11/3: three things
1. I took my car in for an oil change and check-up today, and it turned out that some not-minor work needed to be done. I am grateful that we had the money to pay for it without having to worry or feel squeezed. When I was a child and money was tight in our family, things like car repairs were sources of anxiety, and I am glad that (luckily, for now at least!) that isn't the case.
2. I got enough advance-work done at school in the last two days, so I don't have to bring any grading or prep on my conference trip this weekend.
3. When I booked my flight to the conference, I got myself on a plane that leaves early tomorrow afternoon--which means that I have time to pack tomorrow morning and don't have to think about it tonight.
(And whenever I post three things I think of Meri and her blog; it's good to prompt myself to recognize more than one good thing in a day.)
