Do you see the glass half full or half empty? Yesterday I received two surprises in the mail. A stimulus check from the government that I wasn't expecting, and a royalty check. I never know when I'm going to get one of those. Not a bad day for me, huh? Went to bed feeling pretty good.
Today I got another surprise in the mail. A bill for the taxes due on my house. Ever noticed how things seem to balance out somehow? I immediately started to bitch to myself. Things like, I should have known, and, it figures. Why me? There goes the Coach purse I was going to splurge on.
But then I gave myself hell. The tax bill I knew was coming, and it is nice to paying for it with money I hadn't been expecting. A nice feeling came over me.
I'm still ahead:)
