Happiness is ______ {Week 20} #happinessis

I really need to get better at keeping up with this.  Thankfully I just printed out this Free Blog Calendar from Stepfanies Desk!  Filling it out today but for now, lets bring on the Happiness!  Lord knows I need it.  Its been a rough few weeks!


Happiness is a quick afternoon walk/ride to grandmas.  I am so lucky to have my in laws a few blocks away. And a mother in law who will come over and take the boys when ever the boys ask.  Even the dogs love going over there.


Happiness is MAIL!  I was so excited to see these two boxes and I knew exactly what there were.  My canvases from Easy Canvas!  Post coming on them soon!  I was so excited that I didn't even notice how sad my son was because he didn't ever get any mail. Poor kid.  I need to order him a pair of shoes so I will address it to him.  Problem solved!


Happiness is when the Transplant Clinic sends me my lab orders instead of asking that I go to the Liver Clinic to do them.  My mother in law is cool with driving to the closer hospital, but the Transplant Clinic is much farther away and with way more traffic.  So this was I was able to do all my labs in one office.  One needle and Alexanders favorite....the hospital cafeteria!  That made him very happy!


Happiness is hitting my step goal by 3PM.  What happens when the school bus doesn't show up?  We walk to school.  Luckily its only about 2.5 miles round trip.  Then when you add walking around the hospital with the little one, the steps add up.  I usually hit 10,000 around bed time, so it was a happy surprise to hit them this early.  And a good wake up call that I need to get my butt moving!


Happiness is finding this pretty ladybug in the middle of my tree trimming.  We played with her for a good 10 minuets before it was back to cutting branches.  I was getting so frustrated with my over grown tree and was just about to quit when I spotted her.  Alex was complaining that he was so bored and had just about had it with being patient while I was cutting.  So she was a much needed distraction.  


Happiness is not giving up.  For me anyways, Anthony was dragging at practice.  Hopefully today will be better.  I tried to get out of going.  I was tired and not feeling well at all.  But I have yet to miss one and David knew I would be bummed.  We look forward to practices as much as the games.  So I went, and watching him, even though he struggled, made me so happy!  Happiness is soccer :)

That's all I got this week.  Be sure to stop by Crazy Adventures in Parenting and see whats making everyone else happy! What was the highlight of your week??
