Day 2 of the happiness hunt. Things didn't go quite as well yesterday as I had hoped. Homemade pizza never happened. My husband decided to throw out my almond flour. Only he didn't tell me he threw out my almond flour. So I was still under the assumption that I had almond flour until it came time to add the almond flour. I totally threw a tantrum over almond flour. You would have thought it was my precious or a child that was my favorite hands down almond flour baby. That was my almond flour. Ok ok.. he moved the flour to a cabinet I don't use because it has a history of friendly mouse visits during winter months. It's an old farmhouse so there is bound to be a couple places. I never noticed he moved it and guess what. A mouse loved my almond flour as much as I do. So he threw it out.. and didn't tell me. So it's not like he was discriminating against the almond flour but still. I still totally yelled STOP TOUCHING MY THINGS!! Luckily he wasn't there when I yelled these things. And I refused to answer any phone calls after the first one demanding to know where my almond flour was because well.. huh.. I wonder if almond flour has ever been mentioned in any divorce proceedings.

I'm totally a brat about this and I know it. I also know I got so upset because I tried to do something for me and it didn't work out. So after the almond flour incident of 2018 I made the best of it. I made Utica Greens and crustless pizza. I will even post one of those food pics like everyone else to prove it!!

Today I'm still finding ways to add more positivity into my life. I worked out at lunchtime. I listened to a couple inspiring podcasts on the drive to work. I recapped day 1 on my blog. I'm writing here. I'm writing again. I meditated. I called an amazing friend just to hear his voice. And because I worked out at lunchtime I now have time to do something enjoyable tonight.

Oh, man, it's always something! Happiness comes from having control and you didn't have it! I also had a mouse experience last night: walked into my kitchen and I know I saw a mouse zip into the side of the dishwasher. I had almost talked myself into there not being any mice but there he was. They steal the bird food right out of the cage bowls. Keep up the good work with the positivity!

I had a co-worker that got a divorce over a bag of potato chips! She bought them to top a casserole she was making, husband ate them and she served him papers. That was the straw that broke the camels back obviously, but yes - stuff like that does get mentioned in divorce papers :P Looking forward to the food picture and you rock for working out at lunchtime!

Mice don't like peppermint. Get some peppermint essential oil, mix a few drops in a quart of water, and spray weekly. I grew up on a ranch and used to own a farm.

We all have our "incidents". Mine is still known to this day as the "Cheese Incident". It inspires gifts of gourmet cheese and wine and Christmas LOL.

About 2 months ago we had the "Orange Episode". Got home from work and my last Cara Cara orange was gone- oh man, it was a duck and cover night. We've all had it happen- our poor families. At least you had Utica Greens they help solve life's little problem. Peppermint oil really does work for mice, some insects too, by the way.

Hang with it, DFW. Tings get to us all and stress reduction is key - working out at lunch used to really help when I had a day job
