momentrabbit probably didn't mean to start a meme, but this is one that deserves wider exposure:

What's going right in your life today?

For my part, now that my two-job schedule juggling has calmed a bit, I just had my first two-day weekend in over six months.

Not only that, it was Saturday and Sunday ... and this trend will continue. This is the first time in over half a decade that I will be working job(s) that synchronize my two-day weekend with most of the western world's. (A regular schedule is not among the advantages of newspaper work.)

It felt glorious to once again have two days in a row! that I didn't have to drag myself out of bed and in to the office(s) for long stretches. I didn't get a whole lot of decompression time -- because kadyg and I went to the Beltaine celebration on The Ridge on Saturday, and I did a lot of driving Sunday while we shopped and I took her back to the train station for school -- but it was a lovely and novel feeling nonetheless.

And I get to turn around this weekend and do it all over again. *happy sigh*

What about you? What's fallen into place lately, or randomly resolved well, or taken a turn for the better?

I find myself having in-the-flesh meetings with people these days. It feels nice after so much time spent in hermitage.

Snagged and answered in my LJ. Didn't I say something about go to bed?

You did! So I went home after posting this. And I've been talking Go with Rob instead of sleeping but! at least I'm paying attention to the cats.

This year is the first time in 22 years of working that I've had weekends off.
It feels weird!!
And OMG!!! My family gets together WAY too much!!! I never realised how many family gatherings I was skipping until I started making all of them!

how embarrasing to fix a comment and leave more typos

I like this. And I have so needed it lately.

I have a <lj user="podisodd>, and a culluket, quite fantastically and unexpectedly in my life. I have a roof over my head, which can be traded at my leisure (if also expense) for a different roof if we so choose. I have a car that runs, which is a necessity in the Mid-Atlantic outside of the DC Metro area. Pod's medical mystery turned out to be okay, and I am not pregnant. And shortly I shall have two days off to wander around places I have never been in lovely weather with awesome people, instead of sleeping to catch up from my work schedule as things have been. The tradeable roof and car that works and the time outside are quite recent. My people just continually happily surprise me. Especially considering I have spent this week in a major panic about the things *not* going right and they pulled me out of it last night. Posting this is a really good reminder to myself to keep not panicking.

As of Monday Kevin and I will have survived the first month of being in a long distance relationship. While I am quite aware that isn't a very long time at all - for me it feels like things are going right because there was a hell of a lot of adapting to do to make this happen. Plus he sent me a surprise email and showing me his airline plans to come visit on the 21st of this month for 2 days!!! YEAH!
