That is what i had today.
Life is so much happier, when we appreciate the little things. Happiness easier for me now, than i ever imagined possible. All those years spent TRYING to be happy were such a waste of time. I had spent my whole life, until this past 9 months...thinking "If only....then i will be happy"...
Now i just think...if only i had stopped to appreciate the little things, then i would have been happy all along.
I had to be up and out of bed early this morning, to dismantle the futon. I knew that was going to be an easy job though...i knew this because when i moved in here, i did not put it together properly! I had just gotten out of hospital, that first night that i spent here and just wanted everything done, but was so exhausted that setting it up and just storing boxes underneath it so that it did not cave in, seemed like a good idea.
Turns out it was. All i had to do was remove the boxes and it came apart straight away! My friend, Colin popped in on his way to the airport and assembled the bunks for me. Lucky for the girls, because i don't think boxes would have helped with the bunks.
I made Colin lunch, to thank him for that. By the time we were done eating...it was run time for Nixon. It was really hot out there again today...anyway, got back from our run, and proceeded to organise the girls bedroom and make it all nice for them. I had to take photos of how nice it looks right now, because it won't look like that 5 minutes after they arrive back here on Wednesday.
Once i had that room all perfect...i felt the need to get the rest of my place into a matching state. My home looks gorgeous at the moment.
Dan stopped by for a visit. He was in big trouble with me after a comment he made to me regarding Mr. yes/no. He has sufficiently sucked up to me now though, so i will probably forgive him. Why is it only recently that i have started looking at men while they talk and wondering if they realise how silly they sound? Men say a lot of really stupid things...all of the time. I had not really noticed this fact...until recently.
Anyway...forgave him. He is a good friend. Alllll good.
Finished my cleaning...made the effort to cook dinner even...just for myself. I hardly ever cook...JUST for me, but i did tonight...and now i am feeling too full...and bloated. I ate way too much.
I purposely turned off the tv before the news finished so that i did not have to risk seeing the beginning of The Simpsons...or even hear the music. I think i have mentioned before, how much i can't STAND that show. Prime time on Sunday night...only in New Zealand are The Simpsons on tv.
I just had a shower, and crawled into bed with my fresh, crisp, clean sheets. Nixon is already passed out on his side...i think he ate too much dinner as well.
This is the first chance that i have had all day, to just sit and relax. I am going to be asleep very early tonight.
What a fantastic day. I love going to bed...knowing that everything that i needed to do is done. I get to wake up to a perfect home. No idea how i am going to fill my day tomorrow, but i will think about that in the morning.
