My contacts came in this week. I can see again!!
Vision is good!
Two things made me happy today!
First, I bought the Mythbusters 10th Anniversary box set. That alone would be awesome (Mythbusters! Yay!
Mel want big boom!), but the really awesome part is that I could just decide to do that. I got my current job in April last year, and before that I'd been unemployed for nearly four years... so every cent I had came from the Good Ethnic Boy, and while he never made me feel guilty for depending on him that way, that didn't stop me doing it to myself. I felt horrible every time I bought something, even necessary things, because it "wasn't my money"... but now I have a job, and an income, and I've paid off some debt, and when I want to buy something frivolous I can!
The second thing that made me happy today was that the car battery died. Well, no, not exactly - but the battery died, and the car wouldn't start, and my reaction was basically "Huh. That's not good. Okay... no, I didn't leave anything on, so it's not my fault, heh. Right then. I know what to do and who to call, I have all the info and the policy number and so on. I can take care of this. I'll call to let the GEB know what's happening so that he's not worried about me being late, and then get this fixed. Sweet, I even parked in the shade, bonus!" I didn't worry, I didn't panic, I just dealt
. Sure, before today I knew intellectually that I could deal with this sort of thing, but it's really empowering to prove it.
