Net Worth Week 92 – Birthday Edition

Gentle Readers,
Progress towards the new good-gig is happening. I got my fingerprints done. My nails looked fabulous, but the tech did not care. Current gig has been a little more in flux than I’d prefer. Lots of sitting around waiting for a task and being sent home early.
I figured out a portion of the problem with not receiving the estate paperwork I’ve requested. Neither the VA nor the medical school who accepted his body has signed the damn death certificate. Both are blaming the other. I’m going to keep calling until I annoy someone into signing this vital record. That does not explain why his life insurance paperwork has not even arrived for me to fill out and submit, but I am trying to focus on one thing at a time as possible.
My efforts to work a ton while also seeing friends is bearing fruit. I attended a free cabaret, I played soccer, I shared food with folks. It has been great for my psyche. I do wonder if I should not up the overtime even further; my roommates’ negligence regarding cleaning and the mouse situation grows more frustrating.
I send my brother the check to repay him! Not having that over my head feels wonderful! I don’t like and am not used to owing individuals money.
It’s my birthday week and letting my friends show up for me while also doing what I like without regard to anyone else’s plan has been nice. There is still bittersweet mixed in with the waiting, but I’m living my life.

  • Happy Birthday!

    Happy birthday, ZJ. I hope it was a day filled with good friends and copious libations. My birthday celebrations are pathetic. I gave up bread, but I allow myself to have pizza on my birthday. I normally go to Pizza Hut for this celebration (you can see I don’t have a sophisticated palate), but Mrs. G shamed me this year to up my game. So we went to this pizza joint that does wood-fired pizza with buffalo mozzarella. It was awesome.

    • Thank you! It was lovely! I’m glad you allow yourself pizza for your birthday. It is such a lovely thing to eat!

    • Thank you! I’m glad you allow yourself the majesty of pizza!
