Today I am happy to have been doing my exercising indoors on my Gazelle Glider exercise machine for the past few days. It was simply to cold out to do my regular exercise walking.

Happy that some cousins of mine had healthy twin boys born this morning. Both boys are long in length so I am thinking that they will take after their uncles and some cousins because neither their dad or grandpa are tall. Hilarious!

They live in Texas so it will be a few months before we can pay a visit. We were thinking March but other members of family claimed it today so we may have to change plans. Rolling my eyes.

With apologies to my many Texas friends here...

Sure never thought they would get this far, with the way they played earlier in the season...

Thanks, Jacquie. We are fine. So far as I know, the deaths and damage was in south central Mississippi. I am in the northeast. We got several thunderstorms in the wee hours of the night. The thunder was so strong that it shook the house and rattled the windows. I don't know of any damages up here unless the lightening hit a home.

We are awaiting some kind of storm tonight or tomorrow. Who knows, this weather is crazy.

I am just happy there has been very little snow.

So happy that this over 24 hours of steady rain (with much of the time strong rain) is just rain. That it was not cold enough to be snow.

We would have had at least 30 inches of snow because of all the rain. SO VERY HAPPY that it was rain and not snow.

I can finally say I'm happy today after finally getting an appointment for my yearly mammogram. Long story -- person set me up for screening rather than diagnostic. I didn't find out it was the wrong thing until I showed up on the 13th and had to start the process all over. Finally, the doctor's office put in the right order and I was able to make my appointment for April, which is when we return to AR. Thumbs up
