My, yesterday was full of agita
. So here are some good things.
* All in all, if my debit card number was going to be stolen, that was not the worst time. It occurred when we had the least money in the account, so the thief didn't steal as much as they otherwise could have. Had the theft happened this upcoming Friday, it would have been so much worse - that's when Adam's paycheck hits, and that's the check we pay all our bills from. This situation would have reduced me to tears if I then had to call all of our utility and credit card companies begging them to reverse late-payment and bounced-payment fees. Only one payment was screwed up by this, and Judah was able to loan us the money for it.
* I went glasses shopping with Judah last week, and I found three pairs of frames I actually really like at SEE! It will be a wonderful change to be wearing glasses I like instead of just glasses I can tolerate. I can only afford one pair and I'd like two, but I can always go back if I have a small windfall. Or maybe I can convince my parents that I need a spare pair when they visit for Elayna's birthday.
* My Lunesta prescription has been filled without argument. This is not always the case! So one of my occasionally monthly stressbombs has been defused. And I have enough meds to last til Adam's paycheck.
* Valentine's Day is coming up! Fortunately, neither of the guys are attached to doing a solo romantic date on Valentine's Day itself. At least in part because the restaurants are really crowded. Adam has a few days off next week, so we'll have a daytime museum date - probably the ICA
or the Gardner
. Judah and I have yet to decide.
* Thank you guys for all of the great retirement fund advice yesterday! This is part of what I love about LJ - it is an enormous and wildly varied brain trust! I will not cash out; I will be patient.
* The awesome story cucumberseed
read at our joint Arisia reading is up at Strange Horizons
This is the first time since mid-Wednesday that I've actually been alone in the house. I've been tidying up, and I may actually get some writing time today after all.
Oh, and more good news: I bought our tickets for Lunar Labyrinth way
before the debit card got stolen. So all four of us, plus lbitw
, are going to have a magical damn time tomorrow night.
(None of the info re: Lunar Labyrinth mentioned age limits; I e-mailed them to ask if it was 21+ or 18+, noting that I had a 17-year-old Gaiman fan who wished to attend. They said she was welcome if accompanied by someone over 18, but "it's more Sandman
Gaiman than The Graveyard Book
Gaiman." Aw, it's cute that you think 17-year-olds are more into The Graveyard Book
. I reassured her that Sandman
was Elayna's favorite.)
