The Friday Rundown -- 5 Positives to Focus On

Let me just say that this has been a week.  A week of highs and lows, and tears and anger, and yummy food and skipped meals.  The whole Spring forward thing always throw my body into a tailspin, but I am enjoying the extended daylight into the evening hours.  With that being said, here are 5 things I am thankful for.

1) Fabulous friends who will come stay at our house, take care of our dog and let us have a weekend to celebrate my FIL's upcoming 75th birthday.

2) A belated wedding gift of an overnight stay in downtown Seattle. We'll be staying at Hotel 1000 and since this is a mini-vacation we are going to indulge in massages Saturday afternoon.  This girl cannot wait.  I love a good massage.

3) Great food.  Food is simply my love language.  Yes, I know it's not a legitimate love language, but I really appreciate good food.  Lots of family are in town for a long weekend as we celebrate the FIL so it's night after night after night of good food.  Family style Chinese, Metropolitan Grill, Dim Sum, fried chicken, and who knows what else.  What can I say.  I love food and I married into a family who loves to eat.  Win, Win!

P.S. When this week got to me, take out of Crispy Garlic Chicken from Bai Tong was how I coped.  Then I got to surprise the Mr. in his lunch with the leftovers.  And that's how I get wife points.

4) A husband who brings me breakfast in bed.  He has to fast for 8 hours today for a physical so his last change to eat was at 5:45 this morning.  Since I have a 6 AM meetings every other Friday, he got up, made breakfast, and brought it to me in bed.  I may still be in bed.  I really need to teach that man to make me coffee too.  ;-)

5) Like minded financial goals.  The Mr. and I are both fans of zero debt and have always paid our bills and debts on time and even early.  We were able to start our marriage with nothing but two mortgages as our debt, and that's how we plan on keeping it.  Still there are the months when the bills are a little higher, and I am thankful that because we have both always saved and always paid things on time, when the bills are higher we aren't stressed or wondering how they are going to get paid.

So that's it.  I thought after the funk of this week I needed to focus on the positives because after all I have a roof over my head, a man who loves me, and family and friends who stand by me.
