I can't believe I'm watching this

I stumbled onto a Saved by the Bell marathon on cable and, God help me, I'm watching it. I have no idea why I'm transfixed. Maybe it's the bright 80s clothes and colors. Maybe I need mindless background noise. Maybe it's the sound of the jangling alarm clock in the opening credits. 

I love cable. I know everyone else is cutting the cord and streaming, but I'll hang on as long as I can. There's something just so deliciously random about flipping through thousands of channels and landing on a Saved by the Bell marathon.

I'm such a simple Gal.

August Happiness Challenge -- Day 15

Today's happiness -- Reconciliation. On balance, today wasn't a good day. Computer trouble all around (I can't successfully download virus protection on my Mac, my bank's website is all hinky and my credit card was rejected). I didn't accomplish anywhere near what I'd planned. And yet, right now, I'm happy.
Mindy and I made up! I don't want to reiterate what went down to bring us to this place because I'm trying to be positive. And the important thing is that we reconnected. Also, I made myself vulnerable, and my candor paid off. (<<<Life lesson.)

We've been friends for more than 40 years. I honor our history. I am happy we're right again.

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.
