You know what? Nice things have been happening to me lately.
Fer instance: I found a pair of shoes in the basement. I forgot about them entirely. They are a pair of brown suede scuffs with the gores on the side. They are very comfortable, like wearing slippers. I must have put them on to run outside and bring in a load of firewood, shucked them in the basement, and promptly forgot about them. I love those shoes. Don't ask me how a person forgets about her comfy shoes, but lo, they are now found, and my life is good.
And know what else happened today? I got my hair cut.
What's up with you guys? This is my first real hair cut post chemo. I had too much hair. It was getting tufty and unruly. I GOT MY HAIR CUT!!!! And it is a nice cut. I like it. I feel stylish. I walked out of there feeling like a million dollars. Even better, I saw Laura from church. I grabbed her arm and whispered, "Laura! I just got my first hair cut." And she looked at me and said, "That's your real hair?!!!" Gaping, I said, "Well, yeah..." and she said, "Oh my gosh...all this time I thought you were still wearing your wig." Yeah. I was grinning.
And then I got home and know what else? There was a letter from the PA Treasury. The letter states that they have some money from 2003 that belongs to me. Certain that it was a big mistake, I called the toll free number, and was soon speaking to a nice lady. It's not a mistake. She's sending me the claim paperwork.
There was also another letter. From Verizon Wireless. It didn't take them 4 - 6 weeks to send me written verification that my non-existant cell phone account had been corrected after all. I was nearly speechless. It only took a week. I don't believe that I've ever had the opportunity to say 'Verizon' and 'efficient service' in the same sentence before. And it only took two days and three hours on the phone this time. Dang.
I'm leading a charmed life.
