August Happiness Challenge -- Day 21

Today's happiness: This blog. Sometimes I'm just so grateful to have a place to express myself, and to know people out there are hearing me.

Earlier the year I sent out a valentine to Kwizgiver and Snarkypants. They came through when I had the blues and it was the sweetest, most unexpected rescue.

Today I want to shout out to BookMama and Lisa G. BookMama is in Chicago with her children, seeing Hamilton. I have been following their activities via Facebook, but I've been enjoying them so much because we got to know each other here, on Blogger.

Lisa G. gave me a heads-up at the perfect moment. She sent me a link to a credible story about the FDA extending the expiration on some Epipens ... including the one that's in my purse! That will save me a ton by allowing me to wait and order my Epipen from my insurance preferred vendor. Thank you, thank you, thank you.


Each day in August you are to post about something that makes *you* happy. Pretty simple. And, it doesn't even have to be every day if you don't want it to be. It's a great way to remind ourselves that there are positive things going on in our lives, our communities, and the world.



  1. Blogging has brought some very treasured friends into my life. I'm glad it's done that for you, too. Love hearing about the connections we make with those we'd otherwise never know.

  2. I've been reading you for years, and I'm so happy I saw that Lifehacker thing and sent it your way. I don't blog anymore, but it doesn't mean the connection isn't there. :)

  3. Aw, thanks. :) It kind of felt like you were participating via comments on my FB posts! And we had such an amazing Hamilton experience.
