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.  And then come back here and tell me about it!

~I'm happy because...

I have a job interview next week!  Please keep your fingers crossed, because I really do not want to have to go back to my old job next semester, especially with all the new changes!

I'm getting a copy of Pip's book!  Sooooooooo excited!!!

I made an excellent dinner earlier in the week and will be making dinner for my mom on Sunday!  This is pretty big, because my usual idea of cooking is making microwave or boxed dinners.  

I got my crazy rosebush cut down more this year than I think I ever have!  Still needs a lot of work though!

Chico's vet visit went well this week!

I finally figured out what I need to do to register for an internship for credit, and figured out it's not nearly as difficult as I thought it would be!

Both of my Christmas in July participants have already sent and received their goodies!  I shared Mona and Weenie's already, I'll share Sarge's on Monday.

My poor Chico has been sneezing and reverse sneezing a lot, so I took him to the vet for a checkup.  Shiver went along for moral support, and both boys were so well behaved!  Chico thinks he needs to bark at every other animal within eyesight and once he starts up, Shiver tends to join in.  Neither of them did that this time though, and I was so proud of them both!  Neither of them made the slightest peep the whole time we were there!

The vet didn't have much to say about Chico.  He just said that there must be something in the air that was irritating poor Chico's little nose.  I told him that I remembered bringing the boys in for their annual shots a few years ago.  The vet sprayed some kind of liquid stuff in Chico's nose and he reversed sneezed the rest of the time we were there.  The vet at that time commented on how that was a sign of allergies and suggested that Chico needed some allergy meds.  I did not get any medication at that time simply because I knew he was doing that because of the medication he'd just been given in his nose.  (I can't remember what the liquid was or why they put it in his nose.)  The vet this time insisted yet again that there wasn't really anything to do for the reverse sneezing.

The vet told me to give Chico 15mg of liquid Benadryl and to buy a vaporizer and use it.  So that's what I did.  It's funny how Chico was so quiet the whole time we were at the vet's office, yet the second we stepped outside, he was reverse sneezing again.  The Benadryl seems to have helped.  We haven't tried the vaporizer yet.  I'm just thankful that he's OK.

Poor Chico. I have seasonal allergies too and I have been sneezing a bit more lately. The benadryl really helps. I love the idea of the Half Full Friday...see the glass half full and stay happy!
