I am a sahd,happily married,2 kids and I am looking forward to cooking for eleven people on Christmas day

I am shocked to see so many unhappy people out there who hate there inlaws/OH.

Are happy people in the minority?

I am happy - dd will be home from uni and ds1 will come to stay over Christmas and having had a minor op recently I have to say that DH has looked after me wonderfully.

I admit I do miss having the large family Christmas that we used to have but will see a lot of the rest of my family on Boxing Day.

I think there are a lot of stressed people, rather than unhappy.

HecTheHallsWithBoughsOfHolly Sun 05-Dec-10 19:15:36

Nah. I'm happy.

I'm very happy! Life is going remarkably well for me at the moment.

As for Christmas, we're off to my Dad's in France, and there's no conflict cos DH's family are Jewish!

I'm happy, but my MN persona probably isn't grin

I do alot of complaining on this website.

I'm happy {fsmile}

If you show dislike for others then you'll surely receive it.

Life is what you make it, a miserable face brings miserable thoughts and miserable reactions from others.

I love smiling at people and getting one back.

I am happy too grin Very happily married, have a beautiful DD, have a fab life too. Long may it continue.

ProfYaffle Sun 05-Dec-10 19:19:14

We're a very happy household grin

I even used my first festive smiley to make the point.

I am quite happy.

It's not that often you need advice on how to make yourself feel worse, but quite often useful to get advice on how to make yourself feel better.

I'm happy.

I love DS, enjoy my job. I'm very happily single and generally very content.

I'm mostly happy. I have a beautiful wife and 3 brilliant kids in a nice house. I like my life and don't want it to change. I love my job too, which is always a bonus!

Had a few bumps along the way, but at this moment, everything is going good

mistletoeploppy Sun 05-Dec-10 19:25:39

I'm ecstatic <one-upmanship grin>

Tee2072 Sun 05-Dec-10 19:27:10

Not only am I happy, but I like my inlaws and am looking forward to having them joIn us for Christmas.

MiasmARGGG Sun 05-Dec-10 19:28:57

I'm happy and pleased with and immensely thankful for my lot smile

fluffles Sun 05-Dec-10 19:32:21

i'm mostly happy (very happy at home, bit unhappy at work)

but people don't post on an internet support forum when they are happy.. they post when they need support!!

so YABU, most of us are mostly happy grin

[though it does seem to me a lot of people on MN dislike their friends - what's that all about, surely the definition of friend is a person you like and choose to be with??]

PatFig Sun 05-Dec-10 19:34:52

jolly good

I am glad iabu

TheCrackFox Sun 05-Dec-10 19:36:07

I'm pretty happy, I have a lovely DH, 2 beautiful boys and a lovely house and plenty of brilliant friends. This year has been a bit tough but I think we are going to have a great year next year. smile

I'm happier now ( and have been for at least 18 months) than at pretty much any point in the last 20 years.

Life is very good at the moment and I appreciate every day with the full knowledge of how quickly things can change for the worse.

ivykaty44 Sun 05-Dec-10 19:37:48

no you are not the only happy person on mn - but if all the happy people moaned about being happy in AIBU then it would be silly grin

I am a happy bod

SantasMooningArse Sun 05-Dec-10 19:38:18

I am happy.

Sometimes I feel on here that I must not say that as I am on a low income through disability and I expect someone to come and say 'my taxes should not allow you to be happy.

but happiness doesn;t have to equal perfect- just the absence of misery. As long as we are all healthy (autism is different to ill health after all) and can eat and are together then I am happy.
