Catching Up

I haven't posted the past 40 reasons to be happy!  The good news is that the reason I haven't posted them is because I have actually had a good amount of work to do the past few days!  (  which is a reason to be happy, job security! :)  )  Okay, I also forgot a couple of the days too...but that just means there are 40 reasons to be happy plus today's 10 so you have 50 reasons to ponder this morning.  Happy Friday.  (How many times can I say "happy" in this post?  One too many already I would think)
