Plus receiving enthusiastic hugs from the pretty girl I’ve been crushing on…. *sigh* Yeah, Life has definitely taken an upswing lately. I think focusing on the positive has made a huge difference.

1. Husband snuggles before he had to get up for work.
2. Kitty snuggles.
3. Walking with Boo and Mom.

10. Beautiful summer evening.

Walking three miles in about an hour is great progress for me. I was able to keep a good pace with both Kidlet and Mom. I’m fast discovering that now that my body is doing so much better, it gets very unhappy with me if I have poor body mechanics. Even at the end of this evening as tired as I am, my posture was damn good. Slouching hurts. My back has been frequently reminding me for the past week or so of that. Tomorrow I’m making sure Boo and I get an earlier start in the cooler part of the morning for our walk. The heat wasn’t horrid today, but with one of my meds making me photosensitive I don’t want to risk sunburn.

PS–What brought a smile to your face today? Please share in a comment. 😀

10 Happy Thoughts, 7-22-2013

1. Kitty snuggles.
2. Visit with friends.
3. Making weekend plans.
4. Elixir of Life.
5. Being goofy with my Boo.
6. Awesome bargains at discount grocery.
7. More smoothie experimentation.
8. Having the brain hamster on a habitrail instead of a wheel.
9. Admiring a friend’s new kilt.
10. Having Husband Darling within touching distance.

The best part about the brain hamster getting off the frakking wheel and down the habitrail is finally thinking productively. I’m not churning the same thoughts repeatedly and getting nowhere. I’ve been able to figure out some the wrong turns I made in the past year or so, and how they led me to where I am now. My anxiety has also decreased a fair bit, allowing me to think more clearly. There are more changes ahead of me, but I’m not so trepidatious about them. It’s a good place to be. 😀

PS–What has brought a smile to your face today? As always please feel free to share yours in the comments.

So glad my Boo is home! She seems pretty happy to be home, too. She was wearing a long flowing skirt much like the style I typically wear. Good thing that skirt isn’t my size, or she’d be missing it next laundry day…. 😉
