Maybe it's the weather?  
But several of my friends have commented that they are feeling blue today. I'm in a little bit of a funk myself, to be honest!

Let's cheer up ourselves and each other!

List 3 things that make you happy - from today, yesterday, last week. Add pictures if you want. Do it on your own journal. Post them here as comments.

We all struggle. And sometimes we have to be reminded of the Happies in our lives.

I'll start:

1) I had coffee with my BFF tonight. I haven't seen her in 5 months maybe. (Boring, inconsequential reasons precluded us from getting together.) It was as though not one minute had gone by since I last saw her.

2) The dogs spread flour all over the living room. I used the vacuum cleaner to get it up. Doesn't sound like anything happy but we kill vacuum cleaners. (Something about 6 dogs?) The flour was all cleaned up in just a few minutes!

3) Tuny Fish Episode:


Bonus #4) I watched a couple of episodes of I Dream of Jeannie on youtube. It is absolutely adorable. Ridiculous but adorable. It was such a more "innocent" time then!

What are the happy things in YOUR life???

1 - I love the M&M's and my all time favorite commercial is aired at this time of the year. It's the one with the M&M's and Santa....LOVE IT! Saw it for the first time this year during the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade.

2 - Dunkin Donut's Mocha Mint Coffee....it's the little things in life the make smile. When I was at Dunkin' this weekend they had the k-cups and if you guessed I grabbed a box, and of course I paid for it ;-), you'd be right.

3 - Your tag says it...friends are the icing!

Tuny Fish......I will never tire of seeing those screencaps!

Thank you for these reminders!! Dunkin Donuts has the best coffee in the world!! And make sure you put your coffee under the spout before pressing the brew button! (That's the order your sister discovered works best, right? :-)

M&Ms win every time!!!

Hope today is a good one for you!!

LOL and yes that is the best order when using the Keurig! You know we've been joking about that.

Love, love the M&Ms and have a few t-shirts from the M&M Store in Times square and also very comfy pj's too that I have been wearing again since the weather is cold.

Thank you and hope your day is going good as well.

Three things that make me happy right now
Thanks for making me take a moment to count my blessings - I've got a lot of stress in my life right now, courtesy of work (too many things that need to be done and not enough people to do them all), and it's all too easy to get overwhelmed by it all.

So, my three things:

1. My kids. I have two smart, healthy, happy, beautiful kids who are growing up into kind and interesting people with interesting thoughts and opinions in their heads. They're not perfect (who is?) but they're good people and I love spending time with them.

2. The fact that I'm actually able to look forward to things again. I had a bad bout of depression last year, and even when I started to come up out of it this year if felt as though the joy and colour had been sucked out of my life. But I've been doing some work with a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist over the last 6 months and slowly but surely it's made a big difference. I'm not freaking out over my workload, and I'm looking forward to things (even Christmas, which I haven't done for many years!). D and I are going to London this weekend and staying in a posh hotel, and I'm *so* looking forward to having a weekend away with lots of treats and no chores to do - and I'm happy that I'm looking forward to it.

3. These guys. Because Alex is beyond gorgeous and S3 is giving me S1 feels all over again :)

Re: Three things that make me happy right now
These are awesome reasons to be happy! Counting our blessings is so important and we so often forget to take the time to do it!

I love the way you describe your children!! they're good people and I love spending time with them. They were obviously well-raised!!

Yes, Season 3 is shaping up to be the come-back we all hoped for!!!

Thank you for helping spread the cheer!

Three things that make me happy
Thanks for going this:

Three things that have made me happy:

1. Going to see the Rockettes Christmas show at the Radio City Music Hall in NYC with my family. We all had an awesome time together, watching the show and just hanging out together, walking around the city. It was a truly lovely day.

2. My family. I am blessed to have had two excellent parents who set a good example (living a life with integrity, being kind to others) for my brother and I and I’m proud to say that my niece and nephew are following in their footsteps.

3. My job. I know I complain a lot about my pseudo boss, the erstwhile Uncle Johnny, but I look around at the unemployment numbers and I can’t help but be grateful that I am employed and that it’s so close to my home.

Bonus: I love that S3 of H50 has been so excellent and that the quality of the episodes keeps improving and I’m also loving Elementary and that we get to see such a different and modern take on the Holmes/Watson relationship.
