I just have to comment on that whole garage door debacle. I mean - I've been off for 10 days, and could have arranged for repairs during the break if only it had happened just 5 days earlier. Timing!
My word is beam, as in the expression on your face when something outrageously good happens. It just seems that you reap what you sow, and when you have a positive outlook, good things will come your way. I hope this works for you in 2013. I will try to keep a smile on my face as I deal with the garage door. :)
