Finally, a shiny day

I've been a little bit depressing for the past few posts, haven't I? Sorry. It's that time of year...too much darkness. Too much time indoors and not enough out. I thrive outside. I wither when I have to be inside too much. I'm withering. I'm counting down the days until the winter solstice (Dec. 22) when the days start getting longer again and we creep towards spring and glorious, healing sunshine.

But today it's sunny out (the first shiny day in the past 8 days!) and it's Friday and I have a few days off next week to burn up paid days off that I can't roll over to the new year. And this morning I discovered that every last one of my credit cards is PAID OFF! Except for the house (and the truck) I am entirely DEBT FREE! WHEEEE!! I have spent the past 6 years paying off more than $26,000 in credit card debt (with some cards sitting at 26 percent interest. Ouch.)

Life is good. And today is a good day.
