Yeah. I think everything's ok in the short term, but I have to find a new bank very soon. Actually, control of my old bank was given to another bank that didn't fail, so it's possible they'll continue running the bank branches around here under the new bank's name, in which case I might not have to switch. But I probably will, anyway.

1) The sore throat I woke up with got better, not worse

2) I enjoyed some tasty homemade lentil soup for dinner

3) I went to 2 yoga classes after work

4) We finally turned the heat on in my apartment so I don't see my breath in the bathroom anymore

5) I have a job interview on Friday afternoon for a Massage Therapist position at a local chiropractic office, conveniently right near my yoga studio. *hopes they can offer her what she is looking for*

1) The sidewalks were [mostly] cleared of snow and ice for my trek into work this morning

2) My coworker gave me an old copy of her Vegetarian Times magazine to enjoy

3) I got an email coupon today for a free ice cream, because my birthday is next week. I plan to use it today.

4) I am taking tomorrow off to use up my last vacation day. So, for the first time since I started my second job in October, I will have a proper two-day weekend

5) Two words: Baked Goods

Going to the beach and swimming in a crystal clear sea that is a glorious, deep ultramarine blue shaded with jade greens.

Eating fresh mangoes in season

Looking up at the sky and thinking that, for me, "sky blue" is a deep, rich, vibrant cobalt blue, not some pale, insipid colour.

Catching the local bus to the shops and seeing that very sight, people in paragliders flying through an impossibly blue sky.

Going to the local beach at daybreak and seeing that the sand is so smooth and white it reflects the dawn colours like a mirror.

Love the post? Why not buy the T-shirt!

1. My cats are both in kitten-mode today. It's so cute when adult cats do all those little things kittens do.

2. The plants Mom gave me to "rescue" are no longer drooping and brown. They actually look healthy again!

3. I get to get fresh new contacts today. I always love the crispness of my sight the day I first get new contacts.

4. I finished knitting yet another Yule gift. Only three more pairs of socks and a scarf to go. Eeep. Time is running so short!

5. Hubby agreed to eating veggie meals... just during the week when I do all the cooking... but it's a move in the right direction for a guy who has a family that has pretty much said or done everything in the "stupid omnivores" thread.

1) My apartment wasn't freezing when I woke up

2) My sore throat is improving and my voice is gradually returning

3) I went to cash my birthday check from my father and happened to mention to the teller that the money would probably be going toward buying Christmas gifts for others. She found that unfair and agreed I need a better birthday. Before I left she asked a coworker for a rubber band and presented me with a mini 'bouquet' of lollipops. I smiled

4) I got the cutest voice mail from the owner of the Indian restaurant where I am having my dinner party this week, inviting me and my brother to come in for free chai. The only downside is I work until 9 and my brother has martial arts until 9:30.

5) My VB Secret Santa gift is en route to its recipient and I got word that mine is en route to me *bounces with anticipation*

1. Today was my last day of classes before winter break. And my last day of classes period, as next semester I'll be in a full-time internship.

2. I got paid today.

3. Charlie Brown Christmas is on tv right now, and is one of the things I look forward to most this time of year.

4. My roommate has gone home for break, and even though she's wonderful to live with, it's nice having the place to myself.

5. I feel fabulous after suffering some sort of stomach bug the past couple days.

2. I got some correspondence done

3. I got my laundry done

4. I get to make the salad, and probably the appetizers for when my sister and her family are here on Friday (YAY)!!!!

5. I got the garbage and yard waste out to the street before my mom came home.

Anytime I think I'm perfect, I remember that my cousin lives on an island, and I've never walked over to visit her.

1) I got a wonderfully amusing talking birthday card from my coworkers today

2) The confirmed estimate for tomorrow's belated birthday gathering is at least 18, which is more than I expected

3) I don't even know what it is yet but I am excited by the anticipation of the birthday gift my brother told me he has waiting for me when I get back to our apartment

4) I invited my mum to come over on Saturday to bake holiday cookies

5) I still can't believe I am 24 but, in hindsight, my 24th year wasn't so bad. I am looking forward to this 25th year with a healthy dose of optimism that the I will find the answers to the changes I seek. Here's hoping for better job, better love and better life...


6) I just had a lovely phone conversation with a friend I haven't seen in years or talked to much in months.
