I got excited about being able to buy a brand-new car.
Keith and I started spending our evenings brainstorming DIY projects for our house.
I became interested in sprinkler systems.
I started eagerly collecting coworkers' referrals for plumbers, electricians, contractors, etc.
Farmers' markets became part of our weekend staple.
We hired a housecleaner, lawn company and financial advisor.
I got interested in gardening.
I started raking our yard to clear dead grass and give our grass "space to breathe". Then got excited to come home to green buds in the yard.
I started memorizing our neighbors' names so we can greet them when we're walking the dogs.
Friends could talk about babies and I didn't make a gagging face.
I opened a retirement account.
I realized my ten-year high school reunion is only a year away, and I'm actually excited about it (maybe that 2nd part just makes me weird).
Dinner parties became one of the highlights of my weekend.
I started being more positive.
