What Makes Us Happy

What a busy week...lots of activities...and lots of other stuff.
I just got hired as a substitute at a local gym's day care...cannot wait! Am waiting for the CORI to come in and expect to start in Sept. The hours are short shifts of only 3 hours...and I will be on call at first, but am expecting a permanent slot soon. It was great how this happened...called an old friend to see if she wanted to do a Pampered Chef show...small talk began and she told me she ran this program and they were looking for fill-ins. I filled an application and forgot about it. 2 weeks later...long story very excited.
Got me thinking what makes us happy.
