Happy Sunday

Happy Sunday!  I hope everybody’s had a wonderful week & an even more beautiful weekend!

I’ve been in a pretty good mood this week, probably because I’m starting to feel better.  Oh, there are still some ouchie twinges & I keep my prescription bottles handy, & there are also still moments when I seem to need extra sleep or nod off unexpectedly, but when I’m up & around, I seem to do a better job of staying up & around. :hohoho   So I AM HAPPY about that.

I AM HAPPY, too, that I’m back to exercising again.  It doesn’t always feel terrific, so I’ve been taking it easy, but it really does feel great to be back on the Torture Cycle.  (Ironic that I’m glad to be riding it again when I call it that, huh? :butt )  So far, I have watched two episodes of Grimm—which I loooove!—& Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian—which was a lot better than I’d been expecting for a sequel.  I feel a horror movie coming on, though, since I’ve got way more of those on the DVR than anything else.

Speaking of television/movies, I AM HAPPY that there was recently a Harry Potter and the… marathon on ABCFamily Channel.  Small confession here:  I have not yet see the last three movies, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince & Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows, Parts 1 & 2.  Haven’t read the books, either, which is possibly an even worse sin.  Soooooo I recorded them all & have slowly been refreshing my memory with the earlier films so that I can get all caught up again before watching the last three.  (I forgot how darn good they are, by the way. :gobble )  And the other part of this that makes me so happy is that while I’ve been catching up on Harry Potter (said with a distinctly British accent), I have also slowly been getting back to my writing.  Yaaaaaaaaaay! More about that at a later date, but suffice to say…

PhotobucketI AM HAPPY to be back to writing.  I may not be burning up the keyboard, but I’m not sitting around like a zombie any longer, either.

And that is about it for me.  But it’s some really good stuff, which is why I’m happy. :pumpkin

Now it’s your turn—tell us what great stuff is going on for you this week & what you’re happy about! :candycane

    Thanks so much Heidi, I sent you my info. Woohoo!

    I am happy that I won a book this week.

    I am happy that I have all my christmas shopping done.

    and I am happy that the bathroom is finally painted.

    Congrats on all counts, Heidi!

    I am happy that I seem to be recovering from this cold on my own. I have a rather depressed immune system, and almost ALWAYS end up on drugs to get well. Not this time! I fought it with a rather odd selection of supplements, but they worked! yay! :icecube

    I am happy this vegan thing has worked. In January, I feared I was going to turn into some kind of social leper, but as it turns out we have survived Thxgiving, and Christmas celebrations just fine. And, I feel fabulous, which is even more important! :pie

    I am happy that as of recently, I have dropped 22 lbs. from said eating choices. No calorie counting, and I still eat potato chips way too often. Miracle diet! :booby

    Lastly, I am happy about Christmas. The last 2 years, due to personal crapola, Christmas hasn’t been the merriest of holidays. Now, though, I feel truly blessed and peaceful. :skate

    Good Sunday Morning!!!!! :turkey :turk

    I’m happy because TODAY…..I’m finally graduating from Docent training!!! I’m OFFICIAL!!! Okay actually I have been “official” (that means I can start volunteering and earning hours) since I passed my test. I’m happy that by the end of the day today I will also have all my required hours needed to remain active done for the “year”.

    I’m happy that today I get to spend all day at the zoo! I love that place and their efforts at creating a better world for people as well as animals. I always enjoyed visiting our zoo, but to know how much more good goes on there makes it all the more special. I really have a new appreciation for conservation groups!

    I’m also happy that only one more week of waking up early and dragging my kiddos to school!! The oldest is coming home on Friday, the other two are done until next year. I really hope I get a couple of days to sleep in. (That won’t happy until Monday since we have a gymnastics meet our gym is hosting and that means extremely LONG hours).

    I’m very happy Heidi that you are feeling more and more better! When you posted that you were getting back on the torture cycle…I knew that was a good thing in your recovery! :reindeer2

    Congrats to Mary and Dorothy!!

    Have been working on AAs (author alterations) for ON THE VERGE OF “I DO” all day, but it’s great to hear how much positive stuff is going on with the Darlings! Also sounds like we’re all in a terrific mood this week, which is an added plus! :tsspp
