So today, I was challenged with making a post about
10 Little Things That Make Me Happy!
It’ll be interesting to see just how different, or the same our “Happy Things” are, being that Rebecca lives in the UK, while I live out in the Midwestern United States!
It really is hard coming up with just 10 Little Things That Make Me Happy!
As I write this, I’m sitting here with Thunder Booming outside and I’ve just got back from checking out the storm damage at my Mother’s House about fifteen minutes ago.
So I’d have to say right out off the bat…
#10 – My Mom
She’s my Mom! She brought me into this world, and many times threatened to take me out of it when I was misbehaving! But, I do love her, and even though she was strict at times, she raised me and my sister on her own!
#9 – My Amazing Kids!
I love these little squirts so damn much it’s hard to contain at times! Every new word my daughter learns melts my heart and watching my 5 year old son figure out things that would have blown my mind at his age is a blast!
#8 – My Lovely Wife Meli!
She’s stuck with me through some tough times and even though we have our disagreements, I’ll always know that she’ll be right there by my side no matter what the world throws at us. When I met her 7 years ago, I knew she was the one, and even to this day, I still get weak every time we kiss!
#7 – This GIF!
Everything about this GIF is freaking hilarious and I WILL USE IT EVERY DAMN CHANCE I GET!!!
It instantly makes me smile and puts me a great mood!
Thank a ton Emma Stone for this face!
#6 – Chicken Bacon Ranch Pizza from Casey’s
Casey’s is a chain of One Stop Gas Stations out here in the Midwest which also happens to sell Pizza and Subs! While their Cheddar Bacon Potato Wedges are practically a gift from the gods when made right!
That Chicken Bacon Ranch Pizza is my biggest food weakness!
#5 – My Computer
I freaking love this thing! If my house ever caught fire, I’d have my kids in one arm and my computer in the other!
I can’t imagine anything coming out in the near future that will ever come close to rivaling this thing! I work on it, I play on it, I learn from it! Hell, I even make new friend with it!
If it ever broke, I might actually cry!
#4 – Sleeping In
Now this one sounds weird to pretty much everyone who knows me right now. I’m currently a stay at home dad so everyone tends to just think that my life is all laid back and lazy. I usually wake up around seven in the morning to get my son up and ready for school. My baby girl almost always wakes up just before his bus gets here. After that it’s feeding her, cleaning, and watching her until her brother gets home just in time for lunch. Then it’s activities, the park, and whatever else my kids can throw at me until my wife gets home in time for dinner. After I’ve cooked, eaten, and cleaned up dinner, it’s bath time. Then we usually spend an hour or so watching some T.V. until it’s time for the kids to go to bed. My wife and I then spend some more time watching “grown up shows”, a.k.a. NOT Moana or Trolls, until my wife gets sleepy and heads to bed leaving me with some time to myself to work on this blog or just goofing off online.
Actually being able to “Sleep In” sounds amazing!
#3 – YouTube
Between the hilarious videos of funny animals and the outlandishly weird “That Poppy” I can literally… NOT FIGURATIVELY.. spend all day on that site!
#2 – Spellcheck!
If it wasn’t for spellcheck, I’d sound like a complete moron in every written form! That little red squiggly line pops up on practically 10% of every word that hits not only this blog, but everything from Twitter to Text Messaging!
It’s not that I’m a bad speller, but a terrible typist. My fingers start moving so fast that I tend to either double press a button or click it so fast that it just doesn’t register at all.
#1 – Comic/Superhero Movies
I just can’t get enough of them. From the Guardians of the Galaxy to Hancock, I can start watching one of these films and quickly lose myself in them, forgetting that the real world even exists! Although I will NEVER forgive them for what they did to Superman (Man of Steel, Batman Vs Superman). He was my all time favorite, and now you ruined him!
My absolute favorite right now is The Flash on the CW network! Every episode I’m on the edge of my seat!
So there you have it!
