Happy Sunday! Hope you’re having a great weekend & are looking forward to an even better week!
This week, I AM HAPPY that the 4th of July fireworks are over! Ohmigosh, do I hate those! It wouldn’t be so bad if they set them off only the one day, but when they start a full two weeks early & set them off every single night, I just want to go out there shove them where the sun don’t shine, y’know? Not only are they annoying—& the really loud ones make me jump every damn time —but they scare the crap out of The Kittehs & I do not handle it well when something bothers my cats. :evilmonkey
I AM HAPPY that I got a new back cover blurb for my November Harlequin Desire, SECRETS, LIES & LULLABIES. Did you see it? If not, you can read it on the book page I created for the book here on HeidiBetts.com. No cover yet, but the blurb is there, & it’s really good.
I AM HAPPY that we recently got a free HBO preview weekend, & I was able to record a bunch of movies to watch on the Torture Cycle. (I’m even happier that I was actually able to keep up without my DVR running out of space. That was a minor miracle, really. :angel ) So far, I’ve watched The Hangover 2, Your Highness, Legion, Priest, & When in Rome.
And I recorded the final two Harry Potter movies, too. I’ve actually got them on DVD, but thought it would be easier to watch them this way. The problem is, I don’t remember the previous movie—Half-Blood Prince, I think—so I’m waiting to catch that on one of ABCFamily’s infamous Harry Potter weekends. Then I can watch the last two parts of the series.
Finally, I AM HAPPY to have discovered a great new pet supply website called Wag.com. I only checked them out because I got a coupon in the mail. I certainly didn’t need anything. But then I discovered that they carry several items I’ve been looking for for a really long time…at pretty decent prices. I was able to get two refillable incline scratchers (plastic base, takes cardboard inserts), dental chews, & a bunch of snackies. The Kittehs are delighted, & so am I!
If anybody is interested in checking them out, they carry items for dogs, cats, birds, fish, reptiles, & other small animals. And if you use the Promotional Code HAB46785, you’ll not only receive 10% off your first order, but Wag.com will donate up to $25 to the Best Friends Animal Society. How’s that for an awesome incentive? :patrick
Allrighty! That’s just about all the happiness I can stand. :happysun How about you? Tell us what great stuff is going on in your life this week, so we can do a little happy dance with you. :chickendance
Now to announce the winner of Friday’s Free Book Friday giveaway—The Devil Who Tamed Her by Johanna Lindsey…

Heidi, It’s always nice to find a new place for pet supplies. I remember when i figured out that Amazon.com had just about everything I could ever hope to want for my rats. lol I do seem to go a little overboard at times, but they’re so totally worth it.
Right now I am super happy that I seem to have stopped the flow of ants into my apartment..all by myself.
Hubby wasn’t home so I got out his caulking tube and started caulking along all the walls in the seams. *I may have went a little caulk crazy, caulking in all the seams…everywhere* The ants are no more…lol
Then I saw that there were so many ant trails outside and remember doing research for an article I wrote a while back that Crystal kitty litter will kill bugs because it dries them out. So I put some of the fresh step kitty litter in my coffee grinder and then sprinkled it all over outside and this morning…no ants. bwahahaha

You should check out Wag.com, Mary. They carry “small animal” stuff & I thought they offered some pretty good deals…esp. if you’ve got a coupon/promo code. :howyoudoin
In fact, they just sent me another discount offer, & now I have to go back & order more. I mean, I *can’t* let it expire when I could get something the kittehs will love, can I? :patrick4

Congrats to Crystal! :cheer
My sister’s dog hates the sound of thunder and fireworks… she was hiding for awhile because of the neighbors setting off some near us… that poor pup.
I am happy my weekend was calm and relaxing.

Well I *thought* the idiots around here we all done on July 4th, because July 5th was silent (it did help having a burn ban) but by July 6th they found more and forgot all about the burn ban so they’ve been going every night since then. Oops—maybe I should save that for Monday’s Moan & Groan.
We spent the day (and yes–in the HEAT) at the Kentucky Ren Faire. So much fun, but very hot. B’girl has decided that now she wants to be a Fae character so it’s Google search time for Fae name and how to make wings. Did find a pretty easy DIY wing instruction, now just need to find time to make them. And some wire hangers (that is probably going to be the hardest part).
We are getting some storms and rain now and the temps are finally below 100 degrees. Guess I’m going to have to go find my jacket now.
Long work day tomorrow, but I still love my new job.
