I’m still playing with the title on the hopefully recurring blog post. Last week I tried out “5 things” and found that coming up with 5 things was a little intimidating. It’s so sad that I couldn’t come up with 5 things that made me happy during the week. I think it’s one of those things that you truly have to change your mindset about. Negative energy breeds more negativity while positive energy breeds positive. Last week, I was a little down in the dumps. I’m not really sure why either. It was just one of those weeks. Everyone has them and I’d be stupid to think that another one isn’t around the corner, but here’s to positive thinking, right?

I have a good one this week: my niece was born two days ago! Yay! I really want to post a picture, but I promised my brother I wouldn’t. He’s not really into the idea of pictures of his kid floating around in cyberspace. That conversation started a huge blowout between him and his in-laws. Anyway, no pictures. But, believe me when I say she is adorable. Two weeks early and over 7 lbs! I saw her yesterday and I’m in auntie heaven. I have two kids of my own and let me just say there is something super special about getting to enjoy a baby and then handing them off to the parents. So, that’s my happy thought of the week. What’s yours?
