Life of a Fire Wife

Things That Make me Happy

Recently I was told that I need to “Just snap out of it and make a conscious decision to be happy.”  Riiiiiiight….I’ll get right on that.

I was also asked, “What turns you on?”   Hmmmmmm………..

So I decided to make a list.  Turns out there are plenty of things that make me happy (A necessary precursor to being “turned on.”  ‘Cuz you know – if Momma ain’t happy……)  I think the problem is that these things occur too seldom in my life.  Some of the things on my list don’t take any effort,  some I can make happen myself – others not so much.  I’m sure there are things I’ve left out, but here’s what I’ve been able to come up with:


  • Johnny
  • My babies
  • Grandma Betty
  • My Nana
  • Music
  • Setting and meeting my goals
  • Learning something new
  • Being alone
  • Being with my friends
  • Love
  • The sound of running water
  • Chocolate with raspberries
  • Potatoes
  • Bread
  • Sunshine on my shoulders
  • John Denver
  • Gone With the Wind
  • Val Kilmer
  • Payday
  • Butterfingers
  • Almond Joy
  • Naps while it’s raining
  • Spooning with Johnny
  • Candlelight
  • Almond Champagne from Wilson Creek Winery in Temecula, CA
  • Lavender Vanilla Sugar Scrub from Bath & Body
  • My iPod – But I need a new one
  • The sound of wind through pine trees
  • My hair – on a good hair day
  • Support pantyhose
  • Black pumps with plenty of “toe cleavage”
  • Fishnet stockings
  • Yellow Gold
  • Diamonds
  • Emeralds
  • Lavender Roses
  • Yoga
  • Having my hair brushed by someone I love
  • Trying new recipes – when I have somebody around who will eat them with me.
  • Quinoa with Black Beans
  • NOT being fat anymore – 10 more pounds and I will be so happy!
  • Scrapbooking wonderful memories
  • Wine tasting
  • Shopping! (Naturally)
  • Gardening


Now that I think about it….I need to make a list of things I DON’T like too.

Aha!  Blog fodder for tomorrow!
