No sparkling huge news to report just this second, but I thought for the sake of trying to keep warm in this godawful January weather, I would post a few random happy things:
-I helped organize a retirement party for a coworker friend. Despite someone sending me emails panicking about the fact that it was at the exact same time as some other work function, it was a huge success. My friend thanked me three times and gave me big hugs. There was a bit of stress organizing and a small organizer power struggle, but in the end he really loved his party and felt loved, so yay!
-Yesterday morning a coworker marched up to me and said: “Holy crap, you are photogenic! Did you see the photos of you at the retirement party? Gorgeous.” To answer her question, yes, I have seen the photos and grimaced afterwards. I thought I looked so out of place and awful in those photos, so hearing her kind words made my morning.
-Despite the fact that it kinda sucks, I have been getting up an hour early twice a week to work out before work. It’s sweaty, groggy craziness and I am going to up it to three times a week!
-That same complimenting coworker left a cheese scone from Herb and Spice on my desk. Clearly the woman is awesome!
-Skyping with Travis last night! Hi Travis!
-With the Comic Book Shoppe gift certificate Hubby gave me, I bought two great new comics-Sweet Tooth and Fables. I really liked both, but may spend the rest of the certificate on more Fables issues. If you haven’t heard of them, they are a grown-up twist on beloved children fairy tales. Great stuff!
-I designed three wine bottle labels and am pleased with the results. They almost look professional!
What are some recent happy/positive events in your life?
