30 things.

Today’s post is inspired by the wonderful Kitty Pinkstars.  I saw this on her blog … and decided my first day back to work would be the perfect time to think about these things.  I am determinded (against ALL odds!!!) to not let myself get sucked into the doom and gloom and general crankiness of those around me.  I had such an amazing little break … and created SO MUCH.  I had such a fun time off … and I want to hold TIGHT to what this break made me feel inside.

I have to work.  Until I win the lottery or have kids or my business takes off like crazycakes (PLEASE LORD!!!!!), I have to stick it out here.  But that does NOT mean I have to be all cranky and stompy and demanding and unhappy like so many people out there.  I can live in my own little world where my happy, kooky family, my wonderful, caring husband, my amazing kitty and all my friends reside amongst rainbow colored yarn just begging to be made into stuffed animals and afghans, piles of beautiful fabric lay around waiting for me stitch them up into cozy quilts and pillows, and everything is happy and cute and sunshiney!!!  This, above ANYTHING ELSE, is my goal for 2011.  To live in this world despite whatever the other world throws at me!! :o)
