Okay, can we talk about how this week is going so slow?! And how my perfect black pants are no more?! And how the weekend, seriously, just needs to get here RIGHT now?!

To be fair, this hasn't been a bad week at all. Last night we got our Chinese, and completed our multi-day celebration of Travis' birthday. And it was nice! It really was! But the days are taking forever, and work is blah, and my eating well thing isn't going nearly as well this week (although I am eating a plum right now, and it is a good plum!)... so its just really time for a nice long weekend.

So, I've been thinking a lot lately about what I really want from life. I don't think my "requirements" are really that complicated or over the top. I want
  1. A partner that loves me completely and supports me. Someone that makes me happy and compliments my personality.
  2. A stable and complete family that supports me.
  3. Friends that are loyal and that I have a great time with.
  4. A job that I enjoy, at least more then not, and where I feel like I am accomplishing something.
  5. A home. Not just a house, but somewhere that I can really call home... that I am comfortable in and happy in, a place that I always want to return to and where I plan to stay.
  6. Comfort with myself... this means both with who I am and how I feel in my physical body.
After looking at that list I realize that maybe I'm not doing so bad, huh?! Number one, two, and three are perfect, dead on, right. Travis is the perfect partner, soon to be the perfect husband, that I have always longed for. My family, new and soon-to-be, are wonderful people and so supportive. They genuinely love Trav and I for who we are. And I have incredible friends... both old (Heather, 20 years and counting), and new (or newer).
I'm not there on four, but that is something I can work on in time.
Five and six, I'm halfway there... I'm working on the physical part of six. Five... I do love our house, its not where I want to stay forever, but I'm happy here for now and for a while, and that's good enough for now.

Its just good once in a while to take a step back and see what is really important to you in life, and what you have.

Okay, back to work... with a little more bounce in my step.
