this time I would post them all at once.
