Things happen in threes, right?? Well, I'm sosososo glad to report three good things. Or..maybe two good things and one sort-of-we'll-see-what-happens thing.
1. After pestering my boss for three-plus weeks about reducing my amount of hours, the ultimatum I gave her this morning finally worked. Next week, I've only been scheduled for 28 hours. I actually have a WHOLE DAY off. My head is spinning. This is fabulous news.
2. My oldest son turned 16 about two weeks ago, and just yesterday, got his driver's license. Then, I bought my dad's 1998 Dodge Dakota pickup/rustbucket from him and bequeathed it to my son...with explicit instructions that he doesn't kill anybody or himself. My life as a taxi is about to get easier.
3. Our Amazon Echo came in the mail today...after like four months of anticipation and a special invitation from Amazon to be able to buy it. We're not usually Keep Up With The Joneses-type people...but well, there's always an exception.
