Happy Sunday

Happy Sunday!

I hope you had a great week & are having an even better weekend, with lots of fun stuff to share today!

This week, I am sad that I forgot to mention last week that I AM HAPPY I got the nicest note from Darling Bobbi Dumas, thanking me for the book & goodies I sent her recently after her Free Book Friday.  As I’ve mentioned before, you don’t have to thank me for your Dungeon-won prizes, but I’d be lying if I said I didn’t enjoy hearing from you & receiving such nice mail in my mailbox.  So thank you, Bobbi, that was very sweet of you. :blowkiss

I AM HAPPY that I got my annual physical exam out of the way last week.  Still not sure why I do that every year, considering there’s never anything wrong with me & it seems like a waste of time, but better safe than sorry, I guess.  And it is kind of fun to hear your doctor say you’re in “excellent” shape with just a wee bit of awe in his voice. *snicker*

I AM HAPPY, too, that my cholesterol has apparently fallen 30 points.  It was okay to begin with, but I was annoyed that it never budged a single digit even after I lost a hundred pounds.  I mean, you’d think completely changing one’s diet, cutting out all fried foods & meat for the most part would result in at least a teeny-tiny decline in cholesterol levels, right?  Nope. :angry   And now suddenly—BAM!  Maybe cholesterol takes a while to work out of your system…you know, like crack. :moon   Or maybe it’s the fact that I drink my weight in green tea every day.  But I’ve also been eating a lot of eggs, so maybe by next year it will be back up. LOL

As long as I was on a medical run, I hit the chiropractor, & I AM HAPPY that I haven’t had a headache since.  (Knock on wood.)  I tend to get cluster headaches, & they’re usually due to either stress or being out of whack spine-wise.  And when you sound like a bag of Jiffy Pop during an adjustment…yeah, you know you were crooked. :runrun

Last but definitely not least, I AM HAPPY that I don’t have to write a big ol’ check I thought I was going to have to write.  Yes, it’s tax related again :curses but for once the numbers added up in my favor. Yay!  (The bad news is, I’ll probably have to write that check this time next year, but I’m going to enjoy the reprieve while I’ve got it. :kitty )

That about does it for me this week—how about you?  Let us know what great stuff has been going on in your life this week, or even just what you’re happy about on a daily basis!

Remember:  Count your blessings today, for tomorrow is “Moan & Groan Monday”…at least on the HappyBookers loop. :peekaboo

    :jumping Congrats Cindy. Stressful week at work, so was thankful when weekend came along. But weekends are toooo short. :rolf

  3. Ruth Chestnut says:

    Heidi, I see that you are reading Micah. Are you enjoying it and have you read any of Laurell’s other Anita Blake books. I just love her imagination, or maybe it’s the sex scenes she writes. lol

    • Heidi says:

      I love LKH! I’ve read all of the Anita Blake & Merry Gentry books from the very beginning. They used to be so good…her imagination is whack, that’s for sure…but I’ve gotta admit the sex is getting a little out of control for me. These days, they’re all like one big orgy w/ a little bit of paranormal thrown in. Really miss the focus being on the monster stuff.

      That being said, I can’t seem to stop reading them & I wish she’d come out with another Merry book already. A Lick of Frost was the absolute best of those, but I want to know what happens next!

    Congrats Cindy. I am ecstatic that my son has married the mother of his children. I was touched and amazed at the beautiful ceremony they put together and I really enjoyed going to Sedona, AZ for it. I am relived that our house was unharmed by storms in our absence. I am thankful for my brother in-law who cared for our kitties while we were away.

    • Heidi says:

      Oh, boy, I remember prom shopping. Nightmare. I was a big girl, too, so I feel her pain. If I knew where my dresses were, I’d offer to lend you one. lol

    Congrats Cindy! And WOOHOO healthy Heidi!!!

    Today it’s a very bittersweet gratitude day for me. I’m very grateful that we (my family/friends) were spared from the devastating tornadoes. 7 miles northeast and 8 miles north were very hard hit from big tornadoes (EF4s). Two towns are completely gone and 3 more are close to being nothing. One school was a direct hit with a few students still inside, but all were miraculously unharmed. There is still a lot of shock at the sheer destruction that they left behind.

    I’m very thankful for a community(ies) that know how to support one another in times of need and got to see that first hand today. It’s pretty good when you have to send people to other collection places because ours had no more room to take items donated. I’m still just in awe of it.

    I’m also very proud of my oldest who had his first disaster mission (and hopefully his last) with C.A.P. He was sent in to search cars for victims (found none, thankfully!) and then the next day to search houses. He and his unit carried themselves very professionally. It was quite a way to spend his first day of spring break, but he was ready and out the door as soon as he got the call.

    • Heidi says:

      Your kid is gonna save lives someday, Laura…how awesome is that? :thumbsup

      But of course, that vision is sullied by the fact that when I read he was searching cars for victims, I immediately flashed on The Walking Dead…searching vehicles for non-zombie survivors. Oy – I need to get out more. LOL :drinkup

  11. Heidi says:

    Thanks all for the nice words about my health. Yep, I’m in good shape (knock on wood) & will try to stay that way so I can keep bringing you awesome books & corny jokes. Cuz you know…somebody’s gotta do it. :drinkup

  12. Laura J. says:

    I spent some time today helping collect items for the tornado relief and WOW can I just say that it was an amazing experience. There was just an outpouring of love. What they expected was to fill to equipment trailers (small utility type that use to carry their dj equipment) and what they ended up filling was 2 semi-trailers, a horse trailer, 4/5 school buses, numerous flatbed trailers, a horse trailer (one that carries at least 4 horses), several pick-up trucks (with and without extended cabs) and collected $6,000!!!!! This is all going directly to those that need it.

    My hope is that someday this kind of outpouring of love will be something that is done daily and not during a natural disaster.
