The Great List {5.20.13}

It's Monday, the sun is shining, my house is in decent order, and it's been about a month since my last Great List...

Fun at Sea World yesterday
1. Work. It's great! It is keeping me sane and insane at the same time. I LOVE my job. I am savoring every last day until summer vacation and unemployment begins again. Teaching in California is tough these days, especially in my district where budget cuts keep impacting the classroom. Keeping my head high though and hoping for the best next year. This part-time gig is perfect for our family right now.

2. Local fun. Living in San Diego is nothing but awesome. Sure it may get over 80 at the beach for a week in the summer and tourists take over my town for a few months, but the local fun makes up for it. We have Sea World, the world famous San Diego Zoo, and the beach just minutes from our home. One of my favorite things to do is play tourist in my own town. Makes it seem like we are on vacation too!

3. Getting my groove back. I am finding time to exercise and it has really improved my outlook in general. Personally, exercise is my number one mood booster. Making it my priority helps keep me happy. So what if I have to pause the DVD 3-4 times to get Carson to go back to sleep at least the workout is getting done eventually.

4. Friends. We are so lucky to have play-dates almost everyday that I am not working. Leila needs it and so do I. (Carson could care less at this point, but when he's ready he has a BFF waiting!) The ladies I call friends are supportive, relaxed, understanding, funny, and just as crazy as me.

Ahhhhh. That felt good. No Great List doesn't mean nothing great happened, it just means life has taken over for the time being. I hope your week rocks!

Come back each week for my newest list and don't forget to check out Betsy's list each week too.  Warning...positive thinking is addicting!
