Where Does My Joy Come From - 13

Where does my joy come from today. ..
....found a Cher Step Aerobics video on youtube. I just love Step. I used to own that video in the 90's. I have to be really careful about my busted knees, but no other workout is mentally that relaxing to me. It's a box on the floor, and I have to concentrate so hard to get the steps right, and do the proper sequences, my mind just can't wander. Plus they announce the steps, so once I know what they are, all I have to do is listen and don't need to watch. Few things in life make me that happy. Hubby actually joined in for ten minutes and broke a nice sweat. SparkGuy says you do 10 minutes a day, you win.
.... got to work today. And had my favorite 2-11pm shift. With one of my favorite co-workers. I figured out that the money I make is almost exactly our monthly mortgage payment. So although I make much less than hubby, I now feel like I am putting a roof over our heads. Well, isn't that splendid.
..... on the way home I tuned into my mothers favorite radio channel in Germany (the internet is such an awesome invention), caught the morning show and they played a lot of songs I had not heard in years. Realized instead of getting homesick, I conjure up memories that I am able to enjoy like a warm bath. I wonder if that makes me a psychopath. Memories seem to be enough.
