What Makes You Happy?

Alpha and I had a very short, extremely sweet conversation on the phone yesterday. Okay, so it was sweet until interrupted by the child I was trying not to holler at...

Anyways,

Him:
"You should write baby."
Me:
"Why, because you don't want to (insert extremely physical and demanding profession here) anymore? It's not like I would make money on it anyways."
Him:
"No, because it would make you happy. And, while I do see you as an extension of myself, you are also your own person with your own dreams."
Me:
"Aww, that is really sweet. Dammit kid, please quit screwing around and do your English! Uh, sorry. This was a super sweet conversation for a minute there."
Him:
"Lol. It's okay.
It doesn't matter if you make money off of it or not. What matters is that it would make you happy."
Me:
"Yea...I guess I'll go ahead and get Word when our taxes come in"

Lack of the proper program has been a great excuse for years. Whatever am I going to do without said excuse?

I could easily come up with another excuse, or I could actually write something...


In other news, Alpha took the temperamental overachiever to work with him today. Uh huh, it's been a gloriously lazy day. Surprisingly frustration free too.
Okay, so there was that one moment when the little one lodged a complaint about me using a couple pieces of his cucumber on my eyes, but he forgave me.

  1. Isn't that the most wonderful thing to hear: do what makes you happy? I think you should write, you have a lot of knowledge to offer. Just my opinion :)

  2. Yes, write! It's very energising and satisfying. Forget Word, try LibreOffice, it's free!

      I'll look into it.
      I like word because of it's editing features, and the fact that it seems to be the required software for most projects.

  4. I've said all along you should write, :)
    I love that he said, "It doesn't matter if you make money off it or not. What matter is that it would make you happy." How sweet!!! Alpha surprises me every once in a while, lol.

  7. Listen to Alpha. You should write, you are great and if it is something that makes you happy, even better. Write for you, but I will definitely be a fan.

  10. That's so very sweet :) And you should! Another free option is Open Office - they have a full suite that is completely compatible with MS Office.

      have used it before, and it does beat works by a mile--nothing is more frustrating than typing up a paper and having someone tell you they can't even open it lol.
