So how is everyone’s year shaping up so far? Can you believe we’re halfway through January already?
This week, I AM HAPPY that the writing is rocking. Took me a while to dive back in after my surgery, but I seem to be pretty much off the meds now, & mostly back to normal. If normal means completely changing my writing routine—writing by hand instead of typing & staying up late, then going to bed early. Not sure I love every aspect of that, but since I am making progress, I don’t want to rock the boats with minor complaints.
I AM HAPPY, too, that Senior Kitty (a.k.a. Precious) seems to be feeling much better. There were a couple days last week when she wasn’t eating or would throw up if she did, & I was starting to get concerned. But she must have just had a minor tummy ache or something, because now she seems absolutely fine. Thank goodness. With her advanced age, I worry about her, you know, & watch her like a hawk.
I AM HAPPY that there was a Firefly marathon on Science Channel yesterday. Firefly always makes me happy, but marathons of beloved shows make for great background noise while I write!
I AM HAPPY that Diagnosis Murder has returned to Encore Suspense. I wish it were on a bit more often & maybe at a different time, but…love this show & have been so sad it was off the air. Kept expecting a channel like Cloo or Hallmark to pick it up, but they never did. I also wouldn’t have missed it quite so much if they’d ever come out with the entire series on DVD, but I think they stopped after Season 3. (The bastards! :moon )
I AM HAPPY, too, that as long as I’m up late writing, anyway, I’ve been discovering some great late-night television. (I forgot how great TV can be at three in the morning. :drinkup ) This weekend, I caught & wrote my way through two absolute faves: Music and Lyrics & Wimbeldon. Yay!
Okay, so this week’s gratitude list is a little TV-centric. But what do you expect? It’s the dead of winter & I’m a writer behind on my deadline. I might as well be living in an igloo in the middle of the Arctic Circle. :peekaboo
So how about you? Have anything you’re happy about or grateful for that you’d like to share this week? And just having fun in front of the boob tube is totally acceptable. :muahaha

This week I am happy for a few things. I am happy that Vampire Diaries is back on…and what the heck is going on between Klaus and caroline?
I am happy that my brother, sister in law, dad and step mother are coming to my birthday next month..but shhh it’s supposed to be a surprise. LOL Like I’m not going to know something is up when my brother is calling just to talk to my hubby…c’mon…lol
I am happy that my little rat Brodie is going to be fine after having to take him to the Vet’s last week. He had a little abscess on him tummy and was starting to breathe hard so I thought he had an upper respiratory infection. Turns out he didn’t and the rat I thought was part Dwarf rat, is actually just the runt of the litter and his lungs are under developed. He’s going to breathe a little harder than his brother’s but he should be just fine. He might not live as long as the other three but he’s a happy little guy, so that’s what matters. And the abscess is healing up fine too.

I’m so glad your little rat is going to be okay. I’ve had cats with abscesses before…they’re yucky, but treatable, thank goodness. And I’m a sucker for the runt of the litter. Sad that he may have health problems because of it, but I’d have probably rescued him first for that very reason. :thumbsup

all four are brothers from the same litter and when I saw them I wanted two of them. But I thought there were only three in the cage. So I talked Ken into letting me adopt three and then when the lady pulled up the house little Brodie was sitting there all alone..I looked at Ken and said, We can’t leave him there by himself..lol
I’m glad I adopted all 4 of them and they are happy little guys.

So nice that you have the day off tomorrow—I’m sure you’ll take full advantage. :heart
Congrats on keeping up the health kick…I’m trying, tho I’ve got a few Achilles’ heels I’m fighting at the moment. :drinkup
And I’ve got laundry waiting for me, too. But it can go right on waiting, as far as I’m concerned. :runrun

I’m happy because the birds have finally shown up at my bird feeders. This winter I was late in getting the seed out and it took them a while to notice. I’m also really happy because I found some great deals on our favorite evergreen scented WoodWick candles. Oh, finding a great deal always makes me happy!

I love birds! I esp. love looking out & seeing them at the feeders during the winter & seeing all their little footprints in the snow! :blowkiss
Haven’t been very good about keeping seed out so far, tho…maybe because we haven’t really gotten much snow yet, so I keep thinking they’ve still got natural food sources to pick at. Will have to be better from now on. :oops
