Welcome to the Happy News!


Good Morning peeps!

Thank you all so much for all your kind words of encouragement yesterday. I’m still sore today and I was going to take the evening off to let myself rest but I’ve changed my mind. Monday through Friday is how it’s gonna be. That’s that!  I WILL go work out tonight even if it’s sore. No pain no gain! Moving on…


Every night before bed Mr. Primcat and I watch the 11:00 news. Well actually he watches the news and I try to tune it out.

Did ya’ll watch Cougar Town this last week. Did ya see what the news did to Bobby?

You can watch the full episode HERE.

Most of the time… I feel like Bobby when I have to watch the sadness and badness in the world.

Overwhelmed by depressing information for a full half hour. I loath the news. It’s so disheartening. Life sucks a lot of the time… I don’t need to hear a full half our of why the world sucks too! I just can’t handle it.

So here’s what I propose. There should be “Happy News” every night and every morning. A half hour of just feel good stuff so I can go to bed and wake up feeling good and content with the world.

Happy News could change the world if it was used right. Yeah yeah… we would all still know the bad stuff was happening, because it’s not like you can escape it. It’s inundated every area of our lives and shoved in our faces by the media every second of every day. But at least with something like Happy News it would give people the chance to focus on something good everyday instead of only the bad.

Who wouldn’t want that?

Until next time…

Carmen and the Primcats

I think happy News is a wonderful idea and very much needed!!!!! I always tune out or leave the room when hubby watches the news, nothing but terrible things day in and day out, and they wonder why so many of us are depressed!

Hi, Carmen
wonderful idea! Happy News! I seriously think it a station would do it for a half an hour, the ratings would go up, I think most women, feel the same as you do>>we know it is going on the bad stuff, but come on do we really need it pounded in>>not very relaxing!
Great idea>>I think you should send it in to a station!
enjoy the day

Hey Carmen - I couldn't agree with you more regarding the news. Seems DH always turns it on (whoever thought 24 hr news channels were a good idea) and I just try to tune it out. I'd rather watch a good old movie - something light-hearted or inspirational. The news is so full of bad stuff...It's not that I don't care to stay informed...I choose to try to look at the good!
It's nice to know (from your comments and those already posted) that I'm not the only one who feels this way!

Wonderful idea! I refuse to watch the news on TV or listen to the news on the radio. I want to believe that the world is a wonderful place where people are happy all the time.

Your blog is a great place for people to come for happy news. I hope you have a great weekend!

Carmen, I've been away a couple days and didn't see that you had joined a gym, so did I and have been going every morning with my best friend. It was my new years' present/commitment to myself. Good luck with that. I hope you do well. It is always good to have a goal.
