ABCs of Happiness: W


Waffle Night-Basically one of the best parts of my week. Great friends, something good on TV, someone else cooking me waffles and bacon, (and if I'm really lucky, an amazing potato sidedish!), and lots and lots of laughs (with just enough complaining about work to get us through the week). It's what makes us The Group. And even though some are moving and others are going to be much busier this year, I know we will manage to get together for Waffle Night every now and then because we need it to keep us sane.

Winter-I love winter.  Deal with it.  And after this crazy hot summer, I am really ready for cold.  Maybe even a snow day or two (or ten...)  Especially when I get my new TV in my bedroom and can stay in my warm bed all day.


Will Ferrell-Seriously. HILARIOUS.  I can watch Elf every day of the year. Or his SNL clips.  Or Anchorman.  Ok... anything of his really.
Wildcats-Seriously... the fact that I didn't add this the first time means I should be punched in the face.  Because even though I talked about it when I was on K and again on U, I really need to say that the Wildcats make me happy. Very, very happy.  Honestly, ask someone who knows me to describe three things about me, and if "Huge UK fan" isn't in the list, then you need to ask someone else, because that person CLEARLY does not really know me.

Very, Very Happy


ABCs of Happiness: V

Vacation- As an employee of the school system (I think that's the first time I haven't said "As a teacher..." and man that feels weird) I get lots of little breaks throughout the year.  Fall break, Christmas break, spring break, and of course summer break. It is so nice to be able to sleep in and not worry about curriculum and Moodle and iPads and on and on and on. That much of "vacation" is great, but I really want to go somewhere.  I love the beach, and would love to go there on vacation at least once a year, but that doesn't really happen very often. For the past several years, Annapolis has been my go to vacation spot, but this year that didn't work either.  I did take a mini vacay with some of the greatest friends ever to Indiana and Cincinnati a few weeks ago and that was enough for me.  Sometimes it's just getting out of town, turning the email off on my iPhone, and having a great time and lots of laughs that makes a vacation.

Velveeta-Y'all know I need to put a food in basically every letter. And if you argue Velveeta isn't a food, well we can't be friends anymore.  Not only does it make the best mac & cheese my grandmothers ever thought of making, but it's also the main ingredient in Cheesy Goodness (if you've tasted this, you understand.)

Victory-I like it when UK wins, I like it when I'm on a winning team, and I like it when I win individually. Sometimes in life, I don't always feel like I am winning, but some days I do... And more often than not lately...
