Thank god for Fridays and Happy Hours, even if it is only 8 in the morning. Thanks to Otin for the shout out on his Spotlight. Cheers to the Wiz and RxBambi for hosting Happy Hour.
Here are a few things that make me happy:
  • Dristan nasal spray - the only thing that has allowed me to sleep the past few nights
  • it's finally winter as it should be just two weeks before Christmas
  • my boys had a sleep over at their aunt & uncles last night ;)
  • the ski hills are opening tomorrow
  • we are going to a proper grown up dinner party tonight
  • snow means no more muddy paw prints on my duvet, now there are just wet spots
  • all the new shows are already in reruns so at least I can catch up on the episodes I missed (of course there were less than six episodes of some shows, what's up with that?)
  • Jen at Harried Mom gave me an award for being honest, stayed tuned for new revelations
  • finally, I think I am officially over my traditional pre-Christmas slump, thanks to Otin and Santa


  1. I totally know what you mean about the "traditional pre-Christmas slump"! Is that just a way for our bodies and minds to acclimatize? Because otherwise I don't know how we could stay so festive and cheery all season long without a break. Or is that what EggNog and rum are for? Hee hee. ;) Love the idea of Happy Hour Friday. or Happy Hour Anyday.

  2. otin (santa) is always good for that. have fun at the party...and hope you enjoyed a night withthe kids away...gramma and grandaddy are comingup tonight, so we get a little time ourselves....happy friday!

  3. I moved from my slump to panic to finally getting a start on things and now I'm in, "Hey, this isn't so bad." Happens every year.
    Enjoy your grown up evening!

  4. Wow! I hope that I really did help! :)

    Nasal spray can be a life saver.

    I wish that I still skied!

  5. Here's to grown up dinners! Lots to be happy about. Glad that Santa and Otin have helped you come out of your christmas slump. Happy Friday!

  6. I'm happy you joined HHF, and I'm also happy I found a new blog! :)

  7. Excellent 'Happy List'! :)

    I wish we had good skiing here...oh how I miss the Pacific Northwest where I grew up! PA only has molehills... ;)

    Yay for the 'grown up' dinner!

    Happy HHF a day late! :)

  8. I would also like to send a shout out to nasal spray. It's surprisingly effective stuff.

  9. Amen on the nasal spray! Good stuff. Us moms of 3 boys need all the help we can get.

    Thanks for stopping my blog. I'm really digging yours too!

  10. Wow, happy hour is great, have to do it more often. But I guess since it is Tuesday I should get a new post up. Cheers!
