I Am

I am stubborn. After three days of attempting to kill a small army of ants (and using the last of my Pledge), I gave in and went to the store for ant killer tonight. Seriously, pain in my ass.

I am scatterbrained. Cleaning up my apartment is a workout in itself. Upstairs folding laundry I hear the dishwasher finish and run downstairs. I catch a glimpse of the Bachelorette and become engrossed in the show. Hearing the washer stop, run back upstairs so my clothes don't end up a wrinkled mess. I am either scatterbrained or ADD. Can't decide.

I am happy. A smile hasn't left my face in weeks. Co-workers I hardly talk to are commenting on my "glowing" persona. Happy tears welled up as I saw the picture text from a very good friend of mine saying "She said yes!" There's a skip in my step as I walk to work, I'm humming along to songs at my desk. I would say I'm normally a happy go lucky person, but this is happy on steroids. Not that I'm complaining.

I am secretive. Only a few people know what (or who?) has been contributing to my happiness. I've been wanting to share with all of you, but life has been semi-crazy lately. Let's just say, "I can sleep when I'm dead" right? Details to come.

Life's too fun
And I'm too young
And the night ain't over yet
Like I said,
I can sleep when I'm dead

That post I almost exactly why I read blogs like yours!

People ask me why I read blogs about people's lives that I've never heard about. Sometimes I say for Escape, entertainment, but now I have a new answer. Insight & Perspective. Thanks!

I loved it.

I laughed out loud for the first time all week about the "Happy On Steroids" line.

Thanks!, I love your blog.

I'm so glad you're happy!! And, of course, I'm curious, but will patiently (semi-patiently) wait until you're ready to dish.

Loves!

Sara Jane said...

I love to "hear" the happiness back in your post!

I love the quote...That's a motto that I go by almost always!

Cheers!

janet said...

Maxie said...

I'm glad you're so happy! See, everyone gets their chance to be that way :-)

JP said...

A happy Michelle is a happy Internet.

Do you know who first said something to the effect of, "I can sleep when I'm dead"? Ben Franklin! He's my homeboy. You have great taste in music.

Wickedly Scarlett said...

Wow, I am so intrigued now!! And I'm so happy that you're happy :)

Also, I want a t-shirt that says "Ben Franklin is my homeboy".

Melissa said...

Oooooh... Happy to hear that you are happy n waiting to hear what makes you happy.

Z said...

I am... curious ;)

3carnations said...

I'm glad things are well. I've decided not to be curious - You're entitled to your secrets. :)

dreamgrrl said...

See? That's karma - you deserve good things that make you happy, and BAM there it is!

lspoon said...

Oh yay! You sound so happy! :) I'm so happy you're happy :)

Yoda said...

There are pills to cure ADD. If you are scatter-brained then you're simply fucked for life. (As am I!)

BTW, Comfest? Yay or Nay?

Kim said...

Thank goodness! You have my full attention...what/WHO is making you soooo happy?

ChasingParadise said...

It's wonderful to hear that you're so happy!

Now I can't wait to find out why :)

ashley said...

It's great to hear how happy you are, dear. I love to know that things are going so well for you!

Nilsa S. said...

Even though I'm not one of the few who knows the secret to your happiness, one thing is for sure ... I'm happy for you. You deserve to rebound with strength, beauty and love ... and it seems like you've got it. Hooray!

Jess said...

Well! Now I'm curious! But glad you're feeling so good.

might I add...? said...

I have heard that cayenne pepper sprinkled on the area where they are coming will kill them, or maybe just deter or super-annoy them. (Is that cruel?) Don't think I've tried this one, although I have tried borax. It works with some creatures.

Really glad to hear that you're happy. And I'm excited to hear details, whenever you're ready to share. Enjoy every minute!

Deutlich said...

Alexa said...

La Petite Chic said...

Happiness truly is contagious...this post made me smile :)

Playful Professional said...

I am really hoping to be skipping with a secret of my own later. Oh and I definitely get distracted anytime I start cleaning. It's just so much easier to sit and watch TV rather than remember to unload the dishes.

L Sass said...

Hooray for happiness!!

Hope you spill the deets soon, though.

notthelifeiordered said...

I'm so happy to hear you are happy :) You deserve it!!!

notthelifeiordered said...

I'm so happy to hear you are happy :) You deserve it!!!

emmaenlighted said...

Ohh, there's a boy! If you have ADD, then so do I, because I woke up about two hours ago and should have started laundry and packing, but here I am instead, still in my pajamas and on google reader.

Sigh.

Can't wait to hear about the boy :)

Annie said...

I went through my school's gifted program K-12 only to discover, while studying special education in college, that the "symptoms" of children with ADD and those who are "gifted" are often quite similar. I'm pretty sure I was "misdiagnosed."

Nothin' wrong with being secretive! Just make sure you get enough sleep to enjoy what all the secret fuss is about!

Katelin said...

Elise said...

Ooh, this was delicious and juicy. I want to know the secret! I can't wait until the time you're gonna tell us all. Also - LOVE the ending of the post. I think that sums up my life right now, too :)

Stacie said...

I clean in the same manner as you and it only gets worse when you have kids that ALSO interrupt your own madness. :D

amanda rae said...

chasinglibby said...

Rosemarie said...

Scatter fresh mint around or freshly ground pepper wherever you see the ants the most. Those seriously get rid of ants!!

Beth said...

I am completely scatterbrained too. Yesterday on my way to shower, I noticed my roommate was watching Lost, a spent 4 hours doing that before I even remembered that I was on my way to take a shower...

serious/silly/me said...

What did you think of Deanna ditching Graham? Made for some good drama! I thought she was gonna run back in and tell Chris she'd changed her mind!!!

Glad you're happy!!!

PrincessB said...

So glad you're so happy!

Julie said...

I am scatterbrained most times too.
And stubborn 100% of the time.


Can't wait to hear why you're on cloud 9!!

Vanessa said...

Can't wait to hear the juicy details!

teality said...

Hello! It's my first time here, but this entry made me smile and I put you on my blogroll so be sure that I'll be back.

In response to you being secretive as to the nature of your happiness: it's quite alright! I think it's better to hold such things close to your heart; it's your thing, after all. Although I'm sure dedicated readers would be thrilled to share your reason.

Miss A said...

yay for happiness!

Silverstar said...

Andrea said...
