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 back!  The semester from hell has ended!!!  :)

Not only did I not lose any followers while I was away, I actually gained one!  

I got a free tank of gas!  I think someone must have paid my bill by mistake.  

The weather is beautiful outside and I actually have time to enjoy it!  

I can sleep in for a bit now!!!  Sooooooooo not a morning person!

I can visit everyone regularly again!  I made the rounds to some of you earlier this week and will be around some more this weekend!
I apologize for taking such a long break.  I didn't intend to; it just worked out that way.   This was a very stressful, anxiety filled semester which made me question myself way too many times.  It started out bad from the very first day and didn't seem to get much better as it went on.  I did make some really great friends though and only hope I can stay in touch with at least some of them.  So, I guess it wasn't all bad!  :)

I had 3 back-to-back finals scheduled on Monday.  I barely saw the light of day this past weekend.  Still waiting to find out how I did.  The one exam that was the most difficult is the one I studied for the most and I feel like I did the worst on it.  It was really brutal!  Keeping my fingers crossed that the professor uses a pretty big curve.

I've signed up for a couple of summer classes which sound fun.  It's actually one class with 2 parts.   It's about the state capital history and apparently, it includes field trips and activities.  Each class is only a week long.  Class meets 3x a day and concludes with a research project.  When the first class is over, I'll have a week off and the second one will begin.  That'll get me 6 credits so it'll be worth it.  I'll have the rest of the summer off with the exception of a weekend workshop.  

No matter what else happens, I'll need to find a summer job.  My current one only lasts for the regular academic school year.  I don't have enough in savings to carry me through the summer so I have to work.  Hoping to find something part time so I can spend more time with the chi's.  I've missed them and I know they've missed me too.  Even though I worked less hours this semester, it seemed like I was gone so much more.  

I haven't had time to try to upload pix of the boys onto my laptop but I'll get on that soon.   

Stop by on Monday for an official announcement about the Doggone Dog Swap!  

10 showed me some love:
