There's nothing better than an unexpected good mood when you have been stuck in a funk.
Nothing monumental has occurred, I just woke up today feeling happy.
For one, here is a screen shot of the weather forecast:
Goodbye, seasonal affective disorder happy light. I won't be needing you for a while.
Second, I have a night out tonight with an awesome friend. And we are actually doing something other than getting dinner and drinks (not that I'm knocking that at all). Instead, we'll be going to Lunafest, "a traveling film festival of award-winning short films by, for, about women." Yay for something different. And if it sucks, we'll just get dinner and drinks.
And there are so many other things.
I'm having another lunch tomorrow with some incredibly talented women.
I am working again (at least, for the short term), and I'm actually liking it and basking in the distraction.
One of my best friends is coming to visit this weekend, and it has been so long since we've spent any time time together without boyfriends or husbands or kids or any other distractions. Lauren, I can't wait to see you.
Scotland is just around the corner.
I am getting more and more excited about Braden getting into this other preschool. I found out this week that the daughter of one of my closest friends also got in, meaning they could very well be in the same class. It's fate. I haven't made a decision yet, but I think I'm going to go for it. And I feel confident about it.
Through this blog, one of my long lost friends from London, who I had completely lost touch with, has found me. And she lives 20 minutes from me. We're getting together in a few weeks. How awesome is that.
I am embracing my stress related weight loss and wearing jeans I haven't worn in three years.
I'm surrounded by amazing people.
Including the two cutest boys in the world.
Spring is coming.
I feel strong.
I feel hopeful.
I feel like me.
I'm going with it.
