Tentative Squee? Maybe?

  • My church friends thought I handled D and his meanness very well. They also very kindly did not mention my crying fit from later.

  • My great-aunt has a better prognosis than was earlier thought. She is still unconscious, and the doctors say she has Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome, but the oxygen deprivation was not nearly so bad as thought and any brain damage would be extremely minimal. My uncle will be coming back home tomorrow. (Hopefully!)

  • I've been approved for a loan to refinance my car, which was the expense that was truly killing me. Not only that, but the loan was in my stepdad's name (both our names are on the title) so these painful payments were building his credit, not mine. So this will bring my monthly payment down from close to $400 a month to just under $150 a month. And with THAT, the job search suddenly becomes unnecessary!

I can't say "Squee" cuz I know Squee as a comic book character from Johnny the Homicidal Maniac; and it's a Snopes thang; but I can say a hopeful "WOO HOO!"

You can say squee. Anyone can say squee! It's a modern translation of "Hallelujah" or "Hosanna." It's a joyful noise! See, look:

And then the priestess did speak unto the people and say, "Maketh a joyful noise unto God!" And the people did respond with a most resounding, "Squeeeee!" (Exclamations 4:9)
