Reasons to be Cheerful, Part 1

So, here I am struggling through day 2 and I thought it might be good to have a Reasons to be Cheerful thread. The idea is to come up with one reason why I should be cheerful each day. Not sure if this is the right place to post but my reason for today is simply that I have yesterday under my belt. Please join in if you wish. Frankie x

I'm cheerful that I still have some rather hot pepper puree's in the pantry that I made this summer with the extra time I had usually spent drinking. I'm also especially cheerful that my pepper-loving-wife and I are still planning meals together sober that we may indulge our hot-headedness in more sustainable ways (the last batches are paint-peelers with more bhut jolokia than recommended). I'm glad to see you too Frankie!

I am happy because I woke up sober! I will enjoy my morning coffee and I will be able to eat breakfast! I will have a productive day instead of being drunk or hungover!

I'm cheerful about the rain and fog. We are breaking out of a winter storm here in southeast Virginia. Temperatures have gone from records lows to 50 and rain is melting the ice and snow. If it had been nice and sunny all week, maybe I'd be bummed. But after the cold, it feels like spring.

I am cheerful because I have a great job and family who still believe in me.

I am also a bit envious of the maple pecan danish it's sounds delish.

I like the title of your thread, inspired by Ian Dury?
I am cheerful because I had a drinking dream last night and it was so great to wake up and realize it was just a dream!

One reason you should be cheerful: You're not hungover since you didn't drink last night.
Another reason to be cheerful: no regrets, phone calls, or texts about things you did while under the influence of alcohol last night.

I'm cheerful just to know that I'm not the only one who Loves Ian Dury!

Why don't you get back into bed?

I'm cheerful today because my cat has been chasing her tail. She amuses me.

And because I'm not hungover. I know you said one, but I had to mention this one.

Great thread!

Cheerful for a quiet, serene day. The dogs aren't running there mouths all day long. Most importantly it's a sober day.
