The good outweighs the bad

I got my tickets yesterday to see Angela Lansbury in Blithe Spirit in January, woo hoo! I needed that pick me up early because I was in a bad mood for a bit. Thursday night, my mom called to say she'd been denied the two nights off she needed to come to the vow renewal. We were both pissed. But by the time she called me back Friday morning after her shift, she'd already decided she was going to come anyway. She's thisclose to retiring, she wants to quit anyway, and they're understaffed. She decided that if they wanted to be jerks about refusing, they could just fire her and then she'd collect unemployment. I don't think they will, though. They need her. They can't hold onto staff at all.

Alicia's dress arrived, and it's perfect. Looks a dream on her. We have to get her shoes and a special bra for it, but that's minor compared to the dress search.

It's going to be a good weekend. I have a galley to do, but I've got the beginning of a story I love to get back to and something to write for camelot_drabble. I might even be able to start the next chapter of "Let's Get Personal." I was in a mood last night where I didn't want to work on anything, but that was after being stuck on my computer all day. A person can only take so much, right? :)
