Today was a great day. I felt happy and light for no apparent reason all day. Decided to pay the utilities portion of my rental bill next Friday instead of this Friday, so that I could affort a visit to the optometrist and get some contacts. So I left work early...got my eyes checked out and brought home a couple of different types of contacts to try out. My prescription hasn't changed a lot. My left eye is slightly worse, and my right eye slightly better (Though last time I had my eyesight refracted, I was drinking about a fifth a day, so that's going to change things a bit right there.)
Had a fabulous dinner out with friends and a couple of their friends, then headed to LS for the first time in months. That was awesome too. Not the actual meeting, that was fine. Same old, same old. But catching up after was really great. I'd seen some people out and about living my daily life; but not all of my fond acquaintances. I loved catching up with everyone. Introduced myself to a couple of newbies; and in general socialized up a storm. Really restorative.
That being said, I didn't have a suddent epiphany about what I've been missing all these months. I think what I've been doing is really working for me. I'm going to stay on this path, firmly in my lane, and see what shows up. So far, so good.
