Positive Things

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.
