I'm still happy, and I still love my husband!

One of my favorite bloggers is the Happy Husband.
He writes:
"For those of you who have been wondering, I’m still a Happy Husband. I’m just not a blogging husband anymore. Even so, I still think in terms of blogging sometimes. If I’d had the time and inclination over the past few months to actually put my thoughts on the web, these are a few of the things I would have written about. We’re having another baby. Tomorrow. Literally."

Congratulations to the "Happy" family! And what a cute picture of his newborn baby girl!

Like Mr. Happy, life just gets in the way of blogging, especially through the very busy holiday season. I've been working full-time as a floral designer in a retail store. That's a sure-fire formula for stress!

But, I'm still happy! This was my best winter ever, and I rejoice daily over the lifting of the chronic depression that has plagued me for more than two years. There were recent studies that suggested that shopping has "therepeutic" benefits, so perhaps the retail environment has been helpful. Certainly, the bright lights, colorful displays, cheery music, and festive fragrances were healing to my senses.

And, yes, I STILL dearly love my husband! More on that in my next post ...
