Jason has had his new job for over a month now. It is nice not having to panic at the thought of where we are going to get money for things we need.
I still don’t have insurance, but we are working on that. But that is a post for another day. And I am still waiting to hear something about the status of my disability case… but that too is a post for another day.
But I want to think of Positive things today. Kind of a wishlists, so to speak. With a steady income, there are a lot of things that we can now afford to get. Things that we need, things that we have held off on getting… and some things that I just REALLY want. :)
One thing we really need is a new mattress. The one we got shortly after we got married was inexpensive… and, well, we are paying for it now. I already have insomnia problems, and chronic pain, and a new mattress that is supportive could make a world of difference. I really like the Sleep Number beds, but they are a bit pricey. We will need to save up a bit, and figure out exactly what we want. But I know we need something better to help me (and so I don’t wake up with random dislocated body parts) feel better and actually sleep.
Jason wants to get a new car. I am not so sure that that is the best idea at the moment.
One of the things that I really want, and it is a want, not a need, is a pair of these AMAZING boots! They are Dark Turquoise, knee high leather boots, made by Gipsy Dharma. You can see them here http://www.gipsydharma.com/collections/all/products/dark-turquoise-knee-high-leather-boots They look so comfortable, and I love the color! With all my health issues, I have had to totally change what shoes I wear. No more heals. Everything has to be supportive, everything has to be “good” for my feet. And these look like they would be perfect, yet still look amazing! And, if I was wearing my compression sleeves under them – you wouldn’t be able to see them!
The lady who makes them runs a contest on Facebook every few weeks, giving away a pair. I keep entering, hoping to win. I really love all of the boots, and really want a pair, but they are very expensive. Winning a pair would be awesome, and get me a pair a lot faster. Other wise, it will probably be a while before I can save enough to actually order a pair.
I also would really really love to get my full back parrot wings tattoo. It would also be very very expensive, so I would have to save up for it. But I still want to get it. Parrot wings, in shades of blue, purple, and green.
