The Treacherous Three’s

 

Happy 3rd Birthday Day Arai.

My grandson has reached another milestone.  He turned 3 last week. His mother and I survived the terrible 2’s and we are now entering into the treacherous 3’s.

We celebrated with a Thomas the Train themed party and all of his cousins and friends attended. He totally enjoyed being the center of attention.

 

 

Thanks for visiting!

Mr. Man

My grandson is a very inquisitive child.  He always finds something touch and explore.  Today it was the troth at great grandmom’s house he even decided to sit on the pig.

#100 Happy Days – DAY 1 5/7/14

After someone likes my post I like to view their page and see what they write.  I browsed thru Andreas blog, Cooking with a Wallflower,  after she liked my post “Moms Backyard“.  She has a lot of delicious recipes and great meal ideas. If you haven’t already you should check her blog out.

One of her post talks about a  100 Happy Days Challenge that she is doing with her sister and cousin.  I thought about this and decided to see if I can be Happy for 100 Days.

Most days for me are pretty good until Monday morning when I have to start my work week.  Since 2008/2009 the mortgage industry and economy hit an all time low.  I work in the mortgage industry as a case manager dealing with people struggling to make a mortgage payment, applying for a modification,  awaiting final decisions for a short sale, Deed in Lieu of Foreclosure, and even foreclosure at any moment.  In most of these situations the homeowner truly wants to keep their home.  But due to circumstances out of their control that is not possible most of the time.

In dealing with other people’s emotions it can make for a mentally draining and long day.  I must listen to and empathize with each of their situations (on average 75 calls and emails a day).  After hearing their struggles, I go home and decompress and attempt to deal with whatever is going on in my life.  But most times there is not enough hours in the day to handle what I need for me.

~

That is what makes this a GREAT Challenge for me.  It will help me decompress even before I get home by making me work to find a tha Happy Moment each day.

Today is post #1 Here is what made me HAPPY today.

 Living in an apartment has its advantages and disadvantages to having a single family home for a person that likes to garden.  I decided to create “Robin’s Balcony Oasis”.

These are the first flowers for the baskets that will hang over the railing.  I will be going back to Pope’s Garden to get even more.

My grandson, Mr. Man makes me happy everyday even on those bad days!
