So yesterday I made this posting. A little plea to God to maybe ease up a bit because I was near a breaking point. I have never been a super religious person, but I know sometimes there is a feeling of peace you can get from just releasing your worries and concerns and thoughts and fears into the universe. Just letting them go and hoping the act of doing so may bring some positive things back around into your life.
So today I get a call from one of my bosses. It's bonus time. And she goes through the schpeal of how they are pleased with my work and know that I am up against some tough situations, yada, yada, yada. Then she drops a number on me that is mucho higher than I was prepared for. I mean, not retiring to the Bahamas-high. Not paying off my student loans-high. But a nice bit more than I was even hoping for in a "best case scenario" way.
So thank you, God. Thank you for this generous surprise when I was least expecting it. This was not what I had in mind when I waived my white flag yesterday, but I will sure as heck take it!
Suggestions welcome on what I should treat myself to (even though I hear the responsible Deviled Megs loud and clear telling me what I should do with my little windfall)
BUT WAIT! There's more...There are exactly TWO ways this day could get even better.
One -- I noticed today I am just one person shy of 100 followers. Who wants to be my milestone by clicking follow and making me feel 3-digit legit?
Two -- deviled Megs has a Facebook page. Maybe that's creepy...but I like it. And you should too!
A possible third way this day could get better is if McDonald's now has Shamrock Shakes available...but I think I have to wait until at least after Valentine's day for that one. Hey, you can't have everything you wish for, right? ;)
