Life Is Good!

Good things are happening! The first is I survived another round in the Torture Chamber and lived to blog about it! Oh, I’m aching some, but not to the extent I was last week. I was able to get out of bed this morning without moaning and groaning; that’s progress of a sort.

The second good thing: I received an award! The Half-Assed Housewife--and I say that only with the greatest affection—has chosen me to receive the NEW FAVORITE AWARD. Apparently her criteria for this award were that the blog had to be new within the last 6 months and had to make her laugh out loud. To me that’s awesome. I do believe laughter is the best medicine, so if I’m doling out a dose here and there, I’m thrilled. A sense of humor has been the key to survival on many occasions in my life when I have endured some trying setbacks.

The third good thing: I have had so many wonderful, appreciative and supportive comments on my blog. It’s gratifying to know that my ramblings aren’t floating around in the blogosphere unnoticed. If you have been reading my blog and haven’t commented, I hope you will. Also, clicking on the word "comments" enables you to read what others have said, and sometimes the comments make ME laugh out loud!

The fourth good thing: We’re supposed to have beautiful weather this weekend, and I have the weekend off. Whoops! I’m retired—I have every weekend off, and the weeks, too! Lucky me! Is it five o’clock yet? I think I’ll have a drink!

The weather in Central Ohio has been incredible this year. Not too hot or too humid, for the most part -- we recently had a hot, sticky day or two, but compared to some other summers it's nothing to complain about. And I'd swear there are fewer mosquitoes about.

Congrats on the award. And surviving the torture chamber. :)

Congrats on the award. I think a life without humor is no life at all.

Hi there thanks for the drive-by, just returning the compliment. I am sure I have seen you sneakily adding comments to FU penguin. Now there is a life time grounding right there, if your parents ever found out :) Enjoy that drink.

'The Torture Chamber'...I've just been reading down through your blog and now I know what you mean. :) Yes, pretty much how I feel about these places - a bit of a necessary evil if you ask me!
