A nurse at the orthopedic clinic who can calm my fears over the phone, so I don't have to fit a drive to Madison into my schedule.
A wonderful physical therapist, who's getting a gift card to the best restaurant in town once I'm done with PT.
Liberal, progressive, friends who are compassionate, sane, and willing to work toward a better world for us all.
School prep. Creating new assignments and playing around with Word to make drawings of plate boundaries is so satisfying.
A daughter who is happy to move the car when it's in the way of a contractor. Yay! for teaching your kids to drive.
A daughter who is old enough to know what she needs in the way of school supplies and basically does the shopping for herself (we'll leave out the sky-high price of cheap PE shoes that seem especially worthless to me because PE is basically worthless).
An excellent cantaloupe.
An almost-red tomato in my garden!
A good friend who picks up the one item on the teacher's classroom list we couldn't find so I don't have to make a second Target run.
So, that's mainly people, plus fruit, vegetables, and a bit of intellectually engaging work. :-)
