Ten Things that Make Me Stupid Happy

Stupid happy doesn’t have anything to do with IQ. It’s when you are so happy that you act stupid (or embarrassing). These actions may include but are not limited to: bursting into song, dancing by yourself, giggling uncontrollably, hugging strangers, etc.

Yesterday was full of stupid happiness. It. Was. Awesome.

Here’s the list of the things ten things that happened yesterday that made me sing, dance, giggle, and smile till my face hurt:
  1. Easter candy. It’s better than Christmas, folks. Cadbury eggs, Cadbury mini eggs, Starburst jelly beans. That’s sugar-coated happiness.
  2. Watching someone else vacuum out your couches. (Yes, I totally hugged the cleaning lady before she left!)
  3. My children playing together, nicely.
  4. Getting to do something for myself without feeling guilty.
  5. Reading stories to my kids and knowing they enjoy it.
  6. Not having to wear a coat.
  7. Eating at a restaurant.
  8. Working on my book without wondering if there is something else I should be doing.
  9. Having an adult conversation with my husband.
  10. Sleeping through the night without interruption.
Here’s wishing you all a day full of stupid happiness!

    It’s the little things in life. . .right? Sometimes I think we get so caught up on the big stuff that we miss the “stupid happy” moments LOL. Glad you had an awesome day – let’s hope it continues through today:)

    Let the stupid happy continue! Just got back from my daughter’s doctor’s appointment with Dr. Yummy Delicious. Yeah…I’m totally acting like a teenage girl with giggle fits. But they don’t make “real” men that look, sound, or dress like that.

    That’s so funny you mentioned this – just on Monday, my students and I were making a list of the small details in everyday life that bring us happiness, and then we looked at what we’d do on our perfect day and how much of that we could possibly do every day (which is why I’m wearing blue right now. It rocks!). Thanks for the uplifting post! 🙂

    I wanna cleaning lady! That would be sweet! I’d totally go stupid happy for that. I’m telling you, the cleaning lady I have (me) should be fired. She’s no good. 🙂

    Oh, and I love Easter candy too–I want a chocolate bunny. Solid. Not hollow.

    Every item on your list makes me stupid happy too – or would, if I had someone to vacuum out my couch! I love Cadbury caramel eggs and robin’s eggs, and chocolate in any shape 🙂 And I would add to the list spontaneous hugs from your teenage children, the first signs of spring (for which I am waiting anxiously – we’re still in coats here!), a nice letter from a child or email/phone call/comment that lets you know someone is enjoying your work, and that very rare moment when you find out that someone wants to publish your book (which is not a little thing, but is possibly capable of making me act stupidest of all :))
