It's for a good cause...promise!

I just had to!
Don't judge me.

I really needed it!
Stop making that face.

I put money aside just for it, I swear.
I promise I'm not being reckless.
It was something I HAD to do...for my sanity, for my well-being, for my livelihood!!!


Isn't it pretty!???

Yeah, I know...it's been around for years, but I'm a loyal Verizon customer and it came in the mail today. I've saved and waiting and waited and saved for a long time for this and endured my Blackberry for 2 1/2 YEARS!! It really couldn't have come at a better time. Just today my BB decided to poop out on me with the sound. Not to mention all the other things that have malfunctioned with it.

I'm justifying this purchase, yes. I budgeted around this so I could get it and I AM THRILLED! It's weird seeing my blackberry sitting on the counter all the way over there...all alone...oh well, Au revoir!

It's also a little boost to my day. Okay! Big boost. Being sick for 7 days straight gets extremely old and was wearing me down quite a bit. Today is the first day that I've actually felt, almost myself.

I went to the retirement office this morning to turn in Dr.P's paperwork. Thankfully I got the same woman I met with at the first appointment. We officially made it a 'Non' industrial disability retirement. I'm happy to report that ALL the paperwork needed has been submitted and I am now completely out of the process. She said that, "hopefully" it will only take 6 months to come to a decision and not the full 9 months. So I'll just wait and see.

It's nice to have the full weight lifted on the work related/not work related issue and knowing that everything was submitted well under the 30 day deadline. I'm free of it and the extra secret silent stress that was lingering from it has now completely left me. aaaaawwww sweet release!

Now...back to my new toy...I mean my new practical extremely necessary piece of equipment. Pin It Now!

I was thinking of you tonight, and I felt like this verse was meant for you in this season:
Isaiah 43:1-3
"But now, this is what the LORD says—
he who created you, Jacob,
he who formed you, Israel:
“Do not fear, for I have redeemed you;
I have summoned you by name; you are mine.
When you pass through the waters,
I will be with you;
and when you pass through the rivers,
they will not sweep over you.
When you walk through the fire,
you will not be burned;
the flames will not set you ablaze.
For I am the LORD your God,
the Holy One of Israel, your Savior"
