My Happy List

I have so much to be happy about and so much to be thankful for right now.  We just returned from a 4-day driving trip to Atlanta, Georgia to watch my kids' high school band and color guard compete with 32 other bands.  My daughter is part of the color guard (the girls who twirl the flags, spin rifles, and dance with other props as part of the half time show with the marching band). 

First, the four buses carrying the band and color guard made it there and back safely.  So did my husband, my son, and I in our car.  It was a 13 hour trip up and 13 hours home, and we all still love each other!

Second, not only did the team make finals, they won 7th overall!  They put on a great show!  I'm so thankful I was there to see my beautiful daughter perform in the Georgia Dome!

What else makes me happy?

The World of Coca-Cola.

The Hard Rock Cafe.


The two men in my life.

And reading.  I  read John Grisham's new novel, The Litigators, on our trip.

I've had an amazingly happy time the past few days.  I hope you have, too!  Link up with Mamarazzi and tell us all about it!

Hi,

Apologies for the off-topic comment, but I couldn't find a contact email for you.

I recently put out an ebook of my writing, called 'The New Death and others'. It's a collection of short pieces, mostly dark fantasy.

I was wondering if you'd be interested in doing a review on your blog.

If so, please email me: news@apolitical.info. Let me know what file format is easiest for you, and I'll send you a free copy.

You can download a sample from the ebook's page on Smashwords:

I'm also happy to do interviews, guest posts, or giveaways. Just let me know what you'd prefer.

Yours,
James.

Sounds like a fun trip! I wish my daughter's band marched more. I remember having so much fun on the trips we took in high school.

I'm also a fan of John Grisham's books, though I have a pile of his waiting to be read!

Have a great week!
