Wow, where do i start? Maybe with the very small, singular event that got this huge, happy snowball rolling down hill. Yep, great place to start!!

Friday:
--I received a phone call from a person I was friends with about 22 years ago. She is in town for the day and would love to pay me back the $1500.00 she has owed me all this time. I loaned it to her so she had a deposit, first and last month's rent when she moved from her soon t be ex's home.
--My gas gauge was below empty , but I made it to the gas station.
--My 9 week old puppy has not had an accident in the house or in my business for 4 days!! She comes running when I call and she knows that 'no' means "NO-stop now!!"

Saturday:
--My husband wants to remarry me this summer. We will renew our vows and again, it will just be the two of us at our wedding. No family or friends. Just us, the pastor and 2 unknown witnesses. Then---Barbeque and bonfire time!! We will have another huge barbeque for all our friends and family, they will not know the occasion until after they arrive. We do not want the presents, hassle or obligation of telling each person separately.

Today:
My husband and I just got back from going to a few yard sales. I spent $31.00 on purchases that will sell for around $940.00!!!! My husband spent $50.00 on purchases and his antique and vintage tool collection has grown by 5 normally very expensive power tools with their original boxes. OH--we also purchased another Indian Mini Dirt Bike, an 80cc. For $125.00--resale would be around $1900-2500--but we are keeping it to go with our other two.

AND--When I read the forums yesterday, I was the first avatar that showed up on the voting for the COTM (Contributor of the Month)!!!! What an exciting and motivating honor!! I am beside myself for just being nomm'ed--I can't even imagine being voted in as such!! The other nominations are all such amazing and wonderful people--it just makes it such a larger honor to be included with them for this title.

SO--Let's celebrate, and while we are at it--SHARE YOUR OWN GOOD NEWS & HAPPENINGS THIS WEEKEND!!!

Awww I am so happy for you JS250! Sounds like you are having one of those weekends that makes the bad stuff that might happen seem bearable. My weekend isn't going as stellar-ly as yours but I have a lot of little things to be thankful for!
I started my period and noticed that I felt like I was going to explode out of my skin....incipient panic attack. I had backed down off my medication and in a moment of panic I took a pill. The feelings abated and I didn't end up spending the day screaming at my kids and poor husband. (Don't normally scream at Arch when he's not here in person but I've snarled at him a few times) Why is this a good thing? It is a good thing because it was so rampant, these explosive energy episodes, that it was threatening to wreck my marriage, relationship with my kids and my partnership. I was out of control and NOTHING makes me meaner or more angry than feeling like I can't control my feelings.
I was skeptical when I had an allergic reaction to the drug I'm taking for the attacks but it seems that when I need it the drug is a lifesaver. Thanks Doc!
So yes, I got several reviews written this weekend, had some GREAT talks, verbal and physical cuddling, virtual and real live sex, and connected with several friends. It has been a great weekend and I am happy I can celebrate it with you Js250!
Laissez les bon temps roulet!

Happy vow renewal! I'm so glad things have gotten better for the both of you! (And that's the best news yet about the puppy. )

As for my own news, my very generous friends are putting me up at a fan convention for a long weekend in July so we could all be together again.

Excellent news all around. That's awesome a long lost friend is going to repay you. Wonderful finds at the yard sales, congrats on getting remarried, and congrats on contributor of the month.

My excellent news is my husband has passed his Microsoft certification exam on Friday and lacks just the exit project to graduate with his Bachelors degree. He has until the end of August to complete the exit project, but I figure we will have it done within the next month.

And I am also nominated for contributor of the month, and feel honored to be with all you wonderful ladies.

I am so glad that the meds work when you need them to!! I know what you mean--I sometimes find myself being a royal b@#ch for no reason and cannot stop acting like that. And I haven't had a period in over 20 years,lol!! It is from the brain damage and is getting slowly worked through--I just need patience!!

Continue having a good weekend!!

I spent the weekend with my amazing family as a late father's day celebration at my cottage and can't remember the last time I had such a great time. Plus I had not seen my niece and nephew in about 2 months which made it extra special.

I really love great news! I am very happy for you. What a nice surprise for your friend to be visiting and paying you back but, an even bigger congrats on your wedding renewal! We've been married 15 1/2 years and I thought about it. At one time, I wanted to do it on our 15th but, that didn't work out. I'm thinking maybe our 25th.

Way to go on the great deals!! I love rummage sales. Too bad they don't have many here.
