Happy Friday!

I have a true reason to be happy! This isn’t books news, but it’s part of why I got so behind–yesterday I got the medical all clear on a serious situation that’s been going on for almost two months. It took a couple hours of testing yesterday but they finally determined I’m clear and fine. Wizard and I are both extremely grateful and happy. When we got home after finishing the tests and getting the news, Wizard opened a bottle of our “special” wine to celebrate. We never drink that wine (because it’s expensive and we’re cheap), so I knew he was relieved :-)

After a couple tough months (especially losing Bailey), August is looking up. Honestly it feels like dark clouds that have been hanging over us for a while now are breaking up. Or maybe that’s the wine talking, LOL!

So now it’s your turn. What makes you happy today or this week?

    Oh, Jen! I am doing the happy relief dance with you and Wiz! Best. News. Evah! :D :D :D :D :D

    And yeah, y’all were due some.

    I finished DOUBLE TROUBLE. For the past week I was convinced it sucked. (Hello, yes I was channeling my Inner Jen ;) ) I’d set it up to be 28K words. It ended up just over 37K. But after I finished the hard edit before sending it off to betas and my editor, I had mixed emotions. I think the story is better than I gave it credit for and I’m really hoping it holds together since I need to upload it in like a week and a half. Nothing like cutting deadlines short, right?!? :D Anyway, the story made me happy in the end. And tomorrow, Lawyer Guy and I celebrate 33 years. 8-O

    Silver, thank you! I’m so glad it’s finally over. The long day yesterday was worth it in the end.

    Yay for finishing!!! Sorry about the Inner Jen, but you pushed through and can see it’s working. Some books are just tougher than others. Great news!

    Huge congrats on you and LG’s anniversary! 33 years is pretty amazing! Hope you guys are celebrating!

    Wow Jenn! So happy to hear you’re all in the clear. You must be so relieved. Wizard is a sweetheart breaking out the special (we’re cheap too ;)). August is so going to be a great month for you!

    Have a great time this weekend – continue your birthday celebrations :).

    Happy Anniversary Silver! Thirty three years is fantastic. You also have a great time celebrating :)!

    It looks like it might cool down a bit Sat/Sun and I may get to open the windows for a couple hours. Now that makes me happy :) (the cat too). Oh he turns 3 Monday and yes, I did buy him a present. It’s just a new mouse.

    Have a great weekend :)!

    YAY Jenn!! :hugs: I’m so glad that whatever it was turned out to be okay. The waiting for tests part is the hardest. Here’s to a much better August!

    I’m happy because I went fishing this morning and with the two I caught today, we finally have enough fish now for a meal. (Panfish fillets are kinda dinky.) Fresh fish – it’s what’s for dinner tonight. I’m also happy because I’m over halfway done with this part of the edits. This weekend, I’ll push hard and get this part done, then move onto the deeper stuff she suggested. AND I’m still rolling out new words on Early Grave. It’s all good, baby. =o)

    Viki, Happy Birthday to your kitty! I can’t believe he’s 3 already. A mouse is an awesome present, and he’ll love it. I’m still amazed he’s 3!

    I hope you get cooler weather and can open the windows. I miss that so much too. We haven’t been able to open ours even at night and miss the fresh air.

    Tomorrow will be fun. Then we’ll take a break from entertaining, LOL!

    Have a great weekend!

    B.E., With all the time you’re putting in on both editing and writing new words, you deserved a morning out fishing. And now you have fresh fish for dinner.

    You have a lot of reasons to be happy! August is going to be a good month for all of us :-)

    Have a great weekend!
