What Made You Happy today?

Recommended Posts

Sitting here waiting for Mrs. Walter to begin her final "bad" chemo treatment. She will still receive experimental doses until February of next year (and 30 radiation treatments this summer), but those side effects are nothing compared to what this chemo poses. She is A CHAMP! :yesnod:

I was wondering how she was coping, so glad to hear she got through this part so well :)

My daughter has accepted a job offer from Disneyworld, Orlando, Florida, USA.

She is doing a degree in Events Management and the position doubles as part of her course criteria, where she has to work in the entertainment industry. Win/win!

She flies out in early August.

Early last evening my daughter's 8U softball team lost a close game 10~8 . It was game 2 of a 3 game championship tournament. Now typically you would think this qualifies for the un happy thread. But I was so impressed with how far her team had come this season. Every game they got better and better. Yesterday they left it all out on the field ....they even turned 2 double plays, but their best wasn't enough, and we came up short......they all handled the loss well, and lined up for the hand shakes without tears.

Great group of kids who had a lot of fun and learned a great deal about gelling as a team.

Here is a pic of Paige's last at bat of the season.

Lovely pics! I was kinda hoping for one of the car, too... :)

LOL. .....the lack of oxygen at 9500 feet makes for some goofy pics, and tired hiking.

Very nice! I just bought a 2012 (12,000 mi.) black convertible SS Camaro - fucking love it! It's stick, so Mrs. Walter is having to learn to drive it. What an awesome car! Glad you're having a good trip!

:peace:

Its buttercream frosting and the roses are made of ready to roll icing. It's my first attempt at it as I am no cook! But I'm really pleased with the result.

Dinner and good conversation with my parents and my family last evening. Feeling lucky to have had parents like mine.

Oh, and my 71 yr old father bought himself a new Harley.

Happy. :-)

Spent most of the weekend at the local record fair, bought lots of LZ stuff, nearly broke the bank but worth it! Next time I'll have to go with no more than 5 euros in my pocket!

not actually today, but over the last few months .....

first my elder son got his dream job - as an animator. great conditions and pay, too. He just moved out of home with two other guys at the same job, so another plus!

Eldest child, daughter, also scored her dream job this week. She will be working with families that are experiencing difficulties with kids - could be post-natal depression, autistic kids ..... great pay and easy to get to ( by ferry, should be a nice commute each day ).

She had already left home about 5 years ago, so now it's just hubby, myself and 13 yo son ....

:hurrah:

Wonderful news slave! :)

I'm happy about so much I don't know where to start! My Ancestry DNA kit and the remasters arrived! :D My bathroom will be ready for the gorgeous new tiles we picked out hopefully by the end of today and then we can put in the new vanities, toilet, light fixtures, etc. Then it's on to the new floors throughout the house. The bamboo flooring should be delivered today. :hurrah: My house will be a wreck for a little while but it will be worth it once everything is done. We're very excited, it's going to look so good. I'll be sure to post some pictures! :thumbsup: After a few months of searching, we may have finally found the perfect boat to buy and vacation in Rhode Island is now only days away!! :yay: :yay: :yay:
