I woke up this morning before my alarm clock, feeling rested and ready to take on the day. Sleeping next to me was a man I love, curled up against me under the blanket. In a nearby room, an adorable dog started thumping his tail excitedly when I approached. We stepped outside for his morning routine, and found snow on the ground.
It’s a good morning.
All things considered, February is shaping up pretty nicely. Both my federal and state tax refunds have been deposits. I still have a job, with a boss that I admire and respect, which is unfortunately more than a lot of my friends and colleagues can say. I confirmed that I AM getting an annual bonus — nowhere near my “target” but still more than I was skeptically expecting.
Sure, there are things I could complain about — I’m still wondering when I’m going to get rent in New Mexico, I still don’t know what my new job (same boss) will be once the merger dust has settled, blah blah blah… But right here, right now, I don’t care.
My day has started off beautifully, and I’m going to fight to keep it that way.
