I then paid for the driver behind my car! I saw a story on this on tv right before Christmas! So nice to see it actually happen.
    SWEET!!! Right after the New Year lots of folks were posting on facebook about pledging to do random acts of kindness. What a nice gesture and how nice of you to return the favor!

    We got ours, how about you? I'm spending the day with my daughter who goes back to college tomorrow to start her final semester! So I'm doing laundry, helping her pack, going shopping, going through my pantry to see if there's anything she wants to take back. Simple pleasures, all.

    Trouble holding a conversation with me. The sound of running water.

    Forcing my surgeon, who just insisted that there was no way workers' comp would approve more physical therapy for my shoulder, to make good on his promise to ask for more, even though he kept saying that they would definitely deny it, and then getting word that workers' comp has approved twelve more visits.

    Okay, it wasn't a simple thing. It took numerous phone calls and e-mails and a lot of stress on my part to get what I want, but the victory is so sweet. Not only do I get what I need, but my surgeon has to eat his words about it not being worth bothering to request more.

    Can I like this twice? So glad that your world has opened up. It reminds me of when I got contact lenses for the first time and being able to see the edges of leaves on the trees. I felt like Supergirl! (I was 16, after all)

    Ha! reading each other's minds.
    Simple pleasure this morning is that I hit the snooze alarm so many times I'd normally be rushing around now, but when I finally got up, I realized we have a professional development day at school today that starts an hour later than our usual schedule.
