So as I mentioned before, I don't usually ride on Monday and Tuesday evenings. Something about getting a new week going takes me a bit, and seeing as we usually ride on every other day, including Saturday and Sunday, letting Rev have a weekend doesn't worry me at all. I wasn't sure I was going to get to ride tonight, though. I'd finished my Christmas shopping and had X amount budgeted for gas and food.
Then my cat got sick.
The vet bill? Was X - $2. Welp, okay, I had it, and I have enough in my pantry to keep me fed. Not so much in the gas tank, though, with how much running around I'd had to do last week. So I used the last of it to go to work yesterday and planned to work from home today.
My best girl friend Paypalled me some money on Monday, but it takes time to get from there to the bank, so I was ready to accept having to stay home tonight too.
However, in a Yule-eve small miracle, the money arrived this morning. :) I get to ride tonight after all! And I can go to the grocery store and pick up a few things like lettuce, bread, lunch meat, eggs, and Ramen! Life is so good.
Seriously, y'all, it doesn't take much for me to be a happy camper. Joyous Yule to you all, happy second night of Hanukkah, Merry Christmas, happy Kwanzaa, and have a wonderful secular winter celebration.
