I Wonder What Is Making Me Happy Today?

My brain is in the off position today and I am being a bad Monday Hostess of the Wonder Women site. Bad Wicked M! So, since work is hectic and I got less than three hours of sleep last night, I have decided to take the easy way out today. I am choosing an easy topic and then checking out. Green beer (or at least some beer) awaits my arrival at home!

I wonder what is making me happy about today. Quite honestly, this should be a tough topic. I mean, it is a Monday and I think a cold is in my future. My throat is raw and I keep sniffling while I sit at my desk. I got little to no sleep last night due to my husband's LOUDEST SNORING EVER and the glorious cat who paces up and down our bed at night. Love that. And, uh...wait. I am writing about happy things!

I got a new haircut over the weekend and my hair actually looks cute today! Score one for fine hair being oomphed by new styling products and a cute new style.

It is St. Patrick's Day and that gives me a free pass to drink. I drink purely for medicinal reasons typically (yeah, right) so it is nice to be able to drink because of a holiday and not because beer is the most appetizing thing in our refrigerator.

Before I drink my celebratory St. Patrick's Day beer(s), I think I might take a nap. I never do this and it is a little bit of a treat for me. I am looking forward to being comatose for an hour immensely.

It is already 4:00p where I am and that means that my Monday workday is nearly over. Woo!

I got to meet my favorite author, Jodi Picoult, for the third time on Saturday. She was charming as always and I got four more of my books signed.

March Madness is upon us and I love this time of year. Coming from a place where basketball is a religion means that no self-respecting Hoosier girl can ignore March Madness.

I have a wonderful husband despite the snoring. He is funny, kind, and very smart. In one friend's words: "He is the nicest husband ever."

I have a couple of really cool projects that I am working on and I love that they have given me the creative boost I have been needing.

Dancing With the Stars starts again tonight! Yay for awesome reality television.

After last week being such a huge-a-mongous failure, today gives me a brand new start!

You have lots of things about which to be happy today and I'm very glad for you.

When people have asked me why I'm not wearing green, I say, "I'm IRISH. To celebrate, I don't need to wear green. I just need to drink a Guinness and then punch you in the face for asking such a dumb question."

That makes me happy.
