But I need to take this opportunity to note that despite all of those things, I'm generally a happy person. I'm not sure I ever thought I'd be really *happy*, but I am and have been for some time. When I was in Florida, both May (our friend from Scotland) and my grandmother remarked that they'd never seen me happier. I didn't think I was particularly happy that day, as I was really, really tired, but you know, maybe they just hadn't noticed before (well, May doesn't see me much and actually, neither does my grandmother).
And you know, it wasn't just that visit. I am happy. Really happy. I have a wondermous husband who takes care of me when I need to be taken care of and lets me be when I need to be let alone. I have a terrific two year old. I work with terrific people. And I have wonderful friends.
Aside from being debt-free, what more can a girl ask for? What's that you say? A DVD Player in the kitchen?1 Hah! My sweetie got me one!
1I am absolutely positive that have_inner_lady is cringing at the idea of a DVD player in the kitchen. And I'm okay with that. I cringe at the idea of slamming broom heads into chunks of ice, but that doesn't stop her! :)
