Happiness Is...

Happiness Is... new car (Duuuuuudes.... it's seriously seriously delicious.) iPhone (I've had this little gadget for almost 2 years now - and it still amazes me every day. Hubby and I just put together a shared calendar at google - and it syncs to and from our iPhones. I had to add a doctor's appointment for Prissy (which I did on my phone while at the doctors office) - and added it on my iPhone, the google calendar website and on hubby's phone. Seriously slick.

...An ice cold glass of chardonnay... son's cuddles... (just because my car and my iphone are before my son and daughter do NOT mean I love them less than my car and iPhone... :)) daughter being able to stay at home by herself while we go to Taekwondo (nice, because otherwise, she and her brother would be fighting like cats and dogs while hubby and I were in class.) It's even nicer when we come home and she's all showered and ready for bed. crazy-ass cat carrying around her favorite stuffed toy (a whale) and dropping it at my feet and then meowing like crazy. She brought me a gift... She wanted to share her favorite toy with me. awww..... bed that is awaiting upstairs. It's all soft and comfy.. I love my bed... (hate the alarm clock that sits next to it though. :P)

...feeling like "not a total and complete failure at work." Right now - I'm working on a HUGE HUGE HUGE project... If I screw this up - everyone will know about it and blame me for LOTS of things for the next 18 months. I do not currently feel like a screw up and I sorta kinda know what I'm doing. This is the first time I've felt like this in quite a few years. Which means I'll probably screw this up... *LAUGH*

...testing for first degree taekwondo black belt midterms on Thursday - this is the first step of many on the road to my second degree. I know the stuff and I'm excited to get going. More than that though - we have a good friend that is testing for their black belt on Thursday and we get to cheer him on. I know he'll do great!

...popcorn with real butter...

Today I am...

(I totally stole this from badger...)

...reading Jodi Picoult's Handle with Care - I love Jodi Picoult, but I'm halfway through this book and it's just ticking me off. I'll keep reading though - until I can't... :)

...setting up shared calendar's so hubby and I can use the same calendar which is accessible through our iPhones... ROCKIN!!!! I have a baton team calendar, a personal calendar (which updates with my work stuff) and a new family calendar! Hubby and I update our "stuff" - baton, taekwondo, Bubba's soccer practice, haircuts, softball board events, etc.. Dudes - this is just really neat... I think we have finally found a way to keep in sync so we can stay organized!

...grilling peppercorn tenderloin, rice a roni, and a bunch of roasted veggies on the grill... OMG! I love grilled roasted veggies! It was a meal to die for! (and yes, I did make the rice-a-roni on the grill - so THERE!)

...getting my toes done because they look like CRAP! And if I want to wear sandals my toes can't be all skanky-like! And duh! It's summer, I don't wear anything BUT sandals!! The people at my normal nail place were all, "WTF - where have you been?!!??" I should have felt guilty but I didn't.. My last pedicures were in AZ with Prissy at Nationals, with one of my BFFs to "catch up" and in the Bay Area while Prissy was at Baton Camp... So - it's actually been several months since I've been to my regular place. And, I have to say - my regular place is still the best. HOLY SMOKES!!! BEST FOOT MASSAGE EVAH!!! (Crystal Nails 2 - Rocklin, CA - seriously, the best around.. and not so expensive!)

...sleeping in, because I'm seriously not a morning person and I haven't slept in for a LOOOOONG time... I'm dreading waking up early tomorrow...

...getting baton team stuff setup so we're ready for the '09-'10 season to start!

...cuddling with my son while watching Big Brother... (probably one of my favorite things of today)

...going to Safeway and buying groceries... Bubba came - he was really good and we got Starbucks... But, it was still going to the store, which is just a chore. I felt minorly guiltly because I should have gone to Walmart first - but I had a lot of fresh fruit, veggies and meat that I needed. Not the best thing to buy at Walmart and I just didn't feel like spending the day grocery shopping..

...writing a blog and while it seems like I've been totally busy today, I've really accomplished nada....

...dang - my life is so dull... SEE why I haven't been updating my blog? *smile*
