Happy Sunday! I hope everyone’s doing okay, what with Hurricane Irene & our recent earthquake. (The East Coast isn’t doing very well this week, is it? :vampire )
But I’m happy to report that—as far as my limited knowledge of astrology goes—Mercury in Retrograde has officially passed & we can hopefully get back to a less crappy version of normal! :elvira
So…setting aside any miseries Mercury in Retrograde brought on…what are you happy about &/or grateful for this week?
I AM HAPPY to finally have a brand-spanking-new hot water heater! If you’ve been following my tweets, you know what a complete pain in the butt this was. :purplebat Apparently, the darn thing has been deteriorating from the inside out for over a year, but did I have a clue? No, I did not. Thankfully, it’s under a lifetime warranty, Whirlpool was wonderful about that. No arguments, not beating around the bush. But to make sure the unit really was dead & needed to be replaced, they first asked me to replace a heating element to see if it fixed the problem…& kept us from having to deal with the issue of actually getting a new water heater into the house & the old one out. Total PITA either way, but sadly the replacement part did not work, so we really did have to go with a total swap. The whole ordeal took forever & the guy who installed the new unit was kind of a jerk (knew everything, hated animals), but it’s done now, & the new water heater is slick & shiny & energy efficient. Yay!
I AM HAPPY that I’ve found a new chiropractor & am feeling soooooo much better than last week. Don’t ask me what I did—it wasn’t an accident or injury (although I wasn’t treating my body very well while dealing with the dang hot water heater)—but something happened somewhere that made my shoulder ache & put my hip & entire left leg out of whack. At first it was just a nuisance, but the one day it hurt so much I could barely walk. I was limping around like Dr. House & really, really needed a cane! That was the day I decided to get off my butt & actually find a new chiropractor instead of just talking about it. So I did! He’s very nice, very cute, & very good with is hands. Unfortunately, he’s also married, so I’ll have to stick with just letting him adjust my spine. :vamp
And I AM HAPPY I finally got to see Angels & Demons. Yeah, yeah, it’s been on my DVR for a while now, but it’s a long one, so I kind of had to work myself up to it. Then I heard it was going to be on USA & thought, Oh, boy—I’d better watch the full, unedited version before I catch parts of it on regular TV. I’ve since discovered that USA plans to air it “unedited & uncut” so I probably wouldn’t have had to rush :face but oh, well. I’ve seen it now & loved it (totally figured it out, but the journey was oodles of fun *vbg*), & will likely add it to my collection, right along with The Da Vinci Code.
Your turn! Tell us your happys & your gratefuls for the week. (And yes, I realize those probably aren’t real words, but let’s pretend they are. :fangsmiley )
