A month ago I was moaning about the post-Christmas poverty I was feeling. Medical bills arrived out of nowhere and then there were the new brakes my mechanic said I needed.
Don't worry; I'm good at living
on less. I've been doing it for most of my life. Back in high
school my best friend gave me a copy of Judith Viorst's, Alexander
Who Used to Be Rich Last Sunday. She wrote me a note inside the front
cover telling me how I reminded her a bit of Alexander.
Last week I was able to work out
some of those medical bills with my insurance company, and then on Saturday I
found a check for almost $200 in my stack of unopened mail. Suddenly,
things were looking up.
Today another pleasant surprise
came my way. It seems my mother, who has a whole bunch of air miles to
spend, would like to go to England and Scotland this summer. She's
turning 80 in June and is up for a big treat for herself AND her two daughters.
Watch out UK...here we come!
