I can’t believe I’ve posted every single day for a solid month (I suppose yesterday could have been considered a month as well, but 31 just has a certain sense of authority to it).  Just 334 days to go.  

Today was a pretty productive day.  Work, grocery, workout, laundry, cook dinner, clean kitchen, pay all of the bills for September, and post on my blog.  I met every single goal that I set out for myself today.  I even got in a nice, long shower and some playtime with The Bear!

And the most important part is that I did it all with a smile.  

I didn’t feel aggravated today nor do I remember having any real negative thoughts at all. The IVR got a little boring towards the end of the day, but I fixed that by cranking up the Broadway music channel on my Pandora.  There’s nothing like hearing Idina Menzel belt out Defying Gravity at 3 o’clock on a Thursday.  Of course leaving it on the station also means that I flit about the house for the rest of the day singing, “I Have a Dream” from Les Mis.  Blerg.

We’re headed to Mayfield tomorrow and I must say that I’m quite excited.  I ordered a new air mattress so we don’t have to pay to stay in a hotel and I don’t have to leave in a hurry on Sunday morning.  This all means that I can actually ENJOY a visit to see my family for a change.  (do not take that personally, Mother, you know I mean the hotel/only there for 36 hour issues).

I looked into a few more things about planning our trip to the Pacific Northwest next year and I’m elated about my findings.  The more I read about that part of the country the more it calls to me.  I can hardly wait to see it.  Personally, I wish that we were driving there, but I think that’s going to have to wait until we have a bit more time on our hands.

I am so looking forward to having a break from school next week and a three day weekend this weekend.  It will be nice to spend some of my free time not doing homework or being sick. Perhaps I can FINALLY start working on my Smash Book from vacation!

It’s all starting to come together.  All the dreams that I’ve ever had are all starting to come true.  I have an amazing husband to share my life with.  A loving and supporting family.  A best friend that finally accepts me for me and doesn’t want to change things.  I’m almost finished with my first college degree.  The next five years are going to be amazing.

“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.”
