Wondering where I’ve been?
Achieving minor life victories!
Successfully navigating the health insurance/healthcare maze, reducing a bill to $0: win. If I learned anything from my knee injury two years ago, it was how to really read my explanation of benefits and really check the bills from my providers. In this case, I was getting screwed from my provider, who was apparently billing me just for fun and/or to test my skills. Lucky for me, they were so nasty on the phone the first time I tried to rectify the problem that I was determined not to pay them a penny more than they were due. I dug in and called around and, nope, I am not paying a penny. Because I was right in the first place. Win.
Actually starting a book at a time in this year 2016 when I’m not even on vacation:
Finding my favorite rosé from my trip to France at a wine store here: win.
Finding a really inexpensive rosé that I also love: win.
Liberally hiding people on the Facebook: possibly the biggest minor win I’ve had in recent months. (And so well-timed with election season!) Does seeing your updates and/or pictures of your face make me sad, annoyed, bored, irate or disgusted? Girl, bye.
Transitioning to a new phone case: win. Okay, so I’m really weird and hate switching my phone case and this was a pretty big switch because I went from leather to some sort of a composite and this new case is a big change.
Sucking it up and updating my budget which I’ve needed to do for approximately 19 months: win.
Remembering to water my flowers and therefore keeping them alive during last week’s very warm weather: win. This is a very minor victory because I am currently obsessed with my gardens. More about that later.
Successfully giving way fewer fucks about a whole host of (ultimately unimportant) things: wins on wins on wins.
Have you had any minor life victories lately? Please share so that I can steal your genius and employ it in my own in-need-of-all-the-help-it-can-get life.
