10 things that prove I am a happy person, dammit

Fine, I'll admit it. I was kind of pissface Debbiedowner in my last post. To make up for it, I present to you GIFs galore to illustrate the things that make life just a little more fantabulous. Listen to this song while reading along...

1. A full coffee pot. Just picking that sucker up and feeling liquid energy ready for consumption makes my day AWESOME.

Aww yea, with a side of yoga pants and fat-free cream., y'all

2. Office is closed, school is open. It's rare, but when the stars align, IT'S AMAZING.

3. I remember my password before locking myself out of my email/bank/loan/EVERYTHING account


4. When I actually like my kid's favorite jam.

5. What? My dad is in town (aka free babysitter) and a Groupon that's about to expire?


6. Oh, it's Mr. Swirley's turn for bathnight? Don't mind if I kick back, throw my psoriasisy elbows behind my head and relaaaax.

calm down

7. This just makes me laugh. Alot. Maybe my reaction makes me a bad mom, but I am willing to risk that judgement so you can enjoy a kid swearing.

8. Playdates that don't requiring a cleaning frenzy. Those are the best kinds of friends to have.

9. Babies. Last week I was having a terrible day and I asked a stranger if I could look at his baby. Surprisingly, he green-lighted my creepy request and it worked! I also didn't get arrested.

10. Meat on sale. You think I am joking? Our basement freezer is full of that artery-clogging flesh. Ewww.

So there you go. Ten things that prove I am not a total sociopath. Or maybe these just further reinforce that I am indeed 100% bizarro. Oh well.

What makes your head explode from happiness?
