Recent good stuff:

     I got great airfare (and a direct flight too!) to visit family in May. But not without a little excitement. On Tuesday I casually did my daily price check while running a search in IDM Find. I was shocked to find that fantastic offer which let me extend my trip a day by flying back on a Saturday, of all days. So of course I jumped right on it, filled everything out...and my browser crashed when I tried to purchase. There had been other tabs opened, so I tried again with just Travelocity open...and it crashed again at the very same spot! I was ready to have a heart attack or chuck my pc across the room! I KNEW it was because of the old obsolete Explorer 7 browser my employer refuses to update, that works right with fewer and fewer websites each month. Thank God, I remembered that a tech person had brought a Windows 7 device into my area just the day before to do testing--so I scurried over there and got on that and surreptitiously purchased my airfare with no hitches on the IE 8 browser--hallelujah!! (Then I needed half an hour to get my blood pressure back to normal ;)

     Tuesday also brought treats in the form of the Credit Union associated with my employer having an open house. Dawn and I went over at 9. My mom had already told me that muffins don't count against my no-sweets Lent fast (unless they're chocolate or something like that) so I got to have a lemon poppyseed small muffin, a croissant, and some slices of strawberry and kiwi with grapes. What a lovely brunch!

     And then Tuesday evening I snagged the very last box of eggplant cutlets at Trader Joe's before heading to my women's group. Yay!
