Happy Hour Friday


I am so happy it's (almost) Friday! Unfortunately things are not perfect in my household tonight, but I need to focus on some happy stuff so doing my post tonight is a definite bonus. Here is some stuff I'm feeling happy about:

  • I've decided to chuck caution to the wind and bring back a pharmacy post. I'm not sure of the name yet, and it won't be Pharmacy Friday (cuz, duh, I have Happy Hour Friday!). I also don't want it on Wednesday because I really enjoy Rant and Rave a la Little Ms Blogger. If you have suggestions for a name, a day, or a question be sure to let me know. Here's a disclaimer tho, I won't be answering any "personal" questions. They need to be general knowledge type stuff. You know like these:
    • How does the little pill know where it hurts?
    • What color handbag goes best with Adderall?
    • Which shoes do you recommend for chasing around a toddler with ADHD?

  • I'm so glad Autumn is on the horizon. I love the lazy days of Summer and hanging out by the pool and with the kids, but there is something about Autumn that brings new life into my soul. In fact, every time I've ever "fallen in love" it's been in the Fall. Except for with my husband. Ironic, huh?
  • One thing about the coming of Autumn? Football. This year will be especially fun because I'm in a Fantasy Football league with Fidgeting Gidget. Very fun times, and have met other bloggers and Tweeters thru it.
  • My mini Moo cards came while I was at Blog Camp. I wish they had come sooner so that I could have passed them out, but they are here now and that makes me happy. Want some? Give me your address and I'll send you some.
  • I'm glad it's just about time to have a glass of wine. Seriously. I have been cranky and not even sure why. I think a cool crisp chardonnay will hit the spot. Especially since it's Happy Hour you know.
  • I'm so happy hubby has been so generous with his Canon (no, I'm not even going into the whole Nikon / Canon thing, I have a Canon and that's how it'll stay. For a while anyway). Anyway, he has been generous and I got to take it on my last 2 vacays. Now I have wonderful photos to put on Flickr and to scrapbook - if I ever had time, but that's another post!
  • I'm extremely happy and thankful that my Mom - you know, the Outrageous Older Woman - is slowly but surely recovering and was in pretty good spirits when I visited her last week.
  • I'm happy that I have great kids that can love me even tho I can be rather... well... not so nice sometimes. Ditto for the hubs.
  • I'm happy that my dogs love me and only want love and affection. And treats.
  • I'm happy Barb hung out with me yesterday and then came over for lunch today. I'm happy we had Black Bean Quesadillas (it's not in my spell check, sorry if I got it wrong) so we can serenade our husbands tonight. Not that I'd do that.

I had trouble with a happy list tonight too! I tried to keep away from making a cranky list!! My cats keep us entertained like your doggie. Pets are wonderful.

Fidgeting Gidget said...

YAY FOOTBALL!! And I'm going to be a Canon bandwagon jumper and say YAY CANON, because I have one! Happy Friday!

It's nice that family makes you happy.

Many happy things are coming my way...I feel it, the same way I feel fall is in the air.

Little Ms Blogger said...

Right now, diet cola makes me happy because I need caffeine this morning.

I'm happy to hear "Pharmacy ???" is coming back. Maybe it can be Pick the Brain of a Pill Dispenser Thursday....

I have a post in my head for today, but I think I'll join in next week for Happy Hour Friday.

It's Happy Hour Friday? And I have to write a list of my Happiness for Friday? Maybe the minute the 'hour' I remain happy I'll do just that...for now it's 'rainy, ocld and annoying as all hell million hour Friday'...but it's Friday so I'll try and include that in my list ;-)

Damn...now I want a quesadilla. I was going to have a salad, but i fear i'm going to cave and go get one for lunch.

I'm going to do the happy hour thing for two reasons, firstly the wine, and secondly the wine!

maybe next week...i feel like crapola today and can't think any happy thoughts! I'd really like to give it a try though.

I am not as excited about fall as a lot of people seem to be. I'm not excited for the coming cold at all and fall is the start of that...in fact, I want to move to where it's warm all the time.

Your happy list made me happy. :)

So, I'm a newbie to your blog and have to ask: Why Bambi? Is there a post I should read?

Happiness is chocolate, wine, my cats, clay, whine (get it off my chest), I have no idea what a Mr. Linkey is, but I filled it out so I can learn, cause learning makes me happy too. Thanks.
