Is it springtime yet?

Welllll, I'm having a crappy month, LOL. The class I was going to teach this semester was cancelled due to low enrollment. My daughter had to have last-minute surgery last week, and we were in the hospital for 5 days (she's recuping very well, thankfully). Also, some other writing-related stuff has not gone well.

Needless to say, I've been struggling with what to write on here that would sound even halfway positive. LOL.

And to top it off, the weather is wretched in northeast Ohio--we're getting dumped with a bootyload of snow. I got my car stuck in the driveway this morning and had to shovel myself out...only to spend 1 1/2 hours on the highway trying to get to work, in drenched jeans and with sopping-wet hair.

Calgon, take me away! LOL

So, since I desperately need cheering up, PLEASE post on here and tell me something good that has happened to you recently (or if more than one good thing happened, share share share it all!). I need a little early springtime, and your positive comments will help pull me out of my funk.

Thanks so much, guys!! I'm going to make a good cup of tea...surely that'll help, right? :D

And to start things off, I'll even post something that's a positive--I'm 73% done writing my third novel in the CUPID trilogy. YAY for progress!

    Something good...hmmm...

    Jennifer Haymore needed a beta reader for the second book in her Regency series, so I volunteered, and in return, she's going to give me some feedback on my wip, which is a YA Regency. (My first attempt at an actual historical.)

  2. I think that's a good thing, for sure! YAY!

  3. Something good? I have a ridiculously fluffy black and white cat hanging out on my desk. It's hard to be in a bad mood with that much goofiness staring back at me.

  4. My something good is not having to weather the ice storm, so I get to stay indoors and write, drink hot chai, and sing offkey to myself all day...does that count?

  5. I got on the elliptical today. won an auction yesterday.

  6. I hit a 40 scratch ticket while sitting on the toilet.
