5 Reasons to be Happy today...

1. I'm finally over the flu or food poisoning (not sure which it was). Missed a day and a half of work, but more importantly... missed 2 days of blog land! And... I actually had an appetite tonight. Mmm... chicken.

2. I'm not stressing that I don't have all my Christmas shopping done. (What? Gah! Dammit... scratch that one!)

3. There's another hockey game tomorrow night. I never thought I would like hockey, but the fights are totally cool. Seriously. It isn't better than football, but I could get into this. Plus, our season tickets are FREE. Best reason to go.

4. The hostile takeover of my local bank (okay, it wasn't really hostile... but I'm not thrilled about it) hasn't YET caused me any major problems. I think I have a year to change over all my old account numbers to the new account numbers.

5. Best news of the day: My gas bill wasn't over $100! We had sub-zero temps for almost two weeks, and my stubbornness to keep the thermostat down actually paid off. Woot! Let the drinking.... I mean, celebrating begin! Wait..... Oh, damn! I just noticed that the billing period didn't cover the sub-zero temps period. Yeah... so I'm not so happy now. boooooooooooooooo

So... somebody please tell me something that made you happy today. I'm just a little bummed now, and I could use some cheering up.

What made me happy today was listening to Christmas carols all day long, plus finding a message from a friend on my answering machine, and I'm happy to know you're feeling better *and* that Iwe might get snow here but without 2 weeks of sub-zero weather. Ooooh, that sounds painful!

Oh, HOCKEY IS AWESOME. Of course, I've had a really hard time getting back into it since it started up again. But we're planning to go to a Sharks game when I'm home next week! I'm really excited.

I forgot to tell you something that made me happy today. Since I haven't even gotten out of my pajamas yet (oh, hello, noon), I'll tell you what's going to make me happy later: making Christmas cookies. Woot!

Hope you feel better!

Do you get your bills every month or every three months?

gabrielle- you should runaway to the midwest US... not Paris. WAY more fun! (not)

nabb- the hockey game was incredible, but we lost. :-(

MPB: every month.
