Where is “My Happy Place?” and where is yours?

I just started talking to my friend’s husband on Facebook, nice guy. Out of a job for months already and he’s in a funk, a deep funk. My friend told me that he was in his “happy place” The Zoo on Facebook. Some people Farm (i’ve already been yelled at from a few friends because I refuse to farm) some people have a cafe (i did for 2 days)…..we all need coping mechanisms. I know it sounds like I’m Meredith from Grey’s Anatomy  ( I SO sound like her. Seriously) but it’s true. Sad place, happy place, hibernation place (guilty as charged.)  I listen to a lot of music when I am in a sad place to try and bring me back to a happy place, I sing loud, I sing strong and I sing totally out of key. I don’t care. It makes me happy…done. Now, I did (double gulp) use food  to make me happy and definitely still have to try and not to, but I am now aware of it. And, to impress you, I started to drink water–still hate it–because truly the times I think I am hungry, I just want to eat. I’m not actually hungry so now (no, I do not mean to sound santimonious, trust me) I start sipping the insufferable water from my gray (happy place) new water bottle. It doesn’t take a lot to make me happy, truly.

To those of you who read my earlier blog about my mother: as usual, “she is right, I am wrong” and “don’t use that tone on me even if it is on email, I’m still your mother.”  Oy.

  1. I wish I could sing now- but I’m in my office, so I shouldn’t compromise my ability to renew the lease. Because I like to sing loud and unfortunately it is often off-key… I don’t think I get enough practice.

    I usually do it in the car- I’m also awful at remembering lyrics… but when my daughter is with me she asks me to stop- and not politely,

    I know Ive overdone it when she has her ipod on.

    write on, girlfriend! (-;


  2. My happy place is Chico Hot Springs, Montana. A natural hot spring discovered in 1860. A resort was build around it. Every year, my sister and I visit. As we float in the hot spring at midnight, the steam from the hot spring ascends as the snowflakes descend. A little piece of heaven.

    We all have a happy places and our crappy places in life, but thank you for reminding me that I can choose to visit my happy place, if only in my mind.


  3. It’s good to know we are all still human, isn’t it? 🙂

    And you are most welcome! You’ll be hearing a lot from me if you keep making me laugh!

    I’m not as funny as you, but you are welcome to visit my blog… keep on writing, and now I’m going to give you some press via my twitter gang… because I shouldn’t be the only one laughing! I only have a few friends, and I can’t promise anyone else will comment, but you have definitely brought me some joy today! THANK YOU!
