Happy Sunday

Happy Sunday!  How’s your weekend going so far?

And what are we HAPPY about this week?  Hopefully, a lot! :eeee

I AM HAPPY with the beautiful, warm weather that’s finally moved in, but be prepared for a Monday Moan & Groan (see the HappyBookers YahooGroup) if it gets too much warmer.  I like sunny & warm, but not hot & sweaty. :hotstuff

I AM HAPPY that I discovered Veronica Mars via repeats on SOAP Channel.  Yeah, yeah, I know it’s been cancelled for years now & I probably should have caught it when it was originally on.  For some reason, it just didn’t appeal to me back then.  But I’m trying to rectify that now & am really liking it.  I don’t even mind the angsty high school setting (which I think is why I avoided it to begin with) because the mysteries & characterization is so good.

Are any of you Veronica Mars fans?  Who’s your favorite—or least favorite—character?

I AM HAPPY, too, that I got to see all the way to the last episode of Season 1 (of Veronica Mars) before my DVR has a thunderstorm-related fit & messed up my recordings.  I must wait now for those episodes to repeat before I can pick up again & start watching Season 2, but I’ve got a great season ender to reminisce about in my head until that happens.

And I AM HAPPY that some stuff is going on behind that scenes that’s bound to send me into a stress-induced near-nervous breakdown. (Or should that be nervous near-breakdown? :scratchhead )  It will be in a good way, & I’m kind of excited about it, but still…there will be stress, & probably no small amount of hair loss & hallucination before all is said & done. :Cukoo

Your turn!  Tell us all the great stuff going on with you this week…the stuff that makes you smile or chuckle or feel grateful to be alive.  And then we can do a funky little chicken dance to help you celebrate. :chickendance

    Happy Sunday. I am glad I went to see the Avengers with the hubby yesterday. It was a blast. I am not happy my neighbors Cinco de Mayo fiesta lasted well into Seis de Mayo. :yawn
    I am happy I will be spending some time with my flowers this morning hopefully before it gets too hot. Hope everyone has a lovely day.

      Oooh, was The Avengers good? I definitely want to see that one. Probably won’t be till it comes on TV, but still…it’s on my list. And I feel like I’m gearing up for it a bit by finally watching Captain America & Iron Man 2. Thor’s on my list, too, but I haven’t gotten to it yet. :bubble

    I am happy that I went out and saw the Super moon last night. it was pretty cool even if my camera sucks and didn’t take any good pictures. I’m happy hubby had a reason to take out his telescope and use it. lol Men and their toys.

    I’m happy that a friend of mine thought of me when she came into possession of a huge box of new books and sent me 15 of them. Woot woot!

    I’m happy I’m finally finished shopping for my daughter’s 21st birthday presents. I love online shopping.

    • Heidi says:

      Oh, man, I love friends like that! :eeee

      I went out to look at the moon last night, too, but even tho it was big, it didn’t look all *that* much closer to me. Maybe it was where I was standing, the angle or such, but it was like—yeah, it’s bright, nice, but it didn’t hit my eye like a big pizza pie. :lolol

    Happy Sunday and Congrats Quilt lady!

    I am happy for Vicodin today!! I had my 1st and hopefully last root canal on Thursday!! 4 hours in a dentist chair…and I have to go back in 2 weeks for the permanent crown….I’d rather have a tiara with real diamonds! :Cukoo

    • Heidi says:

      Oh, boy. Sorry to hear that. Altho Vicodin is niiiiiiiice. Just take it easy. Take a pill, lie down in front of the boob tube & zone out. Don’t try to do anything else. You’ll feel better in no time! :patrick4

    • Laura J. says:

      Do I call you Amy Farrah Fowler or Dr. House? :lolol

      • Heidi says:

        Put it on me! Put it on me! Put it on me!

        I’m a princess! I’m a princess! I’m a princess!


        • Laura J. says:

          BEST BBT EPISODE EVER!!!!!

          • Laura J. says:

            PS…I think we are going to have to call Hollie AFF. We’ve seen how excited she gets when she grabs the halo. She’s definitely more AFF than Dr. House. :thumbsup

Now i’m trying to get ready for her graducation in 3wks but not gonna get all worked up about it!Have a good one!

    • Heidi says:

      Oh, boy. Aren’t proms stressful! But so glad you made it thru & she had fun! Graduation will be an even bigger deal—but not fancy dresses necessary. :thumbsup

    Oh goodness. I have all of the VM series! I love Weevil. He’s just so much fun. Wallace and Mac are my other favorite characters!

    It’s been a good week.

    The oldest is officially home for the summer (and has a job!!!). The 2 youngest have 3 weeks of school left and for the first time in I don’t remember how long we are actually ending the school year on the original date set when they set up the school calendar last year.

    B’girl was inducted into the National Elementary Honor Society (it’s like the National Honor Society that high schools and middle school kids get into but they have one for Elementary now. Yes is already planning to be in all three).

    I’m waiting to hear if I have a new job. One that I would like very, VERY much. But even if it doesn’t work out on this one, I’ve found there are other places to try. I’m determined. Please send me prayers, good thoughts, & luck!! I had hoped to hear last week from the second person to interview me, but didn’t but I spoke to the first person and no one has been hired for the job yet and she was going to check with person #2. I figured by calling they know I am definitely interested.

    And I can say (well it’s hearsay, but it’s reliable) that Avengers is AWESOME!!! They all say that The Hulk was their favorite (he has the funny lines).

    OH, if you have not tried to the Crystal Lite Appletini drink mix do so (it’s non-alcoholic, but I’m sure you can add it in)!! That stuff is CRACK!!! They also had mojitos, margaritas, pomtini. No sugar added. :cool

    • Heidi says:

      Sounds like you & the kiddos had a GREAT week. Good for you! :eeee

      I’ll have to add those Crystal Lights to my shopping list. They sound yummy. :cool

      • Laura J. says:

        Walk don’t run!!!! The perfect summer drink!!!

        And thanks…I look at it and I realize it was a great week! It seems like I haven’t really had a “great” one in a while. Lots of “no bad”, but not many GREAT. :cheer
