Happy Blogging

I’ve been in a bit of a slump lately.  I’m not sure why but I imagine it has something to do with the dreary end of winter, fighting with the hubs and a bad bowling stint that left me with scores not even in the 90s.

Then I woke up this morning and it all changed.  For one, I woke up and said to myself Today is going to be a great day! 

That doesn’t always work for me, and I can’t stand people that insist waking up on the right side of the bed guarantees you a fab day.  Maybe for you, but not me.  I encounter wayyy too many idiots in my day for that to happen.

But I am working on that and realize that my attitude affects a lot of people, mainly those closest to me or the poor unfortunate soul who cuts me off in traffic and ends up with a middle finger.

So after having a pity party the last couple days week I woke up this morning and resigned to turn it around.

“IT’S GOING TO BE A GREAT DAY!”  I jumped from the bed and started singing and dancing in an imaginary musical, a la Glee.

Hahaha, um, no.  But, I did say to myself that enough is enough.  It’s time to remember all the good I have in my life, to be thankful for it and to stop being such a crab!

The sun is shining bright, and here in Chicago we are having a 50-degree morning on this fabulous Leap Day, so it doesn’t get any better than that.

Tonight I am attending an event with a friend called Vino van Gogh at Ivy Restaurant.  I’m hoping to blog about our adventures of painting like Van Gogh and drinking vino, ooh la la, my fave.  You know Friend didn’t have to twist my arm for that one. 🙂

Then I come into work, albeit 7 minutes late due to the Chiquita’s diaper explosion – but I resigned to not let it ruin my day – and I receive this email:
