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 go back to school next week!

I got my student loan yesterday!  

I ordered some textbooks yesterday and will be picking some up later today!

Just found out I made the Dean's Honor List last semester!  

I got an award!   

I got Kimberly's giveaway prize!  It's a coupon for a free Farm Rich product.

I'll finally be getting my brakes fixed on Monday!

I got my square done for the Fearless Five quilt!

I'll be hosting another giveaway on Monday!  
I can't believe it's been a month since last semester.  Wow, that time flew by!  I've been a big bum this entire month and have gotten very little accomplished that I wanted to.  This past week has been even worse.  I've spent it mostly watching tv or online which really only makes the day go that much faster.  About the only productive thing I've done this week was to clean my carpet.  And then it took me several days to move the furniture back!  Because I had no real incentive and just didn't feel like it...

My camera has been charging for a week now.  It's been sitting on my counter untouched so I still need to take pix of the chi's.  And my square.  And my Christmas swap gift.  I was supposed to do a post on my swap and have been too lazy to even do that.

I think my problem is that I'm sad to be going back to school.  Don't get me wrong, I'm excited but I'm going to miss spending all day with the boys.  I love them with all of my heart and have thoroughly enjoyed this time with them.  I only work 3 days this semester so that'll help, at least!
My new bloggy friend Ruby was kind enough to give me an award!  I never think I'm worthy of them so am always surprised when I get one.  Thank you, Ruby!  I'm honored.   

If you haven't checked out her blog, be sure to do so.  She's an excellent artist!
According to's translator, liebster is German for "dearest."  

The rules for this award are simple:  award it to 5 other upcoming bloggers with less than 200 followers.  However, as discussed above, I'm very lazy.  I'm not in the mood to see how many followers everyone has.  Plus I know several of you already have this award.  So....if you want it, take it.  And if you don't, that's ok too!

School already, brakes, but the Dean's list is the best

First of all....CONGRATS on making the Dean's Honor List, way to go!!!

I have a hard time going back to work at the end of my vacations. I never go anywhere, they're always staycations, which means I spend most of the days with Chewy & Lilibell, and it kills me to leave them to go back to work! Then I spend the first couple of days back missing them like crazy :( Heck, I miss them right now and can't wait to go home!

Congrats on the Dean's Honor List!! So awesome and well deserved for all your hard work!!

I understand about going back to school. The college I work at closes for 2 weeks over Christmas and New Years each year; nice but always hard to go back. This year of course I was lucky to get the break paid for between jobs at the college. So happy about that.

I extremely Happy & relieved that you're getting your brakes fixed on Monday!! I had not forgotten that you needed new ones.

Have a Great new start to your new classes & new semester!!
