I see this as success! Yay ME!
Yes, yay you. This is not easy to do.

That is fantastic! I bet you feel as good as I did getting rid of one of my lipid-lowering meds...

I'm really happy for you!

Get to leave for vacation today!

OK, now that y'all know, don't come burgle my house, but if you do, leave some treats on the coffee table for the kitty, that'll keep him quiet!
