NaBloPoMo is kicking my boo-tay

I don’t even know what day it is today. I’m way tired, a teensy hungover even though I was far from drinking in excess last night. And even though I am trying to be happy and cheerful, November sucks swamp ass for my family, and we have taken another hit and lost another loved one; a very close friend. I’ve drafted an ode to her, but I can’t even bring myself to finish it, let alone post it today.

I’m bringing the focus back on the positive though, because what are you going to do, right?! Here are two highlights from this week.

My husband got an unexpected promotion and raise yesterday! Yay him!! It was really the boost he needed to get through more time at a job he doesn’t love.

Today I am meeting with my first bride and groom! That’s right, I can perform marriage ceremonies, and my first is marrying two very close friends of ours. We are so excited!

And that is about it.

What kind of happiness happened to you this week? I would love to hear about it!

    Good for you for pausing to write something good. Sometimes a look around at the little things can help a healing heart. I am happy because hubby and I finally have a day off together after a hectic week. :)

    I’m glad you wrote and, in turn, kicked NaBloPoMo’s boo-tay! It’s getting harder and harder. The holidays have always been hard for me, so I completely understand and I’m sorry to hear about your friend.

    My happiness this week was learning that the woman I wanted as a mentor WILL be returning to the college I attended AND I’ll be able to touch base with her at some point. And, one of the section editors at BlogHer asked if I’d be interested in syndicating my super powers post (still waiting to see if it actually happens).

      I am SO GLAD you are going to connect with your mentor! I know how much that means to you. And YAY about syndication! Keeping my fingers crossed for you!
