Get Happy Challenge: Day ?? I think I messed up on counting.

So... here we are on day #...... whatever it is.

It's been a rough few days, I have to admit. The weekend was hard to control my emotions since I've been without Lexapro. I had to keep re-adjusting my attitude. One minute I was overwhelmed with joy and love... the next I wanted to eat my joy (child) and love (hubs).

Since school has started, the little has developed a REALLY awful habit of whining. I HATE WHINING!!!! I'd almost rather deal with an all-out public tantrum than a whiny voice about EVERYTHING. Blech!!!!! I can't decide if he has a whiner in his class that he's picking up the habit from, or if he gets to whine at Grandma's house. Either way. That shizzzzz has got to STOP!

Anywho. Then there's my grandpa. He fell a little over a week ago and has been in the hospital ever since. He did GREAT that first night. Got some insulin and did amazing. They said he had a little bit of pneumonia still, but nothing to be worried about. The next day, he could barely breath, had to get intubated, and was sent to ICU. He's in a regular room now, but still having trouble with the pneumonia and other stuff. It kills me to see him like that. He's not even sure where he is. He is my hero! The single man that has been in my life from day 1. He loves me unconditionally and makes sure I always know it. I dread the day he's no longer with us...

Anyway - moving on. This is the get happy challenge. Not the "let's be sad" challenge.

Instead of continuing to tell you about all the crap going on right now, I'll get to the happy part. My darling hubby and I celebrated our FIVE year anniversary!!!! :) In less than two months, I will get to say I've been married to him longer than I've ever been married to anyone else!!! HAHAHAHA. That cracks me up for some reason.

Me and the hotness that is my hubster!
And then there's my TEXANS!!!!!! 5-0 BAY-BAY!!!!!!!!! :D Oh yeah! Oh yeah! Oh yeah! Watt Watt! They beat the Jets last night. It was not a blow-out, but we won. And that makes me HAPPY!

P.S. I'm a female. I love my Texans, but I don't know a whole lot about football. My hubs is a FB coach... not me. On that note, I think it's seriously tacky that some females think it's cool to point out how much more they know about football than other females. Like, really. That's awesome for you! But don't make it out like I'm not a REAL fan because I don't know as much as you. 

Whew... Man that felt good! I seriously need an anonymous blog so I can gripe about things that bug me and not alienate people I like. LOL.

He is a BEAST!!! And he's #99!! Oh yeah! Oh yeah! Oh yeah! WATT WATT!
Moving on. Today's goals are to get my house clean! Get the middle little to the doctor. And finally decide on a set schedule for my cookie trailer. That has been really hard for me, by the way. I want to be open as much as possible, but it's FB season so I don't have husband help right now. Who is going to pick up the kids? Take them to their stuff? Feed them? Etc. Etc. Etc. Aye ya ya!

Ok, seriously, HAPPY!!!! Come on, Melissa....

Today's tip is to take a moment to SMILE at someone. Or say something nice. Give someone a compliment. You just never know how it will change that person's day. And doing nice things makes US feel good, too! 


*What is the Get Happy Challenge? It is a totally made-up challenge between me and one of my besties, Elizabeth, to motivate each other to get and be happier mommies by Christmas. Each day we will try our darndest to post a tip, goal and thought of the day, and each night we will post how our day was. We will share ideas and words of encouragement along the way as our Christmas gift to each other. Feel free to join our challenge. The more the merrier = HAPPIER!* Follow Elizabeth  HERE!
