Oh Happy Day
I went into work today feeling great. For the past four days I have been going in late and have managed to go walking every morning. Bubs is going to school for two hours in the morning for Cross Country practice and I changed my schedule to go in late and leave later. Today was a great walk with the majority of it in the woods. The weather was gorgeous, sky was a deep blue, the air was cool and the sun was out. It was truly a treasure of a day!
Going into work, I decided that I would stay happy no matter what. The work gremlins tried to get me to change that attitude as I was accosted by two different people with two different problems while all I was trying to do was to get to the lounge to fill my water bottle. But I did keep that freaking smile on and listened. I have the strangest position in the lab, I get to address any problems that occur from the outreach services we provide to physicians, plus I guess I am involved in send out testing. There's a lot of problems and questions that can come up through the day and I never seem to get done what I had planned for the day. Overall though, I love my job and appreciate all the people that I work with, even the ones the can occasionally make me lose my smile.
Getting home and finding out that we are having company tomorrow night with a house that is slightly frumpled- still smiling....
Cat tearing up the tacky orange carpet that really needs to be removed- still smiling, isn't that what duct tape is for?
What made you happy today?
