Day 2280: Are we having fun yet?

“Are we having fun yet?” was something I expressed several times yesterday, as I

  • started packing for my trip to L.A.,
  • grappled with money issues,
  • added a new verse to a song,
  • dealt with hurt feelings,
  • talked to people about hope and hopelessness,
  • had the self control to have the soup instead of the very fun-looking and highly caloric  pasta dish in the hospital cafeteria,
  • couldn’t find my folder filled with group therapy worksheets and exercises,
  • glanced at the news, and
  • facilitated two groups, one of which focused on fun.

Are we having fun yet in today’s blog post?

Are we having fun yet as I share this story about when I decided to have fun earlier this week?

Wednesday morning, after my second night in a row of insomnia, I looked at the weather app on my iPhone to decide how to dress for the day.  I saw that the day was going to start out cold but become considerably warmer, so I decided to wear a very light coat.  When I was driving to work, I looked at the app again and noticed that I had been looking at the weather for Cupertino, California, instead of the weather for Boston, Massachusetts, which was going to start cold and stay that way.  I decided to have fun with it, so I laughed instead of complaining whenever I felt the cold.

Are we having fun yet trying to guess what music I’m going to share in today’s post?

YouTube suggests that I share this one:

 

Are you having fun yet?  If not, how might you have more fun today?  Would it help to leave a fun comment?

Have I expressed my gratitude yet for all those who helped me create this are-we-having-fun-yet post and — of course — for YOU?

  1. I think we’ve all gotten ready for the weather in Cupertino on one day or another, Ann. Oh, what fun the phone folks must have imagining what they set off with default settings.

  2. Janis Moulton

    I remember some very fun times with you long ago! Love that song. I’ve never heard it. Thanks.

  3. It’s always fun to pay a visit to your blog Ann

  4. It’s funny to me that perfectionism is listed as something that gets in the way of fun. Sometimes, when I’m writing something and working hard to get it just right I lose all sense of time. The fun is in the effort. And, as Billie Jean King says, pressure is a privilege.

  5. This was a fun blog. And it’s fun getting your advice to your groups. Always type your zip code into the weather app.

  6. Fun as can be with those fur ball cats!

  7. i love hearing what other people think is fun. So often what I consider “fun” doesn’t register as exciting enough to others. I think reading a book is fun. My husband says that I’m a “cheap date!” LOL!
