I’ll start. :Pretty
This week, I am very grateful that the scratch on Simon’s eye wasn’t as bad as it could have been, & that it’s healing up beautifully. He doesn’t exactly love the ointment I have to put in twice a day, but he’s handled it like a trouper & has even gone back to fighting with the other kitties, which we all know is how he got hurt in the first place. :angeldevil
I’m happy that my exercise bike is once again fixed. It took some doing to get the guy out here… I called & scheduled an appointment for two days after it broke, but no one ever showed. When I called back, they had me down for a week & a half later. Huh?!? How exactly was I supposed to get confused over “Wednesday, November Third” & “Friday, November Twelfth”? Yeah, didn’t happen; totally their goof, because I know what I heard. But they were able to fit me in a tad earlier than the 12th, which was nice.
And the funny thing is that while my bike was down, I dragged out my old Tae Bo DVD & tried that again. Haven’t done it in years, & I honestly didn’t think I’d be able to get through the whole thing without either passing out or taking frequent breaks. But I did! I’d forgotten how much I love it, too, so I ended up actually enjoying not having my bike to ride. And I’m going to try to work Tae Bo back into my workout rotation. :hothot
I’m thankful that this was my birthday week, not because I’m a year older, but just because it was fun. And because—to paraphrase a quote from NewsRadio—it means I didn’t die partway through the year. *snicker* It also gives me the chance to once again remind everyone that I’m only 29 years old. I am! Ask anyone who’s ever asked me my age & gotten more than the hairy eyeball as a response. :winkwink
Know what else makes me unaccountably happy this week? Buffy the Vampire Slayer is back on TV thanks to Chiller Channel. I think everyone with a pulse or a lick of taste whatsoever will agree with me that Buffy rocks!!! And even though I own the entire collection on DVD—don’t we all?—it’s so much more fun to catch it on TV. (At least it is for me.) I also love that it’s on now, while I’m working on one of my very own vampire stories. It can inspire me daily! :surrprisse
Speaking of vampires, I am back to working on MUST LOVE VAMPIRES (formerly Vamps in Vegas) with a vengeance. No surprise that the NJRW conference threw me off quite a bit—as did stopping right in the middle of a super-hot love scene, which is never a good idea—but I’ve finally caught up (knock on wood!), re-focused myself, & been able to jump back in. And I’m loving this story, let me tell you!
So that’s about it for me this week. Nothing spectacular, but a fun week with lots to be grateful for, all the same.
How about you? What are you thankful for on this bright & sunny Happy Sunday?
And of course we have a Free Book Friday winner to announce today, as well. :party
