Are You Happy?
"No. My happiness or unhappiness is all within 'me'. So whether or not I happen to stumble on the biggest cookie cutter mansion with 10 different luxury cars in my driveway, I will still be a miserable bitch from time to time." She laughed at my honesty, because she knows how I am. My happiest times are when she has off from work and we take a drive to our favorite lunch joint and take Lola to the dog park. I am happiest when I get to cook for my family. I love that. I am happiest when I take my mom out for dinner or just out in general. I am happiest when I see my two nieces and my one nephew. For me, if I ever won the lotto, it wouldn't be about the money itself and what it could buy, but it would be about the TIME bought with that money. Time flies and before you know it, you're retired with silver/blue hair and ready to move to Boca Raton. So, today I am unhappy. Why? Because not only did Mad's job make her work yesterday, but they mandated work for today. We were supposed to cut our own Christmas tree and come back home where I could cook a nice meal and have some cocktails with her as well as decorate our tree. I was looking forward to this all. week. long. However, I am grateful for many things. I just wish I could win this Powerball's $425 million dollar jackpot - just to buy some more time, and perhaps a few nice sparkly things.
