Tortilla Pizza and My Birthday Highlights


I waited in line at the DMV for 45 minutes to renew my drivers license. I was by myself. I chewed a piece of gum and didn’t share. .. .and. . .I read a book. It was nice.

While I was at the DMV, Lucky peed on the floor and rolled in it. Warwick said he didn’t smell, but he did. So I gave him a bath and he stood moderately still.

We ate SUSHI for lunch!!!! Nobody ever wants to eat Sushi with me, but on my birthday. . .not one single complaint:)

We early voted. I love pretending that I’m republican just to get the pamphlets.
Warwick rented me “The Descendants” for my birthday evening.  I fell asleep towards the end.
15 minutes free time.  I ran outside and watered my garden.
Dinner at one of my fave sandwich shops, Potbelly. Even though my 11 year old hates sandwiches, she only complained a little.
I’m still basking in the glow of my birthday last week.
It was a beautiful day.
I did EVERYTHING I wanted to do. And the things that didn’t fit into the schedule, got put on a list to DO SOON.

It wasn’t a particularly different day than normal, but it was splendid. Just splendid.
And I’m wondering if it was that way because I was determined to make it great. Which begs the question, can everyday be my birthday? I mean, can everyday be LIKE my birthday? Do I only have to wake up and decide that TODAY is going to be a great day, and it will?

I hope so.
I’m going to try it out tomorrow.
Wish me luck.

I think I may be on to something.
Living the laid back, easy going, life.  Always believing its gonna be A-OKAY.

Bellies will always be full.
Children will never complain.
Only minimal effort will be made.

It’s all about the positivity.

And just as soon as I thought those thoughts, I realized it was 3:25 pm and my kids would be home in 20 minutes famished.

And then a new thought came to my mind.
Tortilla Pizza.
This glass half full perspective seems to really be working out well.
