Tomorrow’s the day we break $1,000. I can feel it in my bones.

But I’ll bet I could do better.

That’s bleak.

So I’m trying to do better about getting more sleep, which was completely stymied last night when I wasn’t able to get out to knitting night until 9pm, then had to stop by the store on the way home, then had to answer some Jayne hat mail that stacked up while I was in Richmond Tuesday and catching up on Wednesday. So I turned to a copy of Prevention magazine I had on hand (thanks for the subscription, Mom!) that had tips for waking up refreshed. I quote,

Note good things to come
Before going to bed, put a sticky note on your alarm clock reminding you of something fun or exciting that’s happening the next day. “Because of hormonal shifts that occur while we’re asleep, the majority of us wake up feeling a bit down or in a so-so mood,” says Dana Lightman, PhD, a behavioral psychologist in Abington, PA. “Remembering that you’re having lunch with a friend or that your favorite TV show will be on that night gives you a quick lift.”

Okay, let’s try that! You all know what an optimist I am, how I try to find the silver lining in any situation. So I got a sticky pad and a pen and thought for a moment.

And thought. And thought. And thought.

I couldn’t come up with a single exciting or fun thing that I had going on today. Nothing. Unbelievable. That made me feel worse than I did before I started this whole exercise.

So help me out, guys. I want to live vicariously. What’s something fun or happy that YOU have going on today?

In the meantime, I’m off to run errands and then pack up a hat and six kits.
