Boy, it turned out to be a very nice day. Ted and I went and watched Brother Bear, which was pretty good, and we bobbled by the comic shop, and the art gallery called us to tell us some of the artwork we’d brought over to be framed was done, and the X-Women print turned out *gorgeously*. Very happy! *beam*
Then in the mail today I got a congratulations card from my Aunt Ardie for selling US and its two sequels. *beam* It’s got a Thoreau quote on the front: “Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.” I liked that. :) Ardie says, “You and Thoreau apparently live by the same philosophy.” *beam*
There was also a very nice letter from Jennifer Jackson, welcoming me to the fold. :) I hadn’t expected that, although when I saw the envelope, I went ‘ah!’ and wasn’t surprised. :) Still, it’s really nice! *laugh*
And THEN! (It was a good mail day!) Then there was mail from the Alaska student loan people saying that Ted’s application to consolidate his loans had been successfully approved, and that the payments are now slightly less than half what they used to be. Now I have to call ’em and make sure the deferment is still in place since he’s back in school (I think it will be), but that’s a *much* smaller payment and a great relief. Yay!
This evening we watched Branagh’s Much Ado About Nothing and it’s still perfectly wonderful. :)
And that’s about everything! It’s been a good day!
