Awesome Nirvana! When my kids were younger Value World (Purple Heart) was the only place to shop because they were guaranteed to have pants to fit all three of them. Especially supe-skinny Hector. I just used to measure the length and waist with a pre-prepared piece of string and buy every pair that fit. and the handbag -cool find. I feel like that about hockey gear and figure skates.

OK, I'm happy because Hebe's High School Swim team just won their first meet by two points, and Hebe placed and scored in one of her individuals, even though she's a freshman.


I got word that our pool is fixed and may be open by tomorrow evening.


and I have paid work.

Where you headed?

Saying goodbye to your holiday home?

If you're ever visiting rellies-in-law in High Wycombe do let me know.
I'd be happy to hop on a bus just to shake hands and have a photo op, even if you're too pushed for time for anything else.

I was able to eat applesauce today for the first time in 15 years.

It was tasty.

Hooray applesauce!

I am happy because in the face of pending evacuation orders, our doctor's NY office staff worked like lightning to send out our prescription orders (and presumably everyone else's) before running out the door.

I swimmed! In my pool! Well kinda mine. :D And I'm still pumped about Hebe's swim team experience and the whole high school thing seems to be coming together. We bought the homecoming dance ticket and class shirt and she's also decided to go the the homecoming dance of the school she is zoned for with her off-season swim team buddies, and she might even go to the homecoming game. She told me not to bother to buy her a pass for the home games/meets because she wouldn't go to enough, but I forced her and 24 hours later she's happy I did :D

I love this thread! Just reading why other people are happy makes me happy! :)

Phyllis and the Magic Community Minibus turned up unexpectedly to take us to a party 20 miles away so I didn't have to drive and could have a wee drinkie! Mahvellous!

monster 08-26-2011 06:38 PM

The Magic Community Minibus? Were roundabouts involved? Dougal? Brian?

It was a bit like that - there were the Gay Gordons, the Dashing White Sargeant, a couple of lovely songs sung by Mairi McInnes, fab food, and all around the bloomin' Heather (she was retiring). The bus is yellow and pumpkin like.

Having a hurricane cleaning party with offspring. Getting rid of a bunch of crap that was just taking up much needed space. Basement looks better than it has in years.
