    The Happy Post

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by ParanormalWriter, Aug 11, 2008.

    I saw there was a thread called "the angry post", so I thought I'd make a happy post thread. :) Name something brief here that makes you happy. Maybe its a bit of good news, or just something that's going right in the world.

    I'll start. I'm happy because I'm about to finish up my latest novel today. Also, happy that I just sold a new short story. Also happy that my youngest kid is potty-trainging well now. Also happy that it's Monday...

    Okay, I got carried away. Someone else's turn.

    I'm happy because last night my mushroom marsala cream sauce came out perfectly! It happens like one time out of five. I made the sauce for grilled porkchops and grilled yellow, orange, and red peppers. I made russette potato wedges in olive oil and rosemary for the side dish.

    Scrum-diddly-umptious! :D

    I'm happy because I always have horrible nightmares when I'm running a fever. (and sometimes when I'm not). Last night I ran a fever, but before bed I prayed I wouldn't have any nightmares, and, no nightmares!

    I'm happy for no better reason that being unhappy is a lesser choice.

    I"m happy because today, even though I got bumps, grazes and bruises from doing so, I was able to take my angels out for the day, BOTH OF THEM!!!! And they spent an hour and a bit at a massive park out of town and were both smiling for hours and went to bed smiling and talking about our adventure today. It filled me with joy and warmth that I was able to make them so very happy today. Oh and Ami got a princess dress too. She wanted it and I couldn't say no, but it made her happy, so it made me happy too! :)

    I am happy because of the friends I have here.
    I can talk about anything and nobody ever tells me
    I am an idiot or talk too much. You just let me natter on.
    I am also very happy because my husband has new hearing aids
    that actually work. Now we can sit and watch TV together and
    go out for dinner because the background noises don't give him a headache.

    I'm happy because of everything that has everything happened to me, is happening and will happen. To start off, I'm happy because I'm alive. (coughRavencough)

    Today I'm happy because I have a whole week left to relax before my classes start. Also because editing my latest novel is coming along faster than I'd expected. Also, because my broken dryer may be fixed today.

    I'm happy because... I'm listening to Jesse's Girl. I can't help it - it makes me happy.
    Oh oh! And tonight I'm going to watch the 3 Ninjas to remember my childhood. It'll be magical.

    I'm happy because I think I snagged the photo I've been waiting for over the past few days.

    I'll know for sure once I download it from the camera and look at it more closely.

    I'm happy because some friends are moving up here (5 minute drive instead of 120). Also because I don't work tomorrow (then again, I won't work until I find a new job. heh.)

    I am happy that the pedophile agreed to a mutual restraining order and we didn't have to argue it out in court. Now we are just waiting for him to be arrested. I hope they do it soon. (I wish the detective would call me back!)

    I'm happy to live in a counter where the pedophile gets a restraining order against the victims's family - oh sorry, that should be the angry post thread. But glad FoxyMomma has a restraining order nailed down against him.

    Also happy that tarnished is on improving terms with that friend.

    The rain like a light gray veil and vapor between the greenery, the cool, tingling breezes, sound of droplets landing, the strange faint scent, and the flavor of water...its all so nostalgic.

    You'd think the nostalgia would make me sad, but I'm actually very glad of the feeling.
