Head Soup

I've sat here for an hour trying to think of something to say. But the contents of my head just slosh around, without anything of substance bobbing to the surface. I feel happy and stupid. I wonder if this is what a worm feels like. If you Google it, the majority of people think humans are the stupidest animals on the planet. But if that's true, can we trust the judgement of the STUPIDEST animals on the planet? Maybe the people who are voting don't count themselves. They're probably the ones who voted humans as the smartest animals on the planet, too. How can we be both?! I'm so confused.

We should ask the worms what they think.

I can't put a finger on my happiness. It jumps around, making it impossible to trace where it came from. Maybe I'm happy because it's Friday, or because I've started exercising at lunch. I've been eating better too. Well, when I'm not binging on free cake. Hoop and I have had some really nice evenings at home playing with the Wii, cooking dinner together, and watching the fourth season of The Office. Maybe I'm happy because I realized today that it's been 1 year since I quit smoking. A YEAR! I decided to celebrate the milestone by purchasing a set of really expensive/frivolous tickets to Halloween Horror Nights.

Have I mentioned that I've been saving my money up for a wedding? Yeah, those things are pretty expensive. Who knew? Now I've gone and dipped into the kitty. But it's justified, right? After all, I've saved $1,387.17 by not smoking, AND going to Halloween Horror Nights has become somewhat of a tradition. It's where Hoop proposed to me last year. Also, the theme this year is twisted fairy tales. I get antsy just thinking about it! Maybe there are a few reasons I'm happy today and not just one. Whatever it is, I hope it stays. I could use a little stretch of happiness and good will.

So tell me, what do you have to be happy about today?

Have a great weekend Homebloys!

I'm happy because tonight i'm going out with girlfriends and watching halfnaked buff firemen strut their stuff while competing to see who gets to be in the calendar.

I'm also happy because Sunday we are heading back to Great Wolf Lodge to surprise the kiddos for Daynah's 8th birthday....

Baby, Happy 1 Year Anniversary of being a non-smoker.

I hope you don't go the way of the evangelical non-smoker and start preaching to the ones who still smoke . . . those folks are awful. Even though I'm an ex-smoker there is something about being preached at makes me wanna poke those people in the eye.

Anyway, it is so nice to read about your good mood.

I for one am thrilled you a sloshy and giddy. I wish I could be a worm. My head is swimming but it's mostly due to an excess about of snot. Not good.

Those are good reasons for happiness, Tink!

I'm happy because we are having some lovely rain & breezes, compliments of Hanna-who? (which means, no power outtages! Woohoo!) and it is the weekend. Dh let me sleep in until I woke at 11am.

It's like Halloween Horror Nights was made just for you this year!

I'm happy your happy.

I'm happy that my house is actually clean and I'm in a reading groove and that my kids are happy. Yeah.

 
At 06 September, 2008, Blogger Maggie said...

UGH

I'm happy you're happy. Jeezus.

 
At 06 September, 2008, Blogger Eileen said...

I think under the circumstances you can justify Halloween Horror Night on the basis of it being Romantic, and Romantic is important just before a wedding, isn't it? (I can't remember - I was too Morning Sick at the time...)

 
At 06 September, 2008, Blogger Ginni Dee said...

One year!! Wow...that's great! You should be extremely proud of yourself and you totally deserve the tickets. It sounds like a fun time and worth it!

JFTR, I came here to read a good blog...mine is so sucky today because I couldn't think of anything to write. I am getting so burned out on this freaking Blog365 thing. Have to blog everyday and some days I just hate it. ICK!!

The two oldest boys came home from college for the weekend. Did I tell you how proud I am that you've quit smoking?

I hope the whole weekend was great :)

I love the idea of asking worms what they think.

congrats on the not smoking anniversary - that is a major accomplishment
