First, I got a nice little raise at work and some solid praise from my manager. I get to be a housewife and bring in a respectable salary--it's really the best of both worlds.
Second, and even more importantly, I found out that Jason will be returning in time for my sister's wedding! I have had a perma-grin on my face for the past few days. Even shelling out $800 for plane tickets home made me feel gleeful, because I was buying two tickets instead of one.
Then, my bridesmaid dress arrived this morning! Of course I had to rip it out of the plastic and have a fashion show. I guess I've lost some weight and inches since I was measured for it last year (woohoo!), because it was practically falling off of me, but it's nothing that a little taking in can't fix.
To make this week even better, today I went to see Wicked. It was every bit as good as I had hoped, and it even had an animal rights twist to the storyline that made my inner activist jump up and down in her seat. Furthermore, seeing a green lady flying in a harness made me think back to my own performing days, when I was the green lady in the harness--as Fruma Sarah in Fiddler on the Roof my senior year of high school. I didn't look half bad with green skin, either:
