I was just now thinking that things can't get worse. My apartment isn't just how I wanted it to be. My movers have backed out of tomorrow's appointment due to extreme ice and snow. And here I sit in an empty apartment. Okay, I've got my luggage and a new kitchen table and a neighbor's wifi to steal. That's all just great. Still, I'm pissy because something didn't go the way it was planned.
And then I saw my little silver mermaid on my bedroom ledge. And everything was all better. The mermaid is calm and serene and can take any curve balls Life throws her way. If she can do that, I can too.
Stuff really can make you happy.
