More Happiness...and Ribs!?

I had a great Tuesday.  Things at school went well; it was payday and I was paid a little extra for hours I've been putting in but hadn't been paid for doing so.  I bought tickets to Wicked in May in Durham for Buddy, myself and his two youngest daughters.  I saw it on Broadway in the summer of 2010, and it was such a great show!  Jenny and I talked about it the other night at Buddy's house, and she saw the show in Charlotte last year.  She, like myself, is a theatre geek, so it's nice to have that in common!

After school, I went to Greenville and met Buddy for dinner.  We went to Texas Roadhouse where we had an absolutely wonderful meal!  I ordered ribs off the kids' menu.  They were $7.99 with one side.  I figured it might be two ribs, but it was a huge slab!  (When they advertise "fall off the bone", they mean it!) They were so delicious! I nibbled at the ribs and had two bites of mashed potatoes.  I was careful not to eat the fat of the ribs, and other than a little more "full" than usual, I was very happy with my choices.  Buddy had steak and ribs and enjoyed his meal, too.  The service was excellent, too!!

Yesterday I posted about being incredibly happy--and I am.  My question for you is this: are YOU happy?  Really, truly happy?  This life we have is fragile--and none of us have a guarantee of how much time we have.  So if you ARE happy, that's great.  But if you could be HAPPIER, work to make that happen.  Start today--you won't regret it!  Have a wonderful Wednesday!


  1. Rhonda, I saw your post in the WU group and stopped by. I LOVE the name of your blog. And, it looks like a lot of fun. I used to be in Rockingham, NC and miss being on the east coast many days. Have a great day!

  2. Thank you, Stacy! I had originally posted in WU when I started the blog, but Teri (Therese) deleted my post because it wasn't a "writerly" blog! I don't know how much you've read, but I had gastric bypass in August and have lost 90 lbs according to MY scale; I see my dr for an official total today! Glad to have you aboard! Thanks for your support!!
