Oh So Happy

I'm alive and well, having a fabulous time with my many visiting family members.
This is what my holidays are about, and it's difficult for me to express just how happy it makes me feel, without become extremely teary eyed. Mystifying how that happens even when there's no onions being sliced...
We've been playing video games, board games, card games, dice games...eating, watching movies, and just enjoying each others company in general.
As far as I know this hasn't happened since I left for Ohio two years ago.
My MIL bought me an updated version of then Encyclopedia of Body Building by Arnold Schwarzenegger (drooling over all the info in it, and pics), and my aunt got me an External Hard drive. I can't express just how excited I am over both of these gifts. Amazing, really. I also got some great leg warmers, movie passes, scratch & wins, smut magazines (you know, US & People), and a mini bottle of rum I fully intend to carry in my new purse, just in case. I also got some wonderful jewelry from my boys.
I've been cooking, baking, and cleaning like the dickens...but I'm thoroughly enjoying it. I mean actually smiling to myself when I do it, because it means I'm surrounded by the ones I love. The ones that are fully supporting me and my poor ass, moping, non-working ways.
I love my family, and I finally feel like things are just as they should be.
Our washing machine broke down the other day as I went to toss in some soiled blankets. Shit. Mr, being the amazing mechanical genius he is, fixed it tonight by replacing a belt for only $25. Seriously, he wonders why we keep asking him to fix things. I told him tonight it was because he has the ability to look up the directions and comprehend them to fix whatever needs fixing. He's so great that way.
I seriously could not be any happier, and these past few days will definitely stick out in my memory for a long time.

Whoo Hoo! I am SO happy that you are happy - especially after being sick, the whole job thing and personal trial and tribulations.
Hang on to this feeling as long as you can.
