Yep yep yep.

I'm hella happy. Tired but happy.

My family is healthy, I have accomplished everything I could at work, finally decided on an air gun and looking forward to (hopefully) finding it, my best friends are doing well, planning on the strategies for my next fund raiser and I'm getting ready to start cooking.

I'm very thankful for the gift of life and living.

Are you happy too? I hope so, because everyone deserves to be happy.

Howabout pleased? I would be happy, except I need to repack my hubs and I don't have the tools to do so, so I'm going to have to take my wheels into the LBS and have them do it. Other than that, though, Life is great.

My back doesn't hurt nearly as much anymore. I've been losing weight. School has been stressful, but fun. I'm working on a new "look," which I'm diggin' so far. I'm starting to feel more and more like my old self.

PPS why are you getting an airgun? That sounds like a toy I need!!!!

I used to have a Glock and a Sig Sauer and a bunch of rifles but I sold them because
I decided I didn't want the liability of having lotsa guns around--even though I am very safe.

I am happy! I don't have a crappy job to go to every day and wreck my fun, my cycling skills are improving, I took some great photos this weekend, it rained this morning but the afternoon was sunny, I had ice cream (roasted marshmallow and mocha) after my ride today, I backed up my harddrive, I saw a cat, I saw several doggies, my husband is wonderful (and he brought me Lindt chocolates because I'm adorable), we're having a South West casserole with enough leftovers for dinner tomorrow, everyone in my family is healthy, and I have plans this week to meet up with a friend I haven't spoken to in nearly a year.

Life is great!!

Ooooooooooh It's so good to see everyone is doing well!!

UA, I know you are happy because you are in a better place today than a month ago.

Hickey, It's great that you have an LBS to go to rather than being stuck without one.

Wernmax, isn't it nice to feel at ease?

KV, I know you just made a new friend so I have a feeling you are happy about that even though you are sick.

Cyclokitty, of course you are adorable, that is why he married you!

Artifice, you are one bright, energetic and athletic gal. Who couldn't be happy for having all of that?

Oh and KV.......I want an airgun because I want to hone my skills in targeting in my own back yard. I have powder guns but here in Cali the laws are so strict. There are hardly any gun shops in my area let alone ranges that will operate during the times I am off due to their limited scheduling.

Yeah I suppose all is well in the world right now. Could use a little less debt, but then we'd be living under a bridge.

The kids are learning how to ride without training wheels, the wife has 13 months left to complete her degree. And I have my jeep....Really what more could I ask for?

Good for you on the airgun! I love shooting. I also teach for one of the games and a couple of world champions are among my students.

And yup, I'm happy. The family is all healthy, the kids are playing nicely, potty training for my daughter has finally started progressing, I've lost 33 pounds now, and I had a great ride today with wonderful friends. Oh, I love my job too (stay-at-home dad).

you really get to appreciate the peaceful moments in life when it doesn't happen often.

I saw the thread title and thought of the baby elephant in "Tarzan". Perhaps you remember - "Is this water sanitary? It looks questionable to me."
