The Best Day

Friday is already my favorite day of the week, so anytime I wake up to one of those, the day can't be too terrible. Today was even better because when I woke up, I felt my wings begining to unfurl just a bit more (you did know that I'm an angel, right?) because last night, after 11 long years, I finally paid off my student loan. The 17th of every month (the same due date for each of those 11 years) no longer has any meaning to me, and that's such a nice feeling. When I whine about my useless degree (though I'd rather have it than not), I no longer need to complain that I'm still paying on something that didn't get me nearly as far as I'd believed in that "you can be anything you want to be" fantasy world. Now I still have the degree, whether
it's useful or not, and these brains are no longer mortgaged - they are all mine, baby!

Another good thing. So, I was running just a bit late and didn't get to stop for a latte on my way to work this morning, so on my lunch break I ran to the Starbucks expecting to order one of my usuals: a venti hazelnut non-fat latte or a venti soy latte, when I noticed to my sheer delight that IT's BACK! Pumpkin Spice Lattes are here again, and the world will soon know peace. The first sip of the season is such a happy event. Even better is knowing that just around the corner are my other friends, the Eggnog Latte, the Peppermint Latte, and the Gingerbread Latte.

Finally, since it should be fairly cool tonight, I will be able to wear the latest addition to my Hello Kitty pajama collection (thank all the stars that aligned when the concept of EBay was born), some very pink and very fleece and very cute (because Hello Kitty can't be anything but cute) and very warm new PJs! I tried counting the other day just how many different sets of Hello Kitty PJs I have, and I think these are my 7th or so (winter PJs, summer PJs and in-between PJs), all but a few purchased on EBay. Nothing is more wonderful than putting on some cozy PJs on a cool Friday night with a great big cup of coffee and staying up late just because you don't have to get up early the next morning. I live for these moments.

My life is grand.
