Taking a cue from Neil Pasricha and his blog 1000 Awesome Things, which is so totally cool and funny and delightful, all the happy words. His blog launched a book deal the very next year called “The Book of Awesome”. Read it.
My blog has not received any book deals. 😦
But I’m still hopeful! This is the decade, I can feel it!!!
Anywayyyy… we’re doing this thing that I saw on Facebook that involves a jar and little slips of paper and on the slips we right one awesome thing from our day. The goal is to read these on New Year’s Eve 2021 and see how awesome our year has been.
We are all for positivity on my house. Even the animals have a happy spring in their step. (Okay, Moca has a spring in her step ONLY if she has recently come in from a muddy walk and has a zoomie attack and tears ass around our living room which has WHITE CARPETS! PoBo will have a spring in her step only if she’s trying to get away from Moca, who will only chase PoBo and not Luna. Weird right? Well Luna will slice Moca a new one if she even tried to chase her. And Luna gets a real spring in her step when you open the cabinet containing their food. Luna will come tearing and skidding into the kitchen and twirl around your feet purring. Even if you accidentally bump the cabinet door she will be there faster than a blink.)
So yes, some of us are motivated by food. 🙂
me: Look! I started this jar and we can write down one great thing that happened to us each day. Then, at the end—
Jack: Not gonna happen.
me: Huh? No, look it’s easy, we just—
Jack: I’m already writing stuff in my own notebook.
me: Well then I’ll write my own stuff in THIS jar and read it to myself in 365 days.
(Suddenly I’m feeling less happy)
me: Ok write one thing at least.
Jack: (takes a slip and writes something)
me: Can’t wait to read that one.
Jack: Heh heh.
Any thoughts on what he wrote? Did he call me a Boomer again though I’m clearly not a Boomer??? 😂😂😂
Aww remember when I had this little Dude who thought everything we did together was fun!!!???
