In an effort to combat some annoying, frustrating, negative crap that’s happened today; I present a list of things that make me smile.
*My car insurance was renewed and it actually got LOWER. I’ll be able to have the 6 month premium paid off in about 2 months.
*I’m getting a 5 day staycation wherein I get to see Silas Weir Mitchell (of Grimm & Burn Notice fame) and George Takei (hopefully).
*The perfume I’m wearing smells like Hawaii. I can pretend I’m there.
*My new skirt arrived and I intend on wearing it Tuesday after the Con is over.
*I’m averaging walking between 3 and 4 miles a day. That’s more than I thought I did on an average day.
*ZooBorns and baby pygmy goats, snow leopards, and tigers. It’s difficult to be pissed when you have a cute fuzzy face looking at you.
*My boss threatened to drunk text me during the Con this weekend. And the fact I have that kind of relationship with my boss. I kind of can’t wait to see what he comes up with. (yes, it’s still funny)
*The harmonic convergence of DragonCon, black gay pride, & the Chick Fil A college football kickoff game in town this weekend. Bring on the nerds, queens, and rednecks. Part of me wants to camp out on a corner outside one of the hotels and literally watch the world go by.
*Sitting out in the sun sipping my latte to start my day. It’s a very pleasant way to get things rolling.
*I slept really, really well last night.
*Cherry print pants and suede ballet flats.
*Rewatching the original Buffy the Vampire Slayer movie last night. I’d forgotten how funny it was.
*The hospital letting me pay my bill in installments. I’ll have all that paid off by the end of the year without stressing too much over it.
*Refusing to compromise my self care in the name of being practical by someone else’s standards. Taking care of myself is being practical.
*Knowing that I’m more than capable of handling new situations, people, & tasks. I’ve totally got this.
P.S. If you’re friends with me on FB, I’ll try to post pictures throughout the weekend.
