Great day!

Today went pretty darn well. My interview went well, and it's me and just one other candidate. So that's promising. It will be several weeks still, but I'm hopeful.

Also in good news, I got to work this morning and checked my phone, to find an email from our property manager. Apparently the renter likes our place so much (and it is conveniently located and tastefully appointed) that she is interested in buying it. This is excellent news. As long as the numbers pan out, that would be most helpful.

And then I got an email this afternoon from Holland America, informing me of the amount of the reimbursement they're sending for my lost glasses. My glasses should be done the end of this week or early next week. Between the Groupon, the kindness of the shop owner, and the reimbursement, they will ultimately have cost us $32. This is especially impressive, since I'm so nearsighted that my power of lenses aren't kept in-stock and have to be the superduper expensive thin ones. Last time I got just the lenses replaced, it was $180. I don't like these frames as much as my old ones, but it's still not a bad deal.

It was just one good thing after another today. A nice change of pace.


  1. Me too! The glasses and nearsighted part at least. Why does being special always cost more money instead of getting me free stuff like on TV?

  2. I'm so glad things are going better!

  3. Hooray! Hope the rest of your week is as great as yesterday.


Be nice.
